I think this is very pretty. What do other MN think?

ZacharyQuack Sun 21-Aug-11 00:18:39

How do you pronounce it?

A1980 Sun 21-Aug-11 00:18:45

How are you pronouncing the second part? Because if it's pronounced the way it looks then her name will sound like anorak which is hideous IMO.

Even if it's rake anna-rake it will still sound like anorak.

carpwidow Sun 21-Aug-11 00:20:07

No. I was going to pronounce it "rack"

Iamkenny Sun 21-Aug-11 00:20:32

tbh when I first read it I though you had missed of an L.
Not really a fan of db names esp as first names. Plus Raque isn't very common at all and think some people would struggle with pronounciation -I don't think I've got it right now. Sorry

I prefer Jack-ette tho.

You cannot give a child a name that sounds exactly like anorak.Well you can but it's awful. I'm sorry to be rude but i'd kill you when I grew up if i was your daughter.

Imagine: "Anna-Raque don't forget your anorak!" shudders

I'm SO sorry A1980. I've been a little bit naughty and have been teasing you all. smile (but any more spoof names would be a good thread)

I thought you had to be joking. But you never know. Parents do come up with worse these days!

BeaWheesht Sun 21-Aug-11 00:29:42

Pacque- aMac much better imo

carpwidow Sun 21-Aug-11 00:30:08

I know they do A1980 and that's what I was being rather ironic! Harper Seven and all that (15 minutes later and she would have been called Kworta Ate)

madhattershouse Sun 21-Aug-11 00:30:15

Fan-Jo grin

Arf x10 at the people who thought you were serious.

I'm sorry - I don't mind being reported for GSOH and I owned up ever so quickly!

CointreauVersial Sun 21-Aug-11 00:37:15

Ah, don't take it personally MDS, I wasn't getting at you.

I figured this was just a gentle wind-up, a good laugh on a Saturday night. Baby names are hardly a hot trolling topic.

carpwidow Sun 21-Aug-11 00:42:43

That is all I intended - honestly - a good laugh on a Saturday night. Cheers wine
