Brooklyn Beckham has been mocked by social media users after claiming combined surnames are a “new thing” he and his wife started.

Brooklyn and Nicola Peltz married earlier this year in a three-day extravaganza in Palm Beach, and soon after it was revealed that they decided on double-barreled surname.

The aspiring chef took to Instagram with a photo of himself and Nicola on their wedding day, writing the caption: “Mr & Mrs Peltz Beckham.”

This week, in an interview with Variety, the 23-year-old spoke about his marriage and his new surname, saying that the pair started “a new thing”.

He said: “We had this idea. We kind of combined our last names. I was just like, oh, we could start a new thing, and it’ll be so cool to have our own kids and have little Peltz Beckhams running around.”

Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz made their debut as a married couple at this year’s Met Gala following their star-studded Florida wedding last month. The event took place at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, with the theme of Gilded Glamour.

The comment has had fans in a frenzy, with some reminding the son of David Beckham that he hasn’t “invented double barrelled names”.

One person wrote: “Brooklyn Beckham introducing double barrel surnames to the world is akin to Alexandra Burke bringing 'elephant in the room' to the UK”

Another said: “Does Brooklyn Beckham think he invented double barrelled names?”

A third commented: “As if I’ve not had a double barrel surname for the last 31 years”

However some of Peltz-Beckham’s fans believe the comment has been misunderstood, and the “new thing” would be a different surname for the “legacy” of their future kids.

One person wrote: “Am I the only who thinks that he meant that combining both their surnames would be a new thing to create a legacy for their children. Instead of just Beckham.”

People are being purposely obtuse obviously he meant creating their new family name & not introducing the concept,” another said.

Overall, many fans have been impressed that Brooklyn has also taken the double-barreled surname himself, and not just Nicola.

The requests for newlyweds to retain their maiden name and take their partner’s surname alongside it rose by 30% between 2020 and 2021, according to the Deed Poll Office.

The social media debate about Brooklyn’s last name comes after he revealed plans to open a pub in LA, which will serve “a healthier version of comfort food.”

Having previously studied photography, he is currently training to become a chef and will release a branded food product later this year.

Brooklyn has been sharing dishes on Instagram with his over 14million followers.
