August Baby Names: Newest Berry Announcements
By Linda Rosenkrantz
There were two sets of twins among the August baby names announced on the Forums this month, both beautifully balanced:
“Gemma Gray was a very close second, but Carolina was the most popular choice both in our nameberry poll and with extended family, It also holds more sentimental value and another connection to her great-grandmother, who is the namesake for our middle choice of Gray.”
“We named her after two heroines of ours.”
“We love how it’s a strong name, to go along with her sisters’ names. Louise is a family name on my wife’s side, and Victoria is from my side of the family; my father’s mother’s name was Victoria and it’s my middle name as well.”
“All our daughters will have M names.”
“Amos is a name we both love, and it’s also the name of my husband’s great-grandfather.”
“We took several hours to decide between our final two of Edmund and Murray, but the historical and literary connections to Edmund were too good for me to pass up. Liam is after my late father, William.”
“We have had some difficulties with people pronouncing his name wrong—shee-ah, but are still very happy with our choice of something unique but not outrageous.”
“Silas means “woods, forest” or “man of the forest” and honors my father who is an avid outdoorsman. Kincaid is the narrator of ‘The Brothers K’ by David James Duncan. It is both my husband’s and my favorite book.”
So do you have a favorite among these choices? Best first and middle combo? Favorite sibset?

Calvin Andrew is my favorite combination. Heather (a sibling of another child on the list) is one of the names I’m liking lately.
