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.

There's a CBBC presenter called London? She's very irritating. aren't they all?

Narked Thu 10-Jan-13 18:19:44

Does she need to give her latest child an interesting name because her DD can legally change hers soon?

Pancake that's right.

Cleckheaton maybe grin

Iseenodust? Little Paul? Aww bless him.

I quite like the name London.

I wouldn't want to live there, or give the name to my child if I did live there, but its not awful is it.

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.

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.

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

Or the village of Wetwang.
Remember Richard Whitely of Countdown fame? He was mayor there.
<has now emptied head of useless tosh>

How about this?

Gintonic Thu 10-Jan-13 17:44:50

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

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

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

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

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

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

LaCiccolina Thu 10-Jan-13 17:39:37

With others, hardly unconventional. Boringly conventional sleb like.

Pancakeflipper Thu 10-Jan-13 17:38:48

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

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

noddyholder Thu 10-Jan-13 17:38:27

My sisters cat called putney

expatinscotland Thu 10-Jan-13 17:37:38

Your friend is not unconventional. She is stoopid.

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

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

Pancakeflipper Thu 10-Jan-13 17:35:59

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

MerylStrop Thu 10-Jan-13 17:35:50

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?")

delilah88 Thu 10-Jan-13 17:34:44

Kew. Now that's actually quite nice!

Mimms, after South Mimms service station?
