What would your children like to have been called if they had the choice? These were the suggestion of my DS who is 4.

My then 5 year old announced that he wanted to change his name to... Taxi...!!

Probably Banana, but he's only 18mo. Love Book! grin

Toucan or palm tree were the two suggestions from my 3yo dd to name out baby ds!

I can top Book or House.

When I was expecting DS3, the older two boys came up with either 'Purple Jetski' or 'Armbandsie'.

DD would like to be Janice, because it's so exotic

My db2 was infuriated when db3 was born and my dm would not call him George of the Jungle hmm took him years to get over it grin

my 4yo db wanted to call our baby brother uncle duck. (massively outing myself here) his friend of the same age suggested Jesus.

My ds (4) has renamed my dd (2) fluffy carrot and she has renamed him quack quack.

DD (6) has stopped answering to her name and insists that she's called 'Rose'. Oh dear - I think we may have trouble in store with her grin

DS wants to be called Wolverine hmm

Ds wants us to call our soon to arrive dd parsnip!

ProtegeMoi Thu 16-May-13 21:59:27

DS would like to be called box and when asked about a name for new baby sister he suggested either baby or sister.

Considering he has a hamster called hamster and a fish called fish I shouldn't have expected much else.

DD1 wanted us to call DD2 "lovely"

happyhorse Thu 16-May-13 22:02:41

DS has given himself the middle names Penguin Acrobat.

One of our son spent a summer insisting he was called Amy !!!! He also dressed in his sisters clothes , he's now in his 20s and show no tendencies to cross dress or have a sex change! It was an odd summer to say the least smile

grin at "Penguin Acrobat".

I get the impression that's quite common Slave. Remember my brother going through a dresses stage too. I think it's just trying out the other gender's behaviour. Probably girls do it too but we don't notice as much.
