November babyberries

By Linda Rosenkrantz

There was a wide variety in the babyberry choices of the past month, from classics like Arthur and Alfred and Louisa to the adventurous Sequoia, Arrow and Jubilee. And there were some especially captivating name stories, such as those behind Scout (another shout-out to To Kill a Mockingbird),  Arthur Genki, and Fawn, as well as the many cool first and middle combos and sibsets we’ve come to expect.

The one repeated name this month is the lovely Cornish appellation Elowen—as in Elowen Claire and Elowen Pearl.

birth announcement

By Linda Rosenkrantz

It’s time for the always gratifying task of gathering up the birth announcements of the month, and September’s harvest did not disappoint, with an abundance of great choices, creative first and middle combos and interesting sibsets.

Outstanding among the girls, there is the floral first name Zinnia and both Darling and Lova (based on a typo for Love) as middles. The boys’ list includes the imposing Ignatius and the hero-name Beckham, as well as distinctive middle names Wellington and Adair. And one girl inherited her dad’s name, while a boy got his father’s name in reverse.

birth-5-14

By Linda Rosenkrantz

At the risk of repeating myself, May was once again a fantastic month for babyberry naming, with yet another wide variety of creative choices. The girls included a poetic Poet and vintage revivals Elsie and Hetty, a boyish Wylie, novel nickname Livvy, and floral middles Blossom and Bluebell. Among the many cool sibsets are Magnolia and Moon; and Ivan, Vivienne and Evelyn (love those v’s!).  And so nice to see the prevalence of family homages.

There was one set of twins this month, the beautifully named boy-girl pair Casper William Carnegie and Ramona Elizabeth Islay, each with one particularly meaningful middle.
