Name Your “Similar Names” Family

sibling names

A little while back our question of the week asked berries to name their own Name Ticker family, choosing only from names in the name ticker at any given moment. It was a big success and a lot of fun with some truly fascinating results.

So continuing on that theme, today we’re asking you to name a family using only the names found on the Similar Names page of any name you choose.

I was inspired to ask this question by the Similar Names page for Eulalia, here.   So many great choices!  I might create a family of two girls and two boys named Eulalia and Corisande, Booker and Cyrus.  Or I might go a bit more exotic and choose Aviva and Kamala, Dmitri and Vladimir.

Brother and Sister Names in the News

abby--sib--6-14

By Abby Sandel, Appellation Mountain

If naming your first child is a challenge, naming baby number two – and maybe three and four – can start to feel like a puzzle.  Should you repeat first initials?  Should everyone share the same first initial?  If your son’s name is a Top 20 standard, is it okay to give your daughter a name that’s never cracked the Top 1000?  How about honor names?  If your daughter is named after your grandmother, will his grandmother expect to be next?

There’s no right answer, but there is a right choice for every family.  This week, sibsets were in the baby name news – and on my mind.

Blame it on a trip to the zoo.  We’re lucky enough to live in the Land of Bao Bao, also known as Washington DC, home to the Smithsonian National Zoo.  As we crowded into the panda habitat the other morning, parents called their kids’ names.  Mostly Sophia, with Noah, Aiden, and Hayden tossed in for good measure.
