The Bunch family is a pre-made family in The Sims 3 who resides in Sunset Valley. The family consists of Jack Bunch, his wife Judy and their four children Ethan, Lisa, Arlo and Darlene. Their last name is a reference to the television show "The Brady Bunch". They live on Peep's Peak at 16 Maywood Lane.

The Bunches seem to have a bit of a disastrous life what with four children doing many things at once and two working parents. Judy is a scientist, Jack is a formal Military man with an outgoing personality, Ethan is a popular teen around school, Lisa is described as a "childish bad girl" who is somewhat charismatic (though she doesn't have the trait), Arlo is a hyperactive kid who is difficult to restrain, and Darlene just wants attention and has already "broken a few bones" to prove it.

Strangely, Jack and Judy have brown hair, but all their children are blondes. It is possible they were adopted, or Judy dyed her hair brown, judging by her blonde roots. 

Onomatology

Bunch: A reference to the sitcom The Brady Bunch, whose central characters share some similarities with the family.

  • Jack: Hebrew for "Graced by God."
  • Judy: From Judaea, it might be also a diminutive of Judith.
  • Ethan: Comes from the Hebrew word "Eitan", which means "solid, enduring."
  • Lisa: Short for Elizabeth, meaning "my God has sworn" in Hebrew.
  • Arlo: It is of Old English (Harlow) origin, and the meaning is "barberry tree."
  • Darlene: a possible variation of "Darling".
