Newest Babyberries: 2nd Quarterly Report of 2013

Newest Babyberries: 2nd Quarterly Report of 2013

by Linda Rosenkrantz

June has come to a close and with it the end of the year’s second quarter, meaning it’s time for our report on the names chosen for their Spring babies by Berries in April, May and June, as reported in the Forums.  As always, the baby names form a perfect microcosm of Nameberry style— from solid classics like Claire and Charles to vintage faves Cordelia and Cornelia to a range of highly original picks, including a girl named Happy.  There are also some great first-middle name combos and terrific twin and other sibsets.

This time around there were reports of seven sets of twins (as compared with last quarter’s ten):


Daphne Ramona and Luella Maeve

Hazel Sofia and Olive Eloise


Amyas Joseph and Noah Gabriel


Danica Grace and Luca Michael

Gabriella Jo and Garrett William

Imogen Grace and Eamon Alexander

Nola Valerie and Rory Everett

In terms of popularity there were two babies each named Beatrice, Daphne, Elowen, Violet, Emmett, Felix, Jude, Milo, Oliver, Rhys, and Sullivan. Unless you want to count Amias and Amyas as doubles.

Most unusual middle: Fjord

Most popular first initial for girls: E, for boys: A

Longest  name: MagnoliaRose Coimeah Augusta
