Your Challenge.

June 12th, 2013

New game!


1. Name 9 children from *your own* previous choices in the SSA sibset game.

2. 4 boys, 4 girls, 1 your choice.

3. The 9 names must come from at least 7 different centennial sets.

4. No cheating!  No substitutions!


Hint: Think about the original style of the name rather than be preoccupied with its popularity, and most importantly, choose names you love!

    Well, it looks like I took a bit of a break from playing for the 300s-500s, so these are only from six of the lists, but…

    Estelle Celine (900s)

    Edison Eugene (700s)

  7. TaraRhode Says:

    This was actually much easier than I anticipated!

    I would use all of these names IRL, although I would perhaps change some middle names to ones of family significance.

    Oliver Thomas
    Jasper Dean
    August Beau
    Callum Vaughn
    Hugo Atticus
    Bridget June
    Felicity River

    Hugh Agustin – 900 – a twin

    *Francesca Helen was a particularly difficult birth born on St Bridget’s day so she received an additional name…

  10. Malin Says:

    I have used too many Rose-variants in my best combos, that won’t do for a sibset … Nor will two Leo- names, or two August- names. So these are not the very best combos, because I also wanted them to be a sibset I could accept. ;) (But I still have Miriam and Moses? Oh well.)

  15. Natalie Says:

    This was so much harder than I thought it was going to be and (almost) unintentionally I’ve named 5 daughters with “botanical” names. Actually when I looked over my shortlist nearly every girls names has either a flower name in the first or middle spot.

    Four sons and five daughters;

    Elijah John, from the 0-100′s
    Ezra Jude, from the 100′s
    Archer Matthew, from the 400′s
    Rohan Augustus, from the 600′s
    Ivy Catherine, from the 100′s
    Olive Juliette, from the 300′s
    Daphne June, from the 400′s
    Lilia Blair, from the 800′s
    Azalea Belen, from the 900′s

    Elijah, Ezra, Archer, Rohan, Ivy, Olive, Daphne, Lilia and Azalea :)

    Indie, Tessie, Vivie, Betsy, Daisy, Joe, Dex, Jack, and Wes :)

    (After reviewing these, I’ve determined that the 300s were my favorite set I created! This was so fun!)

    using the same combos from the same group, i decided to form four-name combinations, Telegraph style. I hope that’s not cheating!

    Julian Charles (000s)
    August Reed (300s)

    I think my numbers are right, apologies if they’re not.

    This might me the most fun I’ve ever had on the internet. These are all very much on my active name list. I’m sad to not include a few (can’t really name all my girls Adeline, Adelina, Adelaide, Cora, Coraline, and Coralie. HA!) but really love everything here. Adding in Mary for our grandmothers, Cora Mary Josephine may have just leaped to the top of my actual name list.

    Such beautiful names

  34. Vanessa Says:

    This was much harder than I thought, since I tend to be very picky about using names that match in style, but not in how they look/sound. It was also hard because I used different naming styles for different sib-sets. Overall though, I am happy with these names and would use any of them in real life, except for some of the middles.

    Olive Alessandra (300′s)

    The following are names (including middles) which are from my Name Game lists, according to your rules.

    1. Archer Malcolm (400s)
    2. Atticus River (400s)
    3. Jasper Dean (200s)
    4. Charlie Elliot (200s)

    7. Edith Galilea (700s)
    8. Vera Sylvia (500s)
    9. Beatrice Matilda (600s)

    The next are names using firsts and middles from my Name Game lists, but they may not necessarily be the original full name I chose. This list is probably a lot more reflective of my taste.

    1. Atticus Edward
    2. Archer Dean
    3. Jasper Harry
    4. Malachi Ezra
    5. Edith Juniper
    6. Vera Eleanor
    7. Luna Beatrice
    8. Gemma Iris
    9. Cecilia Pearl

  39. Amy3 Says:

    I set some extra challenges for myself. All of the siblings had to have a different initial letter for the first name. I wanted each of the first names to have its own ending sound, not shared by any of the others, but that broke down on #9 when I had to choose another -ee ending. I also included my daughter’s name (Astrid) to further tighten the parameters:

    1. John Adrian (top 100)
    2. Paul Emmett (100s)
    3. Miriam Eloise (300s)
    4. Olive Ruth (300s)
    5. Daphne June (400s)
    6. Elsa Gwendolyn (500s)

    Adrian Patrick, 7
    Hazel Hermione, 5
    Toby Brighton, 3
    Iris Ottilie, 2
    Heath Bromley, 3 months

    The twins and the baby are the only ones with nicknames: Lily & Vivi (viv-ee), and baby Brom.

  42. Catriona Says:

    Oh, this was too hard! (A bit like choosing a favourite child?!)
    To stick by the challenge’s rules, and to make a cohesive sounding sibset, I’ve painfully whittled it down to…

    Eleanor Ruby (100s)
    Daisy Clementine (100s)
    Evangeline Pearl (200s)
    Rosalie Florence (400s)
    Meredith Patience (600s)

    Christian Alexander (1-99)
    Calvin Jude (100s)
    Walter Frederick (300s)
    Leonard Roland (700s)

    Eleanor, Meredith, Daisy, Evangeline, Rosalie, Christian, Calvin, Walter and Leonard…I would use any of these in a heartbeat. Husband, on the other hand, might take a bit more persuasion ;)
