Help! Twins and no idea.

I’m new to this site, a friend recommended it especially with my current crisis. I’m due within the week, expecting twins, no idea of the genders and my partner just seems to veto everything.

There is one name that we do seem to agree on, and that is [name]Felicia[/name] for a girl but we’re not 100% sure. I would like to have a couple options to take to the hospital though.

Also some points we are agree on are not having names that are trendy now like “[name]Brooklyn[/name]” that will probably go dated, yooneek spellings and unisex names.

We have a little girl named [name]Aveline Marie[/name] and last name is [name]Harris[/name]. So names that goes well with that.

So basically girl/girl, boy/boy, boy/girl combos would be great!

I know this is a lot to ask for, but we need fresh ideas and luckily I have my partner next to me, so we can offer feedback more quickly.

Would love to hear from you.

[edit] Although our daughter’s names are french, we are not overally fussed about any other french names. We do not want to be stuck in that trend if we do decide to have another child someday.

Other than that the middle names we are considering are Marian, Francesca, Charles and Jack to honour family members. Not so sure though.

[name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Dawn[/name]
[name]Chandra[/name] and [name]Selene[/name]
[name]Erica[/name] and [name]Heather[/name]

[name]Elijah[/name] and [name]Joel[/name]
[name]Nathaniel[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name]
[name]Lucius[/name] and [name]Uri[/name]

[name]Brendan[/name] and [name]Sarah[/name]
[name]Ezra[/name] and [name]Ophelia[/name]
[name]Aliyah[/name] and [name]Jordan[/name]

Only some of these are French. I think pairing any of these would work for twins:
[name]Amalia[/name] (ah-MAH-lee-a or am-a-[name]LEE[/name]-a)
Isalina/[name]Isaline[/name] (might be too close to [name]Aveline[/name])

Oh, and for boys:

Oh, and I second [name]Nathaniel[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name].


Here is our feedback:

[name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Dawn[/name] (Pretty, but unusable names for us. [name]Aurora[/name] seems too loaded, and [name]Dawn[/name] dosen’t sit well somehow.)
[name]Chandra[/name] and [name]Selene[/name] (Partner likes [name]Selene[/name], he likes the connection to the Underworld series. I’m not so sure, I think we’ll dwell over it. [name]Chandra[/name] seems too much bogan, no offence.)
[name]Erica[/name] and [name]Heather[/name] (Not a fan of either)

[name]Elijah[/name] and [name]Joel[/name] (Not a fan)
[name]Nathaniel[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name] (I have never heard of [name]Nathaniel[/name], I like it but partner is not so sure. [name]Theodore[/name] is cute, but we won’t use it as a cousin has a boy named [name]Theo[/name].)
[name]Lucius[/name] and [name]Uri[/name] (Not a fan, sorry)

[name]Brendan[/name] and [name]Sarah[/name] (We know a few Brendans and Sarahs in our generation, nice but not for us.)
[name]Ezra[/name] and [name]Ophelia[/name] (Not a fan of [name]Ezra[/name], we like [name]Ophelia[/name] but the tale is a bit too tragic for our liking.)
[name]Aliyah[/name] and [name]Jordan[/name] ([name]One[/name] of my close friends is called [name]Jordan[/name], so I won’t use it and partner dosen’t like [name]Aliyah[/name])

Overall we liked [name]Selene[/name] and [name]Nathaniel[/name] from your list, but we will have to dwell on them for a bit. I’m sorry if we seem too picky, nothing seems particularly right.

[name]Felicia[/name] & [name]Beatrice[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] & [name]Raphaela[/name]
[name]Felicia[/name] & [name]Rosemary[/name]
[name]Felicia[/name] & [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Felicia[/name] and [name]Jane[/name] [name]Francesca[/name] (I wouldn’t give twins matching FIRST initials but the temptation was too much to ignore for middle names…)

[name]Jacob[/name] & [name]Owen[/name]
[name]Silas[/name] & [name]Emmett[/name]
[name]Nathaniel[/name] & [name]Dominic[/name]
[name]Jesse[/name] & [name]Rhys[/name]
[name]Cassius[/name] & [name]Gareth[/name]


We like [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Lavinia[/name] and [name]Elias[/name]. [name]Elias[/name] and [name]Felicia[/name] sounds great. Well I like all of them, Partner not so sure, there is a lot of names. :slight_smile:
We’ll dwell on them and the rest of the list and thank you for the suggestions.


