OK, I don't expect everybody to know stuff about the Beatles to the degree that I know stuff about the Beatles. But this is just a basic error, and People Magazine, of all things, should have caught it:

Stella McCartney and her husband have named their infant son. Miller Alasdhair James Willis was born Friday in London, weighing 7 pounds, 7 ounces. McCartney, the daughter of Paul McCartney, and her husband, Alasdhair Willis, turned to her family name for their son's third name, People magazine said Tuesday.

The 33-year-old fashion designer has a grandfather named James Paul McCartney and a brother named James Louis McCartney.

Hello! She also has a father named James Paul McCartney! Everybody knows that, right? Right? It's not just me? (Please say it's not just me.)

Nope. It's just you.

Who is this McCartney fella, anyway?

Phineas @ 03/02/2005 12:56 PM CST

Oh, right, James McCartney. Wasn't he with The Smiths?

He's an actor whose films include "Give My Regards to Broad Street," with Tracey Ullman.

And also Richard Starkey, of "Caveman" fame.

Is he related to my ex-boyfriend Bryon Paul McCartney?

Brenda @ 03/02/2005 02:39 PM CST

I don't see how he could NOT be!

Amy C @ 03/02/2005 03:14 PM CST

Richard Starkey! I know him! He played Frank Zappa in "200 Motels"!
