That's a beautiful name. grin

ventilatormum Mon 25-Mar-13 20:03:30

think he'd be ok without the Ole - or are you spanish?

Chavvy and common.

Or Python?

KatamariDamacy Mon 25-Mar-13 20:07:18

Too silly. How about Kevin Philip Bonggg?

jinxdragon Mon 25-Mar-13 20:07:59

Barrel with one L? Lovely. With two it's just chavvy and horrid, your poor child will be CONSTANTLY spelling his name out for people.

Reginald Maudling is lovely, too.

We had a FTang FTang variant for DS toogrin
Baby brain hormones made me settle for a more regular combination at registration which is a shame as there are at least two others in the class which would never have been a problem if we'd stuck with the original!

Ok, but personally I prefer Zingelbert Bembledack Yingybert Dambleban Zangelbert Bingledack Wingelbert Humptyback Slut Bunwalla..

There are two kids in my DS1 class with the same name - I think it's faddy.

Yanbu. tis your baby and nobody else should have a say. I have to say though...not too keen on the Barrell bit....could you consider something more normal there? Maybe Tarquin Fin Tim Lim Bin FTang FTang Ole Biscuit BAKER instead?

WorriedMummy73 Mon 25-Mar-13 20:12:51

How about Strangely Brown?

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Mon 25-Mar-13 20:14:16

DD2 aged 5 is currently lying beside me and she suggests "Mr Knobbly" as a good name for a baby boy. Her opinion should count for something I think.

apostropheuse Mon 25-Mar-13 20:14:49

It's a bit pretentious. Drop the second Ftang perhaps?

TheCraicDealer Mon 25-Mar-13 20:15:34

Perhaps you might want to pronounce "biscuit" like the panda in this ad. Makes it a bit different, know what I mean?

LeggoAcubunnyture Mon 25-Mar-13 20:15:44

There are three of those in our local school. It's the new Jack!

DD wanted to call DS1 'Doogie' (after the dog on Smarteenies - anyone else remember that on CBeebies?). DS1 wanted to call DS2 Peppa Pig (if he was a girl) and Baby Jesus (if a boy).

My suggestion was Megatron for DS2 - I thought it was a strong, powerful name that speaks of leadership qualities. DP did not agree...

I've taught several of these and they're always naughty...

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Mon 25-Mar-13 20:16:55

Good idea Craic! She could spell Tarquin like "Tarkwin" too!

Viviennemary Mon 25-Mar-13 20:17:05

What about Tobb. (First letter and last three) That would save a lot of writing.

KoalaFace Mon 25-Mar-13 20:17:55

I read that name out to DH and he laughed his head off. I think it was the Ftang Ftang.

JesusInTheCabbageVan Mon 25-Mar-13 20:19:45

YABU for giving your DS a girl's name. He'll be a laughing stock, poor thing angry
