It's TWINS! Going from 3 to 5!!!

So we thought we were prepared name wise, but this has thrown us off course a little! We’d still like to keep the gender a surprise, but we’d love your help with some combinations!
I posted my top 10 names in a forum somewhere else on the site, so I’ll copy the ones I’d consider using here (slightly edited, as DH hates two middle names!)

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Alice[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Adeline[/name] [name]Violet[/name]

[name]Desmond[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]
[name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Jasper[/name]

[name]Ah[/name], so many more we can’t use! Goodbye [name]Rose[/name], [name]Romilly[/name], [name]Rory[/name], [name]Henry[/name], [name]Wyn[/name], and [name]William[/name]!

No clue. [name]Desmond[/name] & [name]Theodore[/name] doesn’t really work, although I love the names individually.

[name]Anna[/name] ([name]Annie[/name]) & [name]Matilda[/name] ([name]Milla[/name])?

[name]Anna[/name] & [name]Desmond[/name]: My top favourite.
[name]Poppy[/name] & [name]Theodore[/name]: I do like it, but I can’t help feeling it’s a bit… overdone? I’m also put off by popularity, [name]Poppy[/name] is #21 and [name]Theo[/name] is #44
[name]George[/name] & [name]Orla[/name]: DH won’t allow, but I love it :stuck_out_tongue:

Here are some of my thoughts:

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Matilda[/name] (save [name]Matilda[/name] for a first name)
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Alice[/name] [name]Love[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Poppy[/name] I love but she is such a spunky girl I think [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Eliza[/name] would be the best for her
[name]Adeline[/name] [name]Violet[/name] Beautiful she needs a sister with a soft flowing feminine name like [name]Georgiana[/name] [name]Louise[/name].

[name]Desmond[/name] [name]Oliver[/name] reverse the handsome [name]Oliver[/name] goes anywhere with style from the country to the city, from the boardroom to the bohemian world. So, think [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Desmond[/name] would make a fabulous match
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] Like
[name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Jasper[/name], [name]Jasper[/name] I love but [name]Benjamin[/name] although classic is nms. Why is [name]William[/name] gone, he is an everlasting beauty? [name]William[/name] [name]Jasper[/name].
[name]Jonathan[/name] [name]Edward[/name]
[name]George[/name] [name]Edward[/name]
[name]Dexter[/name] [name]Francis[/name]

For sisters I like

[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Adeline[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Tallulah[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Johanna[/name]

[name]Anna[/name] and [name]Thea[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] and [name]Helena[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] and [name]Tessa[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] and [name]Margot[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] and [name]Laura[/name]

[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Tessa[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Margery[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Bryony[/name] [name]Rose[/name] nn [name]Bre[/name]

I know that there is huge trend towards people using names with a ‘z’ sound in them eg [name]Mackenzie[/name], [name]Miles[/name], [name]Cruz[/name] etc, so I am wondering if because you love [name]Desmond[/name] so much you have been swept up in the ‘z’ phenomen also?

I like [name]Anna[/name] a lot.
[name]Love[/name] [name]Poppy[/name] and [name]Theo[/name] but it may come across as a little matchy in real life for twins.
[name]George[/name] and [name]Orla[/name] definitely works but I don’t love [name]Orla[/name], it would have to be [name]Imogen[/name] because it has a harder sound like [name]George[/name] rather than the softer sound of [name]Orla[/name].
[name]Love[/name], love, love [name]Matilda[/name], combo of [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] is particularly beautiful.
If you don’t mind a ‘D’ theme then [name]Daphne[/name] and [name]Desmond[/name] would go.

I like
[name]Esther[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name].
[name]Dorothy[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name]
[name]Desmond[/name] and [name]Daphne[/name]
[name]Desmond[/name] and [name]Laurel[/name]

Does any of this help?



BG: [name]George[/name] & [name]Poppy[/name]
GG: [name]Poppy[/name] & [name]Ana[/name]
BB: I have no clue either, probably [name]Desmond[/name] & [name]George[/name].

I love your choices for boy names but I feel they sound too serious and formal next to your other childrens names. [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Rowan[/name], and [name]Tess[/name] sound so laid-back, down to earth and simple to me and I [name]LOVE[/name] their names but if you throw [name]Benjamin[/name] in there it just sounds a little odd. Idk, it might just be me so please don’t take me seriously. Also, I would for sure make it set in stone for [name]Poppy[/name] to be one of the girls. I think she fits your other childrens names like a glove :slight_smile:

I totally agree with pp, the twins should share a relaxed, informal kind of name.

[name]Poppy[/name] and [name]Eloise[/name] nn [name]Ellie[/name]/[name]Ella[/name],
[name]Daisy[/name] and [name]Skye[/name]
[name]Belle[/name] and [name]Isla[/name]
[name]June[/name] and [name]Willow[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] and [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Jemima[/name] ([name]Mimi[/name]) and [name]Penelope[/name] ([name]Penny[/name]) or just [name]Mimi[/name] and [name]Penny[/name] on its own.

