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?

Thomas Richard and Henry (aka Harry)

Finnan, Corran and Seamus

Hamish and Lionel

Rayne and Trevor

I realise that none of these are particularly weird names but I think they are rather funky combinations grin

Thomas, Richard and Henry?! How is that odd? A very mundane set of names imo...

LOVE Caspar and Milo! I was in a park the other day and a mum was yelling "Zebedee! Zebedee!!! come here NOW!!!" I also worked with a doctor called Buzz. Not a nickname, not an abbreviation (although not sure what it would be for anyway....). He was spectacularly humourless. Unsurprising really imo.....

Faith, Hope and Kevin was a particular favourite of mine from an MN thread a while back.
