This is all light hearted, because of course I wouldn't repeat this to my friend, but I can't help but bloody feel for her girls! grin

No word of a lie, the girls are going to be called Chummy and Bonnie! AIBU to say these names are a bit.. Something?

Chummy?!

KateUpton Fri 18-Dec-15 21:01:18

Oyster yes, she insists its a 'down to earth' name blush

Are you about to dripfeed that they're Labradors?

KateUpton Fri 18-Dec-15 21:01:41

They're twin HOMO SAPIEN girls grin

SaucyJack, I came on this thread to say those names sound like dog food brands. grin

Is Chummy short for something? Cholmondelina perhaps?

Is your friend aware she's having daughters and not puppies?!

KateUpton Fri 18-Dec-15 21:04:12

Afraid not, they're full names. I made the mistake of asking what they're short for, and I won't say what look I got in return envy

I'm afraid that Miranda Hart and the Blue Peter dog spring to mind.

janethegirl2 Fri 18-Dec-15 21:04:27

I agree, nice names for labradors smile

chantico Fri 18-Dec-15 21:04:40

I thought dog food brands too.

Is there any possibility you misheard? Especially the pedigree Chummy?

YerTiz Fri 18-Dec-15 21:04:53

Chummy - wasn't that Miranda harts character in call the midwife?

janethegirl2 Fri 18-Dec-15 21:05:11

The only Bonnie I know is a golden retriever, and I know no Chummys

MrsH1989 Fri 18-Dec-15 21:05:12

I could get on board with Bonnie but Chummy? I have heard some equally bad names recently such as Bunty, Sunbeam and a friend who said she would call her son roast (if she ever had one). WTAF?

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 18-Dec-15 21:05:13

Human girls called Chummy and Bonnie?!

Poor Chummy. At least she's got a support system from day one. She'll need it.

What are the parents like? Will Bonnie and Chummy have a good pedigree?

Ba-doom-tish.

KateUpton Fri 18-Dec-15 21:05:29

I didn't mishear, and what's more, I know it's spelt like that because any posts about the twins includes their names santa

Chummy is ridic. So Chummy from Call the Midwife, is it a pet name or a shortened/nick name? Sorry to be thick.

janethegirl2 Fri 18-Dec-15 21:06:01

Spit roast grin

KateUpton Fri 18-Dec-15 21:06:30

MrsH lets hope her son isn't born on a Sunday grin

VoldysGoneMouldy Fri 18-Dec-15 21:06:51

Chummy is ridiculous.

MrsBobDylan Fri 18-Dec-15 21:07:16

Bonnie is cute, but Chummy...heavens!

mrsleomcgary Fri 18-Dec-15 21:07:46

Bonnie isnt THAT unusual here in Scotland - it's not common but it wouldnt make anyone go hmm! But chummy sounds like a posh labrador,and the two together are bloody awful!

YerTiz Fri 18-Dec-15 21:07:48

Moonriver it was a nickname, real name Camilla!
