Category: triplet names
By Linda Rosenkrantz
July was a really rich month for berrybaby name choices, with boys name Hawthorne and Wren and two girls with the middle name of Marigold. Other particularly interesting middles for girls included St. Louis and Zélie. And there was a multitude of multiples as well. Here’s the full list, with some of the intriguing reasons behind the choices.
We’ve even, masters of naming that we are, named quintuplets!
And now, we’re asking you to name your ideal set of triplets — an easier enterprise in fantasy than it would be in reality!

This month, in addition to a by-now-expected goldmine of gorgeously creative individual names, we have two pairs of twins and one set of triplets:
We also noticed many more consonant-starting names than usual: could be coincidence, could be a trend.

The time has rolled around again when I get to do one of my favorite things—browse through the Birth Announcement Forum and get to see a snapshot of the gorgeous names Berries have chosen over these past three months–the latest installment of Baby Names 2012. Because each quarter they seem to be more and more impressive and inventive, and this one is no exception, with many great first and middle combos and interesting sibsets as well.
It’s just so gratifying to see the final results of all the Nameberry advice and discussion—ours and especially the wise, measured opinions of fellow Berries — a fantastic mix of the classic and the creative, from Elizabeth to Arrow for a girl, Jack and John to Calder and Cato for boys. Not to mention a veritable botanical garden of flower and tree names—Primrose, Tulip, Rose, Iris, Violet, Lilac, Jacinda, Maple and Olive, as well as a Flora, a Blossom and a Bloom.
