The Alpha-Quad Name Battle

Years ago I posted about a set of all-girl quadruplets born in Canada in 2007. They had alphabetical names: Autumn, Brooke, Calissa and Dahlia.

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?

Alphabetical Names for Two Sets of Twins

On Valentine’s Day, Texas couple Manuel and Tressa Montalvo (and their 2-year-old son Memphis) welcomed four baby boys into the family.

This was no ordinary set of quadruplets, though. Tressa had given birth to two sets of identical twins.

The odds of that happening? About 1 in 70 million.

The first set of twins was named Ace and Blaine. The second set was named Cash and Dylan.

“We tried to stick to the A-B-C-D theme when naming them,” Tressa said. (So did Canadian couple J.P. and Karen Jepp, who named their quads Autumn, Brooke, Calissa and Dahlia.)

Do you like the names Ace, Blaine, Cash and Dylan?

If you were going to rename these babies and follow the same pattern, what four alphabetical boy names would you choose?

Rare Identical Quadruplets – Autumn, Brooke, Calissa, Dahlia

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.

The girls have a 2-year-old brother named Simon.
