any thoughts on it?

The person who is thinking about it when her son is born has a 16yr old daughter named Brooklyn.

I personally think it's too much (she doesn't mind me posting on here) any other suggestions you may have?

My friend is quite Unconventional.

Thanks all.

For the person who said she is copying the Beckham - that's not strictly true. Her daughter is 16 yrs, the Beckham boy is about 13 years old.

She is stuck on London or Ed. As of now.

Ed ? As is in Ed for Edinburgh?

Some great suggestions on here already. I'm loving Grimsby and Leamington.

How about Hull?

Ed as in Edmonton, I presume.

Could be cool if you are otherwise chav tastic. There was a musician in the 80s called Derry can't remember the band.

Kew. Now that's actually quite nice!

Mimms, after South Mimms service station?

He will shorten it to "Don" like a 65 year old bloke

Her daughter will abbreviate hers to Lyn

Both will crave lives of quiet conventionality

(I know a baby boy called Derry. People say "Terry??? like Terry Wogan?")

Kew is cool.... Liking that. Unless their surname is Garden.

delilah88 Thu 10-Jan-13 17:37:12

yes -- and if so she should push the boat out and go for Doncaster!

Your friend is not unconventional. She is stoopid.

My sisters cat called putney

Scunthorpe? Cunt for short......blush

Once saw a sign to a little hamlet called WindyHorse Pump.

With others, hardly unconventional. Boringly conventional sleb like.

Pancakeflipper Thu 10-Jan-13 17:40:15

And my BIL loves the name of the village called Twathats.

LaCiccolina Thu 10-Jan-13 17:40:54

Ed??? Better than first but not hinting at this magic personality she's got?

yousankmybattleship Thu 10-Jan-13 17:44:15

Twathat? Genius. Your friend <has> to use that!

Agree it ought to be a part of London, how's about hoxton, dalston or Brixton?

ComeAlongPond Thu 10-Jan-13 17:45:46

How about this?

Pancakeflipper Thu 10-Jan-13 17:46:53

Or the village of Wetwang.
Remember Richard Whitely of Countdown fame? He was mayor there.

Derry was from emf and it was short for Derek, which isn't quite such a rock and roll name.

He may have been the one who could fit an entire lemon inside his foreskin.

iseenodust Thu 10-Jan-13 17:50:53

Wetwang still has a famous mayor - it's Paul the BBC weatherman. <head full of useless guff>

I think Wetwang would be nn wellywang.

Of London I prefer Bloomsbury.
