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?

I wish I'd come across Kestrel before I had DD2.

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.

Melody, Willow and Storm. Hippy-ish family.

I don't know if its unusual but it is fabulous...Beatrix, Juniper, Romilly, Coraline and Pippa. I don't personally know them, it's from a blog I follow!

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

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).

Pebble and Bobby.

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

HoneyandRum Sat 23-Feb-13 09:37:45

I know right now sibs called Loris (boy) and Cina (Sina) girl. The names are Italian, there's a famous Italian racecar driver called Loris. Also Thorin, Zander and Zoe (Thorin is named after Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit). smile

Oh I love this thread! Unfortunately I don't know anyone this cool sad.

HoneyandRum Fri 22-Feb-13 23:52:08

I knew of sibs called Bodica and Caractacus.

Also Dimitri and Evangelista.

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.

Rhubarbgarden Fri 22-Feb-13 23:26:44

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.
