Name the All-Boy Quints!

boyquints

All-boy quintuplets are very rare, so naming them is one of those name nerd fantasies that is unlikely ever to come true.

But we can dream, can’t we?

Over in our forums, there are nearly 500 pages of responses to the name game challenge to name a set of all-boy quints.

For further inspiration, here’s a list of all quintuplets born in the world, at least as of last year. An all-boy set in Pennsylvania has the excellent names of Ian, Wesley, Sawyer, Micah and Travis. Alabama‘s Guttensohn quints, pictured here, are named the compatible Hunter, Parker, Tanner, Taylor, and Mason.

Twin Names, A to Z

twinsnew

A while back, we asked you to list your favorite names, one for a girl and one for a boy, from A to Z.

Now we’re inviting you to reprise that exercise, but with a pair of twin names for each letter.

You are welcome to mix it up: some girl-girl twin names, some boy pairs, and some girl-boy mixes.  Create pairs with clever matching themes or flow, if that’s your preference, or choices that are very distinct from one another and are connected mainly by their first initial.

The only rule is that each pair of twin names start with the same first letter.

So your list might read:

Alice & Arthur

Beatrice & Bridget

Cassius & Cicero

…..and so on.

Your turn!
