Your challenge is to suggest names for the places, streets and shops that would make up the County of Mumsnet.

The city would be called Forum. Its suburbs: Boden (designer, very expensive), Hunbury Hills (flashy and a bit TOWIE), Cleek (gated community).

There would have to be a dark side. A few no-go areas.... the Gina Ford abandoned mine, the Breast vs Bottle flooded quarry and the I Voted Conservative lonely footpath....

<waves hand regally> But of course, Nickel although it will need a suitably MN name.

The post office could be called 'x post' grin

The zoo has only one small dog.
