According to Guinness, the heaviest triplets (at birth) were the Sullivan triplets of North Carolina. Kate, Ethan and Owen Sullivan (one girl and two boys) were born on October 13, 2011. They had a combined weight of over 18 pounds.
A few weeks ago, an even heavier set of triplets was born in California. Sidney, Elliott and Jenson Deen (three boys) arrived on November 8, 2012. They had a combined weight of over 20 pounds.
Jenson’s jump immediately reminded me of an article I read about a baby named Jenson Lewis. He was born in late 2009 to Trevor and Mandy Sutton of Coventry, England, and named after British Formula One drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
Looks as though Jenson Button inspired many other expectant parents in the UK to opt for Jenson as well.
What do you think of the name?
EDIT, 8/1 – Just found another Jenson Button baby. This Jenson was born January 1, 2011, and is the son of Gemma Roberts and Michael Iles of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England.
Some names popped up on both lists, which was very interesting. Darcy was on the boys’ list, Darcie and Darcey were on the girls’ list. (Mr. Darcy influence, perhaps?) Frankie ranked for girls, and both Frank and Frances ranked for boys.
Hop on over and check out the lists (and Luke’s other posts). Which of the names do you like best?
