Category: twin names
By Linda Rosenkrantz
February may be a short month, with somewhat fewer names than usual, but we’ve still had a full complement of beautifully-named Babyberries reported on the Birth Announcement forum.
We’re always particularly on the lookout for twins, and this month there were two sets, one boy-girl and one boy-boy:
It was a month that brought girls named Brynn and Wynne, a Margo and a Marguerite, the return of Enid and Ezeriah, and in middle place Mahogany, Job and Jerome. ‘E’ was the most prominent vowel starter and ‘M’ the standout consonant.
Here are the names, with their sibs, and some explanatory comments.

June has come to a close and with it the end of the year’s second quarter, meaning it’s time for our report on the names chosen for their Spring babies by Berries in April, May and June, as reported in the Forums. As always, the baby names form a perfect microcosm of Nameberry style— from solid classics like Claire and Charles to vintage faves Cordelia and Cornelia to a range of highly original picks, including a girl named Happy. There are also some great first-middle name combos and terrific twin and other sibsets.
This time around there were reports of seven sets of twins (as compared with last quarter’s ten):
Every three months, when we prepare these quarterly reports, we’re knocked out by the endlessly creative variety of choices made (and I’m sure there are lots more that didn’t make it into the Birth Announcement Forum), the felicitous first and middle name combos and the great twin and other sibsets.
This time around there are reports of ten sets of twins:
A while back, we asked you to list your favorite names, one for a girl and one for a boy, from A to Z.
Now we’re inviting you to reprise that exercise, but with a pair of twin names for each letter.
You are welcome to mix it up: some girl-girl twin names, some boy pairs, and some girl-boy mixes. Create pairs with clever matching themes or flow, if that’s your preference, or choices that are very distinct from one another and are connected mainly by their first initial.
The only rule is that each pair of twin names start with the same first letter.
So your list might read:
…..and so on.
