Northumberland man Ian Clark, taking the advice of his four-year-old step-daughter Maddy (and completely ignoring the wishes of his partner Melanie Robinson) named his newborn daughter Meggie Maisie Lady Gaga.
Here’s how Ian explained it:
When I asked the children what we should call the new baby, Maddy said we should call her Lady Gaga. I just thought it was a great name and I’m sure the bairn will find it funny when she’s older.
Here’s what Melanie had to say:
I can’t believe he actually went ahead and did it. Ian thought it was a really good idea but I told him no way. […] I’m still in shock now.
Thankfully it’s just a middle.
UPDATE, 2012: Ian and Melanie have since a baby boy, ostensibly named Tommy Will.i.am, middle name after will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas. (Dad plans to call son Will.i.am)
