Harlow & Finley

I am almost at my due date for my triplets and today my husband, sister and I went to tour the hopsital/NICU where I will be delivering my babies… my sister and I went to the nursery which the nurses are right now calling the “[name]Harlow[/name] & [name]Finley[/name] place” because… right now there are 2 of each!!!
There is a [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Leia[/name], another [name]Harlow[/name], and two Finleys (both girls!)
I juts thought this was too funny as I notice ALOT ppl considering these names for there babies, and while the names ARE beautiful… it juts goes to show how popular they are… The hopsital is a pretty busy one, and since its nicu some of the babies are older, while some brand new (one of the Finleys was juts being brought in the nursery, while one of the Harlows is almost ready to go home when we toured)… but STILL!

I know! These are great names, but it’s all over once a name becomes co-opted by a celebrity or a celebrity’s baby :frowning: .

Other names I’d always loved, and was bummed when they became popularized by celebrities are:


I know, [name]Eden[/name] & [name]Isla[/name] arre both names I considered for my babies… but I already have a [name]Savanna[/name], so [name]Eden[/name] was nixed almost right away ([name]Marcia[/name] [name]Cross[/name]’ twin girl are [name]Eden[/name] & [name]Savannah[/name]) and [name]Isla[/name] I looove, but Im afraid it is juts going to be become over popular!

What names did you finally decide on for your triplets?

[name]Do[/name] you still need suggestions? Let us know what you have decided on.

I can’t get behind [name]Harlow[/name]. I know there’s the whole Hollywood connection, but all I can think of is a rather depressing city in [name]Essex[/name]. It would be like calling my child Slough or Coventry. Which is why I suspect it’s a US-only trend.

I havent!! I change my mind every 5 minutes!!! I find one name I really, really love… and either my husband hates it or it juts doesnt ‘flow’ well with other names
(For instance, I love [name]Cynthia[/name] and [name]Sydney[/name] but I feel like [name]Savanna[/name], [name]Cynthia[/name] and [name]Sydney[/name] is juts too much to say!)

I havent made any real decisions yet, so any suggestions anyone has would be more than helpful!

My favourite girls’ names, as suggestionds for you (I’m not sure what your style is, so I’m sorry if you hate them all!) :
[name]Evadne[/name] (ev-ad-nee)
[name]Ianthe[/name] (yan-thee)
[name]Xanthe[/name] (zan-thee)
[name]Isolde[/name] (iz-old-uh)
[name]Iseult[/name] (iz-ult)
[name]Thisbe[/name] (thiz-bee)
[name]Dorothy[/name]/[name]Dorothea[/name] nn [name]Dotty[/name]/[name]Thea[/name]
[name]Cordelia[/name] nn [name]Cora[/name]
Willhelmina nn [name]Willa[/name]
[name]Willamina[/name] nn [name]Willa[/name]
[name]Theodora[/name] nn [name]Thea[/name]/[name]Dora[/name]
[name]Calliope[/name] (call-ee-oh-pee)
[name]Tertia[/name] (for the third baby, and probably as a mn)
[name]Seren[/name] (Welsh - sare-en, I think)

Phew, I think I’ve pretty much exhausted my name bank!
Good luck!
