Beetroot, Rawl? shock

I just came on here because I KNEW there would be a thread about the names! Rawle I suppose is an ok sort of name, very unusual but at least sounds like a name. But Beetroot...really? Someone would name their child after a vegetable?

Elledouble Tue 14-Jul-15 21:10:53

I exclaimed over that too - BEETROOT!

I came here too as I KNEW there'd be a thread!

Interesting choices! Made me think that if I had to choose a noun to nand my child I wonder what I'd choose??? I like "window sill" & "bulldozer" just because I like the way they make my mouth move!!

Also came here to find the thread grin fucking ridiculous, but comedy gold! wonders if you are a friend who saw my status

Haha I've just text my Mum the exact same thing!
I presumed it was 'Raul' though? Is that not how it's spelt?
After hearing Beetroot I've added Parsnip to the list for DC3 - Parsnip is more masculine than Beetroot yes?

Who looks at a baby girl and thinks vegetable? confused

What next, Turnip? Potato?

It was Rawle (like the plug?) according to the subtitles couldn't hear over shouty baby.

i am hoping they are nicknames that are being used to protect their identities

Username12345 Tue 14-Jul-15 23:02:14

She would be a good match for Kale from Child Genius grin

BlueBananas Wed 15-Jul-15 08:48:31

Ah like the plug, yes!
I presumed it was like Paul but with a R
...not that either of these things make them better of course confused

I knew there'd be a thread and you lot haven't let me down! Maybe they were nicknames for Beatrix and Paul <clutches straws>

LIZS Wed 15-Jul-15 09:33:32

Agree spider light. Could have been Raul I suppose. I doubt they will be using those names as international journalists or whatever. The house owner's story was rather sad

WaggleBee Wed 15-Jul-15 13:55:11

Was it a mis-spelling of Raoul?

BloodyDogHairs Thu 16-Jul-15 00:10:59

I've only just watched it tonight, surely no one names their daughter Beetroot!!

SymphonyofShadows Fri 24-Jul-15 13:05:35

I know an adult Raul, with that spelling. It's a real name in the caribbean, not sure about Rawle though.

Who looks at a baby girl and thinks vegetable?

Well... <clutches at straws> babies do come out pretty pink when they're born I guess?

Seriously though, where can I watch this programme? grin

BloodyDogHairs Fri 24-Jul-15 14:31:34

Ch4, the series is ended now but I'm sure it'll be on catch-up or repeated at some point.

Maybe Beetroot screams a lot and gets red in the face? As in the saying 'red as a beetroot'. Or blushes a lot. please say it is only a nickname

NorahBone Fri 24-Jul-15 23:34:24

I think Fuzzpig has it. The parents must have said "we haven't decided on a name, we'll just see what she looks like when she's born".

Selks Fri 24-Jul-15 23:46:26

I assumed Beetroot was a nickname for something like Beatrice....did it say Beetroot in the credits? Was it actually her name?

I exclaimed too! I can imagine mumsnetters up and down the country watching and going 'Beetroot! WTF!' grin

I saw about ten minutes of this, and as soon as I heard the children's names I wondered what Mumsnet would make of them. grin
