Inspired by Mama to One's announcement, I thought I'd share that we have named our boys. (With the right to change our minds at some point, I guess! But it sure feels settled.) These are the names we considered back maybe a week after we'd learned that there were two instead of one (at 14 weeks), and I was just starting to make a little progress through the initial shock. When my husband paired two of the names from our boy list and tossed them out as possibilities while we were lying there in bed one morning, I immediately latched onto them (and that's when I started my, "It's okay if they're twins as LONG AS they're boys, not girls" bargaining/coping!)<br><br>
Well, we found out last week that they are boys and we are planning to name them Noel and Linus.<br><br>
Later I told Joe that I think of twin A (on my right side, vertex and currently closest to the cervix) as Noel, and twin B as Linus. His eyes got big and he said he's been thinking the same thing. So even that part seems settled, and I definitely think of them "by name" when they are moving.<br><br>
We have middle names and they are pretty firm but they are not set in stone.<br><br>
I really like the interplay of Ns and Ls in both names, and that they feel like a set (to me) without being particularly "matchy."<br><br>
Noel Patrick was our first choice for a boy name last pregnancy (we ended up with a girl) and this time, I was leaning more toward Linus Patrick. But with the twin boys, we have the opportunity to use both names. (We won't give them both Patrick as a middle name, though. That probably will go to Noel, since my husband's middle name is Patrick and my middle name is Noelle--the thought of both our middle names combined in our son's name is nice. Linus may get my father's name as a middle name, unless there's another name that makes even better sense aesthetically to us...)<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Those are great names! I wish I could think of one boy let alone two!

I like these names a lot! I wish I could come up with a boys name that DH and I both agreed on.
