I have read a number of highly amusing blog posts over the last year about names for little girl’s private parts.
The reason I have read so many is because I was hoping that I might find one that I liked enough to use.
But I didn’t.
Finding a name for ‘it’ has been playing on my mind for a while now because I just don’t like any of the options. Fanny and Fadge have been used regularly in reference to mine (even though I hate them both) but neither of these are suitable for a little girl. Fanny sounds incredibly dated and fadge is just wrong.
I know the scientific names should be used as it’s not like we give our arms and legs nicknames but ‘vagina’, ‘labia’ and ‘vulva’ just sound a bit too clinical for me. And names like ‘flower’ are just a bit too pathetic.
To be honest I had given up on ever finding suitable name and was planning on not calling it anything when Iyla came up with one all by herself.
She calls it a ‘Bum Bum’ which I actually don’t mind.
She has even given willies a new name.
The other day she ran into see Dad2BabyInsomniac when he was in the bath. It was the first time she has ever properly noticed his willy and she pointed at it, then shouted ‘WOAH CRAZY BUM BUM’!
It was honestly one of the funniest things I have ever heard and after posting it all over Facebook, I just had to mention it on here.
Don’t worry though, at some point I will teach her the real names. I wouldn’t want her asking her husband (yes she will be married before having sex) to put his Crazy Bum Bum in her Bum Bum……. although I would rather that then her asking him to put his Sausage in her Gash.
What names do you use for your little one’s private parts?!