Thank you for suggesting [name]Rosemary[/name]! Partner had a sudden thought and remembered his transition teacher who was called this and was lovely to him. I’ve never thought of it as a name for a girl, but it sounds pretty and fresh. We seem to agree on this, but time will tell in the next couple of days as it always does and hopefully not too late.

We also like [name]Gareth[/name].

[name]Aveline[/name] [name]Marie[/name] and

[name]Lucille[/name] [name]Ariana[/name] and [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Zoe[/name]
[name]Liliana[/name] [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Gretchen[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name]
[name]Gretel[/name] [name]Marianne[/name] and Leisel [name]Antoinette[/name]
[name]Sabina[/name] [name]Rue[/name] and [name]Sybil[/name] [name]Eliana[/name]
[name]Cecelia[/name] [name]Willow[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]
[name]Seraphina[/name] [name]Fleur[/name] and [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Ivy[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Annabel[/name] [name]Felicia[/name]
[name]Annabel[/name] [name]Francesca[/name]
[name]Felicia[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] and [name]Margot[/name] [name]Alice[/name]

[name]Jamison[/name] [name]Levi[/name] and [name]Elliott[/name] [name]Mason[/name]
[name]John[/name] [name]Henry[/name] and [name]Luke[/name] [name]Edwin[/name]
[name]Curtis[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] and [name]Reid[/name] [name]Preston[/name]
[name]Barnaby[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] and [name]Charles[/name] [name]Rafferty[/name]
[name]Liam[/name] [name]Jacob[/name] and [name]Ethan[/name] [name]Micah[/name]

[name]Joel[/name] [name]Hunter[/name] and [name]Oscar[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Amos[/name] and [name]Edward[/name] [name]Isaiah[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Lucy[/name] and [name]William[/name] [name]James[/name] nn [name]Liam[/name]
[name]Laurel[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Tristan[/name] [name]Edward[/name]
[name]James[/name] [name]Charlton[/name] and [name]Imogen[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Lucy[/name] and [name]Rhys[/name] [name]Owen[/name]

[name]Juliet[/name] came to mind. Also [name]Felicity[/name] is another to consider.

[name]Felicity[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name]

[name]Felecia[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]…
[name]Felecia[/name] [name]Annabel[/name]
[name]Felecia[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Felecia[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]
[name]Felecia[/name] [name]Dawn[/name]
[name]Felecia[/name] [name]Charlie[/name] (after [name]Charles[/name])

[name]Liam[/name] [name]Charles[/name]
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name]
[name]Noah[/name] [name]Jack[/name]
[name]Christian[/name] [name]Jack[/name]
[name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Jack[/name]

[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Cecelia[/name] & [name]Felecia[/name] [name]Marian[/name]… [name]Marian[/name] honors your family member, and is similar to [name]Rosemary[/name], [name]Cecelia[/name] is similar to [name]Felecia[/name], then the sisters would have another connection…

[name]Sabastian[/name] [name]Charles[/name] & [name]Alexander[/name] [name]Jack[/name]… [name]Both[/name] names honor family members…

[name]Charlie[/name] [name]Francesca[/name] & [name]Felix[/name] [name]Charles[/name]… [name]Charlie[/name] to honor [name]Charles[/name], [name]Charles[/name] to honor [name]Charles[/name], and then the siblingsshare something in a name. [name]Felix[/name] has the same first letter as Fransesca, Fransesca honors one of your family members, then Fransesca & [name]Charles[/name] could be honored both in two names!

[name]Hope[/name] this helped!!!

Mommy to 4 beautiful daughters!

Thank you for all the suggestions!

