Wednesday List: Name Brangelina's New Additions

By Liz Kelly

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and soon-to-be born twins Womb and Raider. No? (Getty Images)

Yesterday when news started leaking that supermom Angelina Jolie had checked herself into a nice Nice hospital to await the scheduled arrival of babies five and six to the Brangelina brood, editor Nancy and I starting batting around potential names for the lucky soon-to-be doted-upon-by-the-whole-world baby girls (at least we think they're girls -- Jack Black never confirmed that bit). Our names were, unprofessionally as is our wont, predicated on the hope that Jolie's jolie tots will enter the world two days hence, on July 4th -- Independence Day on this side of the Atlantic.

Here's what we came up with:

Yankee and Doodle
Dandy and 'works
Sparkler and Apple Pie
Freedom and Fry
Star and Stripe

Okay, maybe not. Perhaps something a bit more Francais:

Amelie and Asterix
Brie and Baguette
Jeri and Louise
Stupid and American

If only Angie would hold off until July 14th, we could concentrate on Bastille Day-related names: Marie and Antoinette, Madame and Guillotine, Le and Miz. No? Dommage.

Share your suggestions for Angelina and Brad's expected twins below. And, remember, they'll need to fit in nicely with these: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and the next in line: Seven.

I just had a shiver run down my spine, imagining Angie sending her brood off to bed in the evening, instructing her daughters, "Don't forget to kiss your brothers goodnight."

Well, anon, so do Arm and Barbeque, for that matter.

Perhaps something Frenchy that also celebrates the 4th? Pomme and Tourte? Maybe not; Gwyneth "the Insouciant One" Paltrow might think Brangelina was stealing her kid's name...Perhaps Liberté and Clochette?

Posted by: ASinMoCo | July 2, 2008 11:16 AM | Report abuse

I suggested Castor and Pollux a week or two ago (as part of my hope that Brad and Angie were stockpiling Cheetos to keep the other kids occupied after the twins arrive).

Helen and Clytemnestra
Mary-Kate and Ashley
Paris and Nicky
Charlotte and Emily (as in the Bronte sisters)
Sadie and Bessie (Delany sisters)
Betty and Judy (Haines / "White Christmas")
Daisy and Violet (Hilton / "Side Show")

I like the idea of naming one Brangelina just to confuse the press when reporting on the family and to confound Google searches.

Jesusa and the Anti-Christa. Except, since they're twins, Brad and Angelina keep getting the two of them confused - which leads to all kinds of wacky mad-cap antics.

Meanwhile, back in America, we get more reasons to blame the French, and their illegitimate love child with England, Canada, for all things wrong in the world.

In what was nothing short of an eerie coincidence, someone posted on another message board a request for our favorite baby names. At the time I had Pax in my boy list, and Shiloh in my girl list, with both being the intended names of my next offspring of either sex. Clearly Brangelina is stalking me.

So, to aid them again, gratis, I suggest the names Esme and Camille. Both names are French with Latin origins, with Esme meaning esteemed and often shown with an accent on the last e. Camille means an attendant at a religious ceremony--perhaps foreshadowing future Brangelina nuptials to help the economy...at least in the tabloids.

It's not the number, because face it, they can afford to support 6 kids. It's WHY she has such a large family the bugs the heck out of me. She is just doing it to prove to her dad that you can be a celebrity and a good parent. Except because she is having a herd to prove that, she is not a good parent.

Not to mention all the globe-trotting they do. Kids need stability, not a new home every few weeks. They have no friends outside the family becuase they move around all the time. They don't even have a favorite place to go hide becuase there is a new home to adapt to every month.

I henceforth will refer to Papa Pittster as Brad Pitt, starchitect. Or starchitect, Brad Pitt.

Sunnydaze, I think the Jelo brother, Oran and Lemon, is an urban myth. My granddad, in rural Ohio, swears he delivered twins by those names.

In the same tradition, a cousin says he's had more than one little boy in his practice named Espn. That's right. ESPN. Pronounced like Aspen, but with an E.

This is true, however: I attended elementary school with a pair of boy-girl twins (born in SE Asia) named Tik and Tok.

One of our favorite games while travelling as kids was to fly kleenex tissues out of the window. This was fun and easy because the AC of the time was the open car window.

Anyhow, one time we were speeding along the PA turnpike, eating up the road at a whopping 55 mph, when one of our tissues flew into a car behind us and into the driver's face. It was hillarious until we realized that we could have been causing a terrible accident.

Our mean Ps (parents) made us give up that game at once. (spoil-sports!)

Posted by: Curmudgeon | July 2, 2008 4:13 PM | Report abuse

OK, these comments on car games on the OP blog are killing me. Samples:

1) I just don't want to take the chance with little precious traveling. So I have the grandparents come to us.

2) I can't wait to play such games with my yet-to-be-created kids.

3) Yes, little precious and I are real. Why do you continue to mock me? I am just trying to do my best to protect and raise my child!

4) Kids like yours end up beat up in/after school or in rehab after they experience life on their own.

5) Again, you are mocking me and being cruel. My husband, the law enforment officer, will teach little precious all about the real world when the time comes.

6) Give it up. You are not fooling me.

7) You are mocking me again. I call my little precious that all the time because my child, and I have only one, is my little precious. And I said I "committed" a typo because I did not want the hall monitor or whoever else to criticize me for my misspelling or send me off to AA--whatever that is. Maybe some of you should be "committed."

8) Don't pay attention to those who "mock" you. They are just the MM's from OB. We used to have such a nice little blog before they came!

td and WDC,
it may well be an "urban myth," in the sense that the story has grown and morphed etc. But the twins here were real enough. They both played high school football well. Maybe they ended up with the names because of the story?
And, if you go to the Social Security death index, you can find examples of the name Oranjelo from the 1800's - before Jello, yes? http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/

No hits on Lemonjelo, but I am not sure how to spell it and he should not be dead yet as he is only a few years older than me and I like to think that I am still a pyt.

The "x" names are good. I'm thinking Flax and Axe. Then when Angie calls them it will be "Max, Pax, Flax and Axe"....sounds like a Cher song. Shiloh and Zaharah will have to have there own group, so I foresee an upcoming adoption from a French-speaking country like Martinique, Reunion, Congo, Cote Ivoire..something like that. And the kid will be named Phyllo, Farrah, or Farinah.
