How We Picked The Name Eliza:

It took us ages to pick our Eliza’s name – it was a long process of me suggesting an obscure old lady name and being instantly vetoed by my husband.

Both Alex and I are known by short versions of our names, so we knew we wanted something with nickname potential. After a long process of elimination, we decided to go with Eliza, which is a family name on Alex’s side of the family, one we loved and one we knew had nickname potential.

As always with babies, after a long process of picking a name, it turns out there’s now a million different things we call her, most of which are only tenuously linked to her name.

    Chloe rarely gets called her name. She is generally known as Boo-boo. Then my mum sometimes calls her Ruby Lee (which is her middle names – and were names she was going to have before she was born presuming she was a girl!). As a bump she was called Junior.
    Her other nickname is Puckypoo. A phrase I thought my other half kept calling her. It should be Duckypoo (a reference to late 80s kids cartoon Count Duckula) but I hear Puckypoo. So it’s stuck!
