A Name For Toni’s New Baby

Toni’s Request


When Toni, my Spanish neighbour, had finished cleaning my apartment on Sunday, she asked me to ask you from all over the world if you can suggest a name for her new boy due to be born around Christmas.




She doesn’t want a Spanish name such as Carlos, Pedro, Domingo etc. but an unusual name. Her daughter’s name is Ariadne and her son’s name is Eidan just to give you an idea. If she picks one of your suggestions I will send you a little gift as a prize (not the baby boy !)


Sir Ralph de Blog

is my suggestion !


My ancestry


It could have almost been >



My Family Tree



My Ancestors ?


I just love my love houses.


The ancestors were very inventive…….


……….big smokers……..


……. but failed at making necklaces for the court ladies.


They invented dog power cars……..


…….. and baby carriers for ice-skating


They became high ranking in the Bicycle Corps……..


…….. and also invented the wheelie !


They became great mathematicians ……..


…….. and invented word games.


They also were complete failures at plastic surgery.



My up-to-date successes and failures

I’m a success at police public relation work………


……. designing new military wear…….


…..and an expert in international military relations.


I practiced hard on my new keyboard…….


…….and PlayStation controller.


I helped to invent the modern phone-box.


Then I dabbled in fashion………


……… but I never understood why they fired me !


ย I always wondered why I never went into music. I did here !


Health and Safety was always on my mind. Especially for cyclists……..


………and swimming pools………


……..even signs.


I believe in a happy family life…………


……… education ………


….. home management…….


…….matrimonial guidance………


……… or else !



It’s time for me to do some housework………


…….. followed by …………..


……… No ! Eating cookies and having a coffee.

Have you thought of an unusual name for Toni’s new baby boy ?

85 Comments on “A Name For Toni’s New Baby

  1. I like those ideas you are trying to suggest (so funny). I am not good at coming up name. I will wait and see others ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish Toni good luck with her baby name regardless.


    • Hi YC ๐Ÿ˜€ I am sure that you will think of a name. As Toni is following my blog by email, she will read what you and the other commenters suggest. Ralph ๐Ÿ˜€


      • I thought of few and would like to put them out for Toni to consider.
        Caleb, Theo (Toni might know this name if she follows the recent famous movie), Anthony (I like this name and to have confusing fun between mother and son names). ๐Ÿ™‚


      • Brilliant YC ๐Ÿ˜€ So funny ! I can see confusion arising. My family generations had no imagination. My grandfather, father and myself were all named Ralph. So if someone called “Ralph!” no one answered ! ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. Call her Sparkle because this child shall shine a light in the world.


    • Hi Lynne ๐Ÿ˜€ Sparkle is great ! Is it right for a baby boy though ? Hugs. Ralph xox โค


    • Hi Beth ๐Ÿ˜€ As Toni lives in a Spanish mountain working village/ railway station village, Evergreen is a brilliant name. Ralph xox โค


  3. I am really bad at boy names. My son has my middle name and my husband’s middle name, and then three girls, whew!
    Best wishes to Toni, though ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Hi Jolene ๐Ÿ˜€ I bet you can think of something ! On behalf of Toni. Thanks. Ralph xox โค


      • I’ve asked my girls, and they say, Devonte, Darius, Imani, Breshawn, Monty, Cato, Ivan, Javarius, Jacobi, and Aaronite.


  4. Tyrion

    Oh, wait. Those are from Game of Thrones, which means everyone is naming their kids that, maybe.

