Unusual but fabulous sibling combinations

I know 3 siblings, all in their 20s, named Basil, Spike and Jemima.

I can't help but think how badass their parents must be! I envisage the whole family as really cool post-punk types. The kids are really great, upstanding people. I'm a little bit in awe to be honest!

Have you ever come across siblings whose names are odd, but it just somehow works?

When I was little (mid 80's) there were twins on our street called Chelsea and pepper - I often wonder if pepper likes her name now she's a woman in her 30's - what a brave combo though!

When I was a kid my parents had friends with DCs called Damon and Dorcas.

I don't remember meeeting them, but the family would send us books every Christmas, and write 'Love From Damon and Dorcas'.

I didn't work out what sex they were until I was in my 20s! grin

Xigris I know a Buzz too. I wouldn't say he's exactly humourless but he is painfully shy and very retiring. I know a shy Spike too funnily enough. They're not related though, so I've wandered off topic, sorry.

Gulliver and Zebedee.

I love Pepper. Dh would never have gone for it. Now dd is 20 months it would really suit her but she is her name and I obv love that too.

At school I knew 3 brothers called Andrew, Torben and Buzz. Dread to think what a 4th boy would have been called! confused

I know a little boy called John Thomas...... I also worked with a man whose two young sons are called Cyril and Cedric ( I kid you not).

My eldest sibling's name begins with A. Three more children later, my youngest one's name deliberately begins with Z.

Melody, Willow and Storm. Hippy-ish family.

These are all so great! Huge fan of Beatrix, Juniper, Romilly, Coraline and Pippa!

Think Spike has to be added to my list now. Probably chicken out and use it as a middle name.
