Dear Mrs. Hopkins,
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Shakespeare
It’s taken me a week to think about how I feel about your “snobbish attitude” on the This Morning show. At first I was horrified and astonished. Horrified that you are so narrow minded and astonished that you spoke the way you did on national television!! Then I pondered on it some more and I thought well hats off to you for being brave enough to come out with such snobbery on National television. I mean that takes guts, to have that many people despise you and be okay with it.
When I got over that I re-watched it and I was actually quite amused. I feel like it’s more about race than name but you don’t want to be called racist and so you’d rather be called a class’ist (yes I made that word up!) But what really amused me was the hypocrisy of it all. You say you don’t like location names like Brooklyn or London but your daughter is called India. Your other daughter is Poppy (a flower) and your son is Max (my best friends dog was called Max). Although I also know some lovely people called Max. My point is, your statements don’t even stand true in your own family. And Katie, Should I compare you to Katie Price, a.k.a. Jordan? Her children with Peter Andre are called Junior Savva Andreas Andre and Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre. Shock Horror!
Perhaps rather than judging innocent children by the names they haven’t even chosen for themselves, you should spend time with your kids educating them about being good people, working hard, being respectful to all those they meet, no matter if they have rich parents or are from council flats. But hopefully since you work so very hard and believe women should go back to the work place as soon as possible post partum, your kids will be better educated with their nannies and the posh schools you send them to.
