B/G Twins

Hello all,

I am expecting boy girl twins, my husband and I are having trouble finding a name combo that we love. I have read through other forums and you all have such thoughtful advice, and I would love your help choosing our names.

-These will be our firsts, so no sibling names involved
-Ideally want them to start with different letters
-Do not want names to be too rhyme-y but want them to sound good together

We tend to favor older style names, below I included some names we have considered to help you get a better idea of our style

[name_m]Boy[/name_m] names we are considering (in no particular order):
-Charles (Charlie)
-Malcolm (Mack)

[name_f]Girl[/name_f] names we are considering (in no particular order):

**we are definitely open to more name options, and would love some B/G combo ideas!

Thanks so much in advance!


I think [name_u]Henry[/name_u] & [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] or [name_u]Finn[/name_u] & [name_f]Cora[/name_f] would be great sets!

Other combo ideas based on your existing lists:

[name_u]Charles[/name_u] & [name_f]Aila[/name_f]
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] & [name_m]Collin[/name_m]
[name_u]Finn[/name_u] & [name_u]Juniper[/name_u]
[name_u]Henry[/name_u] & [name_f]Ella[/name_f]

Other names that came to mind:




Congrats on your sweet twins! You have some great ideas so far! We also have similar styles so I hope this reply is helpful!

[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f] make such a distinguished, special set. I like the idea of [name_u]Mack[/name_u] and [name_f]Collie[/name_f]!

I also like [name_u]Charles[/name_u] and [name_f]Cora[/name_f] - the letters match but they don’t feel super matchy to me. [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] and [name_f]Cora[/name_f] are really sweet.

[name_u]Henry[/name_u] and [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] could be really cool with nicknames [name_m]Hank[/name_m] and [name_f]Dottie[/name_f]!

With [name_u]Finn[/name_u] (which I love), I’d suggest something equally short and cool. Maybe like [name_u]Finn[/name_u] and [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] or [name_u]Finn[/name_u] and [name_u]Blair[/name_u].

Other ideas that you may like:




[name_f]My[/name_f] favourite pairings would be:
[name_f]Colette[/name_f] & [name_u]Henry[/name_u]
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] & [name_u]Charles[/name_u] (nicknames [name_f]Dottie[/name_f] and Charlie!)
[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] & [name_f]Cora[/name_f]

Some other combinations, ranked on how much they fit your list:
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] & [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] (vintage but have a modern ring to them)
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] & [name_m]Otis[/name_m] (same as above, but leaning towards vintage)
[name_f]Bridget[/name_f] & [name_m]Casper[/name_m] (definitely more vintage, but still cute!)
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] & [name_u]George[/name_u] (more contemporary)
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] & [name_u]Owen[/name_u] (more on the modern side, but fits with your list!)
[name_f]Agnes[/name_f] & [name_u]Amos[/name_u] (underused vintage names, but could still work nowadays)

Some names in general:


[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps in some way and have fun naming your twins!


I think [name_u]Henry[/name_u] and [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] sound really cute together.
Some suggestions
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] and [name_f]Annalise[/name_f]
[name_u]George[/name_u] and [name_u]Louise[/name_u]
[name_m]Norman[/name_m] and [name_f]Gwen[/name_f]


You have a nice list so far!

Some sets I’d make from them:

[name_u]Henry[/name_u] and [name_f]Cora[/name_f]
[name_u]Finn[/name_u] and [name_f]Cora[/name_f]
[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] and [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]
[name_f]Colette[/name_f] and [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] (maybe too matchy?)

Some other ideas using one of your names in each set:

[name_u]Henry[/name_u] and [name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_u]Charles[/name_u] and [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] (Charlie and Elsie)
[name_u]Finn[/name_u] and [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]
[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] and [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] (Mack and Romy)
[name_f]Colette[/name_f] and [name_m]Vincent[/name_m] (Coco and Vinnie)
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] and [name_m]Oscar[/name_m]
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] and [name_u]Julian[/name_u]

From your list, I love [name_m]Malcom[/name_m] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f] together, mainly because of the strong “C” in both :slight_smile: I don’t love same initial for twins either, but I do love when they have a shared sound somewhere between them. I also think [name_u]Finn[/name_u] and [name_f]Cora[/name_f] go well because they are short and sweet :slightly_smiling_face:

[name_u]Henry[/name_u] & [name_f]Clara[/name_f]
[name_u]Henry[/name_u] & [name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_u]Charles[/name_u] & [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] / [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] & [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]
[name_u]Asher[/name_u] & [name_f]Cora[/name_f]

[name_u]Ellis[/name_u] & [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] / [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_m]Calvin[/name_m] & [name_f]Vera[/name_f]


I have a son named [name_u]Charles[/name_u] who goes by [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] so of course I’m most partial to that, [name_u]Henry[/name_u] [name_u]Finn[/name_u] has been on my list of potential future brother so that would be my second vote! [name_f]May[/name_f] I suggest [name_u]Timothy[/name_u] or [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] as well? For girls I like [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] & [name_f]Colette[/name_f], [name_f]Cora[/name_f] is more of a middle name to me, I’ve had [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Cora[/name_f] on my own list (we seem to have similar taste). [name_f]May[/name_f] I also suggest [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Delilah[/name_f], and [name_f]Coraline[/name_f]?

[name_u]Charles[/name_u] [name_m]Victor[/name_m]
[name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]

[name_m]Alexander[/name_m] [name_u]Dorian[/name_u]

Congratulations :tada::tada:

From your boys I love [name_u]Henry[/name_u] & [name_u]Finn[/name_u] they are just so sweet. I have loved [name_u]Henry[/name_u] for so long he’s on my own personal list and I also have [name_u]Finley[/name_u] on my list so of course [name_u]Finn[/name_u] makes me smile.

You’ve had lots of lovely suggestions so count any repeats as me being in agreement with the berries


From your girls I actually love all of them they are all beautiful. Such an amazing top three!


Looking at potential combinations from your favourites I really like the idea of

[name_u]Finn[/name_u] + [name_f]Cora[/name_f] = they are both so sweet, bright and outdoorsy. I like that sound wise they feel very different but they both share four letters it’s a sweet subtle theme. [name_u]Finn[/name_u] & [name_f]Cora[/name_f] are just so cute.

[name_u]Henry[/name_u] + [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] = such a lovely sibling set feels straight out of [name_f]Mary[/name_f] Poppins just so vintage, so classic and incredibly nostalgic. [name_u]An[/name_u] adorable sibling set. [name_m]Hank[/name_m] & [name_f]Dottie[/name_f] is so fun.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps
