Revolution. Now.

thegethsemane used to post here

I quite like Tansy for a girl (a minor character in ASOIAF I think). And obviously Mao for a boy because we should commemorate all such revolutionary leaders.


#11

GET ON WITH IT AUBYN


#12

Euripides trousers?!


#13

We’re not 100% on a choice yet but our leading candidate might not be too out of place on here… (I was pushing for Tabitha but it was vetoed).

#15

Just looked it up, very different for the books and TV series.


#16

Think i’d just stick to the tried and tested method of…

  • Girl: Something extremely traditional followed by both grandmother’s names.

  • Boy: Something extremely traditional followed by both grandfather’s names.

(Generally speaking. Obviously some people might have reasons for not doing that, sure, but it beats naming your child after a colour or a place you visited).

Doesn’t matter really, does it? Surprised people put so much thought into it and make it such a huge thing. Of all the decisions people must have to make preparing for an arrival it’s always struck me as being one of the most trivial.

Yeah, some of the above are ridiculous, though. You’ve got to give a kid half a chance, surely.


#17

Sorry for the confusion, hygge my mate <3 (I’m not even on bookbook)


#18

Tabitha is good. Our friend’s daughter is called that.


#19

Jeremy Aubyn

If you have mixed twins you could go with Rara and Ra.