    I will keep thinking…


  5. Hi Not ๐Ÿ˜€ Brilliant names ! Thank heavens you didn’t suggest Muppet names ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox โค


  6. I need to think about this. As there is time, I’d like to reserve my names.
    I do like Beau, though!


    • Hi Resa ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thanks for thinking. Please do some for me while you are at it !
      Beau ? You Geste !! lol. No, it’s a fine name !
      Hugs. Ralph xox โค


      • โค Are you kidding! Thinking for 2? It's not like I'm the most beautiful Toni, eating for 2.
        Tell you what,Ralph! I may not be able to think for 2, but if some other chick comes along and makes you feel like you want to shut down the bicycle shed again, turn me on to her!
        I'll take a piece of her! If she survives, I'll consider her application!
        Okay, you Geste about Beau… but I'm working on it.
        Give Toni my regards, and tell her she is a true beauty of he earth…or Greek Mythology! xoxoxo


      • Thank you so much for being my bodyguard my friend. The internet women have lost a cool customer as I am keeping well away from dating sites from now on. At the moment the back of the bike sheds are well and truly open. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Once Toni gets her figure back she would look gorgeous in one of your gowns as you are a very special designer and those creations of yours would suit her so well.

    • Hi Vanessa ๐Ÿ˜€ That’s okay. You are allowed to be hot. Just watch your neck, okay ? Ralph xox โค


    • Hi Annie ๐Ÿ˜€ Very seasonal names my friend. My birthday is on the 15th December and I thought it was grossly unfair that when I was a kid my sister got 2 presents, one for Christmas and the other for her birthday in April and I only got one present because Christmas and my birthday were so close together.


  7. I am horrid at this sort of thing. I had such trouble naming my two pet toads that I ended up naming them Big Toadie and Little Toadie. I don’t suggest Toni name her son Toadie, btw.

    I will give it a stab-

    Franz (my brother’s middle name), Akemi, Fyodor, River, Toulouse, Wind, Altan, Tristan, Bergren, Monet, Ingmar, and Siegfried- Those are the names that fizzled to mind. Best wishes to Toni and her naming endeavours!

    Fabulous and exceedingly entertaining post as always, dear Ralph! Cheers,

    Autumn Jade


    • Hi Autumn Jade ๐Ÿ˜€ I love the variety of names you have placed before Toni. Personally I like Wind as I’ve not heard that name before. I think you did excellently well my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox โค

  8. Bryn (meaning Hill in Welsh), Whittington, Rodin, Roald, Charleston, Coleridge, Kendric… phew, this is hard work. That’s enough from me.


    • Hi Gallivanta ๐Ÿ˜€ Phew, so many ! Well done my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox โค


  9. I like strong names so here’s my line-up…..Maximilian, Isadore, Dante and Horatio – all these can be shortened. Or, Albert which I think is cute. My boy is called Theodore and several people have named their babies after him ๐Ÿ™‚ His second name is Joseph so that would work with the Christmas aspect! Good luck, Toni xox


    • Hi Lottie my friend ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much for your magnificent selection of names. I am sure that Toni will need the next 3 months to Christmas to make her choice as there are so many names from you and all the other fine commenters.
      Is it hot where you are ? It’s baking here and humid !
      Lots of cooling down hugs. Ralph xox โค

      • it’s muy scorchio here – if anything it’s getting hotter! 45/46c in the sun and yes, it’s very humid. lots of hugs to you xoxoxx


  10. I think you are a google images addict, Ralph…. I am not good with names but will return if anything comes to mind x


    • Hi Wendy ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes. I think I may be a Google images addict ! I like to fill out a post with a bit of fun. This one could have just been a photo of Toni and a couple of sentences. My next post is tearing my hair out as I have 100+ of my photos to go through, select the best, resize and caption them ! No Google ones to be seen there.
      Boy. It’s been a hot couple of days, yes ? Could do with some rain. Hugs. Ralph xox โค


      • Ah, yes, so I understand but I am in the Uk with my parents now this week and it’s like summer has gone already….looking forward to your next pos! X


  11. Oh lord, boys names are difficult, Ralpha….Lol, what about that one? Seriously I come up with all these fancy ancy ones for characters but ask me for a real one and oh gawwwwwd. My younger girl who is called Eilish, had a little boy recently and they called him Riley. But I don’t know that goes with the names she has and you really do have to think of the names of your other kids. Wish her luck and a Merry Christmas when it comes ! x


    • Hey Shey ๐Ÿ˜€ Riley is a good name. Toni will be reading all these comments via Google Translate, so I am glad that you are on your best behaviour (I’m not !). Big hug. Ralpha xox โค


