Hot off the press–here’s our round-up of the newest babyberries who were entered on the Nameberry Birth Announcement forum in the month of November, 2013– along with some of the more illuminating comments by their parents.

No multiples this month, and no repeated names, but more than the usual quota of imaginative choices, awesome first and middle name combos, and great sibsets.

In November, a preponderance of M-starting girls and A-starting boys, and such stand-out little guys as Rowdy, Huckleberry and Job.

Since our last Quarterly Report grew to be so huge and unwieldy, with its unfortunate share of troll challenges, we’ve decided to try sectioning it into more manageable monthly reports instead.  Remember that these are the names reported on the Nameberry Birth Announcement forum–not necessarily born–during the month of October, and only to Berries–not including nephews, nieces or neighbors–no matter how adorably named they might be.

This time around we’ve added some comments by the original poster and other berries that we thought you would find interesting.

Just one set of twins to report: the lovely Vivienne Gray and Philippa Winter. And only one double listing–the glamorous girls’  name Greta.

Most unusual first: Oslo; Most unusual middle: Honesty

Girls

Alice Ann

Alicie Marie

Annika Rosealine, sister of Claudia Vivian

How has your name influenced your life?

An interesting discussion is going on in our forums about the real influence of a name.

But how has that played out with your own name, in your own life?

Wowza!

I was completely overwhelmed by the sheer quantity, gorgeousness and wild originality of the names reported in the Birth Announcement forums for this third quarter of the year, from July through the end of September.  So overwhelmed, in fact, that I’m dividing the results into two separate blogs—one for the girls and one for the boys.

Not surprisingly, with this large number of names, there were more duplicates than ever.  Perennial NB fave Charlotte along with Phoebe were chosen three times, while the girls’ names picked twice were Alice, Annabel, Arabella, Daisy, Daphne, ElodieFrancine, Ivy, Luna, Nora, Penelope, Rory and Vivienne.  

Most popular initial: A (surprise, surprise); most popular consonant initial: M

Most unusual middle name: Wildflower

Rae seems to be replacing Rose in the middle spot.
