We have a new set of quadruplet boys in our NICU and the parents have posted a poll about their names, seeking input and suggestions from the staff, so I thought I’d share it here to see what berries have to say about it!
The boys were originally to be named [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], [name_m]Roarke[/name_m], [name_m]Finnigan[/name_m] and [name_m]Callister[/name_m] ([name_u]Van[/name_u], [name_u]Rory[/name_u], [name_u]Finn[/name_u], [name_u]Cal[/name_u]). Their last name is decidedly Irish. They have since become enamored of sticking with the A-B-C-D designation the boys have had in the hospital since birth and want to incorporate that somehow.
They’ve come up with these favorite A-B-C-D names and are looking to add them as either middle or first names, while keeping the boy’s original names as well.
A-[name_u]Ashby[/name_u], Aeson, [name_u]Alden[/name_u], [name_m]Anders[/name_m]
B-[name_u]Brennan[/name_u], [name_m]Beckett[/name_m], Baylen, [name_m]Bowen[/name_m], [name_m]Braxton[/name_m]
C-Probably will stick with [name_m]Callister[/name_m], but also like [name_m]Crew[/name_m], Carrick, [name_u]Calder[/name_u], [name_u]Camden[/name_u]
D-[name_m]Dawson[/name_m], Daelan, [name_m]Declan[/name_m], Daughtry, [name_m]Deveraux[/name_m]
They’re looking for feedback, combo suggestions, feelings about the A-B-C-D theme…
(The boys were born at 33 weeks (amazing!), are doing very well and expected to be discharged from NICU in a month or less!)
Personally, I love their original names and suggested using the A-B-C-D names as middle names to compliment first names. Someone at work went completely off the grid and suggested ditching all previous ideas and going with [name_m]Wilder[/name_m], [name_u]Calder[/name_u], [name_m]Thayer[/name_m] and [name_u]River[/name_u] and the parents actually love those names too!
If anyone responds, I’ll be sure to pass your ideas along to our happy, but name-conflicted parents!
