Hull sounds nice.

And Barking, very manly.

And Saffron-Walden would be a sweet youmg thing that went to ballet.

Ynysybwl would be a rock hard Prop Forward, and with a name like that he would need to be.

Pisa would be prone to getting pissed and staggering round a bit.

Why though? These are not names, they are places? What's wrong with a real name! I met an "America" once and thought it was a truely awful name (not that I said so of course). This was for a three year old little girl - it doesn't exactly trip off your tongue does it, and what about shortenings - none!

Blandmum · 07/02/2008 18:59


That would be nice

Wapping Jones

What a gal!

lulu25 · 07/02/2008 18:59

jo25 · 07/02/2008 19:00

lulu25 · 07/02/2008 19:00