    • Hi Katie ๐Ÿ˜€ Hmmmmm……no ! Aaaaaah……..definitely not ! But Will is good ! Well done my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox โค


      • I know that you love calling me Ra, Katie, but, come on, you made these names up ! Rastud indeed ! lol ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Maybe Rasteed? All inspired and unique names. Rolling “r” is cool. Although would it be pronounced Ratheed in Barthelona? No, that’s not right. Thaddeus? Free association is taking over. :D. Blaze? Sol? Ratorro? Hey I kinda like the last one. I need to go to sleep. lol


  12. Oh, it’s difficult to pick unusual names these days! All the unusual ones are becoming more common. Caden, Liam….I like those. What about Romeo? Roman, I like. Best of luck to her and her new family addition. I look forward to seeing what she decided and seeing her little one! Cheers, Ralph. xoxox ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Hi Amy ๐Ÿ˜€ You have given Toni 4 great names. Thank you. And also thanks for your wishes for Toni and her baby. Ralph xox โค


    • Hi Lumar ๐Ÿ˜€ Brilliant ! Thank you so much. Ralph xox โค


    • Hi Debby ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much. Have a great day. Ralph xox โค


  13. Cool post dear Ralph.. I love the PlayStation controller hehe ๐Ÿ˜€
    Hugs, Aquileana ๐Ÿ˜›


    • Hello Amalia my friend ๐Ÿ˜€
      LOL. I do have a PlayStation here and love to play Final Fantasy XII when I have the time. Of course, an upgrade to Final Fantasy (let me guess ?) 34C would be so much more fun ๐Ÿ˜‰ Game ? or game on ! Big hug back. Ralph xox โค

  14. You have gone beyond the call of duty with today’s photo humor. LOL. What a riot. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks! Now for a name/names…hum.
    Caelius (means heaven),
    Valerius (means to be strong),
    Caiside (means curly haired)
    Quanah (means feather in Native American)
    Aldric (means power),
    Armel (combo of bear and prince).
    Okay, that’s my list. ๐Ÿ˜€ Love ya! โค


    • Hi IR ๐Ÿ˜€ Very funny ! One small point. I’m not the dad ! Ralph ๐Ÿ˜€


      • You are sure sticking fast to that story ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am just going with those I know in this scenario. So if we take “Ralph” out of the equation – and not knowing daddy’s name I would revise the thought process:
        Toni ==> Tony ==> Anthony ==> AnToni = Anton ๐Ÿ˜€


      • She may like those names, but adds confusion to her already hectic life. ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Hi Elisa ๐Ÿ˜€ Nice to see you here, peeping out of your hidey-hole. A great name ! Waving back. Ralph xox โค


  15. Oh -Ralph – You always kill me with your sense of humor!
    That we f’d up evolution of man is HILARIOUS!

    Congrats to Toni & her familia!
    My boy name suggestions are:
    Alessandro, Alexander or Alastair (Defender of the people)
    Roy (Regal, Kingly)
    Roger or Rogelio (Famous spearman)

    I like names with a strong feel to them. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Hi RoSy ๐Ÿ˜€ It is funny. My favourite is the wet floor warning sign floating on the swimming pool.
      You have come up with some great names my friend. I am sure Toni will love them.
      Happy Sunday RoSy ! Ralph xox โค


  16. How about

    Love your humour with these


    • Hi Pam ๐Ÿ˜€ That’s what I like to hear. Glad you had fun. Ralph xox โค


  17. It’s taken me a while,

    Gabriel, short form Gabe. Very Festive.
    And some welsh names
    Aidan, Bryn which means hill, Rhys
    And my fave


    • Hi Becky ๐Ÿ˜€ Such a wonderful selection of names. Toni read through all the comments and was excited about the names put forward by everyone. She will be reading yours this week. Ralph xox โค


    • Hi Shousie ๐Ÿ˜€ Welcome to Bluefish Way. I totally agree with you. What a fun mug ! Hugs. Ralph xox โค


  18. (โœฟโ— โ€ฟโ— )..Sa ai o seara plina de tandrete si iubire
