Baby names vs dog names

Postby Kay » Fri 5 Aug 2016 06:24 GMT

The Guardian has a quiz to see if you can tell the difference between popular baby names and popular dog names. I scored 7/10, more by luck than judgement. It's amazing what people call their kids these days.

If you've got five minutes to spare on doing something mindless, why not have a go?

I only managed 6/10 but then although I know a lot of dogs I don't know any babies.

Talking of quizzes, I did this one in the Radio Times and it told me that I was born to play the Dowager Countess in Downton Abbey!! :roll:

I managed 8/10 - I came unstuck on the last two.

To be honest, I'm surprised I did so well. I wonder if I'd have done any better if it had been UK-based rather than Aussie?

As for David's "Born to play..." quiz, I turned out as The Doctor. Which is brilliant, especially if I can be Tom Baker. :-D

did the quiz - if only on most of the questions there was a "none of the above", but end result..The Doctor

"You're quirky, charming and bold. You make friends easily and always hang on to them. You've got a keen sense of adventure and nothing fazes you, but you can be a little hard to pin down sometimes. "

at best 50% correct
