Hi Ladies,
We have a lovely 3 month old little boy and still haven't decide on names for each of us one will be mum/mummy but not sure what else to use.
Anyone any suggestions???

Me and my partner use mum and mama

Mummy and Mama here... Congratulations!

we use mummy and mama, but a word of caution on it: mama doesn't have the longevity of mum, and I think a lot of teenagers would be hesitant to use it - unless you live in an area where mam is typical. I know some people go for other syllable sounds so the baby can separate them from first speech; separating two m sounds is often a little hard for them. some people i know use baba or lala as a second one.

Where abouts in the country are you?

Would Mummy and Mammy work?

We are in manchester so mama isn't really isn't an option. I worry if we don't come up with anything soon we are just going to end up with mum and my partners first name which we don't want either!!!

My friends little boy says Mummy and Mimmy which has become Mum and Mim.

we use Mummy A (DP's first name) and Mummy B (my first name); we started off with various mummy/mama formulations, but this seemed to work. Often they just yell "mummeeeee" and don't require a specific slave maternal figure to materialise

how about using the french or spanish word for mum/mother ?
not sure what they are but nice thought as they both mean the same thing

Manchester is v fond of mam - is the only place I've ever heard it. strongest in Salford though. we're using Okaa and mummy now instead, to avoid the mam issue. (okaa is Japanese for mum. or, okaasan is but complicated language format)

We are Kari mum and Mummy Chris.

We're mummy and mama. Except DS1 now calls me mummy kathy and DP mama-lolo. No idea where he got this last one from...

what about Amma and Abba. I think that's mummy and daddy but can't remember which culture.

helpful for the mum(s) weve stayed with mom,mommy. guessing as our daughter gets older she will make her own names for us.

I think Abba is dad, and Emer is mum in Hebrew - but not certain!

Mummy and Mama - though one of the DCs insists on Muuuuum for both of us grin

cigarsofthepharaoh Sat 18-Apr-15 18:14:28

We went with Mama and Mummy too initially. They've gone through phases of using all sorts of names though. I'm currently "Mo" or "Momo", and DP is Papa - this causes so much confusion for other people grin. So they may well reject your choices and choose their own

We have Mum (name) and mum (name)

Like you would with grandparents and aunties, or any other relative you have more than one of. Simples.
