The next best offering, from DD2, is Winston Churchill.

Boozy Rouge is good. So long as you are confident that you will ~never shorten to Boo, which is cutesy.

I think we'll always, always, stick at Boozy at the very least.

We got openly snurked at by vets' receptionist the other day because of our GP's name.

I just can't see myself shaking a bag of Go-Cat while chirping "Winston Churchill".

is it called testicle? grin

<tries to think what she would giggle at>

The name in question?

Was it Apple?

Deadworm Sat 07-Nov-09 22:05:19

Not Apple or Testicle.

Descent Into The Vernacular?

Alright: HandsomePete.

snigger Sat 07-Nov-09 22:08:24

God, you didn't call it Columbian Supper or something, did you?

Boozy Rouge is fine. My sister's cats are called after rock bands

snigger Sat 07-Nov-09 22:09:28


I like.

We have a Squiff and a Humphrey, so the snurkage is a suffering in common.

Boozy Rouge is v good. Is the kitten drunk and red?

cheesesarnie Sat 07-Nov-09 22:10:21

i love it!boozy rouge is fab!and so is handsome pete!

our vets laugh at our pets name-rabbits were called carrots and lettuce,gps called guinea,piggy and coco.but they have nothing on boozy rouge and handsome pete!

All our cats have been named after something alcoholic.

After exhausting Guiness, Gillespie, Bailey, Cosmo and Pimm, we're venturing into the lesser known cocktails.

My brother's guinea pig was called GP

chalky3 Sat 07-Nov-09 22:12:28

Anything goes for pets but as long as the madness doesn't extend to children's names you're fine!

snigger Sat 07-Nov-09 22:13:15

(Squiff and Humph are guinea pigs, btw)

I suppose, at a push, Winston Churchill would have passed as something alcoholic, but I'm glad there's at least a passing approval for Boozy Rouge, it works for me.

Want to see her?

Deadworm Sat 07-Nov-09 22:13:18

Winston Churchill was something alcoholic too though, I suppose.

chalky3 Sat 07-Nov-09 22:13:18

Not that I think it's a crazy name, I like it, it's 'unusual'

chalky3 Sat 07-Nov-09 22:13:52

Yes please

Deadworm Sat 07-Nov-09 22:14:13

We are v conventional with our children's names -- Rover and Squeaky.

snigger Sat 07-Nov-09 22:14:35

Neither boozy, nor red, but we think she'll carry the moniker with panache
