A gag about David and Victoria Beckham's choice of names for their children has been declared the funniest joke at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The quip, by deadpan Canadian comic Stewart Francis, picked up one-fifth of votes in a poll of comedy fans organised by TV channel Dave.

The winning joke - "You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks" - comes from Francis's current show, Return of the Lumberjacks.

The names of the couple’s children are Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Seven.

The competition, which has been running for five years, enlisted the help of 10 comedy critics to draw up a shortlist of gags.

Perhaps we can all nominate our choice for the worst celebrity baby names ever - there are some real horrors out there.

My choice is Frank Zappa (and his wife of course) who blessed their children with these names:

Moon Unit
Dweezil
Ahmet Emuuka Rodan
and, saving the worst till last - Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen

The Beckham children got off lightly by comparison!

Then of course we have the Geldof girls: Fifi Trixiebelle, Peaches Honeyblossom, Little Pixie and (again possibly saving the worst till last) Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily.

I don't think they're as bad as the Zappas though.
