We have waited such awhile for the love of a child

But our path faced strong headwinds

Our troubles have passed and now, at long last

Our joy doubled, we’re expecting twins!!!!

-Samantha & Kevin

    With your heritage I would like to suggest “Beckett and Kate”. But the names are only such a small part of the journey you both are on. Sincerest congratulations!

    How exciting!!! Congratulations to you both, and best wishes for two wonderful bundles of joy!! When are you due? I will try to think of some good name suggestions…however, I am sure you have some beautiful names from around the globe swirling around as possibilities!

    CONGRATS!!!! So happy for you two.

    OK…I have one name to suggest:

    Ciso’s Nepalese for ‘cold beer’. Who doesn’t like a cold beer! He/She would be set for life!!!

    If it’s a boy and a girl: Jackson and Julia. My son Jackson would have a sister named Julia if we could have had another one.

    My husband and I have picked Iona for the daughter we are expecting right now. Its the sacred Island in Scotland where the book of Kells was started. My eldest daughters name is Daytona.
    When we were picking out boys names we had Stirling after Stirling Castle in Scotland.
    I also like the name Ireland, Collum, and Irish.
    We are in the habit of naming our children after places we’ve been and loved. I love naming children after cities and places its a great trip when they get older 😉
    Good Luck and Congrats this is so awesome I’m overjoyed for you both!!!

    Many heartfelt congratulations to both of you! As a parent of 2 college-aged adults it took us 5 yrs of fertility treatments to eventually get pregnant. Whatever names you choose will be personal but we tried to incorporate our parent’s (names) for middle names to keep that connection to their roots! Keep us posted along the way!

    Sadie, Sara, Clara.
    recommendation though, I named all 3 of my kids after I saw them. I picked names then changed them after the babies were born.. for example, my middle child was so tiny and petite I decided to give her a tiny name (Amy).

    Just don’t blend the two of your names together to make a new name….Samevin? or Kevmantha? That’s just wrong…and don’t go with the ‘popular-for-now’ names like Snookie or Seth Rogen…Go with more traditional names like Lilith and Phillip…that way you can call them Phil and Lil…nice. Congrats you two!

    Congratulations, how amazing that someone with such a vivacious and insightful spirit is going to be a mother :). I personally have a lot of unique names for girls picked out but my husband likes “normal” names. I love Avonlea, Vivienne, Margaret, Lenore/Eleanor, Morgan, Jadis, and Juliet, some of which are inspired by stories that I love. I also like Keilana because it means “gloriously calm.” I personally suggest inventing a name that doesn’t sound outlandish but is something obviously original. One tip, though; coming from someone who has grown up with a unique name, it helps so much if it is spelled in a way that is easy to pronounce!

    My only tip is know that what ever name you pick was picked with love and joy and pay NO attention to comments from others about the names that you have loved and chosen. And that includes your own children. My beautiful daughters name is Isabel Amanda. At 6 yrs old she asked how old she had to be to change her name, I said 18. She said that she was sorry, but she did not like it and was going to change it to MATILDA!! Hahaha! Yes, Oh yes said, that is a much better choice! She is now 16 and loves her name. Enjoy!

    Sam with all the places you traveled you surely fell in love with one or two places. you can name them after that place or people who have inspired you throughout life. Congrats to both of you. personally ancient Greek names for Boys or Girls would be perfect

    Oh, and most of all, CONGRATS!
    You have traveled some amazing roads…and quite well, I might add. I’m sure you’re going to find that parenthood is one of the most wonderful, unique, difficult roads you can take, but I know you’re fully equipped with 4-wheel drive! Like all of the endeavors you’ve met head-on, I’m sure you’ll do amazing as a mommy!

    As the mommy to two wonderful little ones, I am always hoping that someone will create a travel show that features the real chaos of traveling with children! Would that be your next move??

    Please do so! I want my children to be well-traveled, but the thought of traveling with two little ones kind of freaks me out!

    Firstly, congratulations!! Such exciting news… I love the name Finn for a boy, but it’s becoming sort of trendy right now I suppose. For a girl, I love names from yesteryear like Josephine and Emma.

