Newest Girl Babyberries: The 3rd Quarterly Report of 2013, from Ada to Xanthe

Newest Girl Babyberries: The 3rd Quarterly Report of 2013, from Ada to Xanthe

by Linda Rosenkrantz


I was completely overwhelmed by the sheer quantity, gorgeousness and wild originality of the names reported in the Birth Announcement forums for this third quarter of the year, from July through the end of September.  So overwhelmed, in fact, that I’m dividing the results into two separate blogs—one for the girls and one for the boys.

Not surprisingly, with this large number of names, there were more duplicates than ever.  Perennial NB fave Charlotte along with Phoebe were chosen three times, while the girls’ names picked twice were Alice, Annabel, Arabella, Daisy, Daphne, ElodieFrancine, Ivy, Luna, Nora, Penelope, Rory and Vivienne.

Most popular initial: A (surprise, surprise); most popular consonant initial: M

Most unusual middle name: Wildflower

Rae seems to be replacing Rose in the middle spot.

A bountiful bouquet of nature names includes Daisy, Fleur, Holly, Ivy, Juniper, Lake, Magnolia, Marigold, Moon, Primrose, Rose, Sage, and Willow

We did also notice an increase in international names, and a few more creative spellings than usual.

So here is the complete list of girl babyberries reported during this period—note some of the great sibsets!  Hope we didn’t miss any.
