  • "My boyfriend is called Jordan. Although it is apparently easy to pronounce, I have trouble. It just sounds wrong when I say it. His mum called him Jordan because it's a girl's and a boy's name, so she didn't have to put much effort into deciding when he was actually born. I'm not sure whether or not he likes his name, too many Katie Price jokes I suppose. But I love it, because I love him I don't like it when his mum calls him it though, because I don't like her. and also, Jordan is a unisex name so stop being so sexist and possesive saying that girls can't be called Jordan - because they can and they are."
