English Siblings Named Peppermint, Frodo, Blackbird, Voorhees, etc.

Sara Foss of Derby, England, has 13 children. Their names are:

  1. Patrick, 23
  2. Stephen, 13
  3. Malachai, 12
  4. Peppermint, 11
  5. Echo, 10
  6. Eli, 9
  7. Rogue, 8
  8. Frodo, 7
  9. Morpheus, 5
  10. Artemis, 4
  11. Blackbird, 3
  12. Baudelaire, 2
  13. Voorhees, 9 months

My first thought was: A mom of 13 has time to read Baudelaire? (And, if so, she really thought naming a child after him was an appropriate thing to do?)

But it seems like Sara is more the movie type. Rogue, Frodo, Morpheus and Voorhees’s names look like they come from X-Men (2000), The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and Friday the 13th (2009). Perhaps Baudelaire’s name came from Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004)? The dates don’t quite match up, but that’s all I can think of.

And now, two questions for you: Sara’s having baby #14 in April. What do you think the name will be? She’s also eager to have twins one day. If she ever does, what should their names be?

  1. Hi Nancy,

    I just discovered your blog. Very interesting posts! Keep it up!

    Wow that list is full of quite uncommon names. It’s like she went into a unique name phase after the second child!

    OT: What do you think of the name Deanna? It’s on my list of potential baby names. =)

  2. maybe she has a kindle

  3. If she does, maybe she’ll name one of her kids after it.

    @Dani – Deanna is very nice.

  4. Most of the middle names are easily accessed by anyone using ancestry.uk. All public records.

    I’d love to know all the middle names!

  5. Daniela, I know someone with the name Deanna. She loves it and I love it. I think it should be a big consideration.

  6. [...] 4. A mother of 13 from Derby has named many of her little ‘uns after movie characters, including Frodo, Morpheus, Rogue (from the X-Men) and Voorhees (Jason’s surname from Friday the 13th). She also named a child Baudelaire, but it’s safe to assume it’s after the Lemony Snicket character and not the French poet and critical thinker. (via Nancy’s Baby Names) [...]
