I can't help it, for me the name Dangereuse evokes the 12th century equivalent of a female rapper. Whatever that would have looked like! :eek:

A good alternative to Adele (my favorite) is Adela. William the Conqueror had a daughter (or was it a granddaughter) named Adela.

Just out of curiousity...does your website have IP address identification, or can we vote every day for our favorites? ;)

I think Kitty Fitzroy sounds very nice. I've put it in Other myself.

I really like Felix too, that is one of my favourite boys' names.

Lady Moppet likes Dangereuse but is mindful that some of her children might want to live in the 21st century instead of the 13th when they are adults, in which case Dangereuse may not be an ideal name, unless, indeed, she plans a career in the music business! It would look great on an album cover.

I've set these two polls so you can vote as often as you like. I will add in people's suggestions as options, otherwise only I will be able to see them. Going to do it now.

When I went to vote I had your avatar in mind, so was trying to think of feline names. Pussy was out for obvious reasons!

How long will the polls be up? And when are the twins due?

OOps! :o But, hey! My initials are KJ too! I could have meant me. Or, on the other hand, maybe not!

The polls will be up till the end of August. Lady Moppet is due to give birth in September, which makes it seem like she and KJ only have sex at Christmas (when, you'll recall, Oscar was conceived) but KJ assures me that he and Lady Moppet "frolic several times a week, if not a night."

No-one has voted for Richard as yet. Lady Moppet would be unlikely to pick it anyway as John already has a Richard Fitzroy and will have another Richard with Queen Isabella. She has bought a baby name book. John by contrast has lost interest in the debate and will only make facetious suggestions, like Flopsy, or Cottontail.

The new adventure is not ready yet, but Lady Moppet has been writing a post about how Oscar and John adjusted to her pregnancy.

Would Lady Moppet consider doing a solo interview?
