Without a shadow of a doubt buy it!!!!! 2k is a fair amount of money but in the bigger scheme of things it's not really that much considering that it will be with you for life and when your too old to hang it from your zimmerframe you can pass it on to your kids. I'm a sucker for private plates, always have been. Got a nice collection going including ones with my surname which like yours is fairly unusual and uncommon. Got one on the GTR and on the bike. If your fortunate to be able get something close or exactly what your surname is then in my eyes it's pretty much priceless. And as for being chavy I really don't think so.
