Naming the twins - Page 2

post #21 of 22
That link is really interesting bigfoot! We have settled (I think) on Oliver & Alice for our twins, but at first we only had Oliver and someone suggested Olivia to me for the girl in a joking way. I love Olivia too, but there was no way I wanted to have Oliver & Olivia both, but I see that is on the list for girl/boy twins. Maybe I'm the weird one, but I don't get overly matchy names for twins, I definitely think names that go together make sense, but not ones that match too closely.

quinalla - i don't think you're weird. i'm of the same opinion as you. i would not want our twins to have such similar names. their nicknames might be the same, etc. i do joke about brandon/brenda like the 90210 twins, but that's actually not on our real-life list of options. i would like for them to be phonetically or thematically linked, but not rhyme or oliver/olivia style. 

 

naming twins is pretty tough. i was surprised to see what shows up as "common twin names" on the list bigfoot posted.
