Top names in Nottingham

Our youngest Great grandson is a Benjamin - great name that!

I still don't understand why it is necessary to have double barrelled surnames following marriage? One of our grandsons and our granddaughter in law did this, resulting in our great granddaughter having the longest name at school.

 

Why worry about our middle names? Just look at pedigree dogs and cats!

My wife told me she was talking to a lady in the village this morning who said that her grandson was going to be christened Isaac. No one seems to have realised that it doesn’t fit too well with the surname ‘Hunt’!

My ‘wider’ family has a new baby girl and she’s been named Eira Persephone.  Not sure whether she’ll be keen to use her middle name when she grows up.

It's better than Proserpine, which is its Roman equivalent.  In the past, when I've written about Manning, I've disguised its true identity by calling it The Proserpine Academy.  She was a goddess of spring.

Been reading about the origin of the name Nobby.........Apparently its from Norbet and several other loose connections...such as Clark....so i reckon its only in Nottingham that Greens are commonly called Nobby's........

My first grandson was christened Thomas and we were not allowed to call him Tom, we were reminded numerous times. When he started school it all changed his mother gave up as all his school friends and teachers called him Tom, we inwardly laughed as we then made every opportunity to call him Tom.

An old friend of mine, Dick, a divorcee remarried later in life. His new wife didn’t like Dick (the name that is!) so we had to address him as Richard in her presence. I’ve always been Phil. If I was ever addressed as Philip I knew I had done something wrong!

My good lady's proper name is Christine, though everybody knew/knows her as Tina. It wasn't until we were engaged before I found out. Transpires that as a toddler she couldn't say Christine, so she took off the Chris bit.

Like Phil, if anybody called her Christine, she knew she was in trouble.

I knew a girl called Ramsbottom but can’t remember anyone being rude about it - I never thought anything about the name at all. It was just a surname to me.....
