What’s in a name?

I’m not unduly fussed by the news that David Beckham’s newly born child is also called Harper. After all imitation is often described as the most sincere form of flattery.

Ever since David and I both attended the same school – Chingford Senior High: he as a pupil, myself as a teacher – our lives have intertwined. His children have not only been named after the road we live in but, also, the NUMBER!

How eerie is that?
