Did you consider rhyming/cutesy names? - Page 2

post #21 of 43
Not rhyming, but names that somehow went together.

I was SURE i was having twin boys. Positive. Had the names ready....Michael Paul and Heck, something John. It's been a long time! THen we had two girls. Surprise! We had only picked one girls name. It took a couple of days, then we went with Elizabeth Ann and Nicole Marie, teh Elizabeth, Ann and Maire being their grandmothers names.


So, nothing cute about it. Cept the 3 youngest had severe speech problems. So, one became 'E' and the other 'Nik', which evolved into Nikki and Lizzi, almost cutesy rhyming names!







Oh, and as soon as they did talk, they told us, often, that those were NOT their names. Their names were......









John and Mike.

I really didn't want names that started with the same letter because I knew I would always be reversing the names and calling them the wrong thing.

We also didn't want to go the cutsie rhyming way because that's just not us. We orginally picked out Ella and Norah but when they were born, Norah just didn't fit and after two days went by we decided on Isabel.

So, we have Ella Rose and Isabel Alice. Actually, Ella and Isabel go together a little more than we realized because it turns out that everyone lumps it together and says Isabella and then they are confused because it's only one name for two people... Their middle names are taken from their grammy's names .

I have i/g Charlotte Ann and Caroline Lee.(19 months)
I also have 2 singletons, Abigail who is 9, and Josephine who is 5.
I like older names. I already have other girls names picked out for the future ones not yet concieved. Dh would like to have a boy.

Not into the cutesie names myself. We already had 2 girls so I was pretty sure that we'd have at least one girl in there if not two, but honestly I expected it would be b/g twins. We ended up with 2 boys instead! Regardless, dh & I couldn't settle on names before hand so we waited until they were born. If we had only had one boy his name would have been Finn Roan, so we decided to break up that name and ended up with Finn River & Roan Xander. All our kids have Irish first names, so we are following a theme I suppose. Now, if I had had b/g twins, I would have loved to have named them Xander & Anya, but dh wouldn't have that. That was more of a joke, really (those were characters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer who played a couple), but I did really love both those names and had we had a girl she most likely would have been an Anya. And I rallied hard core to use the name Elijah as a mn but dh just wouldn't agree. So I'm a bit sad that I'll never have an Anya or Elijah.

Since we now know we are having 2 boys they wil probably be called

Owen Jeffrey and
Kieran Turner

Although we reserve the rate to change if the names don't suit after we meet them.
Congratulations Jody! I will send mellow boy vibes. I love the names (It is Beth, in case you didn't know!)

I am in a totally different catagory. One of my multiples is adopted. My son is 19 months and my daughter is 23. We didn't pick our daughters name. Her birth name is Jennifer. And our son is Benjamin. So we have Ben and Jen. Or Bennifer when someone thinks they are being funny

When people ask us about our "twins," I find myself going into way too long a story because I don't want anyone to think that we *chose* rhyming names. So I just need to get over it and say, "Yes, they are twins."

I would NEVER call them Bennifer! Thanks for the mellow vibes. I am half sick of the pitying looks already. The, "oh, 2 boys? Better you than me" look. As if 2 infant girls would be any less hectic. This I know I already know I HAVE a high energy DD!

How are Ben and jen doing by the way? Any more news since last we saw one another?

mamajody: I got the same reaction from people when we found out we were having boys! Though they are more physically active than dd was at this age, their personalities are way mellower.

People always have to comment, don't they?

Someone should take my social justice girls scout badge away for saying this, but I really think two boys would be easier than two girls.

Jen is actually sitting on my lap as I type. She came home yesterday Both kdis are doing great. We are exhausted

WOW! Congrats Beth! Now you are getting a taste of life with a girl! Ben is soooooo laid back, I can just imagine the shock! How's Kir holding up as the proud daddy of twins?

Thanks! They are 3....will be 4 in October.

I was like many who posted about "knowing" the sex of the twins. I just knew I was having twin boys or maybe b/g twins, but no, we got two little girlies.

We also now have a ds who just turned 1. His name is Cole

We avoided rhyming/cutesy/similar at all costs...

Names were a huge challenge, but after going to twins club meetings, we were very sure we knew the names we DIDN'T want...lol

Unfortunately, in milky confusion, we gave them cutesy initials....oops

Baby names!

It was so hard for us to come up with names. I loved Madeleine Pearl, after our grandmothers but alas, we found out we were having twins, then identical boy twins.
For a while we thought Waylon and Devon but got so many "Waylon and Willie" jokes that we finally agreed on Alexander Lee and Maximilian Tanner, Alex and Max.
But now we usually call them Aligator and Monkey or Gator and Moomers or whatever other silly name comes out.
There's no way I would have ever done rhyming names but I do like that they sound like they 'go together.'

We didn't rhyme. They're named after their grandparents - Sonia and Joseph

WE had alot of suggestions - cusety ones like adam and eve, jack and jill. Just didn't want to do that to them, yk?

I've met a lot of twins that had cutesy names - tim and kim for one example

Did you all think of sticking to the same first initial? Not quite rhyming... but....?
