Fimbo Tue 26-Aug-08 12:23:53

Goodness - do you know someone called Humperdink?

periselene Tue 26-Aug-08 12:29:58

Not this side of film and fiction. Purely a theoretical exercise. No reference to any person either living or deceased is intended by this thread.

Most of those names are ok.
I was hoping for



Shoob ii-Doobii

periselene Tue 26-Aug-08 12:39:01

Yes, very inane, so nothing to get upset about.

BroccoliSpears Tue 26-Aug-08 12:39:05

Scorpio have you always had a 1?

scorpio1 Tue 26-Aug-08 12:39:30


periselene Tue 26-Aug-08 12:39:48

How's the popcorn, Fimbo?

BroccoliSpears Tue 26-Aug-08 12:42:27

I've never noticed it before.

<scrambles around for something more interesting to say grin>

scorpio1 Tue 26-Aug-08 12:43:33

Scorpio was taken, so in haste i just put one on the end. Cannot be arsed to name change.

scottishmummy Tue 26-Aug-08 12:43:44

so reveal your precious offspring names,give us a laugh.since it is such good fun.

likely someone will come along Ellie etc mum and get upset, so why do it?

MaryAnnSingleton Tue 26-Aug-08 12:46:25

wtf is wrong with Millie,Polly etc - you may not like them but they are in no way are being a tad extreme I think

periselene Tue 26-Aug-08 12:48:30

Gerald, Clarence and Hector.

Laugh away, I don't mind.

Was it fun?

bethoo Tue 26-Aug-08 12:48:38

i am hormonal due to preg and i was devastated when there was a thread with my sons name on it and 90% of the peopel on it said how terrible/horrid/awful it was!
makes me think how many of my firends have lied saying it is a nice name when apparantly it is one of the most horrendous names in the world going by the thread i read! sad

periselene Tue 26-Aug-08 12:52:22

MAS, it's a matter of opinion isn't it? My opinion is that the names are spoiled by extreme trendiness.

It's a bit extreme to get personal over a stranger's opinion, I would have thought shock

Love Colin. Very fond of Lily and Molly. Would definitely have used any of them.

Isn't it all down to experiences? I still wince when I hear Scott - how sad it that?

So, names that I am prejudiced against are:

Thomas (saw a brilliant assembly on why not to use this name)
Lee (family dog's name)
Fred (as above)
Graham (no reason whatsoever)

Judy (Punch and Judy - mind you, I love Judith)
Olive (my best friend hated her name and Olivia is so much prettier - oddly enough, I like Oliver, too)
Dolores (no one I know actually likes it when it is their name - Lola and Loli are nicer)
Raina (too like rana - frog)
Connie (bit like Graham - I just don't like it)

There again, I like Mercedes and yes, it is a make of car but it still sounds good to me - grin.

What type of popcorn have you got, Fimbo? I don't like the microwave stuff wink - msut be either scrummy M&S or from the pan.
