Parker Bridge

lchats Fri 18-Oct-13 13:54:50

Boy or girl?

lchats Fri 18-Oct-13 13:56:43

Ahh boy - just checking smile

oldboiler Fri 18-Oct-13 14:01:28

His other son is called Jaydon. Says it all.

BettyBi0 Fri 18-Oct-13 14:01:33

I always saw Parker as a girls name

willyoulistentome Fri 18-Oct-13 14:01:59

The only Parker I knew was a dog.

LackaDAISYcal Fri 18-Oct-13 14:02:40

Who are Frankie Sandford and Wayne Bridge?

picnicbasketcase Fri 18-Oct-13 14:03:05

Not that bad a name generally speaking but not great with that surname.

Thunderbirds fan?

Parker Bridge? That did make me laugh for some unknown reason.

MrsBungle Fri 18-Oct-13 14:05:17

Not my cup of tea but it's not really terrible.

mumofthemonsters808 Fri 18-Oct-13 14:06:03

I also thought it was a girls name.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Fri 18-Oct-13 14:06:26

Park at a Bridge

TheNunsOfGavarone Fri 18-Oct-13 14:22:25

I always thought it was a surname. Really not sure why people would choose an inoffensive but very ordinary surname for their child when there are so many gorgeous names around.

And Parker Bridge just sounds too traffic-ey somehow.

Choccyhobnob Fri 18-Oct-13 14:38:37

I don't mind the name Parker I guess although it reminds me of Thunderbirds and the annoying character in Friends played by Alec Baldwin! But Parker Bridge doesn't go well to my ears.

daughterofafarmer Fri 18-Oct-13 14:48:59


Don't mind Parker, heard worse, heard better. Agree with thenuns sounds too traffic like . At least it's not London grin

Parker is a great name, but not with their surname. I've always thought of it as a boys name.

daughterofafarmer Fri 18-Oct-13 14:55:13

Ohh her off The Saturday's...

Get it now.

squoosh Fri 18-Oct-13 15:46:20

Parker Bridge does sound odd, trafficy and carparky.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Oct-13 15:52:57

I like the name Parker.

Would like to know what oldboilers getting at though.

Although I have no clue who the couple are tbh.

Another interested to hear what oldboiler means.

Parker Bridge sounds fine to me. Heard worse.

MaryBerrysBlazer Fri 18-Oct-13 16:39:21

Ah don't be so mean.

Parker is a fine name.

oldboiler Fri 18-Oct-13 18:19:57

He is a footballer and they generally lack class, hence the names. Although do prefer Parker to Jaydon.

ShadeofViolet Fri 18-Oct-13 18:21:53

I like Parker

But I dont think it goes well with the surname.

BadCopCostumeNoDonut Fri 18-Oct-13 18:26:03

Parker is generally a boys name in the US. I've known several. Not a bad name, just a bit funny with the surname Bridge.

I like Parker. Not sure about how it sounds with the surname but Parker is perfectly nice.

I have a large soft spot for Cooper if we're talking occupation names.

Parker Sandford would work better.

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 18-Oct-13 20:17:12

I thought that Thisisaeuphemism

How can we let frankie know?!

squoosh Fri 18-Oct-13 20:20:50

I think most names would sound better followed by Sandford rather than Bridge.

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 18-Oct-13 20:25:57

Twitter I reckon grin

Not true swoosh; London, tower, and Westminster suit bridge rather than Sandford.

imofftolisdoonvarna Fri 18-Oct-13 21:43:58

I love the way that usualsuspect comes onto any potentially 'chavvy' baby name thread to declare that she loves the name and berate people for being judgy.

It's almost as certain as the sun rising and setting, I reckon she must have some kind of baby name homing device that beeps wildly when anyone on mumsnet insinuates that a name might be a bit 'chav'.

I don't mind Parker I guess, but it's no different from all the other surnames names that are trying to be a bit unique, e.g.. Cooper, Grayson, Quinn etc.

congrats to them both though, now will it be molly or Vanessa next....?

