What's in a name ?


Kai Rooney for example ,is it me or does it jar when run by your ears, no doubt he's a sweet little baby but what possesses people when it comes to names ?


The woman down the road from me is called Terrie-lee


Her children are called;


Alfie


Shanie


Tillie


Mollie


Harvey ( pronounced 'arvey ) usually followed by "get 'ere you little bart'"


You would think that someone would run the names by a friend or husband/lover to see how they scan, but no not here. Each name when shouted at full tilt is capable of setting a car alarm off, when done together it rattles the roof tiles however , perversely I listen out for it as I do secretly enjoy it


Conversely, a lady at my sons gymnastic club has an energetic & unruly child aged about 4. This little darling is called William. Mummy is classic pure bread bonkers english posh , her voice is not unlike Cybil in Fawlty towers when she barks "Basil" at Mr Fawlty.

Now that voice is combined with a pitch that could sharpen knives, with a clipped delivery that seems to have dissected all the vowels out of "William" so it now comes out as "WLLM"


Boy do I like that, yes sir I could listen to him being called again and again, again and again, again and again every week & what a fun filled hour that it is.


I had considered having my ears syringed sometime soon but now i think I'll wait a while


Oh and incase this sounds a bit snooty I chose my children's names in a really simple but practical way, I took Mrs W**F to the park and shouted the various choices like you would calling your dogs,.

Tom & Sam worked best, easy & neat when followed by a whistle


Good boys

He's quite well known WMTD, just a few doors down from that German barber, Herr Kutt.

    • Aria and Dan were again amazing in their quick response to my problem (leaking toilet flush), their excellent workmanship and super politeness.  I have used them several times before and am always impressed. Last but not least,  they charge completely honestly.  Thank you!
    • Fair point. They could then blame themselves rather than older people for apparently ruining their futures.
    • I would suggest the fabric stores around soho.  But if you don’t mind shopping online, I’ve found a couple that might suit what you’re looking for online:   Orange https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/atcham-braid-col-04-orange-cream/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh9GWPOUamGa77QNpGdANkK0r7F7y-4uCliLseY-dfUcZDCTMLDAXQRoCU7kQAvD_BwE   Green https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/plain-straight-gimp-braid-col-617-green/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh-63bOJYHpbGmACA9iPsRXmwmX8iY5y8Ks6XxDq1lnVLdE8gp-pfjxoCXs4QAvD_BwE   i would also suggest Etsy for things like this.   Hope you find what you’re looking for 😊
    • We live nearby and often chatted with friendly Joe. Sad to see him go, he said he was retiring. Heard it’s going to be a café/coffee shop on the day he left.
