  • I am a twin, and I thing that's just the stupidest thing I ever heard. It's as if the parents couldn't decide on 2 names they liked, only one, and couldn't decide how to spell it either! These parents only prepared for one baby - and now treat their two as if they're one in the same. My identical twin and I are not one person, never have been, and it's just plain stupid to treat these two as if they're not individuals.
    Save confusion in your classroom and give the girls a little individuality: link their middle names to their first names and call them by each by their first/middle combo - whether the parents do or not.

  • That's sad. Seriously, give them their own name. It's like all the George Foremans.

  • Whoa that's weird. I have twins and their names are totally different.

    Answer by twinmama2five at 9:31 AM on Aug. 30, 2010

  • Wow. They sound exactly the same - what were the parents thinking?

  • oh God, I hate when people don't realise that twins are different. I am a twin and my name is Ashley and my sister's name is Amelie which sound kind of similar and we still hated that as kids!!

    It's like people don't allow their twins to be different from each other!

  • Oh my goodness, I hate when people do matchy, matchy twin names!!! My twins have 1st names that are kinda like twin names - Robert and Roger, they were named after their great grandfathers and we don't call Robert by his 1st name.
