(Adrienne + Belle)
(Ardelia + Wilhelmina)
(Elizabeth + Christine)

(Charles + Pauline)
(Leila + Elizabeth)
(Luna + Nettie)
(Marjorie + Henrietta)
(May + Elizabeth)
(Ola + Isabel)
(Olive + Louise)
(Romeo + Juliette)

A few days ago, a woman named Armina Babayan gave birth to a baby girl aboard an Armavia Airlines flight en route from Siberia to Yerevan, Armenia.
Armina decided to name her daughter Asmik after flight attendant Asmik Gevondyan, one of several crew members who helped with the delivery.
(A few decades ago, a baby girl was named Wafa for an Alia Airlines flight attendant.)