Parker Sandford Bridge?
Maybe not smile

everlong Fri 18-Oct-13 21:48:37

Too surnamey.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Oct-13 21:52:22

I reckon you need to stfu.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Oct-13 21:53:39

That was to imofftolisdoonvarna

BooItTooJulia Fri 18-Oct-13 21:55:07

Imoff, that was nasty. And unnecessary. Take a day off, eh?

imofftolisdoonvarna Fri 18-Oct-13 21:55:34

Ooop, back again!

usualsuspect Fri 18-Oct-13 21:56:25


Alisvolatpropiis Fri 18-Oct-13 21:57:50

I hope Frankie never takes to Mumsnet hmm

MrsDeVere Fri 18-Oct-13 22:00:49

How fucking rude you are Imoffto

You should get on well with oldboiler

5madthings Fri 18-Oct-13 22:01:57

i like the name Parker, makes me think of desperate housewives as lynette? had boys named parker, porter and preston? and the girls penny and paige smile

have to say i dont like giving all.your kids the same initials but it was only a tv show.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Oct-13 22:03:36

I've had a ticket of a week so come on imofftolisdoonvarna, give it your best shot.

usualsuspect Fri 18-Oct-13 22:04:41

Fucker not ticket.

This kindle might be next to get it.

Looks like someones got their goady pants on.

Don't bother entertaining them Usual.

MsJupiterJones Sat 19-Oct-13 08:55:52

I just thought, 'a ticket of a week', that's a good phrase, never heard it before, so I'm disappointed it's an autocorrect. May adopt it anyway.

I love surnamey names so think Parker is cool but agree it goes better with Sandford.

I quite like surname type names but it would be better with a surname other than bridge.

I didn't read imoff as being rude/offensive I read it as 'usual suspect comes to the rescue again of judging names as 'chavvy' horay'
Perhaps I read it wrong.

TondelayoSchwarzkopf Sat 19-Oct-13 10:15:34

Footballers lack class. What an original thought. hmm

I personally don't like Parker with that surname and prefer it for girls (Parker Posey) but it's a perfectly name in itself.

AvonCallingBarksdale Sat 19-Oct-13 10:32:50

I actually really like the name Parker.

sleepingbeautiful Sat 19-Oct-13 16:09:19

It just reminds me of the wrinkly plastic chauffeur puppet in Thunderbirds.
I hope they don't have a future DD called Penelope...

Butwilliseeyouagain Thu 24-Oct-13 04:31:34

I hear Park a Bridge.

Not that that's terrible or anything. Bridge is probably a bit of an unfortunate surname.

foofooyeah Thu 24-Oct-13 04:48:07

He will get called nosey parker at school. I immediately thought of thunder birds too.

It's fine. Not ridiculous, just not that nice. But if they like it, great.

At least they didn't do a Beckham and name him Brooklyn. That would be unfortunate.

MortifiedAnyFuckerAdams Thu 24-Oct-13 06:23:51

Parker Bridge. Sounds like a suicide location to me sad

Butwilliseeyouagain Thu 24-Oct-13 07:13:09


Mckayz Thu 24-Oct-13 07:17:23

It's much better than lots of celeb names. North West being one of them!!

seasidethrills Thu 24-Oct-13 07:58:35

I really like the name Parker..

PoppyAmex Thu 24-Oct-13 21:08:13


Parker Bridge is a Recruitment Agency in Sydney.

MoreThanWordsforAnyFucker Thu 24-Oct-13 21:13:33

Does no-one my age (mid 40s) remember Parker Steph(v?)enson in The Hardy Boys? He was bloody gorgeous!

MoreThanWordsforAnyFucker Thu 24-Oct-13 21:14:21

And married to Kirstie Alley!

I LOVE "a ticket of a week". Sounds like something an actor in a WWII film might say.

Unlike Parker <runs>
