Lauren writes:

Our two little fellows, Rex, 3, and Leo, 18 months, will have a little sister later this year.

Our Hungarian last name is rather challenging to spell and difficult to pronounce, so we like the idea of keeping her name easy to read and say.

I like shorter, feminine, vintage names like Rose, Polly, and Milly, while my husband seems to lean towards more traditional names like Emily and Elizabeth.

We both love names that can transition easily to cute nicknames like Cece, Coco, and Milly, although this isn’t a must.

Whew! Hope this little girl isn’t as high maintenance as we’re making her name!

Name Your Fantasy Triplets!

triplet names

We’ve named our ideal families.  We’ve taken a swing at naming girl twins and girl-boy pairs.

We’ve even, masters of naming that we are, named quintuplets!

And now, we’re asking you to name your ideal set of triplets — an easier enterprise in fantasy than it would be in reality!

What would your perfect triplet configuration be: all girls, all boys, or what kind of mix?  And what would your fantasy triplet names be?

New Babyberry Announcements for June

birth announcements June

By Linda Rosenkrantz

What a bountiful crop of beautifully named new babyberries this month!

First of all, one pair of girl-boy twins:

Holiday Kathryn and Hayes Nelsonalliterative but far from matchy-matchy.

The trend for nature-referenced middle names continues, with Fern, Iris, Bee, Rose, Snow, Fox (twice) and River all on board. A preponderance of vowel-starting names for girls, but only one—Oake—among the boys. And, as always lots of inventive and appealing first and middle name combos and sibsets. As well as some great backstories.

baby boy names

Jasmine writes:

My husband and I are expecting our second child this summer. We thought we had chosen the absolutely perfect name. It’s the name that we have been calling the baby for months. It just felt so right. 

The name is Henry. We already have an Oliver and thought they were both good, strong traditional names.  

So what’s the problem?

My father drowned in a boating accident when I was four. Obviously, I was too young to know the details. Imagine my shock when I told my mother we were naming the baby Henry, and she replied that my father’s accident happened in Frederick Henry Bay.

I am absolutely devastated.

The other name we considered was Charlie, but it doesn’t have the same feeling as Henry did. I keep scrolling through baby name lists and nothing stands out. 

Some say it’s a good sign to use the name. I’m not sure, and yet, we can’t find another name we love as much.

I hope you can help!

Name Sage: Naming Twin Boys!

McKenzie writes:

My husband and I are expecting our first babies in July. Yes, you read that correctly … BABIES! We are expecting twin boys!

We both love and agree on the name Oliver for one of the boys, but can’t agree on another name.

I like Bellamy, Berkeley, Zander, Elliot, and Sawyer. But my husband doesn’t. He likes Julian, Anthony, and Keegan.

So we are stuck! Any names that you could suggest would be extremely helpful!
