Blog From The Dog House, Paws For Thought!
Would you call your child Tequila, Tiger or Ferret? These bizarre names were given to British children as parents follow examples set by so called celebrities. Names for baby boys have included Awesome, Marvellous and Excellent whilst for girls names such Velvet, Purity, Promise, Loveday and Justice are popular. The records show that, while quirky baby names have commonly be given by celebrities in the past, families across England and Wales are following suit. Other names registered this year include Peace, Rogue, River, Serendipity, Diesel-Joe and Rider Zoom. But few families could match the parents in New Zealand who were ordered by a judge to change their daughter's name in 2008. They had named her Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii. She was nine years old when the court made its order. I am often called, Come Back , Get Here , Stop Barking, Sit Down and Leave It! Does that make my peeps a bit weird I ask? Our most favourites are, Justin Case, Barb Dwyer, Paige Turner and Stan Still. Spare a thought for Anna Prentice, Annette Curtain, Doug Hole, Hazel Nutt and Bill Board the next time you sign your name. What weird and wonderful names have you come across?
