Just wanted to share some pearls of wisdom voiced by DS today. DS said that we should call the new baby "Oleg" like the baby meerkat on the Compare the Market adverts. He also warned us that "people babies are like meerkat babies, they are eating and pooping machines"!!

He has also suggested "Anton" as in Anton Du Beke from Strictly or "Gruffalo" or "Yoda"

My DH suggested it as a middle name. That's the power of advertising, although I think he was mostly joking!

AlwaysDancing1234 Sat 11-Jan-14 21:32:04

I think we need to switch off the tv too! We don't even know if it's a boy or girl yet. DS suggested Katie Morag for a girl!

Haha, someone on the June ante natal thread has a son who wants their baby to be named "underpants Elliot"!!

Cariad007 Sat 11-Jan-14 21:51:31

Well my brother wanted to name my youngest brother MacGyver! It was the 80s...

AlwaysDancing1234 Sat 11-Jan-14 21:55:38

Loving the alternative name suggestions!

A friend's son wanted to call his new baby sister "Milkshake" because he likes milkshake and he likes her too!

LexieSinclair Sat 11-Jan-14 21:57:12

My DD wanted DS to be called Jackie, if he was a girl. smile

DS wanted Ajay, after the train driver in Postman Pat. At least that's fairly sensible.

AlwaysDancing1234 Sat 11-Jan-14 21:58:58

Ha ha what flavour Milkshake though?

firstbaby01 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:00:17

LOL! My DP wants to call ours Xena warrior princess if its a girl and Loki-Thor if its a boy. he was being serious too!

AlwaysDancing1234 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:02:31

Lexie I like that your Dd was thinking outside the box!
Lily I think Postman Pat is the reason for the name 'Julian' being suggested too. Better than trying to call the baby Iggle Piggle I suppose!

AlwaysDancing1234 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:03:38

firstbaby I bet my DS and DH would love both of those suggestions!

One child in my family suggested 'Eagle' for the new sibling. Though nowadays that's not even particularly outlandish. Another suggestion was 'Tonyblair'.

VJONES1985 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:06:16

Can't stop laughing at the thought of my baby being called Gruffalo Jones...

AlwaysDancing1234 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:09:38

I reckon there probably is already a kid out there called "Eagle"!!
vjones I think Gruffalo Jones has a certain ring to it but what would you have as a middle name? grin

MrsGiraffe12 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:12:53

My son has asked if we can call the baby Seamus if he/she is ginger (after the wwe wrestler) x

VJONES1985 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:15:27

Gruffalo Yoda Jones? Gruffalo Indiana Jones?

sillymillyb Sat 11-Jan-14 22:21:40

My nephew (7) was convinced my whole pregnancy that my ds was going to be called Elmo.

He was there when the hv came round for the first time after the birth and he took her to one side and said, "sillymilly is very confused, she keeps calling it Henry by mistake" it was hilarious, he has this confused look on his face as if I was a moron!

AlwaysDancing1234 Sat 11-Jan-14 22:27:13

VJONES Gruffalo Indiana is the best, I would love to see the registrars face when you fill out the form for the birth certificate!!

haha this is funny. although if you hop over to baby names im sures theres worse names under serious consideration! im 37 weeks and we dont agree on a single name; may well be open to toddlers suggestions (i predict piggle, thomas, monkey, tomliboo etc)

DS thinks we should call our new baby 'cheesebaby'. He falls about laughing every time he says this, but has failed to come up with any alternatives.

AlwaysDancing1234 Sun 12-Jan-14 14:33:49

I had a quick look on the baby names threads and quite frankly the names listed here are no more ridiculous than some of the real serious suggestions people have made on the baby names threads!! confused

DS strongly favoured "Pizza Poo" as a name for DS2. Expanded to "Pizza Poo Willy Bum Bum" if he was in company that he thought might be entertainingly shocked by such language.
