Yes, I would have smiled too. But if she was Italian these names would e quite normal, no?

a bit ott but i suppose once you start with renaissance artists you can't really stop. hmm

[i should talk, my son's got a mouthful of a name.]

Do you think they were their actual real names? Maybe they're nicknames? [hopeful face]
Maybe they were playing ninja turtles and insisting that their mum called them that? grin

Honestly though I have so many daft nicknames for DD which I probably use in public al ot. I call her Peachy all the time. People may actually think I've called my DD Peachy blush

Sounds to me like they were probably playing Ninja Turtles. Many has been the time when DD2 has asked me to call her the name of the character she is playing that day.

I'd have laughed too.

But I'm hoping that they were just playing Ninja Turtles (are they back BTW?) either that or parent is obsessed with Turtles!

Although I do know someone with twin boys called Bill and en, which when I heard I tried my hardest not to laugh I have to admit.

They were playing! That wont be there names grin
I callmy ds 'Bob' all the time (he used to be a 'Wobbly Bob' when he was a baby) Do you think people think thats his name?

Twins at my sons nursery (many moons ago) were called Pearl and Polly Pepper - and that was for real - poor sods!

lisalisa Mon 15-Sep-08 10:31:12

There's nothing wrong with Raphael at all!! I know quite a few Raphaels and it is my ds middle name too.

snowleopard Mon 15-Sep-08 10:37:14

I would be hmm that she didn't use shortened versions to call to them. I would suspect ostentatious poncy-name-yelling.

DS has a poncy name so I can't talk either, but I wouldn't shout it across the tesco aisles, I'd use the short version.
