identical twins girls

Okay, so I think my husband and I have finally agreed on two names that we both like for our identical twin girls due this [name]November[/name]. BUT my only concern is that they might sound a little similar and I really don’t want that! What do you think? (middle names are family names)

[name]Gemma[/name] [name]Layne[/name] and [name]Jada[/name] [name]Mae[/name]

nicknames [name]Gem[/name] and [name]Jade[/name]


They do sound very similar to me too. I really love [name]Gemma[/name] though!

Those are adorable names. The combinations with the middle names are cute too : )

[name]Hi[/name]! I’m an identical twin, too! I do think that [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Jada[/name] are too themed, being that a [name]Jade[/name] is a gem stone, and, yes, they sound very similar. Are you open to other ideas? If so, do you prefer [name]Gemma[/name] or [name]Jada[/name]?

Good luck!

I find them too matchy. I love [name]Gemma[/name] the most!

I also agree they’re a tad matchy, but if your husband is anything like mine, TAKE WHAT YOU CAN GET. If you’re both happy with it you should do it. (I like both names, btw.) :slight_smile:

[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Lacey[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Audrey[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Adriana[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Bryony[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Isla[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Mirabella[/name]

ooh, I just checked back and I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Isla[/name].

They don’t look matchy, but [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Jada[/name] definitely sound way too much alike, which could be pretty confusing, especially for girls who won’t even have their own face :slight_smile:

I [name]LOVE[/name] the suggestion of [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Beatrix[/name]. [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Isla[/name] is a great pairing, too.

[name]Hope[/name] that helps. Good luck!

I think [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Jada[/name] sound too matchy. Also, [name]Gemma[/name] (my favorite) seems like a weightier name than [name]Jada[/name]. I love the other suggested pairings, though. Lots of good ideas.

Forgot [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Summer[/name]!

To see if the names sound too similiar, some suggest saying them outloud – or practicing with different pretend situations. Like try calling them inside for dinner “[name]Gemma[/name] – [name]Jada[/name] – time for dinner!” or their nn’s “[name]Gem[/name] & [name]Jade[/name]…”

They do sound a little too close, but as others have said, if those are the names you love, don’t let people talk you out of it! You did say you were concerned about being too matchy or sounding the same.

I don’t know what to do! I can’t think of any other names that I like (that my husband likes too)… Maybe I’ll stick with them…but I don’t want to regret it!

I love [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Isla[/name] too, but my 2 year old daughter is named [name]Ayla[/name]. I guess if I had to pick, I like [name]Gemma[/name] best…

Hmmmm… [name]Gemma[/name] and ??? (But I love [name]Jada[/name]!)

I also feel their a little too matchy. Since the G in [name]Gemma[/name] is pronounced like a J… they’re practically the same name. They have the same starting and ending sound, and the same syllables. I think one needs to go. I’d nix [name]Jada[/name], and keep [name]Gemma[/name] personally.

sometimes I say [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Jada[/name] and they don’t sound that close! It’s a tough call

[name]How[/name] about [name]Gemma[/name] &

Okay, with [name]Ayla[/name] and [name]Gemma[/name], I’d keep the soft, feminine sounds and -a ending, for sure, for daughter #3

[name]Cara[/name] - [name]Calla[/name] - [name]Christa[/name] - [name]Cora[/name]
[name]Kaia[/name] - [name]Keira[/name] - [name]Kira[/name]
[name]Lara[/name] - [name]Lola[/name] - [name]Lana[/name]
[name]Mara[/name] - [name]Mira[/name]
[name]Rosa[/name] - [name]Risa[/name]
[name]Sara[/name] - [name]Sorcha[/name]

My favorites are [name]Cara[/name], [name]Calla[/name], [name]Flora[/name], [name]Kaia[/name], [name]Lola[/name], and [name]Willa[/name]. Were your middle name choices [name]Layne[/name] and [name]Mae[/name]?

[name]Lemon[/name] :slight_smile:

I really love [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Flora[/name]. [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Willa[/name] too.

Thanks, [name]Lemon[/name]! But my hubby didn’t like any of those!

Here’s what I like (he doesn’t necessarily like these) what do you think?

[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Jada[/name] (ok, I love this…what if we just didn’t call them [name]Gem[/name] and [name]Jade[/name]? Still to themey?)
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Elena[/name] (too similar to [name]Ayla[/name]?)
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Eliana[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Elisa[/name] (other people don’t seem to like this, but i do)
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name] (I don’t like any of [name]Eliza[/name]'s nicknames and I like nicknames!)
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Juliana[/name]
[name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Lena[/name] (my husband hates this, I love it)

Ok, my list stinks. I’m sad about [name]Jada[/name]:frowning:

I liked the [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Lana[/name] suggestion. What about [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Della[/name]?

I think [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Jada[/name] are too similar in sound, even without the [name]Gem[/name] and [name]Jade[/name] nicknames it’s too much. With big sister [name]Ayla[/name] and twin [name]Gemma[/name], how about:
[name]Lena[/name] - sorry DH doesn’t like this one, I agree with you it works well

My favorites are [name]Ayla[/name], [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Britta[/name] or [name]Ayla[/name], [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Nina[/name]
