New Babyberries Announced in August
By Linda Rosenkrantz
The boys have it this month on Nameberry, with male births far outnumbering the girl baby announcements in August.
In this crop of August baby names we had two pairs of boy twins, the handsomely named Cruz Patrick and Kane Fredrick, and Declan Zurich Rhodes and Phineas Keegan. Especially love Zurich as a new place name middle idea (with a nice story behind it.)
“Like Margot, we chose Delphine’s first name because we loved the sound of it and liked that it was not too poplar but not unheard of….a middle name shared by my mother, sister and I. We love pairing common middles that honor family with unique firsts.”
“My husband and I both love camping. In fact, we hope to own a campground some day. Sylvie means “of the forest” and we loved the meaning behind the name. I also had a great-grandfather Sylvester, so I like that it honors him in a way.”
“In the end my mother’s suggestion of Tallulah won, because we wanted an interesting and not hugely common longer name for the nickname Lou, which will be what she is known as except of course when she’s in trouble!”
“This spelling was chosen because I like how it looks more feminine. Her middle name is after my great great grandmother.”
“We picked the name August two years ago. Little did we know he would actually be born in the month of August. We…loved the NN possibilities that come…in the form of Auggie or Gus, and knowing I didn’t want to fight a long battle of people calling him something I didn’t like. I chose a name that I liked all the NN possibilities!”
“I am in love with their names because they share the same sound but have their own initials.”
“I wanted something traditional but not too popular and Hubby wanted trendy and cool. I think we found the perfect combination with Emmett. I love that it also has a western rodeo feel but could also be your barrister.”
“I’m not usually one for deciding names based on meaning but I love the shared ‘happy meaning between Felix and Blythe. It is a little more popular than I wanted but loving the name was more important. Sebastian is a name that I have loved since I was a child and am very happy to get the opportunity to use it.”
“We eventually opted for Maxime as a reference to my French origins and to my husband’s German ones (it’s spelled differently but pronounced the same in both languages), Alexander because my husband loved it and Cyril to one of my most beloved friends who sadly died before his time.”
“Phineas is the name of my husband’s best friend, and the boys were born on his birthday, so my husband suggested it and it clicked. Keegan is my husband’s name and I wanted at least one of them to have their father’s name.”
What’s your favorite name? First and middle combo? SIbset?

Love that Marion was used for a middle for a boy. That was my grandpa’s middle name and I’ve always loved it.

All so fabulous. I can’t get past how charming Bugsy, Jem, and Lou are together – wow!
Delphine Marie, Orla Phoebe, Tallulah Dorothy, all beautiful and striking. Love the use of Amory and Cyril for boys’ middles, and love Owen! Also think Declan and Phineas make for a neat twin set – big sis Elizabeth Remington “Eliza” has a romantic yet strong name as well, and Zurich Rhodes is such a powerful middle name combination. Bravo.

I forgot to share my name announcement, but seeing this baby August reminded me: I had an August in April! Nameberry polls helped me get to August “Gus” Olin (sister is Ruby Marlowe).

I was curious as to which Odessa city. I’m from Texas, and thought it was a pretty boring place name, but I understand the meaning for the couple. Reading the description I realized it’s not just in Texas. I’m surprised to see Patrick three times as a middle (my boyfriend’s name). It seems very 80s to me. I overall like them all, especially August, Holden, Delphine, and Sylvie (my new cousin’s name is Sylvia Margot (Sylvie))! Alistair Hugo is great and I’ve like Felix for quite some time as well. I like the subset Alistair and Aurora, and Margot and Delphine:)
