The Naming of 'Bunny'.



One of the fun aspects of having children (or even grandchildren), is the choosing of names; this is also fraught with danger.

Grandparents all want their way; suggesting the names of their Mother/Father, Brother/Sister, or even their own names. Aunts and Uncles also want a say, and will possibly suggest something regal-sounding as befits a future Prime Minister or Brain Surgeon; which of course they are anticipating.

In our own recent case the young Cousins also insisted on being heard, and were disappointed when neither of their recommendations 'Chump' or 'Jesus' were chosen.

But the only ones who are really important in all this are the child's parents; and they usually surprise us with their common sense.

So in the future, on his driving licence, passport, and supermarket loyalty card, it will actually say.....

Aaron James Auriel 'Magnon'.

But to the family, and to this blog, he'll ALWAYS be known as 'Bunny'.

  4. Bunny is fine. Born at Easter and wearing his long johns on his head. I suspect I am looking at a PM in the making and not a brain surgeon.

    1. I thought 'Chump' was great too. I can't think why they didn't choose it.

  10. Yes, you have to be extremely careful how you name your offspring. For instance, I have never yet met a 'Vincent' yet who has not been some sort of petty criminal, and every 'Max' I have ever met has been an insufferable c****. As far as 'Iggy' goes, don't even think about it.

    1. Please delete one 'yes' from the above.

    2. Please delete the 'yes' and substitute a 'yet', then delete in from the other one. Sorry.

    3. Make your mind up; how many 'yeses' and how many 'yets'. Stand by your beds!

  17. Great name! 30 years from now, if he hears someone calling him 'Bunny' when he's in a crowded place, he'll know it's either family or someone from Blogland. LOL

  18. Handsome boy! Bunny it tis. Love it. X

  19. It would be great when he met someone with a wwjd bracelet. Cute baby. Love the hat.

  20. I love the names Cro, particularly Auriel. We called our son Dominic because my first husband's ancestors were all French and it was a family name. That made it easy as there has been one every generation.
    Not sure what Bunny will think when he gets to be of girl friend age - depends upon whether she likes rabbits I suppose. I seem to remember that in the army all chaps with the surname Austin were automatically nicknamed Bunny.
