Stepney

Adelaide was on my girls list anyway grin .

Adelaide for a girl, Orinoco for a boy I reckon... :-)

Tobermory. DS2 gets called it all the time anyway.

Madame Cholet grin

Tobermoray grin

Tomsk would be ok.

Tobermory

Cholet

Since we have an initial theme, for the boys, it would have to be Orinoco.

Bulgaria - it's just ahead of the new wave Uncle / Aunty names. (See previous discussions on Barbara.)

PandasRock Tue 28-Jul-15 15:15:43

Tobermory and Adelaide are the obvious choices, although I am quite taken with Alderney.

ErrolTheDragon Tue 28-Jul-15 15:23:40

Orinoco (I know a boy called Orin).

CakeRattleandRoll Tue 28-Jul-15 15:24:56

Tobermory is actually quite smart.

Ooh I couldn't use any of those they wouldn't 'go' with DS1's name or our surname. Apparently that is important.

BestIsWest Tue 28-Jul-15 15:32:45

There's an Obidos? Ooh, I chose that.

BestIsWest Tue 28-Jul-15 15:34:02

Ah, Obidos is the one in the poncho.

Shansi has a cheeky little ring to it.

Love the Wombles.

Preminstreltension Tue 28-Jul-15 15:49:53

I don't remember any of those last ones <eyes Womble interlopers suspiciously>

But Tomsk is a good strong name - and Mme Cholet was obviously the feminine one with the flirty French accent so I'd go with those two.

00100001 Tue 28-Jul-15 15:54:45

sparkling but you HAVE to use one! grin

Esmesgirls Tue 28-Jul-15 15:56:56

Orinoco! Imagine hollering that across the park!
Wonders what Katie Hopkins stance on womble naming is...

squoosh Tue 28-Jul-15 15:58:47

You could also sing Orinoco Flow at little Orinoco.....not that anyone knows the lyrics to Orinoco Flow. Very mumbly is Enya.

Sparklingbrook Tue 28-Jul-15 15:59:20

Ok , ok the least worst is Cholet. <worries>

00100001 Tue 28-Jul-15 16:00:03

Orinoco!! Do come here and have your Crudities and Lentil Dip!!

Oh Orry.. you little tike, Mummy doesn't like it when you kick her shinny-shins!
