Help Us Name Our Twins

Hello everyone! My name is [name]Mariah[/name] [name]Wheeler[/name] and I am new to Nameberry so I am not exactly sure where to begin. My DH and I recently found out we are having twins and this is our first pregnancy :slight_smile: We do not know the sexes yet and we are not sure yet if we want to or not. We are very excited and cannot wait to find the names. DH and I are both history professors and extremely fascinated by the Old [name]West[/name], Westward Expansion, and just the Pioneer Times in general. We want names to reflect this. So give us your best Pioneer names!


Thank you! I like [name]Jedidiah[/name] a lot :slight_smile:

Yay history professors! Obviously, that is my major :wink: I am a junior (undergrad) and plan on going for my graduate degree once I’m done. [name]Don[/name]'t think I’ll be a teacher, though. American history is my favorite, and I plan on taking a class called The American [name]West[/name] next semester!

Anyways, on to names…

These names give me an “old west” or “colonial” vibe:


Also, here is a list of names that someone found while looking up Civil War records. They’re from [name]Indiana[/name], but they probably still give a good look at the naming styles back in that time.

That’s all I got! Btw, congrats!
