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).

The hospital would have a Sporn department, where eager onlookers could watch and for a suitable fee could have a squeeze. A klaxon would sound to alert people that a real beauty had popped up.

Has anyone mentioned the patisserie yet? No name needed - just a sign biscuit.

I'm assuming that MNHQ would reside in a building a bit like the Disney castle?

I'll volunteer to run the "PFB Baby Group" in the village hall.
