“And we can go …”
There was a time when I wanted children. I think it was 4th May 1989. But the feeling passed.
In that fleeting moment though, I immediately had that whole tricky naming them thing sorted. That was thanks to ‘Treasure’ by the Cocteau Twins. I’d simply name them after each album track: Ivo, Lorelei, Beatrix, Persephone, Pandora, Amelia, Aloysius, Cicely, Otterley and Donimo.
Yes, ok, poor Otterley may get a bit of stick in the school playground, and Aloysius will be forever repeating his name to call centre staff, but each one struck me as simply wonderful. However, since I won’t be needing them, feel free to use this idea yourself.
