British baby names seem especially fascinating to our American sensibilities, familiar and exotic at the same time. Once every handful of months, I allow myself a visit to the Birth Announcements in the London Telegraph, the way one might ration such indulgences as a banana split or a day in bed with a good book. And each time I report back to the devoted berries, I try to take a different view of the Telegraph’s baby name offerings.

This time, the focus is sibsets: Groups of distinctly British and delightfully quirky names. While I hate to leave such delicious choices as Constanza Una Honoria or Reuben Clarence William behind — and look there!, I didn’t have to! — there’s something new to be gained by seeing these choices with their brother and sister names.
