Life Changing, Love Inducing, All Powerful Toddler Naming Contest

Our friend Chuck sent us this terrifying picture of my baby to confirm my last post's assertion that BabyG is more aptly TodderG.



Speaking of which: I never liked the name BabyG and am finding TodderG intolerable. I'm not sure I can ever write the word again it's so bad.

I therfore hereby and because of announce:
direct from MaGreen, GreenDaddy & the todder formerly known as BabyG:
the one and only, the first ever, never again, higly unique and extraordinary:

NAME!
THAT!
TODDLER!
CONTEST!
EXTRAVAGANZA!

Rules are: in the comments, you suggest one to fourteen possible blogland names for the toddler pictured above (or anywhere below). Hopefully the names will either adhere to the general rules of nomenclanture at Green Parenting, or completely revision them. I have already considered and discarded the following three options: ToddlerG, GreenToddler & Sprout. I like people knowing I'm talking about a toddler right off, but not so much I need toddler in the name. I like Sprout because it's the name of the Jolly Green Giant's little friend, and it's a little green thing. But that's also why I don't like it.

THE WINNER will receive a bottle of MaGreen's Famous, Handmixed, Non-Toxic, Sweet-Smelling All-Purpose Cleaner.

Oh, that photo!

How about Greenlet? (Greenlette?)

Shrijnana said...

Is she musically inclined? If so, how about G-minor?

I like Little Green Bean! Maybe too long to type though...

G-pers.

Teeny-Green (works when she's a teenager too!); Little L; or something entirely unrelated like Sparky or Smiley or Precious One. Did somebody already say Green Girl or G.G.? (My mom goes by G.G. for "Granny Gale").

MaGreen said...

ooooh, all these fantastic choices. i'm deliberating. i like G-prs & Verdita & Greenlet & Little Green Been (LGB. I think that' acronyms pretty well spoken for already, though).

and maybe i'll wait a while and see which of the new nicknames really seems to be the new BabyG. while i'm weaning babyg, i'm not yet ready to give up her name anyway, even if she is a toddler.

I forgot to mention: that picture is priceless. What a stinkeye she's got!

i vote for g-pers or verdita. though, with that picture in mind, bossyG makes me giggle.

Ah, Grasshopper...

I'm probably too late to the party but I'm thinking something that's a combination of "green" and a real name... something like "Vertrude" (vert [green] + Gertrude) or "Maurgreen" (Maureen + green). Maybe the word for green in Hindi or whichever language GreenDaddy knows would make a good name for her.
