Picking your child’s name is exciting, but it’s also quite tough too. I mean, that name’s gotta stick, right?
Well, imagine having to pick a name for all eleven of your children! These parents did just that, and they did it like bosses too…
Gwenny Blanckaert and Marino Vaneeno have had eleven children together so far, and they’re expecting another in April 2022.
But just how do you name all of those children?
I’d start running out of original ideas after 3, never mind twelve! So, I just don’t know how you’d do it. Unless of course, you’re this couple, and you come up with an extra special idea.
And people are (rightly so) very impressed…
This exraordinary Belgian couple decided that their kids will only share names that have the letters A, E, L, and X in them.
It’s not just me trying to guess the names of some of their children already, is it? Um, this is much harder than it seems...
The couple share 7 girls and 4 boys all together…
Well, until baby number twelve makes an appearance that is, and then it will be 5 boys.
And according to Gwenny, twenty-nine, who had her 1st child, Alex. at the age of sixteen, people often judge them when they’re out with their rather large herd.
“Sometimes we get strange looks. People ask if those are all our children and they frown. But I assure you that all our children are very polite and tidy,” she said, as per HLN.
And they even moved to a bigger house a couple of years ago.
“Going on vacation may not be an option, but two years ago we moved to a larger house on a site of three thousand square meters,” the mom continued to explain.
“There is plenty of room to play and the children can romp to their heart’s content.”
But, will there be any more after their twelfth baby boy? No. Although Gwenny says that there are 9 other letter choices, they’ve set the limit at twelve.
“The day that we sit around the table with twelve children, our family is complete,” Gwenny said, as per the Sun.
And now the moment you’ve been scrolling for… The names.
Their 1st born, who is thirteen, was named Alex, which was my 1st and only guess. Shocking, I know. And here’s the rest: Axel, twelve, Xela, eleven, Lexa, ten, Xael, 9, Xeal, 8, Exla, 5, Leax, 4, Xale, 2, Elax, 1, and 6-month-old Alxe.
What do you think baby number twelve is going to be named?
