By Linda Rosenkrantz

The first month of 2016 brought the usual bountiful bunch of beautifully named  babies to the Nameberry community, including creative first and middle combos and sibsets and, this month, some particularly interesting backstories.

January brought one pair of boy-girl twins–the classic Nora Elizabeth and Everett William.

There were two twice-picked choices: Zelda and Jasper.

Most innovative names: Tessamine and Edelweiss

And here’s the full list:

December birth announcements

By Linda Rosenkrantz

Here we are with the last Babyberry Report of the year!

No multiples this month, but one name was used twice: Leo. Once again, several nature/word names found in middle place—Sparrow, Iris, Rose, Linnea—as well as some interesting moms’ maiden names—Francois, Tam and Buchanan.

We’re especially happy to include the announcements of two of our own Berry Juice contributors—Dantea’s Amelia Lorien Sophia and Josh (‘beardedberry’) Murray’s Zelda Louise.

Some particularly delicious babyberry names last month–the doubly golden Aurelia Marigold, a Juniper and a Juno, an Atlas and an Axel, two middle-place Magnolias, first and middle name Shepherds, and a new critter name– Owl.

There were two pair of twins: Adrienne Joelle and Carson Ned; and boys Samuel David and Joel Harner.

We’d like to offer special congrats to one of our favorite guest bloggers, Brooke Cussans, on the birth of Atlas Bram!

One set of twins in November: the lovely Azure Olivia and India Miriam.

Also of note: two Olives and an Olivet,, and the fact that Pearl seems to be becoming a middle name du jour.

Here’s the complete rundown.

Iona Dorothy and Willow Jemima

Dexter Frans Yaniv and Lennox Noam Juhani

And we can’t help noting the even greater than usual profusion of floral and other nature names among these newbies and their sibs—Amaryllis, Marigold, Willow, Posey, Juniper…also nice to see the return of Jemima and Jethro.

Here is the full list of announcements posted on the forum in September.
