Double trouble..twins!!

Hello everyone,
I need so ideas and help with naming my 3rd and 4th children who are twin girls. My husband and I can’t decide on any names. We have talked with family and friends and still can’t decide on any names. We both way completely different things. We have two boys already and naming them was so easy!! We have a 5 year old named [name]Brady[/name] Kruez and then a 3 year old named [name]Mason[/name] [name]Thomas[/name].
My husband wants the twin girls to have matchy names and different middle names. I want them to have the same initials but different type of first names and similar middle names.

My husband ideas: [name]Kylie[/name] [name]May[/name] & [name]Rylie[/name] [name]Nicole[/name], [name]Eva[/name] [name]May[/name] & [name]Eve[/name] [name]Janie[/name].

My ideas: [name]Molly[/name] [name]Kay[/name] & [name]Melody[/name] [name]Kate[/name], [name]Eden[/name] [name]Lee[/name] & [name]Emery[/name] [name]Leanne[/name].

Any ideas and thoughts??


I must say I am much more on your side than your husbands!! far too matchy!!

Maybe you could find more of a theme, for example… [name]Virtue[/name] name, nature names, gem/jewel names

For example… Following your initials rule…

[name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Iris[/name]
[name]Honor[/name] and [name]Hope[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] and [name]Willow[/name]

[name]Hi[/name], and congratulations! [name]Brady[/name] and [name]Mason[/name] are so strong and well-matched! Here are my thoughts:

As an identical twin, I have to say that you just really should not go with your husband’s ideas. [name]Eva[/name] and [name]Eve[/name] are the same name. Please, no! Identical twins have to go through so much as it is, that having the same name is a burden that you can change for them. Thus, I would advise you to make a different choice. I also would advise against the rhyming names - I know, it’s tempting, but it’s no fun for the twin wearers of the names. Now, your ideas are much more appropriate, and I think [name]Eden[/name] and [name]Emery[/name] in particular are very cute names! I’m personally not a fan of the matching initials, but if that’s what you need to do, then go with it.

If you’re asking for my thoughts and suggestions on twin girl names to go with [name]Brady[/name] and [name]Mason[/name], I would personally suggest non-matching names that are both in the surname-y or occupational area, like [name]Brady[/name] and [name]Mason[/name]. For example, I would recommend [name]Adair[/name] ([name]Addie[/name]), [name]Cadence[/name] ([name]Cady[/name]), [name]Campbell[/name] ([name]Cam[/name], [name]Cami[/name], [name]Belle[/name]), [name]Ellis[/name] ([name]Ellie[/name], Lissy), [name]Harlow[/name], [name]Harper[/name], [name]Hollis[/name] ([name]Holly[/name], Lissy), [name]Piper[/name], [name]Sawyer[/name], [name]Skylar[/name], or [name]Spenser[/name] (Spense). Some of these wouldn’t be best together, like [name]Ellis[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name] or [name]Harper[/name] and [name]Harlow[/name] or [name]Harper[/name] and [name]Piper[/name]. Below are some pairings that I find really nice:

[name]Adair[/name] and [name]Ellis[/name] ([name]Addie[/name] and [name]Ellie[/name])
[name]Cadence[/name] and [name]Piper[/name] - [name]Both[/name] names are musical! [name]Cadence[/name] isn’t a surname or occupational name, but it fits. [name]Cady[/name] and [name]Pippa[/name] for short?
[name]Cadence[/name] and [name]Harper[/name] - Again, both names are musical.

If you want something matching in terms of initials, you could always alternate initials. So, in the example of [name]Cadence[/name] and [name]Harper[/name] above, you might use [name]Cadence[/name] [name]Hannah[/name] and [name]Harper[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]; for [name]Adair[/name] and [name]Ellis[/name], you might use [name]Adair[/name] [name]Eva[/name] and [name]Ellis[/name] [name]Annabel[/name]; and for [name]Cadence[/name] and [name]Piper[/name], you might use [name]Cadence[/name] [name]Paige[/name] and [name]Piper[/name] [name]Claire[/name] ([name]Paige[/name] and [name]Claire[/name] even look alike, which might be a plus for you!). So, that’s something to play with…

Good luck!


I can’t stand your husbands matchy themes… they just seem so mean!

TBH I’m not a huge fan of matching initials either but it’s better than names that rhyme. So I’ll be taking your side of that argument.

Matchy matchy names are a BAD idea. They’re individual people. You didn’t make your boys names rhyme. [name]Eva[/name] and [name]Eve[/name] is just cruel. As is [name]Kylie[/name] and [name]Rylie[/name]. [name]Molly[/name] and [name]Melody[/name] are the best ideas so far. [name]How[/name] about names that aren’t obviously matchy, but have the same meaning or something? [name]Clara[/name] and [name]Lucy[/name] for example. [name]Clara[/name] means bright and [name]Lucy[/name] means light which is pretty sweet. Other ideas:

[name]Calista[/name] and [name]Belle[/name] - beautiful
[name]Ruby[/name] and [name]Pearl[/name] - both stones
[name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Willow[/name] - plant names
[name]Felicity[/name] and [name]Blythe[/name] - happy
[name]Lily[/name] and [name]Susannah[/name] - lily
[name]Hana[/name] and [name]Linn[/name]éa - blossom
[name]Nova[/name] and [name]Signy[/name] - new
[name]Lorelei[/name] and [name]Nerida[/name] - siren/mermaid
[name]Ariel[/name] and [name]Aurora[/name] - matching ‘A’/disney princess
[name]Clarissa[/name] and [name]Alina[/name] - bright
[name]Juliet[/name] and [name]Ophelia[/name] - [name]Shakespeare[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] and [name]Cordelia[/name] - sea
[name]Georgia[/name] and [name]Aspen[/name] - place names
[name]Avril[/name] and [name]May[/name] - month names
[name]Cora[/name] and [name]Ella[/name] - maiden

I’d do somewhat matching names as firsttime suggested like [name]Cameo[/name] & [name]Gemma[/name] or [name]Robin[/name] and [name]Lark[/name]. Maybe you could find nice middle ground this way.

…btw I just have to mention, I love [name]Mason[/name] [name]Thomas[/name], I think it’s divine!
