Barbie’s surname isn’t Doll!

I never imagined that an iconic toy such as Barbie would have a proper name, but apparently she does; it is Barbara Millicent Roberts. If you’re interested Ken’s full name is Ken Carson. As far as I can tell, Barbie’s British rival Sindy has taken a more iconic approach like that favoured by Madonna as she wishes to be known by first name only and doesn’t seem to have a surname!

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
