Awful, but you do you.

MarthasGinYard Mon 02-Dec-19 07:29:48

'Sib set' ugh
Names ....oh dear

daisypond Mon 02-Dec-19 07:39:48

What are you asking? You have four DC and are having a fifth? Which is the name? The names are fine, but don’t go together. Jacinta, Elizabeth and Xavier are good. Patrick is great. Not keen on Blaine.

MrsNoMopp Mon 02-Dec-19 08:19:01

Are you writing a novel or are these real people?

IVflytrap Mon 02-Dec-19 10:01:08

What about them? confused

icemelting Mon 02-Dec-19 10:08:46

For children or a novel?
Eli*z*abeth fine
Jacinta ok
Xavier depends upon pronunciation
Blaise saints name but awful
Paddy awful as in Paddy Power, Paddy pants down (Patrick is ok)

Liverbird77 Mon 02-Dec-19 12:49:06

Love Blaise

BonBon411 Mon 02-Dec-19 14:54:28

Jacinta- no
Blaise- horrible
Xavier- ok

These names do not go together at all.

"Sib set" 😂
Collect one, collect em all!

Erm, none of those names go together IMO. None of them feel of the same "Ilk"

TatianaLarina Mon 02-Dec-19 17:53:16

All over the place.

One Irish diminutive, one Spanish, two French, (well Xavier could be either French or Spanish), one Swiss.

HotSince82 Mon 02-Dec-19 18:14:36

Oh no these are siblings who I know.
I've always thought that the parents had done quite well in a time when you have families emulating the Kardashians/attempting to stick to a 'theme.'

Paddy is Patrick on the birth cert afaik.

TatianaLarina Mon 02-Dec-19 18:28:39

The Kardashians stick to a letter not a theme.

HotSince82 Mon 02-Dec-19 18:35:23

Thats why the slash was used in the sentence.
For clarity, I'm not a great fan of either.

Clangus00 Mon 02-Dec-19 18:44:29

Who cares?
Are they Irish Catholic?

HotSince82 Mon 02-Dec-19 18:57:00

Well I care, obviously grin
Catholic but not Irish.

TatianaLarina Mon 02-Dec-19 18:57:37

I like themes as long as they’re not too matchy matchy.

HotSince82 Mon 02-Dec-19 19:00:04

Actually the fact that they all have saints' names probably counts as a theme...

TatianaLarina Mon 02-Dec-19 19:09:02

I suppose it does but it’s rather a random selection.

Clangus00 Mon 02-Dec-19 19:31:21

Today 18:57 HotSince82

Well I care, obviously grin
Catholic but not Irish.

Why do you care? All you’re doing is criticising.

HotSince82 Mon 02-Dec-19 20:26:54

No I'm not.
I haven't criticised them at all, quite the opposite.

VanyaHargreeves Mon 02-Dec-19 20:29:12

Do you not think listing the names of someone else's children and inviting public judgement on them is a bit sinister/mean spirited/ odd OP?

HotSince82 Mon 02-Dec-19 22:28:36

No, not really. Though I take it from your comment that you do.

VanyaHargreeves Mon 02-Dec-19 22:38:32

It would be entirely different if these were your own DCs names

How many families are there with 5 DC of these names?

One, I'd imagine

Imagine being the DM of these DC sitting at a computer thinking "which of my "friends"has done this?"

"why do they care so much?"

I'd be freaked out so bad

HotSince82 Mon 02-Dec-19 22:49:17

Fair enough, people differ I suppose.

If it were me I'd be chuffed; although as I think they have named their children well I wasn't expecting many negative responses.

However I suppose its prudent to add; Hi, if you're reading this, its your friend with the orange coat here. I immortalised your tribe on MN, mine's a mocha when you next see me wink
