    "Schofield, however, briefly got his own back on Hopkins after she revealed that she disliked geographical names, citing Brooklyn and London – pointing out: ‘You have a child called India."

    [From here, as I can't load the video for some reason.]

    FFS why do TV show keep getting idiots on?

    What a vile, poisonous little woman. Let's hope her children grow up to be decent people in spite of their mother.

    I may come in for some critisicm here, I do kind of agree in some degree to what she was saying.

    Can you honestly say that when you have heard a childs name in school that you havent raised an eyebrow, rolled your eyes or thought 'I bet he/she is a little darling' ?

    If I don't know the child, then yes, I can say that. My judgement on their parents however is leaping around in my head all over the place! Which is also probably a bit wrong though......

    There's a difference between thinking the child may be a troublemaker but still letting them prove themselves, and just assuming the worst because of their name.

    Although I can, with [currently] 100% accuracy, tell if a child has manners by what school they go to. [in this area... OK, if they're from one specific school, I know they have no manners from experience.]

    Very true but you are still preconceiving what that child is likely to behave like from their name, which is what the silly moo on that video was trying to get at but doing it all wrong.

    I think a child's name may tell you something about their background - I said MAYBE - but it doesn't tell you how that child has been brought up and how he or she behaves. As a parent I would never judge a child as being unsuitable for my child as a friend until I knew them.
    A teacher friend of mine has just had a hysterical parent approach her because her son "isn't with his friends" next year. The boy in question IS with one of the friends he chose and the lad is perfectly fine - not very bright and a bit scruffy but caring and thoughtful. The parent revealed that it was all snobbery when she asked if he could be with Jack, because she knows Jack's parents, or Lucas, ditto, etc etc.

    My son has an unusual name so maybe I am particularly non-judgemental on this issue

    She's always been a terrible snob, always says 'we' and 'everyone' when she means 'me'



    did anyone see her on 10 o'clock live? It was appalling...

    I would have thought that would have made you more judgmental. I wouldn't be happy if people treated my kids differently because of their name.

    She is a vile woman.... however, I don't have children I have a furbaby and sometimes I do cringe when i hear that other dogs (specially Bull Terrier types) have names like Diesel, Tyson, Rambo and the like. But dogs are dogs and children are human being and will eventually make their own mark in life, so it has nothing to do with the name their parents had given them.

    [TANGENT]...and then they come out with stuff like "but Throat Ripper was always such a soppy dog, he'd never harm a fly" when their creature attacks someone's pet/child/grannie.[/TANGENT]