    I’ve grown up with a unique and usually male-name (but am female). It’s kept life interesting and is always an easy conversation piece when first meeting someone. 🙂

    I’m so happy for you! I thought perhaps you’d given birth when you took time off. I agree with those who suggest names from places you’ve been. But as one who works with a database and has to add titles and gender, it is extremely frustrating trying to add gender to some of today’s names. Don’t do that your children. Have fun!

    Everyone is giving you all of these trendy or worldly suggestions (which makes sense giving your travels).

    HOWEVER…you should also consider naming them something easily pronounceable in case they’re ever sitting at an aiport being paged for a gate re-assignment or seat upgrade. It’s so sad when a name is butchered over an intercom.

    With that said – want to say congrats and that I’m so happy for you both! What a fantastic blessing!

    With Travel being engraved in your veins, and stamped upon your heart, your beautiful children would be well suited with Country themed names! For boys, I really like Dublin, Kazakh (pronounced Ca – zick) (after Kazakhstan) Jordan, Egypt, or Morocco. For Girls, I like London, Paris, India, Ireland, Zealand, or China : ) Congratulations Samantha Brown! You have truly inspired me as a young boy, and now that I’m older, I’ve been all over the world… and it wouldn’t have happened without your inspiration!

    Congrat’s you two!!! Some names that are a little more worldy (at least to me) Artimis and Joanna. But mostly – congrats and good luck with chossing names that are just right for you! Don’t forget to try yelling them out the front door – if it’s too much of a mouthfull – you may want to reconsider – lol! 🙂 Congrats again and enjoy the blessing of parenthood!

    Congratulations to both of you! What a gift. I’ve always been partial to family names, I gave my first son my maiden name as his middle name Bennett-ironically it means blessing and I never knew that, and my second son bears my mother-in-law’s maiden name, Doran, which means “peace in the home.” My best advice is to make sure the initials don’t spell anything bad, our third son’s initials spell out AWW…so cute!

    Thought so. That is fantastic. It’s the best part of marriage. No. Really it is. 🙂 Congratulations!!

    For a gal named Samantha Elizabeth, Tabitha and Adam would be traditional but I named ours for my Dad’s best friend (daniel leonard) because we pass leonard as a middle name through five generations, and our daughter for our best friends (kelly rene). Pick names that make you happy and that you know they won’t regret. Then give them a nickname they can live with. (beautiful boo for my daugher, buddha for my son). It’s alll good. Mazeltov!!

    I don’t have any names. I started thinking of ones like Molly, or Lotty because they’re cute to me–and ones like Rufus, or Napoleon because that would be cute for a boy to me, but then I started feeling like… Maybe Holiness, or Peace, but then are we ever sure if they are going to be cute, or holy? Maybe then Hope is a good one.
    Obviously, I’ve never had to decide.
    Anyway, I’m glad for you that you have a family!
    My big question is:
    When are you going to be back on travel channel, or are you pursuing new things for a career?

    Congratulations to you both! Your life will be so blessed with your beautiful babies. As the mother of identical triplet boys (and a daughter who’s one year older than the boys) I can’t stress enough the importance of naming them and raising them as two separate individuals. My “babies” are now young adults and have each told us separately how much they appreciated not having a name that rhymed with their siblings, matching first letters of their names…nothing the same. Also, since their first birthday, they each have gotten their own birthday cake. It’s *not* the path of least resistance, Samantha…it’s easy to get caught up in the “twin” moments and fun part of having twins. Years later, they’ll THANK you for every photo you took of each of them separately, not with their twin, and for every time you made that one child–not “the twins”–feel special. Again, congratulations…you’re going to have such fun. Really!

