After lurking on the current baby name threads, I was reminded of this this morning. DH met a colleague last week who was talking about his baby daughter.

Colleague is called Richard
His wife is called Michelle

Their new baby - Richelle

It is made up isn't it?

Um... My dad convinced his little brother that his middle name was Lino not Leo. Apparently dear uncle's school books / reports etc all ended up with Lino as his middle name...

All this combining parent names has convinced me... I'm definitely calling the next child Lick now.

based on parent name combining - our next one would be called Melon or Hat!

I knew of a couple who did this and their daughter was called Jowayne

i think crazy baby names getting trend
not surprised at marby and richelle, as there are some jaw dropping ones on that american website

Marby was an American.

My American MiL has a man's name with an "a" added onto the end.

sparky- bork cracked me up.

When i was little, the girl next door was called Rochelle... so maybe that's where they got that hideous combination??

Richelle seems like a well known name in the US then.

Hulababy · 29/01/2008 19:34

I went to school with a Rochelle actually, which no one saw as being unusual.

Richenda is a proper name. Female version of Richard
