Do you know any babies named Adah? How about Amina or Alva or Acacious? Those names and others I have attached are expected to be part of the top 20 names for next year.

The name on list is Ad-ah not Ada. Ada used to be an old lady name.

Yes but the Alva I know is a little girl. I know an Easton (and his twin Weston), Diego, Ash (though it’s sorts for Asher), Austin, Reese (though it’s a boy) and Billie (again, it’s a boy). I also know someone with the first name Teagan but goes by his middle name (yup, another boy) Declan. I love his name. Teagan Declan Reagan. Geez I wish I was Irish.

A little girl across the street is Teagan. Declan is an old Irish or Scottish name. You know an Easton and Weston in same family? Are the parents North and South?

Nope. The boys are twins. Mirror twins (my mom says, I have no idea what that even means, to be honest). So, Weston was a family name and when they found out they were twins they were coming up with other names. When they discovered they were “mirror twins” they went from Weston and Wyatt to Weston and Easton.

No, my brothers are identical.

It’s the way the egg splits in this case.

I looked it up:
Mirror twins—or mirror image twins—aren’t really a category of twins, like identical/monozygotic twins. Rather, the term “mirror twins” describes a characteristic of some twins, where their features appear asymmetrically—that is, on opposite sides. A birthmark may manifest on the left side of one twin but on the right side of the other. Facial features such as dimples may be on opposite sides of the face. The shape or placement of facial features such as eyebrows, nostrils or ears appears opposite so that when facing each other, the twins seem to be reflections as if looking into a mirror. Cowlicks may run clockwise on one twin, and counterclockwise on the other.
In the case of situs inversus, an assessment using X-ray, CT scan, MRI or ultrasound can identify the position of internal organs.

My mom says Easton’s liver is on the opposite side.

Yet his heart is where it’s supposed to be. So, I guess not all mirror twins are exact mirror images. She said there may be more about them but it came up in conversation with my mom. They were comparing “twin notes” (my brother are just normal identical twins) and she told them about Weston and Easton. That was the first my mom knew anyone who was a mirror or raising mirror twins. Oh also Easton’s appendix is moved over and not where one would expect to find it.

Naming a child the same as an insane Roman leader would have to be a name I liked A LOT.
Still....it’s kind of a cool name.

I know a guy with the middle name of Geronimo. I was very impressed when I found that out. I mean....that is a COOL name! Wish we had cool names. First or middle!

Is that a common Finnish name? I’m not counting that and she’s perfect anyway.
