My Husband and I are expecting twin girls in October and are stuck when it comes sticking to names or at least to a style we both like. Alberta is a name that has come up casually lately and for me was always a bit of a guilty pleasure, but I can't help but wonder why that is.
Alberta would perfectly honor me and my parents (last name B3rtram) and Alberta is also the name of a blues song we both love and listen to a lot at home by Eric Clapton. To top it all off, it actually fits with some other names that have been on our list and up for consideration, like Josephine, Theodora and Wilhelmina which were all at some point considered clunky, dated and grandmotherly but are now going back into style. I also like that it lends to a handful of lovely nicknames: Albie, Alba, Bertie, Bear, Birdie among others.
It would really be helpful if we could get some honest feedback on Alberta since we don't plan on announcing the names until we're 100% sure or, as it's looking like, after the twins are born.
Thank you in advance!
