I was looking through the Telegraph birth announcements for name inspiration and to try and gauge popularity of names etc. I came across a recent announcement of the birth of a baby with a perfectly normal name with siblings named Maggot and Compost shock. Surely nobody could name their children Maggot and Compost?

I would imagine they're either pets, or kids nicknames.

Their last name is also nature related!

I didn't think that they could be pets, makes sense I suppose.

Family nicknames for Margot and Conor?

It's not unusual. My DC are called cowpat and flea.

I actually really like flea as a name. confusedgrin

I really want to know what the new baby's nickname is now.

It'll be Margot and Cosmo, and an in joke!

Posh people are allowed have these in jokes. Plebs wouldn't be indulged to the same degree.

Jago known as Compost and Margot known as Maggot...



And little Ivo will presumably be known as Pustule? Dry rot? Woodlouse?

Strange people. It's almost as though the aristocracy is inbred and eccentric smile

Why would they need to mention nick names in the birth announcement? confused

How do you pronounce Jago? I'm imagining it as Iago but maybe the j is hard?

I think it's Jay-go

HuskyMcClusky Fri 08-Dec-17 05:02:26

Jago, Margot and Ivo?

Okay, then. grin
