One of the mums at school saying she is considering this for her newborn.

Can you imagine getting it to do kitchen chores? (in Yorks accent) "Fetch t'tray, Trey."

Any other children amusingly named after kitchen or dining accessories?

There was a Tre I think on that really funny soap " sunset beach".Always reminded me of ash tray, it was an american thing!
Loved that soap, although don't think it was meant to be funny!!

I think there might have been a Tre in Sex and the City, maybe?

There was a Trey in Sex and the City. He was Charlotte's husband - Not a good association!

Trey means the third. A lot of american families call their third born if its a boy Trey. So it says in my baby name book.

Oh, gawd, "Shagging and Shoes and the farkin' City", I might have known.

Enid Mon 02-Jun-08 09:31:12

UnquietDad Mon 02-Jun-08 09:31:30

Sounds like short for Tracey to me... As in "pass us a fag, will you Tra?"

Tre DeChannel from sunset beach. His mother faked a pregnancy with a cushion and kept it from her husband, an international jewel thief. In the meantime her mother was pregnant with the baby of the daughters husband. They called him Cole the Third after his father and Grandfather but he was always called Tre - the third.

What a programme!

<did you see Cole was Karen's ex husband in Dirty Sexy Money about a fortnight ago?>

Only Tre(y) I have heard of was the person from a previous Apprentice. Can't say I like the name personally though.

The weathergirl on our local tv is called Trai (pronounced Tray) Anfield.

<<swoons>> at Sunset Beach

The only Tre I have ever met is also one of the naughtiest children I have ever met. There may be no connection whatsoever of course but I don't like the name at all!
