Ohhhh. I never thought about the name thing. I get that a lot. People will hear Ellie's full name (well, her full first name, she actually has a whole collection of names) and then they'll typically ask me to repeat it and some people will say, "Oh, that's so pretty." The only comment I think I've ever gotten about Lily's name is an elderly man on base who got a confused look and said, "That was my wife's mother's name." I got the impression that he was surprised to see a baby with a name his considered old fashioned. I'm gonna need to plan for ways to deal with that in the future now that they're old enough to understand.
I look 10 years younger than I am (as does dh), so I'm always asked how far apart my girls are in a judgemental tone. I also use the "1 minute" answer which usually works. Although, I do get people who then ask if they're twins. I had one woman who told me matter-of-factly, "They're not twins, but they're awful close." I just gave her a look and said, "They ARE twins." I don't get it. The girls are 3 lbs different and 1/2 an inch. How on earth could they be anything other than twins?
Then again, a friend of mine has two older girls who are 11 months apart. She said when they were younger, people always asked if they were twins. She didn't get it because one was very obviously bigger than the other. I told her I wished I could run into some of her idiots.
