My friend is pregnant and is having a girl. She has chosen her DD name. It is a location-drink type name like Glasgow-buckfast but not quite.

I smiled and said it was unique and quietly changed the subject. She has told several people who I have also spoken to. They think its funny and the wee girl will laughted at or will become some sort of chavy/neddy type.

I think its a daft name but not the worst one I have heard recently. Usually I would say her DD her choice but as someone with an odd name who was bullied at school I feel like I should say something.

Aibu to say something? Surely she would have thought about the slagability of the name? Help.

Is it Paris-Chardonnay? shock

Maybe they are just pulling everyone's leg and they don't want to share their actual name choice until the birth?

Even if not, don't say anything!

Oh OP, you know we are going to need the name right?

Basingstoke-Sunny Delight?

I wouldn't say anything. It's her choice. I know a Cerise-Pink who loves her name.

If it was one of my friends I'd laugh and tell her it's terrible but I tend to have those kind of relationships.

Ashby De La Zouch-Lambrini?

It's not your place to say anything and your opinion will not be appreciated.

Just leave them to it.

As ThewordofBagheera said they could be keeping the actual name choice secret until the baby is born.

I wouldn't say anything if it was my friend everybody has a different idea of good/nice names. Me and my hubby went traditional for a name when our son was born but my sister went very unusual for her baby daughter.

I expect they are pulling your leg. We told everyone a crazy name because I was sick of people asking and knew of I told them dds actual name that eyebrows would be raised

She's not naming your baby so I think keep quiet. Though sometimes I think 'wtf' to myself haha

I want to know what the name is now!

Scunthorpe-WKD? Southend-Chambord? Runcorn-Rum? (That last one sounds like a great name for a racehorse actually.....)

It's classy.

munkisocks Sat 27-Feb-16 16:10:35

I'm thinking India-Bailey but I think it'd be better as Scunthorpe-Gin
