name that nanny

PhotobucketLast week, we batted around names for the baby in my current Harlequin Desire, tentatively titled A Baby in the Billionaire’s Boardroom. (I’m still leaning toward Henry, but haven’t gone back through to test out any of the others yet. :winkwink )

This week, I’m in need of a name for the nanny in the story, as well as the nanny agency my hero & heroine contact to hire her.

I’d actually take more than one agency name suggestion, since I have them interviewing employees from several before deciding on one.  And the trick will be avoiding some of the better ones that are in use out there in the real world…because I’ve been looking & all of my favorites are already taken. :Huh

Also like last week, I need to avoid a handful of letters from the alphabet that I’ve already used elsewhere in the story:  A, B, C, E, F, G, H, J, M, R, S, T, V, or W.  With the nanny agency name, we may not be able to avoid them entirely, but let’s not emphasize them, if we can help it. :muahaha

So put on your Mary Poppins, Nanny McPhee, Supernanny thinking caps & let me know what you come up with!

    Nanny names like Molly, Katie, and Julie mean one thing – the husband will sleep with them. So maybe go with Edna or Phyllis or Gertrude. 🙂
