  • Lisa

    They suck.

  • LuckyL

    Parents are getting way too hung up on cramming every aspect of their pasts/ families into their kids’ names.

  • emma

    I like all 3 of there kids firsts names James, Marion and Tabitha.

    Marion is really beautiful, but Tabitha???????? poor girl……..

  • taylorswiftfan

    Did they give birth to babies or my great grandmothers???? I really don’t know. Sounds like they were going for Harry Potter character motif.
    I wish their family the best though. Those babies are blessed :)

    Congrats on the birth of the healthy twins. Marion is an old fashion name but I like it and Tabitha, I know two but I like both young ladies. Good solid names. I’m glad they didn’t make them rhyme like Sara and Cara, I don’t like twins’ names like that.
    They need their own identity.

  • k

    yea marion is nice… but tabitha? and those middle names?!

  • M

    Serial killer name.. Tabitha.. Poor girl. The Ring baby.

  • http://Israel Lisa rose

    i’m feeling so sorry for Tabitha… her twin sis has such a way BETTER name…..

  • http://Israel Lisa rose

    i think the best names for twins (boy and a girl, not two girls!) are Daylen and Marliy… you know, the two best Bob’s’ (the singers) ever…
    if i’ll ever have twins i’ll named them that…….. its so cool and cute! lol (((::::::

  • jess

    tabitha is probably one of the worst name picks EVER.

  • L**

    Absolutely Awful names. Ugh

  • anon

    @Lisa rose: you might want to spell those correctly. i assume you mean dylan and marley?

  • WHy

    OMFG them names are horrible i feel sorry for the babies

  • http://Israel Lisa rose

    @anon: YES! this is what i meant….. i’m suck when its comes to spell!!!! lol

  • BethJ

    @Lisa rose:

    Do you mean Dylan and Marley?

  • charlene

    Congrats to them! hhmmm i was really looking forward to knowing what they had called their daughters – i loved their son James Wilkie’s name.
    It seems i’m one of the few who feels sorry for the one they named Marion and delighted that they chose the adorable Tabitha for the other one. But seriously – Hodge and Elwell???? They’re such hideous names for little girls – i agree with whoever it was who said that people are getting way too obsessed with cramming family names onto their kids, however ugly or gender-inappropriate. And why did poor Tabitha get only one middle name and her sister got two? Loretta is hideous but at least its feminine and evens out Elwell a bit. Tabitha is so cute but it does need a lighter middle name to soften it up a bit. Tabitha Hodge is just cruel. But going just by the first names, James, Marion and Tabitha sounds sweet enough as a sibling-set!

  • http://Israel Lisa rose

    @BethJ: yes! i want to name them Dylan and Marley!!! its cool and cute! LOL

  • alexa mackenzie

    Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick Tabitha Hodge Broderick I think the twins names are lovely. Unlike the other celebrity twins recently born. Dolly Charlie Rex Juno Max Bob John Gus Jax Jaid Journey Jesse D*Lila Star Jesse James. I find Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick Tabitha Hodge Broderick better names then Rebecca twins Dolly rebecca rose Charlie Tamara tulip.

  • Nahla

    I LOVE Marion……….but well, Tabitha?…… comment.

  • dani

    Absolutely horrifyingly disgusting names….why do these stars continue to wanna torture their children this way. So many gorgeous girl names and whyyyyyyyy?

  • charlene

    @ Peter Parker- The fact that i am typing this should tell you that i am in fact alive – therefore i have a life, however much that probably bothers you. Like the others, I was discussing the twins’ names what with this post being about that and all – but what’s YOUR purpose here? Are you some crazed SJP fan who can’t stand criticism of any part of her life? Or do you just randomly look through all of the boards on Just Jared and write “get a life” for kicks? Seeing how you didnt write anything relevant to the subject of the post, i think it must be because of the latter reason and in that case – re-examine your own life, Spiderman-freak.

  • Violette

    Oooooo :s why?! They’re really old fashioned names, Marion is ok, but Tabitha? and Elwell sounds like a name out of Lord of The Rings.

  • Nathaniel

    Congrats to the new parents

  • eliza

    Wonderful news. Very happy for them.

  • aNDREW

    I don’t understand why have these twins with surrogate. With all the children that could be adopted. I would have understood if they didn’t have already a child. anyway children are always a blessing.

  • KyTOy

    Marion Loretta?!?!!! Oh dear! How horrific. JJ you have got to be kidding me, there’s no way she named one of the baby girls Marion Loretta!!! There’s just no way!! I mean that name would sound appropriate if the twins were born in like the 1850′s or something. Really?!?!! This can’t be real life!

  • kat

    those are cute & simple names!

  • http://isreal Mike

    @KyTOy: sad, but its TRUE!!!!!! at least its better them Tabitha Hodge…….lol

  • slj

    Matthew is so gross he looks like a perv he’s so weird i feel sorry for those kids..

  • tori

    Was the surrogate his mistress?

  • saidnowww

    I like Tabitha. It’s a really cute name. Marion sounds like an elderly lady and I don’t like that name at all. I knew they would go with old fashion names, but Marion is almost worse than Vivienne. Adding Parker for sarah would have been nice, but all those other family names are just silly.

  • Peach

    Names are OK. Are they using Marion (masculine spelling) instead of Marian? I have a female friend who’s spelling is Marion (a family name) – so it’s not that unusual.

  • TWPumpkin

    I hope these two are better looking then their hippy fugly son James is.

  • Jeanie

    I know a Tabitha who is so sweet, the name just fits her, she is a little fashionista too, so I see this totally for SJP’s daughter, and the name Marion ….well that is my mother in laws name and she is 80, so I have mixed feelings about that one, but Tabitha is a beautiful name :)

  • lakers fan in boston

    lol tabitha
    i didnt no ppl still used that name lol
    marion isnt that bad, tabitha is way worse =p

  • janejax

    Guess I am the only one who likes Tabitha, yeah she’s a teenage witch but Marion is an old lady name. Marion the LIbrarian – Music Man

  • Anna

    Old lady names.

  • Daisy


  • cindy

    I love Tabitha but uggh I hate Marion!

  • Zoz

    Perfect …..great you sjp.

  • CAt

    I like the name Marion, reminds me of Marion Cotillard or Maid Marian. Tabitha on the other hand is alright.

  • peter puker

    All….just ignore Peter Parker….Peter Puker…..Peter P e c k e r….Mr Horse…Mr Peach…whatever he calls himself these days…..

    He is a freak of celebrities. You can find him all over the place regarding Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.

    He really needs to re-examine his own life for sure! LOL

    People have the right to discuss the new baby names whether anyone likes the comments or not,

  • Henny

    Ewww, FUGLY! those names are just AWFUL!

    Maybe Sarah really reallly liked “Bewitched ” but someone ought to tell her that naming a real child Tabitha is simply hideous.
    And Marion is only a step up from that,, straight out of the 1800′s.

    Do these idiot celebrities forget that the babies they name are going to grow up one day and really hate their parents for the fuggo names they choose?

  • Tabitha

    wow…. everyone is so rude. My name is Tabitha, and everyone I meet likes my name. People need to get a life, how would you feel if eveyone was like “That’s your name? Wow… poor you.” :/

  • Daph

    Just wondering if the babies actually belong to Mathew’s mistress? He and SJP never talked about having any more kids.
