Would it be so wrong?

Theoretically speaking, if one had responsibility for a nearly three week old mini person, and say after three weeks you get to register their birth, and as part of this process one has to decide on the person's nomenclature, and say if one hadn't picked out a middle name yet... would it be really bad to put down the word "Danger" on that space on the green form?
Just so he could impress the chicks in years to come with the line "Danger's my middle name" while they try and talk him out of some daring, but brave and exciting venture...? Surely he'd thank us?

I love the way your mind works! Hope some of it rubs off on Baba Danger Cushions!

Words A Day said...

of course he would! I would! I wish Danger was my middle name...

on second thoughts - would it be a bad luck kind of name?...what about "handsome"...(but you don't want to tempt fate)..
or lucky, but ditto...
(I'm not very decisive today)

The Dead Acorn said...

This has to happen. You can't throw something like that out to your readership and then not do it.

The Bug said...

I agree with the Acorn - you must do it now. It's a FABULOUS idea :)

Titus said...

Do it! If he doesn't like it when he grows up just mess about with the pronunciation a bit.

Dominic Rivron said...

Better than "Indecision". Just tried googling possibilities... Trouble, or Action or Rejection or Misery, even. Capability (aka Brown) perhaps? Angst? Prestigious? Then there's Multitask... I like Multitask... :)

Peter Goulding said...

How about Can't-think-of-a-middle-name for a middle name?
Wasn't there an Elvis song about my middle name is Misery?

Ross said...

On number one, we didn't have a first name at three and a half weeks, so you're well ahead of the game there.
"Danger Cushions".

Domestic Oub said...

How about - Baby, Aidan Gerald, Surname.

But his double barrelled second name is pronounced with the 'ai' of Aidan silent. And the 'ald' of Gerald is also silent.

This is not convoluted...

Socks - fingers crossed...
Words - decisive would be another good one.
Acorn and Bug - I could just not do so and say I did, ye'd never know
Titus - See Oub's suggestion re pronouncing - I can go for that or Daniel Gerard.
Dominic - Multitask is another great one. :-) I can see it on his cv now!
Hmm Peter - the space isn't really big enough for that
Tks Ross, that does make me feel better
Oub - Daniel Gerard either?! great minds...

As long as you don't add 'mouse' after it.

swiss said...

surely some irish synonym. riosca or somesuch?

Niamh B said...

starting to lean towards the cv enhancing ones now - multitasking, discipline, teamwork or modesty maybe...
Rachel, he deffo sounds like a mouse sometimes too, but where would he find a friend called penfold?!
