To ALL members of Cafemom Newcomers Group! Effective immediately, NO exceptions. YOU MUST COMPLY! Naming Policy!
There are no 'free passes' or 'exceptions'. Please review the blue edit for cases involving children born before the advent of the internet or before enrollment in Cafemom:
You should only have named your children what we here at Cafemom Newcomers Group told you to name them. Any deviance from our wise advice is strictly prohibited and you are formally on notice to make a poll asking us what to rename your children and ordered to rectify this situation immediately or face permaban from the group.
All members are hereby urged to post acceptable NCG names for members' children below.
Adherance is compulsory.
EDIT: The Gender-neutrality Rule of Cafemom Newcomers Group established in May 2011:
Thou shalt not call thy child by any name which does not indicate immediately the gender of that child. Preferred designations for male children should (but not always) include some sort of reference to war. Names for female children should (but not always) include some sort of reference to flowers.
EDIT: The Non-Grandfather Clause Addendum to the Cafemom Newcomers Group Naming Policy of May 2011:
No member of Cafemom Newcomers Group may claim exemption to the new naming policy for group members' children based upon enrollment in the group before the policy was adopted or nonexistence of the internet when the children were named.
Again, we here at Cafemom Newcomers Group apologize for any inconvenience it might incur, but these changes are applied evenly and across the board to every member in order to preserve the integrity and homogeneous tone of the group.
