When naming triplets or multiples it is fun to make the names cohesive with a theme. Below are a few fun ways to keep the names similar, but still individual.
Give Your Triplets an A, a B and a C name. For instance, Addison, Blake, and Casey (I chose these three names because I believe they are all gender neutral). Anyway, having A,B, C names also allows for you to decorate the nursery in a fun ABC theme. With triplets, especially when there are two genders, it may be difficult to find a gender neautral decorating theme. Doing the alphabet is fun, educational and gender neutral!
It may be fun to do all gender neautral names for your triplets…that way you could choose names without finding out the sex of each!
A few suggestions:
Gender neutral A names: Adrian, Addision, Addi, Alexis
Gender neutral B names: Bailee, Blake, Blakelee, Brayden
Gender neutral C names: Cameron, Casey, Cayden, Collin
2. Choose a theme in Nature
Choose a theme in nature for your children’s names. For instance, trees or flowers.

3. Months of the year names.
Okay, I realize this may sound a bit cheesey. But, there are some beautiful names of the month, especially for girls. Now, take into consideration how much it stinks for triplets to share one birthday. By giving your children month names, you can also designate one month during the year that is special for them. For instance, during the month of April, one of the triplets (whose name is April) gets to choose the games during game-night, can have a special day out with Mommy or Daddy, and gets first choice on treats!
Monthly Baby Names: June, Januaray, April, May. Perhaps new spellings would be snazzy- try “Mae” or Apryl.
4. First letter theme.
I believe this is probably one of the most common themes when naming triplets. Choosing one letter, such as M for each name. For instance, Max, Mallory and Makayla. You could (of course) do this with every letter of the alphabet.
5. Same ending sound.
This is a good way to connect the names and make them different through nicknames. For instance, Jackson, Madison, and Benson are all ending in “son”, but the shorter versions give them a unique sound. Jack, Madi and Ben are most likely what you would call your triplets.
Other common ending suggestions:
Madison, Jackson, Benson, Davidson, Addison- ending in “son”
Bailey, Bentley, Kailey, Hailey, Carley, Finley- ending in “ley”
When naming your multiples, find a way to keep them unique but related! Best of luck, and congrats!
