Sibset of the Week: The Paphides

Caitlin Moran is a favourite writer of mine after I received her book How To Be A Woman, as a gift. The book was published in 2012, it went on to win Galaxy Book of the Year.

Caitlin is also a keen tweeter, and rather controversially, in 2014 her twitter feed became part of the set texts for A-Level English. Despite this, she is considered one of the most influential British journalists on twitter.

She married husband Pete Paphide in 1999, and the couple have two daughters together:

Dora, 2001

Eavie, 2003

The name Dora has been up and down in terms of ranking for the last few years, although the number of births has been steadily rising (up from 14 in 1996 to 30 in 2013) and she now ranks at #1148.

The name Eavie fares less well, despite sister Evie’s successful years including a stint in the Top 10 in 2008-2010, having last ranked in 2011 at #4764.
