Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell have welcomed their twin daughters. The girls are named Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip.
It’s an interesting duo. While Rose is among the most common botanical baby names, I’ve never heard of a Tulip. Rebecca and Tamara are graceful in the middle spot – Rebecca after mom and Tamara after Rebecca’s sister. As for Dolly and Charlie? They’re awfully cutesy nicknames, but they’re balanced out by the rest of the names. Apparently, Charlie honors Jerry’s brother and Dolly is for Dolly Parton.
I’m not sure about the connection between Ms. Parton and the happy couple, but it’s worth noting that her full name is Dolly Rebecca.
Overall? I wouldn’t add them to my favorites list, but I find them strangely appealing. Too bad they didn’t go for Dorothy Rebecca Rose and Charlotte (or Caroline) Tamara Tulip. That pairing would be perfection.
