She is not the Messiah, she is a very naughty girl!

Today's news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have named their new baby daughter, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt bring to mind that famous scene from Monty Python's 'The Life of Brian', starring Aberystwyth's very own Sue Jones Davies. Shiloh is a Hebrew word which translates roughly as "the peaceful one" and is taken by Christians to mean the messiah.

'New Messiah' may prove to be burdensome and overly pretentious name for the child of two film stars or indeed, for any child. It may be said that Pitt and Jolie have an over-inflated view of their own importance.

N.B. Can anybody confirm whether Sue Jones Davies was actually Mayor of Aberystwyth at some point?
