A little girl has joined DD's nursery.
Her name is CUPCAKE.

I suppose it is nicer than Fishfinger, or Potato.

(Oh. If the mum is a Mumsnetter: Hello mum of Cupcake!
So...
... cough...
...Are you going to the summer fair on Saturday? smile)

2012 got to be chocopop! Butterfly bun or french fany would be fun.

Amazed at how polite everyones being!

Oxford Reading Tree were ahead of their time. They had a Chip.

How about a more recession name, in tune with the times. Cupcakes just make her sound a child of the greedy nighties.

FootballFriendSays Tue 10-Jul-12 16:14:50

FFS the greedy noughties.

squoosh Tue 10-Jul-12 16:14:59

Soreen is more recession sounding

NorbertDentressangle Tue 10-Jul-12 16:16:14

I prefer Battenberg as a sibling name TBH

squoosh Tue 10-Jul-12 16:17:34

Ah it's a child who was born at the height of cupcake ridiculousness!

Perfectly fine then. Yep.

But all children born this year whose parents want to follow the cake related theme need to pick either Soreen or Eccles. Less frivolous than cupcake.

Needs a brother called cookie or crumpet

kickingKcurlyC Tue 10-Jul-12 16:18:20

Haha Soreen!

FootballFriendSays Tue 10-Jul-12 16:18:46

Batty. Yes, would work.

Soreen is quite Danish sounding.

WifiNappies Tue 10-Jul-12 16:19:36

Maybe it's like this lady
Not her real name but her siblings always called her it and it 'became' her name. Even the BBC call her Piggy shock

crumpet... mmmm now im hungry!

Why would anyone look at their perfect beautiful new child and think 'I'm going to condemn you to a life of ridicule and embarrassment'?

IMeMine Tue 10-Jul-12 16:21:35

Bloody hell! That is even worse than apple.

lisaro Tue 10-Jul-12 16:21:45

As I said to my sons Jaffa-cake and hob-nob.....

CurrySpice Tue 10-Jul-12 16:21:53

Is it hyphenated? Cup-Cake

whattodoo Tue 10-Jul-12 16:21:59

Barm

5madthings Tue 10-Jul-12 16:22:07

maybe she has another name on her bc but is known as cupcake, my ds2 is oscar reuben but for ages got called fruitcake, he still does sometimes and i dont even like fruitcake, nasty stuff filled with dead flies! grin

CoffeeGoneColdAgain Tue 10-Jul-12 16:22:17

grin Thats brilliant! Although I prefer CakePop, then the nickname could be Pops or poppy haha!

lisaro Tue 10-Jul-12 16:23:08

And our new baby, Krispy Kreme.

DS3 is starting school in September with a little (white, broad Geordie) girl called Cherish.

mumnosbest Tue 10-Jul-12 16:23:55

Can you imagine at a party "cupcake?"
At school "who likes cupcakes?"
Later on in life could get a name for herself "whos had the cupcak?"

FootballFriendSays Tue 10-Jul-12 16:24:27

Back later, my Flapjack and Linseed need feeding.

ThePathanKhansWitch Tue 10-Jul-12 16:25:48

Could be worse, coulda been Mooncupcake grin.

squoosh Tue 10-Jul-12 16:27:16

Oh Barm is pretty whattodo. Well not pretty exactly, more ugly I suppose. But you'd trust a woman called Barm. She'd be stout and efficient. The sort of person who'd re-tile her own roof, just for fun.

What about her twin siblings, Bara and Brith?
