Think I’ve found the perfect name for DD. Disclaimer: DD’s first name translates to ‘loveable’ in husband’s native language.

So DS name could be … ‘Mungo’. It’s Celtic for loveable too.

How bad is it?

Mungo… time for dinner!
Awesome job Mungo!
Let’s talk about Mungo’s school report.

Please someone tell me it’s a grower.

I quite like it
At least your DS won’t be yet another Theo/Alfie/Jack/Harry/Oliver! 🥱

I love it. It depends where you live, Mungo would be fine here - cathedral city in the South - but then we have plenty of Tristan’s and Ptolemy’s too.

Go for it. If names like Arther and Elsie can come back, why can't Mungo?

I quite like Mungo

But I'm confused about your explanation of Mabli. I assumed Mab rhymed with tab, until you said it was like Mable. So does the first syllable rhyme with Tab or Save?

Three more weeks to go. I’m at the ‘get the kid the fuck out of me now’ stage.

I’m warming back to Mungo. I shall let you all know! He’s currently 97th centile and the aonographer today said ‘woah check out the hair’ so I dunno but Mungo feels like a good fit for a baby gorilla.

@madamsapple I’ll be 46 weeks pregnant by st mungo’s day… but thats a great tip thank you. Tbh he’s probably going to arrive on Xmas day, in which case he’ll be called something like Noel. Or New Years Eve, I’ll call him Jools Holland.

A little update… nothing official because baby isn’t here yet (any day now!) but given some of the replies about Mungo, we just couldn’t do it.

Instead we’ve managed to find a Welsh name that DH and I can agree on…

Harbi, Harby or Harbie but registered Harbin. Harbin is Welsh but has a Germanic meaning apparantly too that means warrior. Unfortunately in Welsh it means ‘son of Owen’ and no, my husband is not Owen.

No negative replies please, my ears are covered and I’m going lalalalala.

Mungo Jerry (In the summertime)
Mary, Mungo and Midge.

It's an awful name. Don't do it.

My brother was at school with a Mungo. As others have said, from a Scottish family. Always seemed normal after an initial 'Oh? Unusual'
