SO and I bought our very own Elf On The Shelf tonight and are having trouble naming him. I'd love to hear your Elves names and how you came up with them. Any ideas would be super handy!
Here's the cute little guy:
Good lord! He's terrifying looking, poor fella.
I can almost feel his beady little eyes staring into me.
Name? I'unno... Spooky?
@Hyperventilate: Hahaha, I laughed aloud when I read your response. I think he's cute!
I love Elf on the Shelf! I don't have one (yet), but I love the ideas on Pinterest! Hmmm names, names.... Lorenzo?? Hahahaha! What kind of Elf do you want him to be?
Our elf on the shelf was never named... I'll have to ask my son what his name is tomorrow.
oh and I started making this: (just some ideas to keep the shelf elf creative)
@Hyperventilate: lmao!!! Is this what you do on Saturday nights?? LOVE IT!!
@tippy22: Trust me, when not-BF is deployed, I do a lot worse.
I once dressed our black lab up like a princess. And put socks on him.
@Hyperventilate: omg I love it. We're getting an elf on the shelf for my kiddo this year. I need to save this picture LOL
@HappilyEverAfter54: My God. I'm just thinking of how warped my kids brain would be if we made the elf look like it was active at night after looking at that Pinterest board. This may or may not be a good idea LOL.
20 minutes after we went to bed last night, SO sits up and says, "Keebler!!!" So, with an emphasis on cookies and a name I can live with: Keebler is the name of our Elf on the Shelf. He's obviously going to be a little kitchen dweller.
@Hyperventilate: That is so funny I saved it and intend on adding it to the back of our elf book.
@Omgbunnies: I hadnt thought of the kids part, probably because we dont have any. I guess we'll see how warped my brain gets coming up with elf ideas over the next (?) years!
@Hyperventilate: I think you'd like this article http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/so-heres-thing/2011/dec/7/elf-shelf-friend-or-jailhouse-snitch/
My friends let their kids name theirs...one is named Shelf. lol
I named mine Tebow...after Tim Tebow.
I guess I was hoping I'd wake up and Tim Tebow would be on my fireplace instead of a silly doll.
@Omgbunnies: my son believes the shelf elf is more real than Santa so we totally play it up LOL.
Oh and my son said the shelf elf's name is 'Pip Squeek'
@tippy22: Lorenzo! That is amazing!!
Flee! (Elf spelled backwards with an extra E!)
My sister--in-law just bought one... they named it 'Griswold', after the 'National Lampoon''s family.
@KateByDesign: That's really cute!
@brighteyedgirl: I saw that online for the '50 best elf names.' Thats a good one!
@HappilyEverAfter54: Pip Squeek is super cute!!
We used to have one and it was named Christopher Popkins. Lol.
My husband runs a blog about firearms. I sent him the link to the Elf on the Shelf website and suggested that we get one and name it Gunner.
My husband and I watch The League, one couple on the show got an elf on the shelf and asked their 6 yr old daughter what to name it. She said Kegel and they were like okaaaaaay? I don't have any suggestions, but I wouldn't recommend Kegel. hahaha
WHat on earth is an Elf on the Shelf? I saw a commercial for a movie for this yesterday, but I have never heard of this before. What's the deal?
@Asia: The elf sits on the shelf during the Christmas season, watches your kids and reports to Santa if they do anything bad. Santa is a very busy man, so the elvess help him with the inside scoop on who'se naughty/nice.
I see..... That's an ingenious marketing plan!
we named ours Shimmer but my fi's 4 year old calls it an "elk" instead of elf so that will probably be it's name
I have a friend with an elf name Elfonso and one with an elf named Elfis.
@MsPiggy: Christopher Popkins is the perfect perfect perfect elf name!
@LilacViolet: I actually just realized Elf on the shelf and Christopher Pop-in-kins(his actual name) are two different things! My sister just bought a Christopher Pop-in-kins for my nephew and it comes with a book and everything. Lol. My newphew LOVES looking for Chris every morning. Heres a pic of him(not my pic) Isn't he cute?!?
My 5 yo DS named our elf Walden. Very serious elf.
