My middle name is a flower, according to my Mum.  I, on the other hand say it is a weed.

"Dandelion"?  Would be lovely if true (in a nice way).

*cough* Daisy *cough*

It was meant to be 'Devi' or something according to my Mum. But, when my Dad drunkenly toddled off with excitement to get my birth registered, he misheard my Mum and had me turned into a weed.

Awwwwwwww bless that's a lovely name!  I don't know why you're so ashamed.

Ach, it could be worse. But, whenever I have had the misfortune of having to tell anyone about it I get greeted with howls of laughter. 'Oooh, Daisy the cow!', 'Daisy, Daisy, gimme your tits to chew!'

Urgh.

If I ever have a daughter I will be calling her Daisy.

OK, you are allowed that one.  Just don't do the Jamie Oliver thing and call her 'Daisy-Boo'. What the fuck is that all about?

It's mostly about Jamie Oliver being a twat, I should think LB.
There's nothing wrong with Daisy, it makes me think of posh totty.

Here's a loaded question, but who's going to beat my 'Denby'???

I used to work with a bloke called Denbeigh, and that was his forename, never mind being hidden in the middle.

My middle name is Edward. I'm not sure what I could ever use that name for really. Perhaps if I become an author I could start calling myself R. Edward May. It doesn't really come close to the greatness of L. Ron Hubbard as a name though, does it?

Quote from: "Banana Woofwoof"
One of my favourite girl names is Eloise, not just because of Barry Ryan.  Elise, Eloise and Aoife.  If I have children I'm going to torture them.


There was an Aoife at my school. I was in the same class as her brother Fionnan. The mother explained that she'd heard a radio play once about two sisters called Fionnan and Aoife, and liked the names. Which seems a little cruel on poor Fionnan.

My Great Uncle Padraig's very much a poor-drick.

As for my own name, Nick's about as nondesript as names get. But then most male names are. When I'm writing, all my male characters are called Steve and Andy and Tony, and they're boring as fuck. Whereas the girls are all Jessicas and Carinas and Scarletts, which is much more exciting.

Middle name John, which is the same as roughly everyone I know. Surname Lancaster, which must be about as English as you can get. As am I, despite the presence of a Great Uncle Padraig (My Mum's parents are Irish, but she's English born with no discernable Irish characteristics beyond the name Margaret Mary).

I'm half tempted to be N. John Lancaster, 'cos I want to get the middle name or initial in there somewhere and don't want to use Nicholas. Nick J. Lancaster sounds wrong.

The Job Centre used to know me as Nick John Lancaster, which doesn't work in the slightest. Apt, I suppose.

I knew both a Candice Plunkett and a Wanda Spider at school. You can have those names if you want.

I went to school with girl called Daisy Acres.  I believe her parents were hippies, and I think she must have hated them for the name or something, because she did a good job of rebelling against their values by winning a big sword for being the best Combined Cadet Force-er in the country.
