Blue Alexander Henry Roman

Scarlett has a brother, Darren has a son and Janey has "piles the size of frigging grapefruits - when he came out, three of the little buggers popped out as well". Still, mother, father, sister, baby - and piles - are all doing just fine after a seventeen hour labour.

Bea has severe doubts about the history of the names for the new arrival - "let's hope that they don't provide another sibling.....whatever next? Yellow? Purple? I shudder to think darling".

They really named their son Blue? Like in - 'Here Blue! - Good boy!'

I'm shuddering too.

Oh dear. Is it too late to read this study to them?

Odd First Names Linked to Criminality

Frankly, it sounds from the description as though it could be an awful lot worse than colours!

Nunhead Mum of One said...

The did. Criminal is what Auntie Ivy calls it which fits in rather nicely with Aims' link.

Me, I'm keeping out of it!

They've reduced Scarlett's name to Scatty.....Blue will no doubt be called Bluey. From the pic I was texted he doesn't look like a Blue but he has got a Roman nose!

So, 'Scarlett' and 'Blue'; they just need 'Bianca' and they could make a Union Flag!

Oooh, sounds painful. But happy memories ahead.

Well it's certainly unusual. Hope it won't reflect his mood in later life! 17-hour labour! Gosh, good luck to them all.

It must be a South London thing. We live a few miles away and my teenage daughter has a friend named 'Ruud Blue Skipper'!

All about me

Nunhead, London, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