Okay, after a bit of thinking [name]Felicia[/name] and [name]Rosemary[/name] are still on the list. We have vetoed [name]Nathaniel[/name] and [name]Gareth[/name].

[name]Nathaniel[/name]-because the possibility of being called [name]Nathan[/name] is pretty high, we tried it on a friend and the immediate reaction was ‘Oh a little [name]Nathan[/name]’ not a fan. Plus even though we could call him [name]Nate[/name], which is okay…its meh.

[name]Gareth[/name]-we tried this on a family member, same reaction only they shortened it to [name]Gary[/name]. :frowning:

Beautiful names, but not for us.

We’re finding it hard to agree on any boy name, except maybe [name]William[/name], help us love it?

Also another question, does [name]Rosemary[/name] work with [name]Felicia[/name] and [name]Aveline[/name]. [name]Felicia[/name] and [name]Aveline[/name] are pretty, but also spunky-we’re not sure if [name]Rosemary[/name] has the same vibe or if its too frilly.

Here are some suggestions =) Sorry if there’s any repeats.

[name]Anneliese[/name] and Ananya (Uh-non-ya)
[name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Esme[/name]

[name]Hayden[/name] and [name]Miles[/name]
[name]Emma[/name] and [name]Owen[/name]
[name]Leighton[/name] and [name]Chase[/name]

[name]Hudson[/name] and [name]Miles[/name]
[name]Parker[/name] and [name]Owen[/name]
[name]Sebastian[/name] and [name]Charlie[/name]


For 2 boys: [name]Cole[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] and [name]Leo[/name] [name]Charles[/name] or [name]Leo[/name] [name]Charles[/name] and [name]Noah[/name] [name]Matthew[/name]
For 2 girls: [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Felicia[/name] [name]Marian[/name] or [name]Corrine[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Felicia[/name] [name]Marian[/name]

Your daughter has a beautiful name:) I like [name]Rosemary[/name] a lot, it such a pretty name, but I feel it’s a bit different from [name]Aveline[/name] and [name]Felicia[/name] (which I like a lot). [name]Rosalie[/name] maybe?
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], & [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], & [name]Lucinda[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], & [name]Elodie[/name]… or something like that.

I love [name]William[/name], it’s so handsome!
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]William[/name], & [name]James[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]William[/name], & [name]George[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]William[/name], & [name]Phineas[/name]… do you like anyone of these?

Boy/girl: [name]Aveline[/name], [name]William[/name], & [name]Felicia[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone for the input! It means a lot.
I don’t know how, and I don’t know why but somehow we both love [name]Lucinda[/name]. We had considered [name]Lucia[/name] when we were having [name]Aveline[/name], but then scrapped it. But somehow [name]Lucinda[/name] works…and very well. Thank you svea for the suggestion.

We just found out that [name]William[/name] is #3 in the top baby names where we live, so we have decided to veto it. Beautiful name, but not for us.

Other than that, we find [name]Phineas[/name] rather cute.

Here is our shortlist so far:

[name]Felicia[/name] [name]Lily[/name] (Our little [name]Aveline[/name] wanted to partake in the naming so she thinks [name]Lily[/name] works well (as a matter of fact)… its a pretty middle name, and we weren’t that fussed about [name]Marian[/name] or [name]Francesca[/name] and also [name]Marian[/name] is too close to [name]Marie[/name] which is [name]Aveline[/name]'s mn.


[name]Rosemary[/name] (maybe)

[name]Phineas[/name] (maybe)

I love [name]Felicia[/name] and [name]Lucinda[/name] as your gg twin names and think they sound great with [name]Aveline[/name]. Here are some bb and bg combinations that you might like:

[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Henry[/name], and [name]Gilbert[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Calvin[/name], and [name]Daniel[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Edmund[/name], and [name]Philip[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Gabriel[/name], and [name]Dominic[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Malcolm[/name], and [name]David[/name]

[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], and [name]Gabriel[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], and [name]Philip[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], and [name]Julian[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], and [name]Tobias[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], and [name]Rupert[/name]
[name]Aveline[/name], [name]Felicia[/name], and [name]Cassius[/name]

Thank you!

