Hendrix Roger is quite cool!

PickledFanjoCat Wed 10-Oct-12 21:29:07

This is great! Working on a boys name right now. Cheers ears!

PickledFanjoCat Wed 10-Oct-12 21:30:42

Barnaby, cute.

OwedToAutumn Wed 10-Oct-12 21:32:28

And all boys, up until number 7.

I wonder what their family dynamics are like!

OwedToAutumn Wed 10-Oct-12 21:33:28

If you like Barnaby, what about Herbert?

PickledFanjoCat Wed 10-Oct-12 21:35:13

Im on Alexander at the moment..

GoldPlatedNineDoors Wed 10-Oct-12 21:36:24

Oooh I like Pia!

Whyriskit Wed 10-Oct-12 21:40:29

I remember seeing the announcement with the 7 children in my mum's paper. The mum and dad clearly had quite eclectic taste - especially as they both had quite traditional English names themselves!

tara0202 Wed 10-Oct-12 21:45:41

Frank and Bruno shock

TheDetective Wed 10-Oct-12 21:51:50

I was merrily reading along, until Frank, and Bruno!

Then I dissolved in to tears of laughter grin


PickledFanjoCat Wed 10-Oct-12 21:53:58

Frank Bruno! Classic. They can't have realised, surely!!

manicinsomniac Wed 10-Oct-12 22:00:55

Pia is in for some playground bullying!

Gorgeous selection in general though. Love Peregrine!

PickledFanjoCat Wed 10-Oct-12 22:38:04

Me too. I'm in Wales I just can't use the posher ones. Poor mite would get ribbed to hell.

bigbluebump Thu 11-Oct-12 10:48:26

I like Pia - quite popular in Germany. What is teasable about it?

And the parents of Cuthbert, Pergegrine and Orlando obviously didn't 'listen' to mumset - I actually think the names are cool!

PickledFanjoCat Thu 11-Oct-12 10:52:13

Prosper is an amazing middle name!

Xanado Thu 11-Oct-12 12:50:50

I love this- great place for ideas. Thanks for listing them. Are these in the Telegraph everyday? Need some inspiration for DS names.
