Newest Boy Babyberries: The 3rd Quarterly Report of 2013, from Alaric to Zion
By Linda Rosenkrantz
We had that great bonanza of great girls’ names in Part One of this Quarterly Report yesterday, now here are the boys. This should once and for all put the kibosh on the idea that they aren’t as varied, interesting, copious and creative as their sisters’. Two Peregrines! Five variations of Edward! A Leviticus and a Lysander! A Hiram and a Huck!
Most popular vowel: E, Most popular consonant initial: L
Unusual middles: Banjo and Chief
The complete list:
Callum Ruairi, brother of Sorcha
Henry, brother of Tage
Matthias William, brother of Asher Joseph, Acacia Lily, Micah Paul and Eliora Grace
Oslo, brother of Elijah, Quentin, Shade and Gunnar
Ove, brother of Måns and Fabian
Sixten, brother of Ceasar
Wilde, brother of Olivia

My goodness, what an usual pregnancy the mother of Felix Apollo must have had! You know…since he was also announced with my Felix Samuel Gregory. http://nameberry.com/blog/babyberry-roundup-the-fourth-quarterly-report-of-2012
I really wish people would not post fake announcements.

That’s a whole lot of Walters. Breaking Bad must be having an affect.
Congratulations to all the real parents!

EmilyVA–Somehow Walter is one name that feels real to me.
on October 8th, 2013 at 11:41 pm
Please add Saul Andreas, brother to Saskia Rosemary. Born in August.

@Teatime- I don’t think it was a fake, I looked it up and yes the announcement WAS from 2012. But someone (not the mother) bumped the thread up in the Birth announcements so it probably LOOKED like it was from this year. I even looked on the mom’s profile and it said she hasn’t even been on Nameberry since December of 2012. So she wasn’t even the one to bump her thread…as I said, not a fake…. just a misunderstanding as I see it…
ANYhoo….again I love a lot of the names on here but here are a few of my favorites:
on October 9th, 2013 at 12:25 am
Oslo. Brother of Elijah, Quentin, Shade, and Gunnar 🙂 All boys. He was born in July
on October 9th, 2013 at 12:55 am
I thought I had announced it before, but I guess I didn’t. I just added Oslo, can you put his name up?
on October 9th, 2013 at 1:01 am
Alaric Byron Bond
Orlando Peregrine Chet
on October 9th, 2013 at 2:56 am
Nolan’s middle name is Franko if you want to add it.

