Mooney Gideons

Not the bible lot, just people named Gideon.


I'd never trust anyone called Gideon.
Especially when it comes to financial transactions or questions of taxation.

Even if they changed their name by deed poll, you could
still tell they were a Gideon. They can't hide their nature.

Not very PC, but there you go.

Who the **** lookedat a baby born after about 1868 and thinks "Let's call him........Gideon. He looks like a Gideon"

Though to be fair, the Gideon we are currently saddled with does look like a right erm, Gideon.

Is Gideon not the name of the cat sidekick to the con-artist fox
in Pinocchio? Proof, if needs be ...

My brother taught Radio presenter Gideon Coe to ride a bicycle. He was very complimentary on his radio show the next week. For that reason, I disagree with your Gideon theory.
He wrote this "“Wobbly life on two wheels has been experienced - thanks
to a brilliant teacher. Onwards!”

Broader subject I know, but in terms of poor name choices I have to say that anyone nowadays who opts for Gideon or Rupert for a boy needs shooting. Both are now very clearly by-words for chinless shysters.
