We were having the family discussion over lunch, I was quite keen on Ricky but got talked out of it talking it over made me think of this board. We have the final 2 but what do we call the robin in the garden each morning grin

Reuben is too good a name for a bird. I love the name Reuben. Choose something shit less appealing like Ricky.

I prefer Richie to Ricky.
Reuben I like as well.

Oh, for a bird? these names are too classic for a bird! go crazy for god's sake.

Our robin is called Rosy. Ricky is good for a Robin

Well, his real name is Erithacus rubecula, how about that wink

Not Ricky in any case.

How about Pat or Jess? IIRC there was some connection between robins and postman hmm in victorian times which is what made robins a christmas bird.