I LOVE Jem as a nickname for Jeremy! A nice nod to To Kill a Mockingbird. We’re considering using Jem as a nickname for Jameson, but I was hesitant because of all of the little baby girl Gemmas we’ve been seeing…this just might give me the courage though 🙂
on October 9th, 2013 at 5:53 am
Hawthorne Sebastian, I love the nickname Hawk!
I also like Jasper, Liam, Seabstian, Felix and Flynn, but not so much the combonations.
My favorite would have to be Lucian Penn or Marcel Julius!
on October 9th, 2013 at 6:27 am
My favourite is Linus Roman 🙂
on October 9th, 2013 at 6:30 am
Im also digging Dion- a new name for me. Similar to Leon but since i know a Leon Dion makes a nice alternative.
on October 9th, 2013 at 7:17 am
I like the list… But did anyone else notice “Wilde, brother of Olivia” … seems coincidental to the actress Olivia Wilde. But maybe it’s just me…
on October 9th, 2013 at 7:24 am
I guess I never officially announced it. Please add Matthias William, brother to Asher Joseph, Acacia Lily, Micah Paul, and Eliora Grace.
on October 9th, 2013 at 7:36 am
Once again, so many winners! I especially love:
on October 9th, 2013 at 7:37 am
I actually have had Clark Alexander on my own name list.
on October 9th, 2013 at 8:00 am
Great set of names! However, there is a little typo. Our Augustus Wilder is brother to Felix Newton, not Feliz 🙂
on October 9th, 2013 at 9:03 am
I remember seeing Callum Theodore in Q2 as well, but I love the combo!
on October 9th, 2013 at 10:10 am
Loving Callum Theodore & Theo Sullivan!
Favorite sib-set: Emerson Banjo, brother of Jack Tennyson, Archer Fitzwilliam and Willa Jean
on October 9th, 2013 at 10:30 am
Some fabulous names and these are my personal favorites:
August Henry – WOW!
Augustus Wilder – DOUBLE WOW!
Great to see THREE Walters.
on October 9th, 2013 at 10:31 am
@nyota You have a Saskia Rosemary???? I have a Saskia Rosemary born in 2007! I’ve never come across another Saskia, much less a Saskia Rosemary! Rosemary was after my mother Mary and my aunt Rosalind.
on October 9th, 2013 at 10:46 am
Callum Ruairi, born July, brother to Sorcha. I announced his arrival in momberries instead of the official announcement forum. Thanks! Punkprincessphd
on October 9th, 2013 at 10:48 am
Also, I think Hawthorne. Nn Hawk is thoroughly creative and dashing.
on October 9th, 2013 at 12:14 pm
@Devine7 That’s crazy! Yes, she’s Saskia Rosemary, born 2010. Named for Great Grandmothers Mary and Rosella. I’ve only met one other kid-Saskia. What good taste! 🙂
on October 9th, 2013 at 2:00 pm
Finley Makiya isn’t a boy, I searched that name and it said Finley was a girl in the birth announcement. Just thought I’d let you know. 🙂
on October 9th, 2013 at 2:59 pm
I didn’t mean to imply any of the Walters were fake; I just was surprised to see so many.
Of the names here, I really like:
Congrats again to all the real parents!
on October 9th, 2013 at 3:17 pm
Real live Leopolds and Sterlings in the world! I love you, berries!
on October 9th, 2013 at 3:32 pm
I just love August Henry and Augustus Wilder! Two of my name crushes. Gland to see my George Everett on the list! Wonderful job new parents!!
on October 9th, 2013 at 6:47 pm
Double-ups on the boys side – Names that were announced last quarter:
Lennon Gatsby was proven to be a troll.
on October 9th, 2013 at 7:58 pm
There are a lot of great names here! These are my favorites:
Aiden Michael (Same name as one of my nephews) 🙂
Bastian (I’ve been in love with this one since I first saw The Never Ending Story)
Francis Owen (strong and royal )
Gideon Wesley ( That country western charm)
Levi Reid (Rugged but biblical, so love it!)
Mauricio (Such a romantic!)
Theodore Scott (He will be on Wall Street someday! I love it!)
Again, thanks for sharing them!
on October 9th, 2013 at 9:56 pm
Congrats to all mumberries! Our population is sure growing! The cost of living in Sydney is so high we only average 2.3 kids but everywhere else I see families have 5+ kids.
Flynn, Oliver, Lysander, Callum and Lysander all strong, solid names.
on October 10th, 2013 at 12:13 am
My top five favourites:
Special shout-out to my two gorgeous cousins on this list, Elliot Linke and Liam Benjamin!
on October 10th, 2013 at 2:08 am
Huck and Posy, beautiful
on October 10th, 2013 at 9:26 am
Love all the August(us) love, both in front and in the middle. Great to see a Harvey, too!
on October 10th, 2013 at 12:05 pm
Again swooning over so many of these names!! Congrats to the all the new-parents of all the gorgeous girl’s and boys!!
on October 10th, 2013 at 8:08 pm
Congratulations! Love, love, love Eben Charles! Eben has been my “crush” name for some time now. I also like Aiden Michael, Andrew James, Clark Alexander, Colin James, Gideon Wesley, Julian, Liam Chase, Owen, and Rhys. My next son’s name if born tomorrow would be Eben James.
on October 10th, 2013 at 8:21 pm
Thanks for the love for Linus Roman! We debated long and hard about it, but it totally fits him. I can’t imagine using any other name on our list. He’s 7 weeks now, and he’s my Linus. His big sister is totally smitten and tells everyone that he’s HER baby. LOL!
on October 11th, 2013 at 11:40 am
I was worried that Hawthorne “Hawk” Sebastian would seem too “out there” for most, but I love seeing all the positive feedback! Thank you! We think the name suits our little guy perfectly 🙂
on October 11th, 2013 at 6:35 pm
I love all the Eben love here. Thank you! I almost had regrets the first (and second, and third) time my boss called him “EE-ben,” but five months down the road I’m so happy hearing and saying and seeing his name. Thanks for getting it, berries.
on October 11th, 2013 at 6:59 pm
I very much like:
Lionel Ambrose (and his entire sibset)
Stuart Francis (my first son is a Stuart and Francis is a family name that was briefly considered)
Walter (all of them!)
on October 13th, 2013 at 7:55 pm
Wow! So many of these are stunning! I absolutely adore the combination of the stately, buttoned up Augustus with the rowdy and daring Wilder, and Lochlan Elias has such a handsome sound, striking just the right balance of familiar yet unusual. I was also overjoyed to see Emerson on Team Blue. It was my great-uncle’s name (he had a twin named Anderson), and I’ve always loved it for a boy. Congratulations to all the new parents!
on October 16th, 2013 at 4:23 am
Archer Coleman was born in September. He joins big brother Luke.
on October 22nd, 2013 at 4:51 pm
Such great names! I feel inspired to have another son now. My boy definitely fits his Desmond Sanders (Desi), but if I were to have another boy one day, I’d find it hard to resist
Leopold, Sterling, or Hawthorne. I also have soft spots for Boaz, Francis, Orlando, Malcolm, and Vincent. Before trying to find a boy name for my baby, I thought boys’ names were less exciting than girls’ names. I’ve changed my mind 🙂
on November 6th, 2013 at 9:18 pm
Of course my son’s name is my favorite! But please correct Sacha Ryan’s brother’s name: it is Keegan Serge, not Keenan. Thanks!
on November 13th, 2013 at 4:52 am
Yay! My boy is there! But Peregrine “Penn” Lyons big sister is Iris, not Irish 🙂

Wow, I am pleasantly surprised by how many times Theodore or Theo show up. My 8 year old is Theodore (formerly Teddy, not just Theodore) and the only other Theodore’s we know are his grandpa’s age. Saw my son Jensen up there too. I will be really surprised when I see my son Kaelen’s name (or Cailan or other spelling variation) show up.
Congrats to all these parents of baby boys! Have fun!
on November 21st, 2013 at 12:04 pm
Oops! My 8 year old was Teddy NOW he is just Theodore. He is “too old” for Teddy, and has been for a few years. They grow up so fast.
