Reader Casey nearly gave me heart failure by telling me she is 24 weeks pregnant and has QUADRUPLETS to name. Are you getting this down? EIGHT NAMES to choose, four first names and four middle names.
Three of the quads are known to be girls. The fourth is going to be a surprise--which is particularly appropriate because the baby itself was a surprise to parents already getting used to the idea of having triplets. Oh my god, is this not the most wonderfully fun thing you have ever heard of? I have been thinking of this ALL WEEK. Don't you wish we all lived in the same town so we could sign up for shifts to go hold babies? Newborns everywhere, plenty to go 'round! Imagine the surround-sound wahing!
Anyway! The three known-to-be-girls have somehow already been named without our assistance:
The fourth quadruplet, if a boy, will be named Chase Tobias. The decision on the table, then, is what to name the fourth quadruplet if a girl.
The current contenders for first name are Olivia and Addison. (I don't know why "Swistle" isn't in there. I assume it didn't sound good with their surname.) The current contenders for middle name are Grace, Olivia, Addison. This gives you the following name combinations to vote on:
- Olivia Grace
- Olivia Addison
- Addison Grace
- Addison Olivia
But Casey ALSO says that they're open to new name suggestions, so BRING IT!
Well, VOTE first. THEN bring it.
