This from MomLogic:

"Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are delighted to announce the healthy arrival of their two daughters at 3:58 PM on June 22 in Ohio. Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick weighed 5 lbs, 11 oz and Tabitha Hodge Broderick weighed 6 pounds. Both Hodge and Elwell are family names on Parker's side. The babies are doing beautifully and the entire family is over the moon."

Sarah Jessica is known as a style tastemaker.  So where do her little girls' names fall within style trends?  Well, neither Tabitha nor Marion currently makes the Top 100 in any state in the U.S.; both names have been more popular in the past than they are today. And both names belonged to characters on ABC televsion series in the 1970s -- Marion was famous as the TV mom on Happy Days, while Tabitha was the name of the daughter in the slightly earlier series Bewitched and its later spinoff Tabitha. What do you think of these unusal choices? Can Marion shed its grandmptherly image? Can Tabitha break its assocaition with Bewitched?
