Yes or no? 👣

I'm thinking something like Tanto Atteso (Tess for short, obviously) would have been good.

Iwasjustabouttosaythat Mon 20-Nov-17 02:35:54

I would suggest a big no to both...

Battleax Mon 20-Nov-17 02:37:47

Go for it. What could go wrong?

HateSummer Mon 20-Nov-17 02:44:20

It’s lovely. Really nice names, big yes from me!

JoieDeFuckingVivre Mon 20-Nov-17 02:54:23

Not my cup of tea I'm afraid. Hoe do you pronounce the P name?

Dolwar Mon 20-Nov-17 03:22:40

I don't understand what is the first name or surname etc but it's a big no to all of them as first names

OtterInDisgrace Mon 20-Nov-17 03:25:53

I think maybe Profitella might be a good one. Tells it like it is.

DancingOnParsnips Mon 20-Nov-17 03:53:43

Otter? Don't understand, was it a Picolax advert?

DancingOnParsnips Mon 20-Nov-17 03:54:04


DancingOnParsnips Mon 20-Nov-17 03:55:04

That was meant to be confused

OtterInDisgrace Mon 20-Nov-17 03:57:24

Sorry, parsnips. I thought this was an ironic thread and you were taking the piss out of Zoella. I’m genuinely sorry if you really wanted to call your kid Poella

NaughtToThreeSadOnions Mon 20-Nov-17 05:20:56

otter it's ironic but it's not about Zoella it's a reference to this

We've been awaiting the arrival of young pooella.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Mon 20-Nov-17 06:58:30

Without meaning to be rude.
What the fresh hell is Poella.

ChequeredPasta Mon 20-Nov-17 07:05:54

Another one who clicked on thinking this was a Zoella pisstake.
Poella is awful. Awful.

NaughtToThreeSadOnions Mon 20-Nov-17 08:06:45

babyspider look at my post above yours it explains pooella

pasta what pooella is an awful name for literally a shit?!?!

Roussette Mon 20-Nov-17 08:19:15

Please NO to Poella I honestly scrolled down and thought it was a thread for Paella which is why I clicked on it as I like cooking paella. Don't saddle a DC with that awful name.

DancingOnParsnips Mon 20-Nov-17 09:33:50

Naught I'd give up if I were you! Let them enjoy the outrage grin

MikeUniformMike Mon 20-Nov-17 22:35:43

Isn't the spelling Paella?

FizzyGreenWater Mon 20-Nov-17 22:41:56

Knee jerk reaction is that it sounds too much like patella

PartyRat Mon 20-Nov-17 22:44:57

Sounds like polenta to me

NaughtToThreeSadOnions Tue 21-Nov-17 08:31:55

No the spelling is pooella

SnowBallsAreHere Tue 21-Nov-17 08:35:54

Isn’t that the name of the girl in the Latin school books?

LambMadras Tue 21-Nov-17 09:04:31

I clicked on this thinking it was a recipe for paella wink

ArcheryAnnie Tue 21-Nov-17 09:19:04

Useful names if you have quintuplets:

and Pam.

(I quite like Pam, though.)
