The Bunch family is a pre-made family in The Sims 3 who resides in Sunset Valley. The family consists 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.
Interestingly, when the player first inherits a house in Maywood Lane, you can see Jack Bunch driving a Margaret Vaguester with his family (considering Jack's career at level 8 of the military career track). Strangely, Jack and Judy have brown hair, but all their children are blond.
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".
Bunch: a connected group or cluster; may also refer to the popular sitcom The Brady Bunch, whose central characters share some similarities with the family.
Jack and Judy may also be a reference to Jack and Judy Geller, the parents of main characters Ross and Monica Geller on the popular sitcom Friends. (Interestingly, a recurring secondary character on the same show had the surname Bunch).
