February Babyberry Announcements: Lachlan, Lennox & Luca
By Linda Rosenkrantz
February—a short month, so not as quite as many great babyberry announcements as usual, but what they lack in number they make up for in their full share of originality and charm, including first names, first and middle combos and sibsets.
There are two sets of all-boy twins this month:
Here, the full list of February baby names reported by our Berries:
“We received so many helpful responses about renaming our daughter Florence Theodora…(she) is now called Alba Florence)…I read The Time Traveler’s Wife a few years ago.. A few nights ago I watched the film…and I was struck by the name. This coincided with a Berry suggesting the name..Not to mention Albus Dumbledore—one of my all time literary heroes. The Harry Potter connection doesn’t put me off one bit, being that I grew up with the books as my escapism. And of course, the meaning of ‘dawn’ in Spanish conjures a gentle sense of hope and optimism—the start of a new day. Finally, its ties to Great Britain through… Albion being the name of England. As a somewhat displaced English woman living in Australia, this feels like a nice subtle connection to my homeland.”
“Her first name is one we love and her mn is to honor my grandfather, Frank. We plan to enunciate the “J” in Jacinta with full force and not the “h” or “huh” sound. My husband has been so thrilled since her birth..has actually been singing her name. Her nn will be Jaycee.”
“He is named after my father.”
“It’s a name that reminds me of lakes and forests and my husband whose career is devoted to the outdoors..Errol is my dad and brother’s middle name. Justin is my brother-in-law’s name who was a Marine and gave his life in Iraq. It was very important for my husband to honor his brother.”
“When the doctor announced Baby A was a boy, I knew he was a Theo. When I saw him for the first time, that just settled it. Baby B was born and boy oh boy, did we get a surprise—another boy! We had been expecting (and prepared for!) a little girl, but we are so happy that we have two healthy and happy sons…who we will call Theo and Cole.”
“…We thought it quite appropriate with Quade meaning fourth born!”

I love the combo Theodore Solomon! So handsome!

Sylvie, Jacinta, Theodore, and Lachlan are my favorites. I love the story behind Alba as well!!

Dashiell Colm and Sterling Joel
Jacinta Francine (perfection!)
Sylvie Claire, sister of Cordelia June and Eloise Pearl (WOW, what a dream of a sibset — three of my all time favorite names!)
Desmond Marshall James
There are two sibsets on this list that I think work splendidly, though neither are quite my taste: Nestor Grant, Cleo Danica, and Misha Oliver; and Quade Huxley, Flynn, Tate, and Rafferty.

Congrats to all of the February babies! 🙂
Such a lovely set of names here.
My favorites from the boys are, Lennox Santiago and Luca Scott. From the girls my absolute favorite is Sylvie Claire.

So many lovely names! Love Alba, Annabelle, Maia and Sylvie (such a wonderfully named sibset too!) for the girls and Dashiell & Sterling, Lachlan and Leo for the boys. And Theodore and Nicholas are so handsome together was well.

Quade Huxley is fabulous! I love both names
on March 3rd, 2015 at 7:06 am
Sylvie Claire and her sisters have stolen my heart! I adore both Sylvia and Sylvie, but they are both very rare where I live. It is so refreshing to see it used. The same goes for the much-neglected Alma.
Annabelle Claire is also gorgeous, although I prefer the less-popular spelling of Annabel.
I’m a tad worried about Claire becoming a go-to middle name. My husband and I are strongly considering Claire for a middle name if we are ever blessed with a baby girl.

Ah, I love Sterling and am really glad to see it used. Theodore Solomon is my favourite combo, but his brother’s name is very handsome, too. My favourite from the girls is Alba, which is just gorgeous!

I adore Nestor Grant! ♥ and many others, but this one really jumps out at me.
on March 3rd, 2015 at 10:20 am
So many lovely names! Theodore Solomon is such an amazing combination.
Alba is also the Scottish Gaelic name for Scotland. It’s pronounce like Ala-buh (the b is very short and sometimes sounds like a p)

Jacinta Francine and Lennox Santiago are my favorites. Uncommon but familiar names made brand new.
on March 3rd, 2015 at 12:37 pm
Congrats to all these new moms!
All the names are great, but my favorites are Sylvie Claire and Leo Bastien.
on March 3rd, 2015 at 1:32 pm
Quade Huxley is THE most perfect name ever!
on March 3rd, 2015 at 4:15 pm
Dashiell Colm and Sterling Cole. Love the first names there! Also love the nicknames Theo and Cole for the other set of twins! Love the first names Lennox and Leo and and also like Luca Scott! For girls, I love Sylvie Claire, Annabelle Claire, and Emma-Rose Clementine!

Alice Rhiannon! It’s stunning!
Lennox Santiago is a striking mix 🙂

They’re all beautiful but I’m never let down when it comes to berries naming twins! Cole & Theo and Dashiell & Sterling. Perfect choices!

Some beauties this month as usual. Top three for each gender (since it’s a short month):
I think you might have missed a few announcements (please correct me if I’m wrong):
Finley Isabel, sister of Jessilyn Tyler and Dylan Brigid
Iris Amelia, sister of Eden Paige
Cassius Fox Arrow, brother of Rowan Jane
I was disappointed not to see rowangreeneyes’s baby boy, Cassius Fox Arrow, on this list as we deliberately announced him in the February births so he would appear in February’s babyberries.

My favorite girls name has to be Alba Florence, it’s so classy! My favorite boys name is Luca Scott;I’ve always liked those names! On a different note, my least favorites were Jacinta Francine and Dashiell.
