To call my child Spencer when my husband is called Mark?

What time will Mark and Spencer be home?

are Mark and Spencer coming with you?

Etc etc.

I think that would be ok.

As long as your last name isn't Mark as well, obviously 😉

Unless the names are said together then I wouldn't notice.
However if I heard you say 'mark and spencer will be home soon'
I would instantly think of M&S

I wouldn't personally

It would irritate me

Yes, I'm afraid it would. Spencer isn't a very nice name anyway!

You would need to refer to them as Spencer and Mark.

Think how ridiculous it would be in cards
Love from Tiny, Mark and Spencer

You could also write:

Spencer, Tiny and Mark.

It's a cool name and while I wouldn't use the word 'ridiculous' i think everyone will comment on the M&S link, forever. Have you anything else on the list?

Ummmm..... I wouldn't personally, no! Sorry!

No, you can't do that.

People might call them Sparks collectively, e.g are you & sparks coming over later for your tea?

JunebabyT Sun 18-Dec-16 12:59:55

I wouldn't and am not keen on spencer anyway. What else is in the running?

TinyTickler Sun 18-Dec-16 22:15:14

Yeah I think I'd ruled it out really already... poor baby sparks!
