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.

I really wish people would not post fake announcements.

EmilyVA Says:

October 8th, 2013 at 11:35 pm

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

linda Says:

October 8th, 2013 at 11:40 pm

EmilyVA–Somehow Walter is one name that feels real to me.

nyota Says:

October 8th, 2013 at 11:41 pm

Please add Saul Andreas, brother to Saskia Rosemary. Born in August.

linda Says:

October 8th, 2013 at 11:48 pm

Will do.

@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:

Charles Florian
Eben Charles
Hawthorne Sebastian
Lennon Gatsby
Linus Roman
Lionel Ambrose
Rainer Luciano
Ronan Alexander

Oslo. Brother of Elijah, Quentin, Shade, and Gunnar 🙂 All boys. He was born in July

karianne Says:

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?

Netta5187 Says:

Nolan’s middle name is Franko if you want to add it.

kebertsch Says:

October 9th, 2013 at 5:15 am

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 🙂

Stelmaria Says:

October 9th, 2013 at 5:53 am

I love:

Hawthorne Sebastian, I love the nickname Hawk!
Lucian Penn
Marcel Julius
Ronan Alexander
Waylon James

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!

BettyDoGooder Says:

October 9th, 2013 at 6:27 am

My favourite is Linus Roman 🙂

BettyDoGooder Says:

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.

MaggieSmoller Says:

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…

Titus245Mama Says:

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.

I actually have had Clark Alexander on my own name list.

NaviZ Says:

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 🙂

@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.

punkprincessphd Says:

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

punkprincessphd Says:

October 9th, 2013 at 10:48 am

Also, I think Hawthorne. Nn Hawk is thoroughly creative and dashing.

nyota Says:

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! 🙂

dramagrl19 Says:

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. 🙂

EmilyVA Says:

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:
Eben Charles
Malcolm Edwin
Milo Sebastian
Oliver Karl

Congrats again to all the real parents!

Aiden Michael (Same name as one of my nephews) 🙂

Again, thanks for sharing them!

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.

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.

smismar Says:

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!

Yreynolds Says:

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 🙂

brindle Says:

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.

brindle Says:

October 11th, 2013 at 6:59 pm

I very much like:

Linus Roman
Lionel Ambrose (and his entire sibset)
Malcolm Edwin
Otis Lionel
Stuart Francis (my first son is a Stuart and Francis is a family name that was briefly considered)
Walter (all of them!)


arabella77 Says:

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!

Shamicnic Says:

October 16th, 2013 at 4:23 am

Archer Coleman was born in September. He joins big brother Luke.

sdsurfmama Says:

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 🙂

Isabellissima Says:

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!

sorrelorelei Says:

November 13th, 2013 at 4:52 am

Yay! My boy is there! But Peregrine “Penn” Lyons big sister is Iris, not Irish 🙂

linda Says:

November 13th, 2013 at 10:15 am

@sorrelorelei–all fixed!

CandaceMarie321 Says:

November 21st, 2013 at 12:02 pm

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!

CandaceMarie321 Says:

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.
