Sibling Names: Naming your family, Duggar-style

November 15, 2011 Pamela Redmond

Is this a name game or a baby-naming advice blog?

No matter.  The idea is that some people want to choose sibling names that all start with the same letter, and there really (really!) isn’t anything wrong with that.  It can give your family a nice cohesive feel and, as long as the names aren’t too matchy-matchy or you don’t have 20 kids (I’m looking at you, Duggars), provide a simple theme that unifies your children’s names.

So what are some good sibling names for each letter of the alphabet?  Berries, I can hear you flexing your typing fingers to let us know your picks, and I hope you will.

Some ideas of our own, with two girls’ names and two boys’ for each letter that we could imagine co-existing in the same family, in any combination.

Bellamy, Benno, Blossom, Barnaby

Sorry we skipped some of the hard letters; feel free to create those if you want!

What would you change or add?  Which letter family would you claim for your own?
