Hi all new on mumsnet pls help me for my daughters name
We have 3 decisions:-
Africa
India
Egypt
Thnx

Africa isn't a country.

The obvious (to me) school nickname for Egypt would be eedjit.

Ops I mean 'places' sorry

India is the only one that isn't really bizarre as a name from your list tbh.

Littlecherublegs Sun 10-Nov-13 13:11:54

India is the only one that is a name to me.

India is nice, the rest... No

Don't be stupid.

You are naming a person not a bloody pet.

Aberystwyth. Abi for short.

Marli1980 Sun 10-Nov-13 13:25:09

....? What does that matter? A place can be a persons name

Equatorial Guinea

Kenya, Chelsea.
Try here, OP.

Marli1980 Sun 10-Nov-13 13:31:39

Ok I am a joke? Thnx

SoupDragon Sun 10-Nov-13 13:31:58

It's your child who has to live with a stupid name, not you. You can not seriously be thinking of calling your child Belgium. If you are, I think you should hand the responsibility of naming this new person onto someone else.

Marli1980 Sun 10-Nov-13 13:32:14

Thnx lljkk lots of good ideas

Marli1980 Sun 10-Nov-13 13:32:55

This is why I want to rid a nice name? So asking for ideas

Ougadougou always slips nicely off the tongue I think.

Seriously, India was traditionally considered posh, but now isn't. I taught a little Spanish girl called Africa years ago, but she is the only Africa I have ever come across. Never heard of an Egypt human being. Kim Basinger's kid is called Ireland IIRC.

"stumbling onto the next Paris" isn't necessarily a good thing y'know....

How about Bolivia?

DrankSangriaInThePark Sun 10-Nov-13 13:34:12

"a place can be a name".

Yes, it sure can. As with many things in this life though, just because it can, doesn't mean it should.

Belgrade
Andorra
Monaco. That's a lifetime of torture all round. Monica? Monica?
Tirana
Vienna
Cairo
Kigali
Syria
Lusaka
