A person of many different names myself, I have always found it difficult to call the women in my family the name they were given, no matter how fine that name might be. It’s continuing it seems.

I’ve called my wife Gorgeous from the very start. Then along came my daughter and, despite the fact that she is named after one of my other girlfriends, (yes, I don’t know how I got away with that) she naturally became Little Gorgeous.

Now she has her own daughter, lovely little Lily. I like that name, so she will be called Micro Gorgeous.

    Bit of a mouthful, isn't it? But I think Micro-Gorgeous is a lovely name - just don;t shorten it to Mike!!

    Don’t worry Drew, I won’t... her surname isn’t Hunt anyway!

    Lol, now that would be unfortunate!
    As a teenager I knew someone of that name - he coped with it well :)

    Me and my bros have heard it all. Mike, Isaac and Eric... and y’know, everyone thinks they’ve just thought of it! Backs are broad round here.😊
