Liam Gallagher has told how Yoko Ono once told him he was “silly” for naming his son Lennon after her late husband John Lennon.
According to Liam in an interview with the Daily Mirror he said:
“Yoko said, ‘I’ve heard you’ve called your son Lennon’.
“I said, ‘Yeah’, she said, ‘Why? Do you not think it’s a bit of a silly name?’
“And I said, ‘No, it’s a bit silly being called Yoko isn’t it? So Lennon it is.’
“And she said, ‘Don’t you think he’ll get picked on in school?’ I was like, ‘Nah man, he’ll be buzzing with that name.’”
Liam’s son Lennon was born on the 13th September 1999 and his mother is singer and actress Patsy Kensit.
