Category: sister names
The theme of the week has been popular names — Nameberry’s most popular choices for the first half of the year.
To keep the party going, we thought we’d round off the publication of the three lists — our top 100 girls’ names, top 100 boys’ names, and top 20 unisex names — by asking you to create your perfect and perfectly-named family using your favorite names from the three lists.
If you’re feeling really ambitious, include middle names, but only from our 2013 most-popular lists!
Have fun. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Commission artist Jordan Grace Owens to create a customized set of paper dolls like the ones pictured here based on your family. So fabulous!!
Think you could do better? I bet you do!
Naming all-girl quintuplets was one of my formative name nerd fantasies, inspired by the Dionne quintuplets of Canada, the first set of surviving quints and the only set of identical quints ever to survive, according to this list of quint facts.
Lots of berries agree, as evidenced by the more than 500 pages of responses in our forums to the all-girl quintuplet name challenge.
Now let’s bring this name game to center stage. What would YOU name a set of girl quintuplets? (Don‘t worry, we’ll tackle boys’ names next week.)
It’s one of our longest-running forums, at 200+ pages and counting: Name a sibset you know.
On the forums it’s a game where one person names a sibset they know and the next person takes one of the names from that sibset and uses it in a different sibset they know. Go ahead and play it, it’s fun.
So for this question of the week, we’re going to spin the challenge a bit differently and ask, What’s the best sibset — as in group of sibling names — you know?
It’s a name nerd’s fantasy: Naming twin girls.
You want two girls’ names that are compatible yet distinct, that are consistent in style and image and gender identity yet sound no more alike than the names of sisters.
The most popular names for girl twins range from the top of the charts Olivia and Sophia to cutesy pairs such as Faith and Hope or Heaven and Neveah to sound-alikes Ella and Emma. But we know you can do better than that.
I always love the slightly off-kilter (from the American perspective) British baby names plus the eccentric string of middle names. But including the names of brothers and sisters adds an extra dimension of style interest.
Counting first children not mentioned here too, trend watchers will want to note the names Elodie, Emilia, Florence, Isla, and Jemima for girls, and Barnaby, Frederick, Hugo, Montgomery, and Willoughby for boys. Also, diminutives such as Jack and Annie as not only full first names but middle names.
Recent British baby names and their siblings include:
