Rocco and Jay

 

Many twinnies in this month’s batch of Times and Telegraph announcements.  Ophelia Beatrix Plum.   * Sigh*.  Emilia and Matilda are a nice set.  Pictured above are a pair born in April:  Jay and Rocco.

Evidence of Catholics and Muslims alike– brilliant for Britain’s class conscious society.  What IS up with Rocco?  Was he cool before Madge?  Is he cool now?

“Nicknamishness” persists.  See Lola, Harry, Romy, Jack.

Any favorites?  I’m in a Henry mood today.  The Henrietta Alice Clementine and Henry Horatio Arthur combos are nothing short of genius!

“It’s like Christmas” wrote one commenter when I posted another list of the London Telegraph birth announcements.  

What is it that we find so compelling about these names?  Is it that they can and do take chances, knowing full well that a little Kitty or Hubert will have all the advantages in life regardless of what they are named?  Is it the uncharted territory and venerable history?  The artful combinations of three and sometimes four given names?

Does anyone know an American child named Hector who isn’t Latino?

She’s here!  The third jubilantly named daughter for chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools, Petal Blossom Rainbow Oliver made her debut early this morning in London.  She joins big sisters Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo.  

Petal and Blossom seem redundant to me, both mirroring each other and the sisters, but I like the flow together.  Would have skipped Rainbow– takes an over-the-top name with some charm into Fifi Trixibelle territory. 

HOW did I miss this one on Complete the Celebrity Sibset you ask?  No idea, because I’ve been anticipating this.  So I ask now, what would you have named her?  I have a penchant for Primrose, Marigold, and Lavender– though not together in one name.  What about:

Primrose Ottilia

Marigold Charm

Lavender Lucy

Purple Mountain Majesty

February 27, 2009

iris

 

As February comes to a close, I’m reminded of the things the month means to me:  Valentine’s day, finding out that I was going to become a mother for the first time, and my own mother.  This is Mama’s birth month, and I’ve spent many hours trying to figure out how I might honor her in some way.  Her birthstone is Amethyst, her flower the violet (and sometimes Iris).  All of these things come in a purple hue.  So in remembrance of the color of passion, royalty, and my mom, I present purple names.  

 

Amaranth- Both a medicine and a poison

Amethyst- One of the funniest meanings I’ve yet to come across: in Greek this translates to “not drunk”; February’s birth stone

Aster- Rita’s daughter on Dexter may inspire a few?

Berry- Makes for darling middle if you have this in your family tree

Crocus- Crocodile meets locust?  Well, they come in purple anyway.

Dahlia- A name I like to champion; underused in my opinion

Daphne- means “laurel” in Greek

Freesia- Frigid or freeing?  You decide.

Fuchsia- Pleasing to the ear, but a devil to spell!

Glory- For morning glories

Hibiscus- This one would really need a workable nickname.  Try Ibby on for size.

Hyacinth- Anyone remember “Keeping Up Appearances”?  Hyacinth’s character may not be the best namesake, but she sure made us laugh.  Her sisters are the upper class Violet, the cartoonish down-and-out Daisy, and the sex-addicted Rose.

Indigo- So this leans a little bluish;  it’s making inroads on both sexes

Iolanthe- Greek for “violet”

Iris- Top of the pop amongst those in the know, also has the lovely meaning “rainbow” in Greek

Jacinda, Jacinta- From the Latin for “hyacinth”

Laurel- Who brings with her Laura, Laurence, Lawrence, Lauren

Lavandula- The genus for lavender

Lavender- I heard this on a real life girl and found it charming

Lilac- One with real potential, but few seem to consider it

Lydia- Said to be a “seller of purple”, which may mean that she sold cloth and other goods to royalty and the wealthy

Magenta- My favorite Rocky Horror Picture Show gal, and Blue’s cousin from Blue’s Clues

Mauve- A cross between Maeve and Maude

Myrtille- “Blueberry” in French

Orchid- Though this is one of the loveliest of flowers, take caution that its meaning derives from orchis, or “testicle” in Latin

Periwinkle- My favorite Crayola, Perry makes this *almost* usable (but not quite)

Pansy- Due to connotations, this may be better left in the middle or on your kitten

Plum- Plum Sykes is the best known bearer, but this has real potential

Primrose- Too prim for most, it sets just the right sweet British-inflected tone for others

Primula- The primrose genus

Prune- Evidently quite chic in Paris, this is actually the French word for the ripe plum

Rose- Roses come in nearly every shade, my favorite perhaps being lavender 

Thistle- Reservations with this one as it rhymes with bristle

Uva- While Uva could be just a step away from Ava, know that it means “grape”

Verbena- The sweetest little flower

Violet, Violetta, Violette, Viola- Let’s not forget about Violet’s equally sweet and underappreciated companions

Wisteria- I once met child sisters Primrose, Wisteria, and Violet


This is Just to Say



I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast.

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold.
- William Carlos Williams

Telegraphed.

etc_weekend_letter_telegram_envelope1

England may be cheating us out of national statistics this year, but we can delight that the London Telegraph continues to print the birth announcements of the wealthy and connected.  

Most of the names here are distinctly British, or at least distinctive.  I dig the alliteration of Constance Cordelia, Agatha Appoline, Jemima Juliet and Margot Mary. There are also a lot of babies who stood out in part because of the fabulous sibling groups: Leopold and Ambrose; Iona, Ru, Eléa and Archie; Woody, Hector, Jago and Ayre; Finty, Heby, and Ottilie.  Wonder what some of these are short for?  There’s precisely one combination below I would steal for myself, but I’m not telling what it is– I like it that much!  

My favorite announcement was one that read: “Mother doing well. Father drunk!”

Gobsmacked!

October 12, 2008

Swoonworthy monikers leaped off the page in recent London Telegraph announcements. I’m particularly riveted with unexpected combinations and precious jewels found in the middle spots. Ranging from the Lofty (Willoughby) to the diminutive (Kitty) to the downright kooky (Rokeby) or old-fashioned (Dorothy), these names span quite the spectrum. The one unifying element is that they somehow all manage to sound very British. Shall they remain so, or should we Yanks adopt one or two?

Quintessentially British

August 21, 2008

 

Well, they’ve gone and done it again.

Last month I posted about birth announcements from the upper crust London Times and Telegraph.   Now they’ve had more babies.  So I plucked a few that stood out to me.  Not all are English, some are quintessentially Scottish or Irish or even Italian. The family that just had its twelfth child has remarkably good taste I think!  Though five of the nine sisters’ names do rhyme.  They named the tenth Decima, which indeed means “tenth.”  There were a lot of repeating announcements, which explains why the Times list is a little thin.  I might poach Ianthe, Leonora, Arthur, and Otto.  You?
