The New Trend and Names

Yesterday, I read an article entitled "Two: The New One." Apparently, the number of twins has risen drastically over the past few years. In fact, the article claims one in every thirty-three children born is a twin. Crazy, huh? I began thinking about it, and I know of enough twins to believe the statistic.

In other news, naming two little boys is proving to be more difficult than I previously imagined. There are so many variables to take into account (in my mind, at least). We already have a firm name for Baby A, but find ourselves constantly changing our minds when it comes to Baby B. Nathan and I wanted the boys to have separate, distinct names, but I find I cannot escape my love for E names. Twins with E names? Three children with E names? Is it too much?

I know there are obviously more important things to worry about, but I feel like naming a child is such a serious responsibility. Of course, we have plenty of time to decide upon names; it's just one of those things you think about often while pregnant!


  1. Remember the long agonizing hours and days and months picking Ruby's name? I completely understand. I love your choice for Baby A's name and I know Baby B will be equally lucky :)

  2. I think baby naming is SO hard. Ella didn't have a name until a couple days after birth because we were still trying to decide... and she was two weeks late at that! Good luck! I'm sure you'll choose fantastic names for your sons!

  3. My sister-in-law, Shannon, didn't decide on the final name for her last two until after they were born. So yeah, you're good. :)

  4. Names are so hard! I am also addicted to E names though! Nick told me i can't have more than two (our future *hoping* little girl's name starts with an E) but i want ALL of the rest of the names to be E! haha!
