Before you bring out your torches and pitchforks, no I don't want to name a future child Quinoa. On pinterest there is a board called My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter, it is hilarious. They are pictures of fashionable and beautiful children who are posted under the premise that the blogger who writes these posts has an imaginary daughter named "Quinoa". The writer is clever and funny, but what I adore about this board aside from the adorably dressed children are the fantastic and strangely named cohorts of imaginary child-fashion-icon Quinoa. http://pinterest.com/tiffanywbwg/my-...dler-daughter/
These are the names of some of "Quinoa's friends":
What do you think of these names? Could any of them be wearable? Can you think of any names that could be well-suited to this fashion forward hoarde of children? Use your imagination or your guilty pleasures! Or both!
Booker, Ridley, Hugo, Jasper, and Elias are wearable. The rest are over-the-top or just dumb as names.
Humboldt! It's a surname, and the one of a well-known explorer too. My university is named after Alexander von Humboldt.
Buahaha! What a great idea. This board is hysterical. "When out in public with Quinoa, I can hear the sound of hipster ovaries swelling with want" made me bust up laughing. I love her BFF Chevron.
Hallifax- Reminds me of halitosis. Not wearable.
Humboldt- Seems like a surname. I can see it being vintage-trendy (if that's a style lol). Bolt would be a cool nn.
Booker- Wearable and adorable!
Ridley- Wearable and adorable!
Edgington- Not usable.
Houndstooth- Not usable.
Chevron- Reminds me of Cheyenne. Wearable. I think it's cute. Chevy and Ronnie would be cute nn's.
Barcelona- Place name. Usable.
Fendi- I think it's nice. Reminds me of Bindi (Steve Irwin's daughter).
Quinoa is perfect. Not good for anyone real, but so perfectly hits the mood for the Pinterest board photos. Love it. Thanks for sharing.
That...is HILARIOUS! Thanks so much for sharing. Also: your "torches and pitchforks" comment was perfect.
And you know, if Quinoa were actually pronounced the way it looks, Quinn-oh-ah, it would absolutely be the ultimate trendy hipster name. But it's actually KEEN-wa, go figure. All the names crack me up; along with the photos, they just add to the snark of the actual captions.
Wow, how did I miss this board on pinterest?! Thanks for the heads up, entangler.
I think Edington could be a cute nn/elaboration for Edward for those that don't use Ed, Eddy or Ned.
Gaultier is the real(?) name of singer Gotye, but I guess since he doesn't go by it, it must not be super wearable.
Humboldt and Chevron could defintely take off.
That is an ADORABLE website! It reminds me of the first chapter of the baby naming book 'Hello my name is Pabst'
ruolan, Gaultier is actually the French equivalent of his first name, Wouter, according to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotye
Hugo, Jasper, and Elias are the only ones that sound like real names to me. They're not really my style, though. The rest sound like last names, although I guess that's what's popular these days.
