Come on guys...is it going to work? I want something wolf-like that is going to convey strength and a Don't Mess With Me attitude, while still seeming exclusive and feminine-sounding. The diminutive Loopy would be our affectionate family name.

What do you all think?

RorysRacingMa Sat 18-Jul-09 21:18:57

Sounds a bit Kath and Kim to me - Lupus for a boy, Enema for a girl

OracleInaCoracle Sat 18-Jul-09 21:19:06

hmmmm isnt lupus a blood disorder?

OracleInaCoracle Sat 18-Jul-09 21:20:05

nope, the wonder of google assures me that it is an auto-immune disease.

TheGashlycrumbTinies Sat 18-Jul-09 21:20:28

Sounds like an illness, don't like it, sorry.

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 21:20:58

Work with me guys!

I think you're taking the mick BitofFun. Please tell us you are.

crokky Sat 18-Jul-09 21:28:35

Lupus is an illness! You cannot use the name Lupusina.

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 21:30:22

Mick is the name of my eldest child - what are you saying? < narrows eyes >

Lupusina is a real name in South America, means 'little wolf' in Spanish, and the name of the disease comes from the latin for wolf.

Stop being so horrid to BoF. It's a lovely name.

Think it only works in your surname is Suit grin.

Tell you what though, Llama would be a fab middle name.

wrinklytum Sat 18-Jul-09 21:40:17

Lupus = autoimmune disease.

For the full monty you could name her

Systemic Lupus Erythrmatosis thus cutting out the need to ponder upon middle names.

OracleInaCoracle Sat 18-Jul-09 21:40:39

actually mick is FiLs name.... totally irrelevant...

didnt a poster once say that she met a little girl called Klamidya?

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 21:44:46

<sighs with relief>

At last someone can see where I'm coming from! I conceived on a particularly fun trek down the Amazon, during which we were forced into more intimacy on a hammock than I am normally used too, on account of needing to sleep clear of the insects. Coleoptera was one suggestion put forward by DP, but I don't want to name her after a bug.

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 21:45:44

to, sorry, got over-excited, don't tell the pedants...

Vamonos Sat 18-Jul-09 21:46:27

Oh I like it smile

Being called Loopy would set her apart from the common hordes, and I'd definitely think twice about messing with a Loopy.

OracleInaCoracle Sat 18-Jul-09 21:46:33

how about Mallerya?

WilfSell Sat 18-Jul-09 21:46:39

Mintyy - it goes lovely with those...

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 21:47:10

Llama is a great middle name! It fits the whole funky Latin vibe I want to go for, thanks!

RorysRacingMa Sat 18-Jul-09 21:56:20

Congratulations grin

WilfSell Sat 18-Jul-09 22:06:40

OK if you lot don't like Lupusina, how about Vulpina?

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 22:07:35

grin

VulpinaWilfsuit Sat 18-Jul-09 22:08:41

fishie Sat 18-Jul-09 22:08:48

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 22:09:56
