So what did your existing DC want to call the new arrival?

And did you listen?

To kick it off, DD1 has decided that new DC (due in a month) will be called:

Julia or Celestia if a girl

Robbie if a boy. No idea why. And, no, she doesn't agree that Robbie should be "Robert" on his BC to give him more options as a future High Court judge....

Any more??

(I should add that DD1 is three.....)

There is not going to be a new arrival in this household, but when my DD was about 3 she was determined that her future little sister should be called Princess Rose.

My ds is Robbie.

Your dd has her shit together wink

HipHopOpotomus Thu 15-Nov-12 09:46:40

She wanted to call DC2 Gabriella, or Lily or Rose - and the possibility of DC2 being a boy was NIL (in fact DC 2 was a DD).

We chose another name smile but we did use Rose as DD2's 2nd name

White Fang for boy, Pink Fang for girl from DS2 who's 5.

4 year old is desperate for a brother or sister called.... Mitzy confused

That's quite good for a three year old.

My three year old DD wants to call the baby ... Her name. Her full name. DD suggested her own name and was massively offended when I laughed.

Having two children with the same name? Robbieand Celestia sound rather good.

DD (almost 3) wants to call her imminent DS: Rabbity, Gray, Pinky or Yellowy.

Needless to say, we will not be listening to her.

Very impressed with your collective DCs' ability to come up with sensible suggestions at all!

My dd1 was 1.10 when she said a good baby name would be "bagpuss".

We didn't call ds that, but he did bring her a bagpuss of her very own!

I have 3 DS's and am expecting a DD in Jan, the boys have collectivlu decided that her name should be Princess Peach.

Ds1 wanted to call DS2 Alexander, and that is what he is.

Me and my sister wanted our mum to call our youngest sister Aily after a character in a Famous Five book. She agreed, to keep the peace, so we were most put out when the baby was in fact called Amy.

My 3 year old DD wanted to call the new addition Alexander as well Stella, so I was quite hopeful of her coming up with something appropriate when we found out we're having another girl (Alexandra?). Sadly she has settled on Fluffy Tinkerbell, and anyone who refers to the bump as just Fluffy is promptly corrected with her full title. I don't think we'll go with it.

Fluffy Pink.

StellaNova was that the book where the five went skiing in Wales? Loved that one. Think she was a wild mountain child or something. Oh those feral Welsh children!

Regardless of private-scan-almost-100%-certainty that it was a girl.

DD is not called Peter, or Digger which was DS's second choice.
I do know a Maisy Dora named by her older sister in honour of her favorite characters (Mouse and Explorer).

EsmeWeatherwax Thu 15-Nov-12 13:01:46

My five year old dd wanted to call the newbie Ben, because then she'd have Ben and Holly for her sister and brother. He's not. (Actually is Alexander!)

noisytoys Thu 15-Nov-12 13:03:15

DD (3 at the time) wanted baby DD to be called Rapunzel. Baby DD is called Willow

Adviceinscotland Thu 15-Nov-12 13:05:39

Bit off topic but I am reading the famous five to my dc at the moment. Loved the books when I was younger.

Now I'm pg I wonder if they will suggest dick or fanny confused

werewolvesdidit Thu 15-Nov-12 13:07:41

Variety Tenter (????)

FairiesWearPoppies Thu 15-Nov-12 13:09:02

If was a boy "George" so she could be like peppa pig, if a girl.... Buttercup moo.... [confised] (did point out was baby not a cow)

It was a boy and we went with her suggestion!

emsyj Thu 15-Nov-12 13:11:22

DD is 2.5 and wants the new baby to be called either Jess or Cress (we're reading a lot of Meg & Mog at the moment...) She refuses to come up with any boys' names as 'brothers are smelly' (blaming that one on Little Princess...)

VolumeOfACone Thu 15-Nov-12 13:23:12

DD wants Katie.
Oddly enough we wanted Katie for her, but our friends had a Katie when I was pregnant.
Maybe we will use it this time!

BartimaeusNeedsMoreSleep Thu 15-Nov-12 13:26:26

My friend's DS (2.8) wanted to call his baby brother "Strawberry cake".

Less than a year later when he saw my bump he decided the baby would be called "Chocolate cake"

HoneyDragon Thu 15-Nov-12 13:28:14

Ds was adamant that dd should be called Serena. We have no idea where he got the name from.
