Babyberry Roundup: The fourth quarterly report of 2012

And now we come to the 2012 final quarter round-up of the names that Berries have actually chosen after all their various options were considered and discussed, on our forums and in the outside world.  And once again, it’s a gorgeous group, with many great first and middle combos and equally intriguing sibsets.

The most popular choices reported on the Birth Announcement forums between October 1st and December 31st were: Violet (3), Audrey (2), Beatrix (2), Eleanor (2), Eva (2), Matilda (2), Archer (2), Felix (2), Henry (2), and Jonah (2).
