Hunter Desmond David Dinnigan c**ks

"family sources said in naming her longed-for son, Dinnigan has honoured her father Desmond, who is in poor health."

WDYT?

I cant help but think that Hunter will be known as a c*ck hunter... Chickens of course  unsure.gif

Maybe bub will be know as Hunter Dinnigan-c**ks which isn't all that bad.

I think I would have insisted he be named Hunter Dinnigan. I mean really.

I dislike the name hunter. I especially dislike hunter matched with that surname.

I was expecting something more romantic and opulant from Colette. Similar to her fashion.

Something I love but would never have the balls myself.

It's funny the impression we get from celebrity baby names. Often very unpredictable but I guess we forget their is another half in the equation to please.

Well you can tell she isn't a member of EB. Had she posted that in the baby naming section she might have changed her mind.
I really expected more from her.

a bit huh.gif about 3 D middle names - I get the first and last, but why add in David?


QUOTE
The baby boy arrived weighing in at four kilograms, in a ‘‘really surprisingly, fabulously normal delivery’’ with his proud dad, Bradley c**ks, and big sister, Estella, waiting close by. His second name, Desmond, is a nod to Dinnigan’s Irish yachtie father, Des, while his third name, David, is after Bradley’s father.

I don't mind Hunter but I don't think it works well with the surname.

Hunter is the MN of my DS2, so obviously I love it.  Having said that, I think its a particularly bad choice with the surname of c**ks.  Can you imagine what teasing he will get in the playground?  "Hey Hunter, are you a hunter of c**ks?".  It makes Collette and her husband seem like they haven't fully thought out the possible ramifications/teasing possibilities of their son's name.

I hope his surname will be hyphenated: Dinnigan-c**ks.  That makes it (slightly) better. But, as I always say, its not my baby: they can call him whatever they like.

I'm usually the first one to say that kids get teased for all sorts of things and calling your kid Oswald, or whatever, is fine if you really love the name. I think this one is a bit too much in terms of teasing potential, however. Not in a homophobic way, though. I think it would be equally bad if the surname referred to female genitalia.

I think a boy called Hunter is better than a girl called Anita or Iona, however. tongue.gif

I used to work with a Michael c*ck who used to introduce himself by saying 'Hi, I'm Michael c*ck, its a prick of a name'.

He changed it by deed poll once his father died.

Absolutely awful with that surname. Poor kid.

Desmond Dinnigan actually sounds all right to my ear. Admittedly I have an almost pathological affection for alliteration but surely that would be better than Hunter c**ks?

Hunter is the name of my eldest child. He was named after the author Hunter S Thompson, and was given the middle names Alexander Sidney. But his surname isn't c**ks. Hunter and c**ks together are a dreadful combination, for obvious reasons.

I saw a FB post on a friend's wall where a guy said "I was a teenage boy once, and I know for a fact he's going to get 'C0ck Hunter' all the time."

"Yes", I thought - yes he will sad.gif Poor baby boy. He'll probably go by David when he's older.

Hunter isn't bad but it's NMS.  

At least his surname isn't "O'c**ks".  Small consolation, really.

I'm one for sibsets and Estella and Hunter just seem such an odd pair.

Add the possible nickname and she definitely could have done with some advice from the EB naming forum.

I hope he goes by her surname.

I don't dislike Hunter that much, it would have been possibly better even if the surname was spelt Cox but as it is it just doesn't work I don't think.

And it doesn't really go with her DDs name either.

Odd choice.

#24 antigone_

Posted 08 November 2012 - 03:50 PM

Yes it is an odd sibset, but I guess the kids have different dads, so that would come into play. Estella is a stunning name.

I just cannot get behind this choice at all. Oh well, their kid and all of that...

Make that O.M.F.G.

She def should have consulted us. I write neurotic posts about my babies names but this is the reason, just in case I didn't think of something like this.
