...for naming his daughter Tinkerbell?

I know I am actually BU as it's none of my business etc. Also shooting people is generally not the way to approach such matters.

I feel so sorry for the poor kid. She's going to go through torture at school. Not to mention thee rest of her life. Imagine a high court judge called Tinkerbell.

I'll get the gun...

Starlighter Tue 15-Aug-17 12:48:54

I'll provide the alibi...

TieGrr Tue 15-Aug-17 12:49:14

I'm sure I've a few bullets around here somewhere...

YANBU, you can't shoot him. Too much forensic evidence. Have you considered some kind of swift-acting poison?

GrumpyInsomniac Tue 15-Aug-17 12:50:28

I'm just impressed that the baby is showing such an early vocation for the Law.

...but I've got a shovel to help dispose of the body...

I've got a spot down the bottom of my garden...where he can spend eternity with all the other fairies.

I can help destroy evidence?

Do you think he's winding you up or has the poor child actually been named.

Do you need some rope to tie him up before you shoot him?

Cupcakey Tue 15-Aug-17 12:51:42

I'm with you, the poor baby.

BenLui Tue 15-Aug-17 12:52:30

Goodness, that's erm a bold choice. shock

At least she can change it to "Belle" as she gets older.

I came here to say you are overly dramatic, but now I've read your op I feel like I should probably help you out with the shooting

Revenant Tue 15-Aug-17 12:52:46

Have you told him she will be known as Stinkerbell at school?

Sparklingbrook Tue 15-Aug-17 12:52:48

I bet when he goes to register the birth it will be shock faces all round.

OliviaStabler Tue 15-Aug-17 12:52:59

You can't have done it, you were with me all evening grin

MargaretTwatyer Tue 15-Aug-17 12:53:47

I imagine she will be called Belle or Bella pretty damn soon/

MargaretTwatyer Tue 15-Aug-17 12:54:16

I have a cat called Tinkerbell. My kids call him Stinky Tinky

PandorasXbox Tue 15-Aug-17 12:54:20

No way.

A chihuahua maybe but not a human.


LoyaltyAndLobster Tue 15-Aug-17 12:55:03

That's right OP it's none of your business, she is not your daughter.

liverbird10 Tue 15-Aug-17 12:55:13

pigsDOfly Sadly for "Tinky", her dad is not winding me up. sad

WIBU to hit him with a brick, if shooting is off the cards?

PinkHeart5911 Tue 15-Aug-17 12:56:25

I've a patch at the bottom of my garden that's perfect for hiding any evidence

That poor child, I think some parents just don't think long term when naming. Why didn't they give the child a normal name and just call it tinkerbell as some weird nickname?

Although my younger brother was at school with someone named Dipsy, he now has a very high flying job but calls himself a normal/sane name think Dave. Wedding was good "Do you take dipsy to be your dh"

RamsayBoltonsConscience Tue 15-Aug-17 12:56:32

I can already imagine the hysterical laughter and rolled eyes in the staff room when she starts school! I've watched Breaking Bad, plastic bath and acid?

elephantoverthehill Tue 15-Aug-17 12:56:34

Will the child have a middle she can revert to something like Jane or Anne?

JsOtherHalf Tue 15-Aug-17 12:56:48

When we registered DS, the registrar was relieved we named him a name that wasn't uncommon, with the usual spelling.
Earlier they'd had to register a child named after film character... of a different gender.

She can be besties with star cloud!
