I saw the name Box suggested on another thread and love it. However DH thinks we may need a longer name on the birth certificate. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Also, should we go for Boxx or just stick with the traditional spelling?

What about Cardboard as the full name and Box as a nickname?

That's what's I was thinking - joke surely?

I'd love it if your surname was Foxx

we went with the more traditional Cardboard, nn Box, we felt Tupperware was just too 60s and dated.

if it's a girl you could call her Pandora.

I wish I had the patience to keep this up grin. This is the first time I've delved into baby names since a mmc a couple of months ago and I saw this casually suggested on the "brother for Ebony" thread and it mae me cry with laughter.

I reckon the ONS should have a MN specific list...

Wine'Box. Apostrophes are quite popular in names now
