What’s in a Name?

Okay, let me just say I’m stoked that the kids are even excited about their soon-to-arrive latest family installment. I had expected the ‘where do babies come from’ questions. I had expected the rubbing of the tummy and the impatience with the whole affair. What I hadn’t expected was for them to get so damn het up about naming rights to the poor little tike.

Aside from Mister Four’s reasonably rational obsession with naming the kid ‘Thomas’ (which the hubbster doesn’t mind, to which I retort that there is no way in hell I’m naming our child after a freaking tank engine), here are the suggestions the kidlets are putting on offer. And no, I’m not joking.



Bruce Wayne

Optimus Prime

Optimus Prime Farting


And that’s only the suggestions if it’s a boy…

    lol, this cracked me up big time. My three year old’s attempts at possible baby names consisted of looking around the room and listing three things. I think my favourite was ‘CurtainlightTV’ followed closely by ‘Lightguitarmirror’.

    Hehe, ‘Lightguitarmirror’ has a certain ring to it, methinks.

    Oh yeah, that reminds me of Miss Six’s suggestions when Mister Four was about to enter the world, my favourite was this:

    ‘Scarfield Nut.’

    Don’t ask.

    Hey Jen

    Ta for the new link !

    My favourite suggestion by my eldest when I was pregnant with the second was ‘Slinky’.

    Love the new site; thanks for popping past mine and saying hi. It made me day Laddie. Said in an Eyerish accent of course…

    Actually, I think ‘Slinky’ has been mentioned here – not after the toy perse, but after the character in Toy Story. Oh, and they’ve just been introduced to “Star Wars”, so ‘Darth Vader’ is also on the shortlist. If the kid turns out to be an asthmatic, I may consider it.
