Experts are predicting a sudden upsurge in parents naming their newborn daughters Pippa following last year’s royal wedding. In what is commonly known as the 'Kylie Effect', parents are expected to be influenced by the strong royal connection and by Pippa Middleton's incredibly hot buns.
Leading nameologist Monica Smith said "I was chatting with a heavily pregnant checkout girl at Asda. She told me that she was hoping for a girl so she could name her baby Pippa after Kate’s hotter sister. It occurred to me that this might be a trend so I have spent the last 3 months talking to pregnant women." This type of research is not without it's risks, Monica told us, "I've been slapped by several fat lasses in my quest for knowledge but hope that the invaluable information I have gained will help to influence the future of tacky gift items."
Health visitor throughout the country are bracing themselves for a spate of late night calls from distressed parents who have just found out that their baby girl's name is short for Phillipa.
