A perfectly lovely name that doesn’t open itself up to mocking and ridicule. Well, that’s no fun! No fun at all. They could at least have had the decency to name her after a fruit. Like Pomme. (France’s answer to Apple Martin.)
But alas… France’s First Lady made the announcement on her official Web site, telling everyone, “I am deeply touched by the many messages of congratulations that I have received since the birth of our daughter.”
Weighing in at 7½ lbs., little Giulia was born on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in Paris. Her père (Look out! I’m breaking out the fancy French again!), 56, has already been to the hospital twice on Thursday to check in on his family.
Congratulations on li’l Pomme! Er… I mean, Giulia. *Sigh*
