A lifelong Millwall fan has put pen to paper and named his son without consultation of his wife. Here is what he told a local paper,
“If David Beckham can name his son Brooklyn, then I can name mine Bermondsey. I just love Millwall … One of the women at the registry office was a Millwall fan and she loved it when she saw what we are going to name him. I threatened to do it but I don’t think my wife believed me! I’m not sure how she’s going to react.”
