If it's a son you could call him Walker :D or Basil (Haydon), Cameron (Brig), Elijah (Craig), Elmer (T. Lee), Evan (Williams), Jock (Formidable Jock :D ), George (T. Stagg), Hakushu (no idea what it means), Frisky (Frisky Whisky - perhaps best avoided),
Henry (McKenna), Magdalene (St Magdalene).

Skål!

Aberfeldy or Aberlour ("Ab" or "Abby").

Benriach, Benrinnes, or Benromach ("Ben").

Blair Athol ("Blair" or...no, don't go there).

Bunnahabhain ("Bunny").

Convalmore ("Connie").

Craigellachie ("Craig").

Dalwhinnie ("Winnie").

Deanston ("Dean").

Edradour ("Ed").

Glen Grant.

Glen Keith.

Mannochmore ("Manny").

Millburn ("Millie").

Miltonduff ("Milt").

Mortlach ("Mort").

Rosebank ("Rose").

Talisker ("Tal").

Tamdhu or Tamnavulin ("Tammy").

Tobermory ("Toby").

Tomatin or Tomintoul ("Tom").

I'm just a bachelor, and you can take what I say with a grain of salt, but winding up your wife doesn't seem like a good idea to me, especially when she's pregnant. :wink:

Or Isla, if you want to have a hope of people pronouncing it correctly. Like Isla St Clair, the singer. I heard her interviewed on the radio--if I recall correctly, she said she'd grown up as "Isla White" (get it? Isle of Wight! Bad parents.) and swore she'd marry the first guy who asked, as long as his name wasn't "Mann".

"And the sailor said 'Whisky, you're a fine girl....'" :roll: Nope, doesn't work.

I have a co-worker named Islay. And she said i was the first person at work to pronounce her name right on the first try. And i thought whisky would never help me out at work.

I hosted a whisky tasting one night for my office. One of our colleagues, Peter, had a particuarly impressive talent for loudly breaking wind.

After moving through some Speysiders, we turned our attention to Islay and picked up an Ardbeg 10.

You can imagine the laughter that erupted when I asked, "Who can smell peat?" :lol:

Cheers,

Someone has the suggestions seriously and named their child "Edradour" and received a cased of whisky.



Therefore I think the best bet is to name the poor child Ardbeg, and hope they have the same generous 'spirit.' If you pardon the pun.

If it is a baby girl, you could call it Te Bheag (means little female).
