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):

Girl/Girl

Daphne Ramona and Luella Maeve

Hazel Sofia and Olive Eloise

Boy/Boy

Amyas Joseph and Noah Gabriel

Girl/Boy

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

Yes, babyberries! Thank you for the report, a lot of wonderful names! I like almost every name from the list but these are just breathtaking:
Girls:
Daphne Ramona – newly beloved Daphne + retro-chick Ramona = great
Cornelia Hermione Winter – stunning mix of vintage, unusual and word names, love it
Daisy Madeleine – both vintage and 21 century-sh in one, so pretty
Happy Cordelia – brave and beautiful
Juniper Luelle – unusual but familiar and I like siblings’ names
Verity Sakura – lovely to see Verity used, it’s gorgeous
Boys:
Atticus Leo – I like how short and cool Leo compliments Atticus
Clark Joseph – how wonderful I feel to see Clark, yay!
Dimitri David – both names are familiar in US, UK and Russia and I like the same initials
Hawthorne Oliver – brave and cool
Jude Wilder – like how “wild” it sounds
William Balthazar – just wow.

Why didn’t Kanye and Kim discover Nameberry? This list shows a lot of good taste and definitively very on trend. With this understated distinctiveness, the names are not posturing outre nor overused redundancies. I love this site since the mommy mafia and fierce fathers wouldn’t stand for daughters being named Chablis or bearing creatively dubbed sons that rhymed with Aidan-Hayden-Jayden. Despite the likelihood of an overly retread classic for a first name (Team George if it’s a boy!), I secretly hope Kate and Will at least glance at our forums and list when it comes to middle names. They’ll resurrect the names of some poor dead relatives but I hope they dust deeper and choose one that isn’t so blindingly obvious (at least try for a variation of Diana and not be so literal).

I’m very impressed with the new list. So many names that I like.

I love these blog posts! Congrats to all the new baby berries and their namers… I mean, parents. 🙂 I love so many of the names that I could not choose just one. I’m happy to see Agatha/Agnes/Augusta all used because I love them and feel like they sometimes get a bad “old lady” rap. Verity and Saskia are favorites, too, along with Daphne, Greta, and Cordelia. And hats off to Persephone’s parents. That is one that I love but was too much of a wimp to use.

Jennisu Says:

What a beautiful list of names! Just wanted to mention my baby girl, Rosalie June 🙂 born may 7th, little sister to Maxson Dean. I had lots of help from the name berries!

gabbygrace1915 Says:

Wow! Congrats to the new parents, on both having a baby, and wonderfully naming their new bundles of joy! Even though they are all lovely my favorites are:
Claire Elizabeth
Daisy Madeleine
Eloise Ruby
Greta Kathleen (it makes me so happy to see Greta being used, it is definitely under appreciated)
Kate Amelia
Margo Paige (Margo is a huge love of mine, but never ends up on my tops list, maybe I should fix that)

Arthur Redding
Augustus Zain
Calvin Jude (I’m obsessed with Calvin and Hobbes, so this gets a very big thumbs up from me)
Flynn Thomas
Gideon Wesley
Julian Avery
Pierce Edmond
William Balthazar

Honorable Mentions for siblings:
Benjamin Philip
Reid Matthew
Logan Reid
Amelie Clare
Rosamund Hazel
Mia Isabel
Arlo Tobin
Annabelle Rose
William Ray
Eva Natalie
Charlotte Noelle
Sullivan Henry

I kind of wish that everyone would find nameberry so all children would be this well named!

@jennisu–Rosalie June has been added to the list. Congrats!

Mclevine Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 9:31 am

Wow, fabulous list! Thank you, Linda! I agree with @BasicSand, if more people knew about NB, there will be more gorgeous names around.
From this blog Cornelia Hermione Winter and Skandar Leonidas Wilde are my favorites. 😉
If don’t count my daughter’s name(and I am Cornelia’s mama), Helena Marguerite is my #1 from girls.
After seeing the list I can say again I am really delighted we went with Cornelia – it’s much less popular even on Nameberry and I love Nelly, her spunky nickname.