We sort of like [name]Philip[/name], not sure though. [name]One[/name] of my mother’s friends has a son called [name]Philip[/name].


I love [name]Aveline[/name] [name]Marie[/name]. It’s gorgeous and glamorous though still on trend! To me, [name]Felicia[/name] isn’t quite the best match, as it feels like more of an older name compared to [name]Aveline[/name], but if you love it, you love it, right? Honestly, I’d prefer [name]Francesca[/name] with [name]Aveline[/name]. That would be very pretty! Now, your idea of [name]Lucinda[/name], or even your old pick of [name]Lucia[/name], is perfect with [name]Aveline[/name]. Either would be delightful. [name]Lily[/name] as a middle name is quite pretty, but you could even do [name]Lilia[/name] or [name]Lilias[/name] as a first name and call your girl [name]Lily[/name]. [name]Aveline[/name] and [name]Lilia[/name] are nice - [name]Lilias[/name] [name]Harris[/name] isn’t ideal, I’d reckon - but [name]Lucinda[/name] and [name]Lilia[/name] are a little cutesy for twins in my opinion, and I’m speaking as an identical twin. If you like [name]Rosemary[/name], would you consider [name]Rosanna[/name]? I think [name]Rosanna[/name] is glamorous with [name]Aveline[/name], and then you aren’t repeating the [name]Mary[/name] with [name]Marie[/name] and [name]Rosemary[/name], you know? [name]Rosanna[/name] and [name]Lucinda[/name] or [name]Rosanna[/name] and [name]Lucia[/name] are very nicely matched. For middle names, you could do something like [name]Rosanna[/name] [name]Frances[/name] and [name]Lucinda[/name] [name]Lilith[/name] with [name]Aveline[/name] [name]Marie[/name] - all three names feel somewhat classic, and the twins’ names would be united by a subtle flower theme. Other girl names I’d put with [name]Aveline[/name] are [name]Cassandra[/name], [name]Calla[/name], [name]Daphne[/name], [name]Esme[/name], [name]Fiona[/name], Hosanna, [name]Isobel[/name], [name]Imogen[/name], [name]Jessamy[/name], [name]Juliet[/name], [name]Liliane[/name], [name]Magdalena[/name], [name]Miranda[/name], [name]Noella[/name], [name]Oliva[/name], [name]Penelope[/name], [name]Phoebe[/name], [name]Romola[/name], [name]Sylvie[/name], [name]Tallulah[/name], [name]Tamsin[/name], and [name]Willa[/name]. In particular, I like the pairings of [name]Esme[/name] and [name]Fiona[/name], [name]Phoebe[/name] and [name]Miranda[/name], or [name]Sylvie[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name]. In fact, I’m quite taken with [name]Esme[/name] [name]Francesca[/name] and [name]Fiona[/name] [name]Lily[/name]!

For boys, I might consider something like [name]Beckett[/name], [name]Bertram[/name], [name]Bingham[/name], [name]Corbin[/name], [name]Calder[/name], [name]Cyrus[/name], [name]Everett[/name], [name]Eamon[/name], [name]Emmett[/name], [name]Graeme[/name], [name]Julian[/name], [name]Jude[/name], [name]Leo[/name], [name]Leon[/name], [name]Lorcan[/name], [name]Oscar[/name], [name]Oliver[/name], [name]Piers[/name], [name]Quentin[/name], [name]Roman[/name], [name]Roscoe[/name], [name]Silas[/name], [name]Sebastian[/name], [name]Theo[/name], or [name]Vaughn[/name]. I like something along the lines of [name]Beckett[/name] and [name]Jude[/name], [name]Emmett[/name] and [name]Leon[/name], [name]Oliver[/name] and [name]Quentin[/name], [name]Bingham[/name] and [name]Roscoe[/name], or [name]Everett[/name] and [name]Theo[/name].

See if you like any of those girl or boy ideas and I can help you think about a mixed set, okay?
