    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.

    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 (((::::::

    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!

    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.

    @ 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.

    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.

    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 Says:

    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!

    saidnowww Says:

    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.

  35. 35
    Peach Says:

    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.

    Jeanie Says:

    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 :)

    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 Says:

    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?

    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.” :/

    I think Tabitha is pretty but Marion is such an old lady name. I understand wanting to incorporate family members names but this is overboard!

    Maybe little Marion could hook up with Bob Sheen…ha ha ha

    Susie-Q Says:

    I don’t really like the name Marion. It does sound like an old lady name. I guess I am one of the few people who likes Tabitha. In fact, if I ever have a daughter, I am going to name her Tabitha.

  54. 54
    HA! Says:

    I love both names. Both are very ladylike and unique, but not crazy. I don’t know why people are getting hung up on the middle names. It’s perfectly normal to want to honor your family by giving your children names of relatives. I doubt they’re going to follow the “James Wilkie” route when addressing them. Can’t wait to see what they look like. They must be thrilled!

  55. 55
    Jean Says:

    Either name is fine. . . very old fashioned, but stable names. As for adding family names, I personally think that is a legacy to heavy for any child to carry. They can learn of family ancestory through family trees. When thinking of a child’s name you have to think of how kids nowadays will react. Is it a name they can make fun of? A name that is indicative of someone else, a president, stripper, murderer, etc.

    When I hear the name James Wilkie, I think of James Wilkes Booth, and not the child.

    But, as with most other responses, I agree, think of the child first going through life with those names, but at least there not as bad as some other names I have heard, celebrity and non-celebrity.

    anon Says:

    @LuckyL: Parents have always tried to cram family names into their kids’ names. I don’t think it’s getting out of hand, it’s just getting more noticeable with all the celebrity spawn. Long names aren’t out of the ordinary, either.

    Tabitha Hodge sounds kinda funny,but I think it flows..Tabitha Hodge Broderick.Marion..I’m not so sure how to pronounce it so idk..Loretta is nice.
