Guessing game V!

Merry twixmas! Xmas Grin

We have reached thread 5(!) of the baby names Guessing Game.

This was the (brilliant) brain child of @scotstar back in March 2018. Smile

All are welcome, rules of this game are pretty straightforward - someone describes a name. Whoever solves the clues is then in charge of describing the next name. Simple! Make the clues as fiendish or straightforward as you like. Grin

Clues so far for this next name have been:

  • Infant photographer/Shirley + paste + taste + vehicle.

  • The infant photographer/Shirley is also a princess and a literary sister.

  • She's a little pickle.


    The first syllable has been correct guessed - it's Anne. (The infant photographer is Anne Geddes, Shirley is Anne Shirley of Green Gables, the princess is Princess Anne, and Anne Bronte is the literary sister.)

    But what is the full name?! Grin

Yes indeed, Angelica! Grin

Anne + gel (paste) + lick (taste) + car (vehicle).

Angelica Pickles was a character in Rugrats (and she was quite a little pickle/madam as I recall!).

And yes, meaning "angel". Xmas Grin

Over to you, @LadyGAgain!

This name is a name in its own right. And also a shortened version of the female December baby.
Part of a close family who drove the nation crazy in the mid-90’s.

Yes @htbzllhcR it's Tina!

Tina is a name in it's own right but a female version of Christ/ina.

Tina was a member of the Dingles in Emmerdale.

Tina Arena was in chains and Tina Turner was rolling on the river in Proud Mary.

Over to you!

I thought it might be Christina/Tina but then this clue threw me off:

Part of a close family who drove the nation crazy in the mid-90’s.

I’ve never watched Emmerdale so I initially thought:
This name is a name in its own right = Jo/Joe
And also a shortened version of the female December baby. = Josephine as the feminine version of Joseph
Part of a close family who drove the nation crazy in the mid-90’s. = Joey from Friends (they’re sort of like a family?)

And then I had no idea about the last clue.

htbzllhcR · 29/12/2020 12:03

The first syllable roughly rhymes with the name of a French designer label.

It is a combination of two names, one of which is a British Royal name.

I can give more away after a couple of guesses 😊