B/G: [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] and [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Alice[/name]
G/G: [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Adeline[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
B/B: This is tricky, because I can’t work out what goes with [name]Theo[/name]. [name]How[/name] about [name]Desmond[/name] [name]Oliver[/name] and [name]Leo[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]? I love [name]Desmond[/name] and [name]Leo[/name] together

Thank you for your lovely responses!
To answer a few questions -
I can’t use [name]William[/name] because our last name is something like ‘Whinfell’. Seems a bit too rhymey!
Also, [name]Oliver[/name]. [name]Ah[/name]. It is a lovely name, but it’s #1 most popular - I just can’t bring myself to use it in first place!

Okay, I really like…

[name]Adeline[/name] & [name]Matilda[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] & [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] & [name]George[/name] (I [name]LOVE[/name] this, thank you!)
[name]Matilda[/name] & [name]Theodore[/name] (although I agree, perhaps a little clunky next to [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Rowan[/name] & [name]Tess[/name])

Congrats on the twins:

[name]How[/name] about:

[name]Anna[/name] and [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Adeline[/name] and [name]Matilda[/name]

[name]Anna[/name] and [name]Benjamin[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name]

[name]Benjamin[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name]
[name]Desmond[/name] and [name]Oliver[/name]


I think [name]Anna[/name] & [name]Matilda[/name] is cute, but something nags at me when I hear the two names together. They just seem so different, but maybe this is what you are going for? I think it might be the syllables throwing me off because I love [name]Annie[/name] & [name]Milla[/name]!

Off your list I love
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Adeline[/name] [name]Violet[/name] :slight_smile:
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] and [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Jasper[/name]
[name]Adeline[/name] [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Jasper[/name]

All your names are cute so I’m sure whatever you end up with will be great!


[name]Theodore[/name] & [name]Benjamin[/name]!

[name]Anna[/name] ([name]Annie[/name]) & [name]Matilda[/name] ([name]Milla[/name])? - I’m not keen on the double -a ending. Also, [name]Anna[/name] seems quite dull paired with [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Rowan[/name], [name]Tess[/name] & most of the other names on your list. Correct me if I’m wrong, but is its main appeal for you as a route to the nickname [name]Annie[/name]? If so, I think [name]Adeline[/name] nn [name]Annie[/name] would work, and would have a lot more spunk too!
[name]Matilda[/name] & [name]Adeline[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] & [name]Matilda[/name]

[name]Poppy[/name] & [name]Theodore[/name] - I’m still behind [name]Poppy[/name] & [name]Theodore[/name]. These were the two you had narrowed it down to when you weren’t expecting twins, so I think it’d be natural to go with them (and it’s great that they go together so well).
[name]George[/name] & [name]Orla[/name] - Sweet, but quite different in style and I’m not fond of the repeating ‘or’ sound. I think [name]Orla[/name] would go better with something like [name]Wyn[/name] and [name]George[/name] with [name]Poppy[/name], [name]Alice[/name] or [name]Annie[/name].
Otherwise I think [name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name] would be great.
And I realise this is a total long shot, but [name]Violet[/name] & [name]Jasper[/name] would be absolutely STUNNING and perfect with [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Rowan[/name] & [name]Tess[/name].

Best of luck!

[name]LOVE[/name] [name]Jasper[/name] and [name]Violet[/name], wow!!!

[name]Matthew[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name] “[name]Matt[/name] and [name]Theo[/name]”
[name]Winthrop[/name] and [name]Theodore[/name] “[name]Win[/name] and [name]Theo[/name]”

[name]Dorothy[/name] and [name]Anne[/name] “[name]Dora[/name] and [name]Anna[/name]”
[name]Matilda[/name] and [name]Tabitha[/name] “[name]Milla[/name] and [name]Tabby[/name]”

[name]Matthew[/name] and [name]Tabitha[/name] “[name]Matt[/name] and [name]Tabby[/name]”
[name]Winthrop[/name] and [name]Matilda[/name] “[name]Win[/name] and [name]Milla[/name]”

Any of these working?

[name]Violet[/name] is beautiful, especially with [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Rowan[/name], and [name]Tess[/name] (other gorgeous names, by the way). So if one or both of the twins is a girl, [name]Violet[/name] absolutely gets my vote. For the boys I am a bit stumped, so I reluctantly agree to [name]Jasper[/name]. I must admit I am not much of a fan but [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Rowan[/name], [name]Tess[/name], [name]Violet[/name], and [name]Jasper[/name] make a spectacular set. Congratulations!

I agree [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Jasper[/name] are perfect together, and even better with your other childrens’ names!
