Vegas Quints All Get D-Names

Last month, Deon and Evonne Derrico of Las Vegas welcomed quintuplets.

Each of their four older children has a D-name, so they kept with tradition and gave the quints D-names as well:

  • Deniko (boy)
  • Dariz (boy)
  • Deonee (girl)
  • Daician (girl)
  • Daiten (girl)

Other name patterns we’ve seen with quints so far are alphabetical names (Anna, Brody, Ciara, David, Ella) and first letters that spell a word (Gabrielle, Riley, Addison, Cooper, Emerson). We’ve also seen two sets of quints without name patterns: the Jones quints (Will, David, Marcie, Seth, Grace) and the Bieber quints (Kate, Samuel, Troy, Auden, Shiloh).

And now some fun questions for you: If you had to name a set of quintuplets, and all the names had to start with the same letter, which letter would you choose? Why? And, what names would you choose? (Let’s say there are 2 boys and 3 girls, just like the Derrico quints.)

  1. I would choose either A names or M names:

    Alexander
    Arthur
    Amelia
    Anneliese
    Abigail

    or

    Matthew
    Maxwell
    Margaret
    Madeleine
    Mariah

    But I wouldn’t actually do that to Quints. I grew up in a family of all “S” names. We all don’t like repeating initials at all.

  2. I would go with P…Because P is for “panic” and that’s what I’d do if I found out I was having five babies at once!

    Persephone
    Petra
    Paloma
    Peregrine
    Parson

  3. I agree with Sharalyn, wouldn’t do that, my father and I shared the same inital and that was bad enough, but I do like the letter N and after consulting the baby name book I’ve come up with.
    Noah
    Noel
    Naomi
    Noelle
    Neroli

  4. I’m breaking the rules. Since my other kids are K, S, M & P… I’m going to fill in the missing initials.

    Lena
    Nesta
    Oliver
    Quinn
    Raina

  5. I could do lots of letters:
    Mariah, Meredith, Miranda, Milo, Malcom
    Julia, Jane, Joanne, Jed, Joel
    Elsie, Enora, Elaine, Everett, Eli

    But I probably wouldn’t. If I wanted to connect then names somehow, I’d try a more subtle way.

    Like maybe the middle names would start with the same letter, instead of the first names:
    Elise Hadley
    Kelsey Hazel
    Marie Harper
    Samuel Hoban
    Joshua Harris

    Or maybe four-letter first names:
    Lexi Channer
    Hope Anessa
    Aida Wynn
    Drew Anson
    Owen Shaw

  6. I wouldn’t do that either because I personally do not like all the siblings to have the same first initial. But, for the sake of this post, I’d choose J, so I could use my favorite name, James.

    James
    Jane
    Jonathan
    Josette
    Jillian

    If I did have quintuplets (oh my goodness, just the thought!) I’d do something more like honor different members of my family or something like a connection via meaning, origin, etc.
