Septima is definitely in the clunky yet cool category. I think it's so cute! 7 is the number of perfection of course. :)

I really want to like Septima and Septimus but the first couple syllables make me think of "septic" which is not a nice association :/

Funny, though, how on Septimus there is a very thorough and non-offensive description.

In 2006, only 0.5 percent (that's half of one percent) of families had seven or more children, vs. 6 percent in 1976: see here http://www.nytimes.com/2009... In 1900, the average family had 3.5 children -- you have to go all the way back to 1800 to find the average family in the US with seven children: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/pre...

So yes, we are saying this in a smart-alecky way, but we are stating historical fact on the trajectory of family size, not stating that big families are bad or that literally nobody has big families any more.

I don't really want children. But if I were in better condition and this was a perfect world, I'd have many. Too young to think about that now, though. :)

It used to be hugely common to have a ton of children before birth control. It's not very common to have seven or more kids today (in the US at least). I think the writer was just playing off of that historical shift. I don't think that they as an adult person believe that there are no seven person families today. Septima literally means seventh, so they're not even really saying it's a bad name either. :P

Sounds like an illness, not a name

I agree, my family currently has 6 kids. I know lots of families with more than 7 kids, including 2 families with 12 and 13 kids!

The description is very rude: "Name for a seventh child, back when people had them". Really?! Are you really saying people don't have seven or more children anymore?
