Naming Multiples in Style!
It’s official: the Berries are the pros at naming multiples in style!
Proving that long baby names can still feel fresh and lively, there were three fantastic five-syllable girl names among the latest arrivals: Alexandrina, Annunciata and Emmanuella. Other long and lovely choices include Roxana, Serafina, Magdalene and Isidore.
We love seeing the creative nicknames our members are using, like Amelia “Ames” and Mabel “Billie”, as well as intriguing gender-bending names for both sexes, like Aaren for a girl and Florence for a boy.
You can find the full list of August arrivals below!
“We chose Karaya for my husband’s Taíno heritage, it means ‘moon’ in Taíno.”
“I am Jewish so we’re raising the kids Jewish, hence them all having a Hebrew name.”
“Her big siblings have been calling her ‘Nono’, which might stick just because it came so naturally to her brother and sister.”
“Alexandrina is the real first name of Queen Victoria. This was inspired by a Berry who suggested Alexandra to us. Now Alexandra isn’t a name I love, but Alexandrina is another level. So much love for the royal family and as Queens’ names go, we don’t think our daughter could do much better than this.”
“Thank you for all of the help deciding on her name and the support!”
“Thank you so so much to all of the Berries who helped with opinions and suggestions and got us to the final name which wouldn’t have been considered otherwise!”
“Husband and I are both Italian-American and love old school, tradition Italian names (clearly). All three of the kids have a mix of family names as well as just names that we love generally.”
“I decided to stick with our flower theme and picked Neve to offset the other two sisters. I didn’t want something too feminine that would make Afton feel left out, and I tend to go for less common names. Irish name Neve was the perfect compromise.”
“Magdalene is from Mary Magdalene, who in my mind is one of the more misunderstood and certainly more interesting women in the bible. We are Church of England family and whilst we aren’t christening our kids (they can make up there own minds when their old enough), I love the name Magdalene as it’s synonymous with the biblical figure.”
“Rudolph is my surname. We considered it as a first name too (nn Rudy) but ultimately thought that might be too much. My husband and I don’t care for double-barrelled surnames, so decided to keep my name in the family by making it a middle name for our child(ren).”
“Thanks to all the Berries for helping us pick the perfect name for our third boy! I struggled up to the end to find the perfect fit… grateful for your help!”
“We named him Isidore (after my great-great-grandfather but mostly because I fell in love with this name) Florence (after my great grandmother Frida whom sadly no one was named after before him because good F names are hard to find)”
Our warmest congratulations to all of the proud new parents!
