Leap Day Baby Names – Leaping, Aleapia, Oleap

It’s Leap Day!

Did you know that at least three babies born on Leap Day (February 29) have gotten names to commemorate their rare birthdate?

  • Cody James Leaping Edgerly, born on February 29, 1996.
  • Aleapia Anderson, born on February 29, 1984.
  • Jerence Nansel Oleap “JNO” Fernando, born on February 29, 1944. (He went on to head the Chemistry Department of The Open University of Sri Lanka before passing away in 2015.)

I discovered them via leapyearday.com, which also features a list of Leap Day baby name suggestions ranging from the conceivable (Leapana, Leapold) to the silly (Leap Erickson, Mona Leapa).

Popular Baby Names in Yukon, 1991-2010

Ever wonder what the top baby names in Yukon are?

Me too, so I looked them up.

Turns out the sparsely populated Canadian territory — which is next door to Alaska, larger than California, and home to only about 34,000 people — releases baby name lists that cover 5 years at a time. So let’s roll the four most recent lists (i.e., 20 years of popular names) into a single post, shall we?

According to the Yukon Bureau of Statistics, the most popular baby names were…

  • Ashley/Brittany/Samantha and Michael from 1991 to 1995,
  • Emily and Alexander from 1996 to 2000,
  • Emily and Logan from 2001 to 2005, and
  • Madison and James from 2006 to 2010.

Here are Yukon’s top ten girl names for each five-year period:

Family in Colorado with 12 Children

Earlier today, my husband sent me an article about Dan and Susie Kellogg and their 12 children. The entire family, from Colorado, has lived in an RV full-time since last fall.

I was intrigued when I read that all 12 Kellogg kids have names ending in y. But the family blog, Kellogg Show, makes it clear that the Kellogg kids simply have nicknames ending in y:

  1. Kerrigan, “Kerry” (b. 1993)
  2. Graden, “Grady” (b. 1996)
  3. Broden Michael, “Brody” (b. 1997)
  4. Kadrian, “Kady” (b. 1998)
  5. Kendon Thomas, “Kenny” (b. 2000)
  6. Dallan Patrick, “Dally” (b. 2001)
  7. Carden David, “Cardy” (b. 2003)
  8. Madigan Grace, “Maddy” (b. 2005)
  9. Rowden Vincent, “Rowdy” (b. 2007)
  10. Emmelyn Trinity, “Emmy” (b. 2008)
  11. Ellevyn Noelle, “Elly” (b. 2010)
  12. Cody (b. 2012) – not sure if it’s a nickname

Did you catch Ellevyn for the eleventh child? That would’ve been a good one for an 11-11-11 baby.

Which of the given names above do you like the best? And, which nickname is your favorite?
