Bear? Are you sure?

insywinsyspider Fri 01-Aug-08 22:41:59

that would make a better first name smile

ahh xpost with everyone - we love the name but I know he needs a sensible alternative... clearly we're struggling

though you don't want to find yourself grunting every time you shout their full name in anger

MsDemeanor Fri 01-Aug-08 22:44:37

Really, it's a nickname, not a name. Surely?

insywinsyspider Fri 01-Aug-08 22:46:19

ok anyone know how to withdraw a thread?? it honestly was a serious question, I get it its not popular so will just work it out

i dont think he will thank you for calling him bear tbh

girlandboy Fri 01-Aug-08 22:48:39

Is it Bear Grylls that gave you the idea???

Yep, Edward Michael Grylls. Only changed it to Bear because that was his nickname at school.

sherby grin

Is it after Bear Grylls? YOu do know his real name is Edward don't you? And that Bear is just his nickname? Christen him Edward and call him Bear if you like. It's just not a name.

Bear Anthony
Bear Alexander

I can see why you needed to ask, I can't think of anything that seems to follow it. Could you have two middle names? Bear Anthony James or Bear Alexander Samuel sounds more fluid.

MsDemeanor Fri 01-Aug-08 22:59:08

It just sounds like you are saying bare (as in naked) Joshua or whatever. But that's because Bear isn't a name.

I know a boy called Bear. There is a Teddy in the same class. grin
