More recently, I discovered a set of all-girl quadruplets born in the Philippines in 1963, on New Year’s Day. They had similar names — Adelia, Bella, Celia and Dina. (Sadly, I don’t think any of them survived.)
Which set of alphabetical quadruplet names do you prefer? Why?

Identical quadruplets Autumn, Brooke, Calissa and Dahlia were born on August 12 to Canadian couple J.P. and Karen Jepp.
I like that their names are linked, but don’t sound very much alike (i.e. don’t rhyme or share the same rhythm). I think it’s a good idea in this case to give each daughter a name that sounds distinct from the others.
But do I wonder why three of the names are nature-related (a season, a body of water, a flower) and the fourth is not. Seems like Crystal or Cedar would have fit the pattern better than Calissa.
