Did everyone else know that's what Austin Healey's twin toddler daughters are called?

Is it wrong to say I think they're dead sweet names? blush

Betsy's ok I guess but BBD is terrible - that's what people will spell it as.....poor kid

I wanted to call dd Elisabeth but known as Betsy! Didn't have the nerve in the end but wish I had!

It's top of the list if we have another dd!

Bibi-Dee is dreadful!

Bibi-Dee is hideous. Poor little thing.

PuppyMonkey Thu 30-Apr-09 10:13:58

Guess I'm the only one liking Bibi-Dee then!

Don't worry, though, I'm not going to have another baby so I won't be imposing it on any unsuspecting tot any time soon. grin

BunnyLebowski Thu 30-Apr-09 10:16:04

Actually this thread has made me think of that Changing Rooms bird Anna Ryder Richardson whose 2 wee girls are called....

Puppy monkeys are of course fab grin

I think that the Dee bit is short for Denise, which was his mum's name- think she passed away before they were born? read that somewhere as am sad....
But Bibi?? Maybe it is Barbara....
I do like Betsy.

MrsMattie Thu 30-Apr-09 16:31:51

Love Betsey. That's my DD's nn. Bib-Dee is a bit silly. Bibi is cute, but the Dee seems uunecessary...

Fimbo Thu 30-Apr-09 16:34:01

Betsy I could put up with. Bibi-Dee is just dreadful.

<<apologies to Austin's wife if she is a mn'r>>

Most people just call her bibi or bibs in real life, they are both so adorable and really suit their names.
