not allow anything with mum, mummy, mama, dad, dadda, gramps etc because they annoy the crap out of me for being too twee.

also anything with random numbers at the end because they are pointless.

I used to be someone ending in mama and I was told it was twee and hunnish on my very first post!

Certainly can't call you twee now grin

Mamazon Tue 29-Sep-09 18:33:26

is my name twee?

certainly hadn't occured to me that i would ever be considered twee

GhostWriter Tue 29-Sep-09 18:35:27

Mamazon fine, ditto Lulumama, institutions that they both are.

I think there are some we can approve as exceptions to an otherwise strictly enforced rule.

Oh, guess I'm in trouble then.

What if I make up what 2072 stands for, rather being a random string that was assigned by another board because there was already another Tee? Um...2072 is actually the year I am predicted to die. I'll be 103.

fraid not Tee. It. Has. To. Go.

Tee2072 Tue 29-Sep-09 18:45:18

Darn. I'll get right on that. After my tea. Really, I promise I will.

Maybe I should make it TeeC*nt?

Is that better? grin

Can I beg point out that my number is from pointless? I wanted something far from twee, so named myself after a planet of human-annihilating aliens. Geeky but hopefully not twee. Also, I thought that without it I might be shortened to OP. Which might be confusing.

I can't believe I felt the need to post to defend my name-choice blush

Tillyscoutsmum Tue 29-Sep-09 18:47:57

I agree (fecking unimaginative morons wink)

Maybe we could go the way of the other site and all be our first name and initial and our place in the scheme of things i.e. BobJ1 BobJ2

No. I disagree. Other than banning names that have one tiny change in order not to be the same as an existing name, eg someone calling themselves Eccentrica2 (or should that be Eccentrica3 grin?), and encouraging them not to be offensive, I don't think MN should censor names.

People may be proud to be parents, or perhaps want to make it clear that they are of a particular generation. Why should we be judgemental about that?

Ivykaty44 Tue 29-Sep-09 18:56:44

the 44 is not random wink

starwhores Tue 29-Sep-09 18:59:58

But I've just name changed.... I was fruitshootsandleaves but realised I was steeping on the more thought provoking a funny fruitshootsandheaves. What next for me? Middleoftheroad.....doillyalley....iloveteapots

Disenchanted3 Tue 29-Sep-09 19:00:14
