30+ Trios of Perfect Triplet Baby Names

·5 min read

It’s hard enough to choose the perfect name for one baby — but what about when you have to do it for three? That’s the dilemma facing the parents-to-be who are about to bring multiple bouncing bundles of joy into the world.

Naturally, triplets occur in about 1 of every 10,000 births; with fertility measures such as medication and assisted reproductive technology, the chance is much higher (approximately 30% of gonadotropin-assisted pregnancies are multiples, with up to 5% of those being triplets, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine). But no matter how your triplets came to be, there’s still the matter of what to call them once they get here. You want something that’s not too matchy-matchy, but still sounds coordinated; something that sounds great both alone and alongside sibling names.

These names sound good together, but what’s the common theme? They’re all Biblical! Alternatives: Elijah, Isaiah, Rachel

Thaddeus, Thea, and Thatcher

The connection between these is obvious: they begin with the same letter combo and have an old-fashioned appeal. Alternatives: Theo, Thora

Wren, Sparrow, and Lark

Bird names are on-trend and adorable – and as a bonus, they’re (mostly) gender-neutral! Alternatives: Dove, Teal, Robin

If you’ve got a garden of little girls, these blooming botanical names are sweet. Alternatives: Aster, Rose, Daisy

Chase, Blaise, and Wade

Did you notice the theme running through these active names? That’s right — they’re all verbs (well, if you spell Blaise as “Blaze”). Alternatives: Dash, Sway, Cruise (or Cruz)

Luna, Stella, and Orion

You can find triplet name inspiration anywhere … including the sky! Luna means “moon,” Stella means “star,” and Orion is the name of a constellation. Alternative names: Nova, Aurora, Apollo

Mason, Miles, and Millie

There’s just something that works harmoniously together with these three magnificent M-names. Alternatives: Max, Mila, Maisie

Lumi, Neve, and Eira

At first glance, these are three names that have little in common. But they’re perfect for winter babies — because each one means “snow!” Alternatives: Nevara, Yukio, Frost

Harlow, Ava, and Greta

The Old Hollywood glam is abundant in this shining trio of triplet names. For boys, you could try Charlie, Orson, and Clark. Alternatives: Bette, Audrey, Hedy, Ingrid

Willow, Briar, and Sage

There’s a decidedly cottage-in-the-woods, almost mystical feel to these three botanical names. Alternatives: Rowan, Alder

Avery, Emery, and Arlo
