Following on from the comments that a location-name must mean that's where bub was conceived, what names should your kids have?

Sophie was Koh Lanta and Ethan is a little less certain as I'd only just started tracking. He should either be Manning or Koh Lak.

My friend made me laugh recently by suggesting she call her unborn child 'petri dish'. Bless her. wub.gif

My eldest would have been Spencer (apartment on Spencer Street in Melbourne). We considered it for a middle name, or Victoria for a girl wink.gif

Our youngest would have been the name of our old suburb.

What if you have multiple children all conceived in the same place. Some of us don't jet about as much as you fancy pants lot and I suspect all my kids will be called 'Balmain'. laugh.gif

Come now LJM, you just have to be a bit more creative. There's detail in everything - for example, should I have stayed home, I could have a;
Manning (Suburb)
Godwin (Avenue)
La-z-boy (Ooo, almost gangsta rapper stylee); and,
Chianti (for the bottle I would have had to have consumed to agree to no.4!)

PS. Anyone still harbouring a grudge for the tim tam slight, I have moved three times since.

Well, she could have been named something boring like bed or house. But of all the possible names, the only one that sounds anything like an actual name, is Helen.

Yep, I would have have 2 kids named Rozelle! (I guess Rosie is close tongue.gif ). Same bed, same house - well they are only 17 months apart wink.gif

I guess I could have had Rosie and Victor. Or perhaps if we wanted to be cre8ive then Sackville, Welcome or 3 Weeds laugh.gif

My two were conceived at the same time so I'm in a bit of a pickle there! laugh.gif

Our suburb wouldn't make a good first name, and our street name is the name of a bird which wouldn't suit, either. Brisbane and Australia, perhaps?? tongue.gif

Before birth our two were affectionately named Petri and Frostie. I think I even referred to them in my mummies groups on here as such. Accordingly mine would both have been Sydney... Or I could have named one Sussex as the IVF clinic was on Sussex street.

All 3 of mine were conceived in the same place so I guess one should be named after the street, another after the suburb and the third after the city tongue.gif None of those are good names though

Zack could have been Lennox (we lived on Lennox St). Funny I was tossing up the name for this one.

Ashton- Could have been Stuart (We live on Stuart St now)

Amahlia- Still Stuart St and I am not creative enough to think of anything else same with this one.
