New(ish) mum Samantha Dooey-Miles is charting her life in doodles. This week, she’s tackling the hot topic of names – mainly hers.

When picking your child’s name there are endless discussions. Does it sound right with your surname? Is it bulletproof from being turned into a humiliating nickname? Are you sure you never knew anyone annoying who was called that?

What never came up was that the name I was picking for the baby, was going to replace mine too.
