I want to hear some funny suggestions from your DCs. This is the list that my two (aged 4 and 5 yo) would have written for their new brother or sister:

Die (my DS doesn't want another sister)

My DS came up with the lovely name Heartvalve for when he grows up and has a boy!!!

WaftyCrank Fri 21-Oct-11 16:25:46

From DS (4) and DD (2)

Sam is actually on our list if we ever have DC4.

My DD, nearly 3 wants to call the baby....

Princess hmm

When prompted for a 'proper name' she offers:

Noah (for a girl hmm as she is insistent that the baby will be a girl)

At least she has some ideas, I on the other hand can't find any names i like!

Lovely idea for a thread!

DS2 aged 4yrs is absolutley set on us calling DC4 if its a boy Hamza,after his best friend at school,which is a lovely name but as we are not eastern european its hard to explain why it not on our short list! hmm

And if its a girl his first choice would be Soldier confused!

If DS had had any say in it we would have Hugbox for a girl, or R27 if a boy.

DD (1.10) has suggested Biscuit or Boobie.

Hmmm... <strokes chin>

BedatHogwarts Fri 21-Oct-11 18:35:37

DS wants to name the baby after himself, regardless of whether it's a boy or girl!

Hulababy Fri 21-Oct-11 18:40:22

9y DD will only come up with sensible ideas I'm afraid.
For a girl Hermione or Persphonie.
For a boy Harry or Albus.

She does have a thing for Harry Potter thse days though!

TiarasTimeOutsAndTantrums Fri 21-Oct-11 18:47:36

DS would say Buzz lightyear coolest toy ever.
Bit of a mouthful though

DD when aged 6/7 was proposing Bluebell, Tinkerbell, Annabelle (after the baby doll) and Fifi for a potential sister.

By 8 or so she'd discovered the Sound of Music so she wanted Leisl, Gretl, Brigitta, Marta and something else I forgot... But not Maria, that was a grown up.

I have none yet but my little 6 year old neice suggested Caitlin...
Which is oddly enough the middle name anyway

And my cousins 5 year old said Sophie ... Which is dh's top name

DS wanted to call DD puppy - his comforter toy's name. Nothing but imaginative in this house!

Fishpants Sun 23-Oct-11 03:29:28

My 3-year-old niece has suggested Rapunzel for anything needing a name these days - regardless of gender.

DD said she wishes we'd called her Rainbow Rose.

AVoidkaTheKillerZombies Sun 23-Oct-11 15:06:02

DS2 would have been called Gordon Henry Percy if DS1 had had his was (was going through a Thomas stage at the time)

About 2 years ago he also decided he didnt like his own name and wanted us to call him Chad Sparrow hmm

GlaikitFizzogOnaNeepyLantern Sun 23-Oct-11 15:14:56

saffroncake Louisa is the fifth von trapp. grin

Tolalola Sun 23-Oct-11 15:27:23

DD would have been James if DS had had his way

betabaker Sun 23-Oct-11 15:30:24

DD1 (aged4 )had this name all lined up for DD2:
Daffodil Poochie-pie Jesus Zebedee Strawberry Spring baby (+ surname)

As a compromise we let her choose the RL middle name - and she came up with Florence!

pranma Sun 23-Oct-11 15:37:48

Monkey [for a girl]
no boys names because,'I'm a boy'
It was a girl but we didnt use his name....

msbuggywinkle Sun 23-Oct-11 15:39:55

DD1's suggestions for DD3 have been

Rose (we were going to use it, but a close friend used it)
Bluebell, after her chicken.

barbie1 Sun 23-Oct-11 15:43:58

Dd who is 20 month is telling everyone that her new baby will be called...bambi!

josieangel Sun 23-Oct-11 15:50:18

My parents asked my then 3 year old brother for his suggestions on what to call me.

Thankfully for me they chose not to go with his delightful suggestion of "Fish 'ed"

NevilleBarnes Sun 23-Oct-11 16:06:42

2 year old DD wanted to call DS1 'Tesco' grin Luckily she likes the name we chose.

DS who is now 3y wanted to call DS2 Harry. We didn't choose this name but DS will only refer to 5-month-old DS2 as Harry. Looks a bit dodgy in public sometimes when DS is talking to 'Harry' and DH and I are talking to BabyNevilleBarnes...
