My lawn gnome needs a name. Any suggestions? (And no! As tempting as it is....please, nothing rude!)

My neighbour across the street recently had his outdoor solar lights lifted by light fingers. Apparently he wasn't the only one on the block. While he was talking at me of boobie traps and hooligans, I felt my mind shifting focus over to my own garden.

Nobody vandalized my place, this time. Was I not good enough to steal from? Sure, I haven't been as quick to get my own lights out, but I have a perfectly good lawn gnome sitting out in front just ripe for the pickin'! And he is, after all, certainly more desirable an addition to any garden than a silly old set of solar lights. Jeez!

Any how, I now believe it's time to name the little fellow. I'd hate for him to go through life being labelled just "the gnome".

Any suggestions?

P.S. I realize what he looks like! I've had it pointed out to me numerous times. Clean suggestions only please.

I'm thinking soooooooooooo dirty, but I'll be sweet (that's rare) and say "Chezwick Van Nub-Nub".

I love all those names! You are all much more creative than I am when it comes to gnome names! You twisted people you;-)

My lights are still there, but it looks like I lost a garbage can and my indoor recycling centre can! Maybe some one is setting up home?

I have 2 suggestions. "Shroomie" or "Fun-guy." The second idea is thanks to one of my daughter's favorite DVD's, Barbie's Fantasia. The villain's henchmen were named "Funguys."
I also have one more idea, and it's more along the BWAAA-HA-HA-HA line.

Gned or Gnancy if he's a girl.

Typing for mish-mash mousse... She says, "Mr. Pea-body!!!"

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

LOL Karma. I think we may have a winner!

Mr. I. Is saying "my daughter's Barbie DVD's" like when someone ask for advice by inevidibly saying "I have this friend....";-)

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

OOOOH! I like Mr. Pea-Body. But with my history of squirrels, maybe Mr. Pee the Body would be more appropriate!
