    What did you call them and why ? Our's Stuart 27yo/Iain25 for us solid names.
    Why the wrong spelling of Ian, as no doubt he was named after Ian Chapman or Ian Mellor

      I have always though this but I regularly see the Formula One team and other plurals of what already looks like a plural being referred to as the Williamsis rather than just the Williams regardless of how many cars they are talking about

      The plural should always have ‘ on the end too rather than being written as “belonging to”

      Not explaining this very well but hopefully you get my drift.

      He is wrong children is the plural of child so it is children's names. Names belonging to the children. Spoken language is quite often different to how it should be written.

      The eldest was born blue, so we called her Sky. The youngest was jaundiced......we called her Melanie
      Actually, it was Natalie and Danielle, believe me when I say that is not as funny

      Eleanor, which means the bright one, now aged 37.
      Sophie, which is Greek for wisdom, now aged 34, nearly 35.

      And we took the choice of names, including the meanings, very seriously.

      And David means "firkin well 'ard so don't try it on with me, sunshine...... or to be more precise, I believe it is the Hebrew for beloved or darling, which doesn't quite command the same street cred.

      At least that’s what he keeps calling himself.

      Quoted people that debating whether 'children's' was wrong when @Goring-by-Seagull was talking about the rogue apostrophe in ours.