Wonderful list! Just a slight correction. My daughters name is Aniella Juniper, not Jupiter. Thanks to all the berries who helped me name my little Ella June 🙂

This is a beautiful list. How I wish these were all real babies! I especially love these:

Coralie Esme Fleur
Cornelia Hermione Winter
Persephone Elysia Willow
Verity Sakura
Grover Matteo (how did I miss this one??)
Hawthorne Oliver
Truman Anthony
William Balthazar

Arthur Redding should not be on this list. The user who posted that birth announcement was proven fake. What’s worse, “Arthur’s” pictures were stolen from a mothering blog.

linda Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 12:03 pm

OK, thanks–Arthur Redding has been removed.

loisvs Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 12:09 pm

I adore Hawthorne Oliver with siblings Wolfgang and Persephone! All such bold choices, and curious about the other two’s middles…

Wolfgang is a family name that is probably not usable for us (too bold for DH but also not necessarily the namesake we want to honor), but I LOVE to see it on others.

stampey Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 12:51 pm

Such a great bunch of names!!

I never got around to posting our news- twins, what can you do?

In early June we welcomed Eamon Alasdair and Imogen Grace, joining big sister Bronwen Eleanor.

linda Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 12:59 pm

stampey–I can add your beautifully named twins now. Congrats!

iwillpraise Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 1:03 pm

Absolutely adorable: Duncan, Kit (m), Evie ~also the use of Lavinia, Ramona, Wren for middles

Georgiana Pearl
Elowen Audrey – such a lovely combo. somehow it reminds me of my love of songbirds
Danica Grace/ Luca Michael – love these individually and as a sibset
Sadie Elise

Stunning sibsets:
~Nola Valerie, twin of Rory Everett, sister of Arlo Tobin
~Dimitri David, brother of Eva Natalie
~Juniper Luelle, sister of Astoria Lark, Matteo Fox and Reverie Anwen – especially Astoria Lark and Matteo Fox!
~older brothers named, William Scott Wiley and Griffin Oliver, must also be mentioned. Eye-catching and indeed handsome!

Grover Matteo is very similar to previous announcement – Benton Grover. How often do you hear of Grover? Sigh *heart-melt*

HuLo Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 1:06 pm

GigiGibbons Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Why is this saying comment by JEMama instead of Gigigibbons? I’m signed as Gigigibbons. Weird.

Anyhow, the spelling of two of Gemma Hermione’s siblings were slightly misspelled.

Aiden should be Aidan.
Isabel should be Isobel.

GigiGibbons Says:

July 3rd, 2013 at 7:54 pm

Nevermind, it went back to Gigigibbons the second I posted. 🙂

I love Verity Sakura–cause I have a Sakura too. 🙂

Yay Persephone! I’ve oft been tempted to use that, but went for Cora instead. (Kore…Persephone)

sibling name I love–Marilla! I adore the name Marilla!!

katiebaby Says:

July 4th, 2013 at 11:32 pm

Wow, there are some gorgeous names! Not that it matters, but just want to clarify that Archer Cole is the sibling of Scarlett Frances & not Cordelia Sylvia Snow. Thanks!

My beautiful Magnolia-Rose is out of hospital after 1 month. So relieved and was tounched when I founs her name with a special “longest name” mention. Couldn’t be a happier mummy right now.

Yreynolds Says:

August 4th, 2013 at 6:02 pm

Hawthorne is one of the names on my very short boys names list. I’ve gotten mixed reviews from “that’s awesome” to “are you crazy!” We are in love with it, however, and if this baby (gender unknown) is a boy, his name will likely be Hawthorne. I’m due in 5 wks, so we’ll find out soon enough.

mariahsweet Says:

September 5th, 2013 at 2:16 am

I had Penelope Jane on my list, too! There’s something about those two names, so charming together.

SJPAU Says:
