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).
Tomorrow we’ll be taking a look at the whole year’s results—the most widely used first and middle names, as well as all the triplet and twin name choices.

Wow, some amazing names on here. Congrats to all of the parents. My favourite sibset has to be Briar Hawthorne,Lillian Evangeline and Violet Abigale. Love Briar for a boy and I’m glad I’m not the only one.

Always interesting! Does anyone know if this roundup just includes US parents? I put our son’s name on the birth announcement forum and it didn’t appear, we’re in Australia.

Some really stunning names here. My favorite sibset is Cecily Margaret, Juliet Adelaide, Elias Octavian and Helena Daphne. WOW.

Funny how names comeback around, I noticed one of the boys has a sister named Lola May, which is my grandmother’s name!

Cbuxton, no, it’s all Nameberry parents. Please send it to me at email@example.com and I will be sure to add it — must be an oversight! Sorry!

Eleanor, Imogen, Beatrice, and Leopold?!?!?
= Best Sibset!
Anyone brave enough to use Leopold is a win in my book! (And Imogen! <3)

Amabel Artemis and Henry Atlas are my favorites for each gender, with Amabel’s sibset being my favorite.
My favorite twin names have to be Eleanor Ivy & Matilda Snow!

Eleanor Ivy and Matilda Snow is gorgeous! One of the best twin names I’ve ever seen.
Avery Blair- so glad someone used it on a boy
I wish Nameberry had been around when I was born- back in the late ’90s. Then, maybe my parents could have picked a wonderful name like these!

My favorite Twin sets:
Lily Charlotte Grace and Emma Scarlett Paige
*I Love the 4 letter first names, the matching (but not) middle names with the same sound and “tte” ending.
Eleanor Ivy and Matilda Snow
*these 2 just blew me away. I remember sharing them with my sister when they popped up on Facebook.
So many of my current faves are on this list. 🙂
I liked so many of these sib sets and names that I actually posted this whole blog to Facebook – a first for me.

Love Briar Hawthorne!! So happy to see it being used on boys!

I’d love to add the birth of my son
William North born October 11, 2012. 🙂

There are so many amazing names on this list! I found Felix Apollo to be quite stunning.
on January 2nd, 2013 at 7:28 pm
I’m really impressed! I don’t see a single manly name on the girls side and the boys side is a really good mix!
on January 2nd, 2013 at 7:52 pm
I want twins named Ramona & Bernadette! Amazing!
on January 2nd, 2013 at 8:46 pm
Two uses of Atlas as a middle and I know of a newborn with it as a first–it seems like this name came out of nowhere. Is there a cultural reference I’m missing?
on January 3rd, 2013 at 12:17 am
Love the list. Nameberry parents definitely have got style.

Hello to the new Beatrix moms! My Bea loves her name (or at least she responds to it, which at age 1, I’ll take as loving it), and I hope that yours does, too.
Also, Eleanor Ivy and Matilda Snow are so brilliant that my stomach fluttered when I read them.
There are too many other great ones to list them all, but Lucy Adelaide and Kit as a boy nickname get a thumbs up from me.
And to the above poster… I wonder if the movie Atlas Shrugged had something to do with it? That’s the only recent Atlas reference that I can think of. Even if people weren’t into the movie, it might have brought the name more into popular consciousness.

Karina Juniette is my beautiful niece! Such a great name.
on January 6th, 2013 at 8:42 pm
Amabel Artemis, Felix Apollo, Milena Echo & Rosalind Iseult
Cecily Margaret, Juliet Adelaide, Elias Octavian & Helena Daphne
Eleanor Marguerite, Imogen, Beatrice & Leopold
Rosamund Gloria, Florence Marlena & Dorothy Vera

Really loving the Avery Blair and Mackinley Alex brothers. Cainyn isn’t my style but Gray(e) is an excellent mn. I’m truly enjoying a lot of these names.
on January 29th, 2013 at 12:22 pm
Great names everyone! Don’t see my little one’s name on here so want to add Cora Olive to the list, sister to Milo Thomas.
on January 30th, 2013 at 1:22 pm
I will sneak her into the first 2013 report–I only go by names listed in the Baby Announcement forum
on February 26th, 2013 at 3:13 pm
Love the names! My little one was left out, though. Just wanted to add Susanna Lake to the list. 🙂
on March 1st, 2013 at 2:07 am
I will add her to the next batch.

Gorgeous names! My top five for each gender:
