Toddlers - Dick and Fanny.
Not short for anything, apparently. British family.

Are you sure these are their real names? confused

x2boys Wed 09-Mar-16 19:21:48

Have they been reading enid Blyton?

Please tell me this is a joke.

They are probably called Richard and Frances and the parents are introducing them as Dick and Fanny.

Urban myth surely

Sorry, don't know why the thread has posted twice.

Not nicknames. It's their real names. Last name is commonplace.

I call urban myth too

wizzler Wed 09-Mar-16 19:24:06

Do they live near Enchanted Wood ?

Mind you after seeing twins Viktory and Success, nothing surprises me.

somebody is pulling your leg

Urban myth.

No way this is real.

x2boys Wed 09-Mar-16 19:25:19

grinWizzler and have a friend called moon face?

lulucappuccino Wed 09-Mar-16 19:25:20

No, it's their Birth Certificates names.

I know its a bit cruel posting, but I don't understand why the parents thought it a good idea.

They seem like pleasant, normal people.

CaptainCrunch Wed 09-Mar-16 19:25:33

Probably...if they were real.

Vixxfacee Wed 09-Mar-16 19:25:45

Probably puppies.

SpecialSnowflake Wed 09-Mar-16 19:26:10

Do they have an older brother called Tom?
I realise the 3rd one should be Harry but it still works

wizzler Wed 09-Mar-16 19:26:15

.. with a lot of saucepans?

Zariyah Wed 09-Mar-16 19:27:14

Is this some sort of in joke?!

Queenbean Wed 09-Mar-16 19:27:16

How do you know these people?

My middle name is Fangina which people often laugh at but its a very normal name where I am from

CaptainCrunch Wed 09-Mar-16 19:27:25

Off topic but I knew a guy called Willie Dick (first name and second name) and another guy who really was called Richard Head.

lulucappuccino Wed 09-Mar-16 19:27:28

They're real. I met them today.

I just don't understand why the parents would do it.

No other children, so no other names to report on.

RavioliOnToast Wed 09-Mar-16 19:27:28

I think they'll be avid tree climbers in a few years, right into the clouds...

x2boys Wed 09-Mar-16 19:27:30

And slide down the magic faraway tree on the slippery slip?