    CONGRATS!!!! 🙂 but it’s hard to be happy when everyone around you is getting pregnant and you’ve been trying over 10yrs and no babies. IVF is so expensive, adoption is difficult, surrogate mothers are even more expensive, you run out of options. Then your faced everyday with celebs and the battle to conceive when in the long run they have money for all the options and well In fact have babies wether it’s through IVF, surragate or adoption. it’s a guarantee. Then there are friends who get preganant at the drop of a pin, then there are the friends who don’t have much money but the have this amazing luck to have a sister who will have IVF, through one round and end up having twins. I am nor rich enough or lucky enough, probably never well be. Uncontrolable crying is best I can sum up to how I feel when I hear a celebs pregnancy and think how wonderful for them to have the money to make their dreams come true or friend who just gets lucky, has her sister give birth to twins, I think how wonderful it must feel to have that kind of luck. I keep smiling, congratulating and then cry at night in bed, the bathroom and avoiding questions of why I don’t have kids and never letting anyone know how I feel. Every second I see a child with his/her mother/father and feel so horribly sad that I will.never be so blessed and that god must really love them, I will never be someone’s mother, bad things just happen to me, god must not love me. I have still yet to find peace with it, to discover a new passion, another journey when my whole life was planning for motherhood, it’s like leaving a job you love for another job when there’s nothing that will compare to it. Ive watched a lot of travel shows and you do the most amazing job at it, you
    can see how much you love your job, you’re a natural born host. I beleive the show you did in New Orleans where the palm reader/psychic said you’d have twins and she was right. You are so blessed, lucky to have this precious cargo on this amazing journey, you will be an amazing mother, enjoy your journey, your babies, and your family, be happy.

    I just found out the good news on where I just happen to work in ATL. I couldn’t be happier for my Syracuse alum and your husband on the two new lives you will bring into the world.
    I have always been a big fan and miss you on the Travel Channel. You were so nice to send my 83 year old mother a B&W glossy of you and your autograph which she fondly keeps on her refrigerator door. I cannot wait to tell her your super fantastic news. Love you luggage line as well…..Blessings and much happiness!

    As a mom of fraternal twin boys who just turned 2, best of luck!! Twins are a blessing. It’s rough at first, nights and days mesh into one lump of never-ending sleepless warps of time. It gets easier and the love just grows. Now my days are filled with the boys endlessly climbing on and standing on furniture. Giggles when wrestling and shirtless belly bumping are a joy. I have a total of 3 children. My daughter,big sister Emery Elizabeth(5 yrs) and the boys Emerson Edward 5th and Eisley Ettienne. My husband and I can not wait to show them the world. Again-good luck!

    I had a son at 44 years old. I too waited a long time. I’m exhausted! He is great and the joy of my life at 4 years old. God Bless you and your family I wish I had your energy. Your children are lucky to have such a loving set of parents awaiting them.
    The finest thing you can do in life is to raise a good and happy person. As for names….Samsonite and Tourister leap to mind. 😉

    I would recommend naming both something that will easily roll off the tongue. I would also give each kid two middle names as I did with my daughter. If I use her full name, she knows she needs to stop whatever she is doing and listen.

    My daughter and I are big fans. She just reminded me that on one of your travel shows you had your palm read and you were told you would have twins one day. Neat!

    Congratulations I am so happy for you both. I have watched your show for years on the travel channel. My kids are grown
    now but tell new parents to do as much
    as you can with kids while they are
    young and enjoy them every minute.
    Most important is something i discovered
    is to keep a journal daily so you won’t forget everything that happens while they are growing up.

    Congratulations I am very very happy for you. I have missed seeing your shows on the travel channel. I was happy to see you back for the Trip of a Lifetime shows. It is so cool that you are going to take your babies along traveling with you. If I had to pick baby names for you a girl’s name I like would be Charlotte Amalie Brown. It is a pretty name and the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands. I like Felix for a boy.

    Hello, I’m a big fan of your travel tutorials. Here are two ideas for your twins names, Henry for the boy, and Miriam for the girl, names from the Indiana Jones saga. They were great travelers.

    I have always loved the name Malachi and it could go either direction. It’s also one of the books in the bible. I also love the name Macenzee and there are about a hundred spellings…lol Good luck on having twins…I hear they are twice the fun!

    We named our daughter Kaileigh because in Scotland/Ireland, it is a “musical celebration” (spelled differently, though:). I look forward to a new show, “Traveling with Kids”…I will watch!! 🙂 😉
