God I have never seen so many shite name threads in my life.

What happened to calling children names which are suitable from birth through to adulthood?

I mean come on, get a grip.

Poor children

Golden rule:

Name your children- and think how it would sound if they where prime minister grin

Any names in particular?

PuppyMonkey Thu 14-Aug-08 10:16:13

Fox would be a good name for a Prime Minister imho.

lilymolly Thu 14-Aug-08 10:17:38

Cant remember the others

I mean yes have an unusual name for your children but remember they have to live with it forever

Fox seriously hmm

It suited Mulder.

well think of a Prime Minister called 'Molly' or even a 40 year old

my own opinion names like Molly, Wendy, Jenny are for little girls

nappyaddict Thu 14-Aug-08 10:20:32

fox - fine
buttercup - no!

nappyaddict Thu 14-Aug-08 10:21:00

i know loads of grown up molly's, wendy's, jenny's

lilymolly Thu 14-Aug-08 10:21:37

My mums a wendy grin

Jenny agutter a real classy lady

Molly is my dog!

yes I know and they're not weird names but I still think they suit children more than adults

There's a character in "Vile bodies" (Evelyn Waugh) called Fanny Throbbing. I don't think she's a PM.

buttercup? I can hear it now in years to come, "that buttercup, she's a right old cow.". wink grin

Not sure if the buttercup thread was ever proven tbh- could have been wrong

Wasnt the princess in princess bride film called buttercup?

Love that film blush

Fanny throbbing grin

is there a name like ilyus cos i'm getting a feeling that i've heard it somewhere.

lilymolly Thu 14-Aug-08 10:45:28

It sounds familiar to me too- only got it from thread title- will go in a take a read

lilymolly Thu 14-Aug-08 10:47:19

Ilyus is a muslim/greek name

I will take that one back - thats allowed as its a cultural name wink

3andnomore Thu 14-Aug-08 11:10:18

lol Ilyus sounds far to much like Ileus (which is the medical term for a bloackage of the intestines)

admittedly, originally we had the name Melina picked, should ds 2 have been a girl....until some of the nurses I worked with mentioned that it reminded them of Melaena (blood in stool)...HMMMM...PUT ME RIGHT OFF, lol

nappyaddict Thu 14-Aug-08 11:11:31

oh perhaps that's why ilyus sounded familiar.

3andnomore Thu 14-Aug-08 11:13:56

but lilly...I may well could imagine the Pm being called Wilfred, I would still think it's an ugly name(sorry to all those that like the name).....
just an example

Ooh - was watching 'Who do you think you are' with Patsy Kensit last night, and one of her ancestors' daughters was called 'Cestria' - I thought that was quite a pretty name, but not sure you'd get away with it these days.

nappyaddict Thu 14-Aug-08 11:18:30

cestria???? reminds me of kestrel a bit.

JackieNo Thu 14-Aug-08 11:21:31

After a very quick google, Cestria may have something to do with the city of Chesterhmm. Still a pretty sounding name, imo.

Ilyus sounds like Aloysius (Brideshead Revisited, another Evelyn Waugh).
