A little girl has joined DD's nursery.
Her name is CUPCAKE.

I suppose it is nicer than Fishfinger, or Potato.

(Oh. If the mum is a Mumsnetter: Hello mum of Cupcake!
... cough...
...Are you going to the summer fair on Saturday? smile)

How unique!

I don't know whether to do shock or grin!

Maybe her mum was a strawberry shortcake fan when she was a child smile

BoysBoysBoysAndMe Tue 10-Jul-12 15:39:31

I'm kinda like......hmm that's unique

Then the other part of me is saying....... That's got to be the pregnancy hormones

Pretty name for a little girl. But a woman?

And it probably isn't on the birth certificate.
But, it is still just silly.

I don't know. I'm just thinking "Surely that isnt on her birth certificate" but people are mad aren't they? So maybe it is!

Oh for goodness sake.

What next a lemon drizzle, or fairy cake?

How dare you sneer at my daughter's name on here angry

(just kidding, it's not me!)

squoosh Tue 10-Jul-12 15:47:52

Definitely her name and not a term of endearment?

MammaTonic Tue 10-Jul-12 15:51:43

I wouldnt like my name to be Cupcake. What sort of NN would you have? Cup? Cuppy? Cuppa? Cakey-Cake? Baby Cake? confused

kickingKcurlyC Tue 10-Jul-12 15:53:00

It's on all the stuff, register, pegs, message boxes...
Cupcake Jones (but not Jones).

I did feel it would be too gossipy / sneering to ask the staff. I don't think I could keep the incredulity out of my tone of voice. blush

Maybe I'll try to spot the parent, and start a conversation.

Cuppa is a nice nickname actually! Hmm. It is growing on me.

littlemissbroody26 Tue 10-Jul-12 15:57:52

I hope she doesnt become diabetic.

lynniep Tue 10-Jul-12 15:58:37

I likes it. I want to be called cupcake. CALL ME CUPCAKE!!

lurkingaround Tue 10-Jul-12 16:01:35

Oh my.

PropositionJoe Tue 10-Jul-12 16:02:13

It doesn't really pass the high court judge test, does it.

BoysBoysBoysAndMe Tue 10-Jul-12 16:02:34

We should start a new thread for sibling names

It has to be a nickname. Isn't it? Poor child. Surname Baker?

FootballFriendSays Tue 10-Jul-12 16:04:05

Vol-au-vent would have been more edgy

rainonmyparade Tue 10-Jul-12 16:04:18

Maybe its just a nickname that all her family and friends call her. Her proper name could be Charlotte Elizabeth.

<clutches at straws - heard it all now>

squoosh Tue 10-Jul-12 16:07:39

Tch, how un-zetigeisty.

Cupcakes are so 2010. The child should be called Le Macaron or Whoopie Pie at the very least. Oh wait, does that make me sound very 2011?

<panics at not knowing 2012's trendy cake of choice>

If I have any more, i'm going to go for chip, rich fruit, pecan pie or krispy kreme
