Recently I changed my hair pretty drastically, and I’m very happy with the results. As always, whenever a new subject enters my mind, I have to find a way to connect it with names! So today’s post is about hair-related names.

Samson and Delilah

Many of us already know the Biblical story – super strong man falls for femme fatale, and femme fatale shaves his head, sapping him of his strength. I like this Wikipedia quote about Samson: “Samson had two vulnerabilities—his attraction to untrustworthy women and his hair, without which he was powerless.” Delilah has rocketed in popularity in recent years, thanks to Tom Jones and the Plain White T’s. Samson has only been used in the last few decades, as an alternative to ever-popular Samuel. Both names have more or less distanced themselves from their hairy origins, and neither would surprise too many people today.

Best Celebrity Twin Baby Names

One of the most popular questions to discuss at Nameberry is this: what would you name twins?

It’s the kind of challenge Berries love, and for good reasons. Double the number of names to choose! A chance to link two names in some subtle – or maybe not-so-subtle – way. With both of my pregnancies, I had a list of boy names, girl names – and twin names, which didn’t necessarily duplicate the first two lists.

Plenty of celebrity parents have faced this naming challenge. The latest high profile parents seeing double are The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood and his new wife Sally Humphreys. The rock ‘n’ roll royals recently welcomed twin daughters. They kept it simple, opting for classic, feminine names without a lot of frills.

In honor of their arrival, let’s take a look at nine sets of celebrity multiples, and see if we can learn anything from their parents’ baby name choices.

This week, Soleil Moon Frye and Jason Goldberg welcomed baby number four. It’s no surprise that the family chose a bold, unexpected baby name for their new arrival. Older daughters are Poet Sienna Rose and Jagger Joseph Blue, and they’re also parents to son Lyric Sonny Roads. Their new addition is son Story. We’re still waiting to learn his middle names, but here’s betting that it’s another daring combination.
