DC2 is going to be named 'Abracadabra' according to DD (2.6) grin

LOL! Think this could be quite an amusing thread!

My DD did name my DS grin

I found out the sex and when I got home, I excitedly said to her "do you want to know whether its a girl or a boy?"

she retorted "I already know. Its a boy and he's going to be called X"

DH and i sniggered and then thought "actually, I like X" and it stuck!

DD wants

Isabel for a girl or James for a boy - she won't get it.

DS1 wants to call this baby Blaze if its a boy!

StealthPolarBear Wed 27-Aug-08 13:01:38

Well so far DS's (16mo) favourite names seem to be "Jorj" and "Gob-ty"
Lol at BOB the baby!

Bella73 Wed 27-Aug-08 13:01:59

DD1's suggestion was Wabo-Abo (we're assuming about the hyphen and spelling as she was only 14 months when we asked her but she repeated it 3 times so it was a definite suggestion).

DC2 will be Superwhy or just Baby. but it's definitly a boy according to DS (or actually this morning it was a boy AND a girl) <scared>

mrbojangles Wed 27-Aug-08 13:06:49

You may well guess his favorite film!
Woody was his second choice

As our surname begins with a D it would have been quite .... cute?
DS1 actually did name DD though. He was 10 by then so not so strange

ROLF at Bob The Baby

<<can we wind him>>

Iklboo Wed 27-Aug-08 13:26:53

DH's brothers chose his name. He was going to be called Christopher but BILs persuaded MIL to call him what he's called now

(and it's a lovely name)

My dd1 has actually got quite good taste in baby names, despite being only four. She's chosen 'Emily' for a girl, which I like but we're not choosingsmile

MuffinMclay Wed 27-Aug-08 13:29:39

LOL it would be another Bob or Wendy here.

scorpio1 Wed 27-Aug-08 13:32:33

Jessica (ds, 6)

or Ruby (ds, 3)

Jbck Wed 27-Aug-08 13:33:58

Chloe or Sparkle (knew it was a girl) we went with neither smile

LynetteScavo Wed 27-Aug-08 13:34:13

DS1 wasnted DC2 to be Jamie - for a boy or a girl. Was never going to happen, as DS1 is James. Funnily enough, DS2 now pretends he's called Jamie. hmm

fridayschild Wed 27-Aug-08 13:36:22

Portland (after DS1's favourite bear)

this is quite cute, but not a patch on Bob the Baby

scanner Wed 27-Aug-08 13:37:45

Jesus !

EachPeachPearMum Wed 27-Aug-08 14:02:34

Portland is lovely! (though can't see us using it wink)
