Back Seat Baby?

Shortly after David Beckham announced that he would be creating a new line of boys clothing for Marks & Spencer, Blue Square (a British bookmaker) began offering odds of 20-1 that his unborn baby would be named Mark or Spencer.

It also offered odds of 1,000-1 that the child would be named... Nightclub Toilet.

[Among the other odds offered: Back Seat (500-1) and Geri (100-1). Another bookie (William Hill) also gave odds that the baby would be named after a football ground such as Trafford (50-1), Wembley (100-1), or Anfield (500-1). The baby was named Brooklyn.]
