Default Naming = torture

We are 3 here and the name for hedgie has to be agreed upon by all of us, no democracy on this one.

My husband and I agree in most names but since our daughter is 7, she doesn't understand most of the names we have suggested (Shakespeare, Hamlet, etc)

For the time been, we "agreed" on Ichiro Spiky (Ichiro means first born son in Japanese), our daughter likes that one however, she is open to a different name but so far, nothing. She likes Mr. Prickles likes pickles but my husband said no to a sentence for name.

I need ideas!!! Help me out!

Thx

He's adorable. Do you already have him? I never name my animals before I've seen them in real life. Then it's often very easy because a name which feels right immediately pops up (most of the time). For me it's easier than actually "thinking" of a name.

We are picking him up tomorrow morning.

Since I have a 7 year old daughter with the same bad creativity for names as mine, we started brainstorming a while ago. All because she starts turning her name into a weird boy version of it as the name or she would pick my husbands old dog's name (the dog has been dead for over 30 years), therefore we had to start soon. Maybe tomorrow when we get him things will change.

Ps. I'm so "creative" that my teddy bear's name was bear and my husband told me when I was pregnant that he would veto the name "baby" for our baby. lol.

I usually have a general list. Then pick a name once we have the animal, then my kids change the name. Example, my last conure was supposed to be named cuddle-bug. My kids named her pugzy-butt. They even taught her to say pugzy butt. Boston terrier was supposed to be Beans. No he is Max.
A lot of the time you have a name picked and it's perfect..... For a different animal.

If you did end up naming your child baby, think of all the "nobody puts baby in the corner" opportunities you would have!

For what it's worth, I usually call my hedgehog something new every day. Booger, stinker, grumplestilkstin, poops, etc
