help with my twins!!

Hello all,
I’ve had a semi complicated twin pregnancy so hubby would not talk about names until we reached the critical 28 week point. Well I’m 30 weeks now and although hubby hasn’t suggested one single name, he shot down all of my suggestions. Our 6 year old son wanted [name]Lola[/name] [name]Grace[/name] and [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Rose[/name], but hubby knew a dog named [name]Lola[/name] and doesn’t like [name]Olivia[/name].
Okay, so so far, here are some new suggestions
[name]Isla[/name] [name]Rose[/name] & [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name],
[name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name] & [name]Soleil[/name] [name]Rose[/name] (get it? sun and moon)
[name]India[/name] [name]Rose[/name], [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
I’d appreciate any other suggestions!
I don’t want rhyming twin names but keeping a theme seems nice.

Maybe [name]Solenne[/name] instead of [name]Soleil[/name]? It isn’t as literal as [name]Soleil[/name], but still derived from the same place and possibly easier to live with (for your daughter, not you.) [name]Luna[/name] is great.

There’s always the whole flower thing you could go with as well.

I like the idea of a theme, but just be careful to not take it too far - your girls will be living alone for much more of their life than together.

Good luck and congrats for making it to 30 weeks!

I hope you’re doing okay… :slight_smile:

[name]Isla[/name] [name]Rose[/name] & [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: Unfortunately, [name]Rose[/name] has become the most popular middle name in the universe, and it’s todays “throw away” middle name, like [name]Lynn[/name] and [name]Ann[/name]. I love [name]Rose[/name] though, but as a first name where it’s rarely used these days.

With [name]Luna[/name], I’d personally be concerned about looney jokes.

[name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name] & [name]Soleil[/name] [name]Rose[/name] (get it? sun and moon): Too themey for me, and you’ve got the looney issue. What about keeping them in the middle? [name]Grace[/name] is very popular, too. Less obvious options below…

[name]India[/name] [name]Rose[/name], [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: I think [name]India[/name] is an interesting name, but I have the looney issue with [name]Luna[/name].

[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name] (same style)
[name]Beatrix[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Eloise[/name]/[name]Eloisa[/name] [name]Mae[/name] (literary theme)
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Simone[/name] (Romantic style)
[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] (French theme)
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] and [name]Miranda[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] ([name]Shakespeare[/name])
[name]Viola[/name] [name]Mirabel[/name] and [name]Delphine[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] (unusual floral names)
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] and [name]Briony[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] (floral)
[name]Viola[/name] [name]Ruby[/name] and [name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] (floral and gemstones)
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Simone[/name] ([name]Aurora[/name] = day name) and [name]Diana[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] (night names)
[name]Thea[/name] [name]Camille[/name] ([name]Thea[/name]= day name) and [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] (night names)
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Stella[/name] [name]Simone[/name] (night/star name)
[name]Flora[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] and [name]Briony[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] (floral names)
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Amelia[/name] and [name]Calla[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] (floral names)
[name]Hazel[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] and [name]Ivy[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]/[name]Celeste[/name]/[name]Eloise[/name] ([name]Sophia[/name] is popular, though…It’s a green theme, but it may be too themey!)
[name]Honor[/name] (or [name]Hope[/name]) [name]Caroline[/name] and [name]Blythe[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] (virtues)
[name]Arabella[/name] [name]Tamsin[/name] and [name]Zara[/name] [name]Delphine[/name] (exotic names, opposite ends of alphabet)
[name]Cora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] (Greek names)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

OMG! I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Cora[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]!

Congrats and hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly!

[name]Isla[/name] [name]Rose[/name] & [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: I like this enough, but don’t love it
[name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name] & [name]Soleil[/name] [name]Rose[/name]: I’m afraid it’s too much of a theme for me as well :frowning:
[name]India[/name] [name]Rose[/name], [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: [name]How[/name] about [name]India[/name] [name]Rose[/name] and [name]Lena[/name] [name]Grace[/name]? I think [name]Lena[/name] works well with [name]India[/name].

I love Jills’s suggestion of [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name]. I also love [name]Willa[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] with [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name]. Some others:

[name]Nora[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] and [name]Lucy[/name] [name]Georgette[/name] (first names mean “light”, middles are French)
[name]Clementine[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] and [name]Violet[/name] [name]Annabel[/name] (color theme)
[name]Miranda[/name] [name]Lark[/name] and [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Wren[/name] (bird theme)
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name] and [name]Flora[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] (nature theme + [name]Shakespeare[/name] theme)

p.s. [name]Do[/name] you mind sharing your son’s name so we can see that our suggestions match style-wise?

thanks for all the suggestions. we have lots to think about!

[name]Isla[/name] [name]Rose[/name] & [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name],
[name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name] & [name]Soleil[/name] [name]Rose[/name] (get it? sun and moon)
[name]India[/name] [name]Rose[/name], [name]Luna[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
I’d appreciate any other suggestions!
I don’t want rhyming twin names but keeping a theme seems nice.

I hope that everything is going well for you, [name]Karina[/name]!
I read somewhere that [name]Luna[/name] is becoming a popular name for pets. Has anyone else heard that?
[name]Love[/name] [name]Isla[/name], but [name]Rose[/name] and [name]Grace[/name] are too popular middle names.
[name]Luna[/name] and [name]Soleil[/name] are too theme-y for me as well.
[name]Love[/name] [name]India[/name].

[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Avalon[/name] - both have to do with islands.
[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Ailsa[/name] - ditto
[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Cambria[/name] - [name]Cambria[/name] is a place name for [name]Wales[/name].
[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Fiona[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Memphis[/name] - For me, this combo sounds great.
[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Juniper[/name]
Also love [name]Memphis[/name] and [name]Georgia[/name]
[name]India[/name] and [name]Memphis[/name] - both mysterious sounding place names.
[name]India[/name] and [name]Alexandria[/name] - ditto
[name]India[/name] and [name]Acadia[/name] - ditto
[name]India[/name] and [name]Marin[/name] - I just love the name [name]Marin[/name]!
[name]India[/name] and [name]Carmel[/name] (car-[name]MEL[/name])
[name]India[/name] and Merida - Merida is a lovely city in Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula. It is lovely when the “d” sound is pronounced with a soft “th”.
[name]India[/name] and [name]Venice[/name]
[name]India[/name] and [name]Florence[/name]
[name]India[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]India[/name] and Marseille - Marseille is a city in [name]France[/name], but I might be spelling it incorrectly. Also I don’t know how pretty it is. If you like Marseille, make sure you like the city.
[name]India[/name] and [name]Persia[/name] - probably too matchy. But sounds so mysterious. Also sounds kind of like a geography lesson is about to happen : ^ (. Although I do love geography.

Another theme idea:
[name]Twyla[/name] (has to do with twilight) and [name]Daisy[/name] (sounds like [name]Day[/name]'s Eye)
[name]Twyla[/name] and [name]Danica[/name] (morning star)

I really love [name]Isla[/name] and [name]Memphis[/name] and [name]Twyla[/name] and [name]Danica[/name].

[name]Hi[/name] congrats,
