Read the entire traditional children's story. All sorts of fanciful names derived from baby talk are used as proper names to entertain the children.

This story is, in fact, the origin of the saying "The sky is falling!", which is what we sometimes say to describe a person quick to jump to conclusions and panic for no reason when the slightest thing goes wrong.
