Ideas for names for twins?

I'm having twins but do not know the sexes yet. Any ideas on names. I want my babies to have 2 middles names since it's a tradition in my family.

  • DH is an identical twin, he hated being dressed alike, and they both are so glad their names don't start with the same initial. He said it's really important to do whatever you can to help them know they are two independent people, because so many people lump them together. Oh, and he says, they hated the matching outfits thing.

  • Without knowing something about your name preferences I can't really make any specific recommendations, but I do think that the rhyming/similar names for twins is lame lol. I think they should be named without regard for what sounds cute when said together.

    2 boys: Micah & Elijah

    2 girls: Heidi & Sadie

    boy & girl : Micah & Heidi

  • I would avoid cutesy 'twin' names. They will be referred to as 'the twins' or 'so-n-so's twin' for ever. AT LEAST give them individual names! lol. I grew up with a Kevin and Devin. it was awful!

  • I like unique names and really girly names for girls. But I also like some vintage names. I guess I'm a hard namer. Lol.

  • Lol. I hate matchy twin names I'm Skyla and my twin brother is Sebastian. It isn't too matchy but I didn't like even having the same first letter.

  • Same first letter is one thing. 'set' or rhyming is just sad. lol.
    Bonnie and Clyde. lol.
