Hello everyone! I was searching through news articles for some names of Valentines Day babies from years past when I found this fascinating story instead! I was so excited when I read this cool article and saw the absolutely wonderful names!
On Monday in New Jersey, identical twin sisters Stephanie Edginton and Nicole Montgomery gave birth to baby girls just minutes apart in the same hospital! Stephanie's baby girl was a little late in coming, originally due on February 5th. Nicole's baby girl was originally due on Valentine's Day but both babies made their arrival just under a week before February 14th. What special early Valentines these girls are! I think it's so cool that these cousins will share a birthday, just like their moms!
Stephanie and her husband welcomed their little girl named Cora Caron. Cora is a name that I considered for the Valentine's Day baby name list because of it's possible connection to the Spanish word for heart, corazon. Another possible meaning for the name Cora is "maiden" and it was ranked at #103 in 2014. (Read about similarly named New Years baby Coraline.)
Nicole and her husband named their baby girl Louisa Nicole (I saw one article where it was spelled Luisa so I'm not sure which is correct). Louisa is a lovely name that I've featured a few times. I featured it in my article about author's names in honor of Louisa May Alcott, one of my favorites! Louisa is a German name meaning "renowned warrior". It's only just made it back onto the top 1000 in 2014 and is currently at #973.
Cora and Louisa are such swoon-worthy names! I was so thrilled when I saw them! They have a similar cute, vintage style and would make great sibling names, in my opinion! They're very sweet cousin names too, though. Both Cora and Louisa are featured on my fashionably old-fashioned girls names list.
Congratulations to Cora and Louisa's families on your lovely baby girls!
