Curly doesn't like to name her dolls much. She's has lots, and only a few get actual names. Most of them are just called what they are. She has a My Little Pony baby unicorn that came with the name Sweetie Bell. It even speaks and calls itself Sweetie Bell. Curly still insists on calling it Unicorn. She does have a Target rip-off American Girl doll she named Sally and a large doll that my Granny made for me when I was little that we call Rose, because I named her that when I was a child. The rest of her dolls are just called Baby or Dolly or whatever brand name they came with.
Today, she came up with a new name for one of her dolls.
Not Naked, with a long A sound, but Nekkid, pronounced just like it looks. It's a Barbie doll in a bikini that she got for her birthday last month. She had been watching Toy Story 3 with her brother, and abruptly stopped watching it to go have a tea party with her dolls. She spread out napkins for her Princess Barbie doll, her Disney Princess Ariel doll, one of her baby dolls, and her bikini-clad Barbie. She came running back in to the kitchen and told me to come join her tea party. I walked in the room and she said, "Mommy, you sit next to Nekkid." "Who?" I replied. "My doll, Nekkid." "Why is she named Nekkid?" I asked. "She just is," was the reply.
So apparently, we now have a new doll resident in our house named Nekkid. I just can't wait until she's playing with friends and says, "Mommy, where's Nekkid?" or "I wanna play with Nekkid" or "I want Nekkid." Oh, goods times!
