Calling all babyname nerds! Help me name this twin! - Page 2

post #21 of 120

There are lots of awesome suggestions here!  I can't think of more that would be better.  However, a word of caution when naming twins:  when you take them to the dr or the dentist or any place that you have to write their names down, having two babies with long-ish names can be very tedious.   We named out girls Gabrielle Grace and Jillian Rose.  I absolutely adore their names, but it can be a bit tiresome when filling out forms.  You can't go with nicknames cuz you have to write their legal names.  Small consideration, but something I didn't really think about and may be important to someone.  Sometimes I wish we named them Amy and Mya like I wanted!  lol

Thessaly (region of Greece) (you could call her Tess)

Thalia (favorite college professor who was from Greece) (you could call her Lia)

 

less relevant but I think they work:

Rosaline

Marisol

Juniper

Opal

Ida (you could have a complicated middle name to go with it)

 

Hey, glad to read this thread and I hope you're feeling great!

Did I misread you to say you wanted Greek names?  I think I did.  Sorry!  Now you know why the first two are so Greek-ish.  I still like the other names on my list, but here is the one I think is best.

 

Marisol.  Calliope and Marisol.  It has a meaning associated with the sun.

edited to say: why did I include Ida?  Duh, that would never work w/ Ada.  I'm just off tonight (Ida is my favorite name though, so I hope somebody uses it someday (did not work w/ my last name for my own daughter))

I like Emma, Margaret, Elisa, Nicola, and Rheann.

I think with one long name you'd be better going with a short name.  How about Thea?  Thea and Calliope sounds nice.

post #26 of 120
Evie- eve for short.
Annabella- Anna or bella for short.
Ida
Irah
Iva
Holly
Hailey
Heidi
Kristina
Melody
Grace

Ps didn't read through your list of dos and don't so if none fit the criteria sorry innocent.gif

If we would have had DDs, they would have been Nora and Stella.

Thanks for all your ideas and opinions! We probably will use a longer name name, since both the other girls have multi syllable names, but Im totally into using a long name that has a short nickname. 

 

I like Beatrix, but DH vetoed it. :( He doesnt want to have A (Adaline) B (Beatrix) and C (Calliope)

 

He likes Evelyn and Alice from the list I posted earlier :)

 

Philomom, we went through all the muses and couldnt find one that we could agree on. 

 

We cant use Ida, Iva, or Ava considering that we call DD Ada most of the time. 

 

 

Im Holly, with sisters Hayley and Heather and sister in law Krystina, so those are pretty much all out. 

 

I do like Jocelyn, Matilda, Elisa, and Lauryl. 

 

Anymore ideas are always welcome!!!

You have lots of great suggestions so far!  I love old-timey names too. :)

 

DD1 has one of those gender neutral first names (Reese Elisabeth), but it fits her so well.

 

DD2 however, is super girly and a little old-timey.  Layla Violet.  We get lots of compliments on it. :)

 

Some other names I like (most have probably already been mentioned)

 

Caroline

Sophie

Amelia

Charlotte

Norah

Anna

Annie

Blaire

Audrey

Aubrey

Ruby

Camilla

Olivia

Vivian/Vivienne

Rose

post #39 of 120

I'll throw in Seraphina (my DD's name). We call her Phina for short. She's Seraphina Louise. 

post #40 of 120
Our DDs are Danika (Dani) Marley and Elanora (Ela) Kay. Like you, I prefer longer names that can be shortened smile.gif

Good luck!
