Middle names for twins

[name]Hi[/name]. i’m pregnant with twin girls due in january. me and my husband already have the first names but we don’t know what middle name to choose for both of the babies. we are going to name them [name]Zoey[/name] and [name]Izzie[/name]. Can you help us choose the middle name for our babies???

Did you mean [name]Zoey[/name]?

yes im sorry. i mean [name]Zoey[/name]

[name]Zoey[/name] and [name]Izzie[/name]

Is [name]Izzie[/name] a nn for [name]Isabel[/name]/la? Also, let me just say that I prefer the spelling [name]Zoe[/name] over [name]Zoey[/name]. It feels less yoo-neek to me:)

If [name]Izzie[/name] is a nn for [name]Isabel[/name] then some mn options i think flow well are:
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Delilah[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Cara[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Fiona[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Hazel[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

If it is for [name]Isabella[/name] then:
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Marie[/name] (oh wait, that’s [name]Bella[/name]'s name in twilight:)
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Renee[/name]
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Cate[/name]/[name]Kate[/name]
[name]Isabella[/name] [name]Carys[/name]

[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Alanna[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Willow[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

Ok good :slight_smile:

Here’s a bunch of suggestions with different styles:

[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Joyce[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Beth[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Frances[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Ramona[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Juniper[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Faith[/name]
[name]Zoey[/name] [name]Candace[/name]

[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Plum[/name]
[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Lucille[/name]
[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Camille[/name]
[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Louise[/name]
[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Wilhelmina[/name]
[name]Izzie[/name] [name]Annabel[/name]

I like the pairing of [name]Zoey[/name] and [name]Izzie[/name], but I do think [name]Zoey[/name] is a much more versatile name than [name]Izzie[/name]. [name]Zoey[/name] is fun to pair with middles and you can see how dramatically the style and feel of the name can change between [name]Zoey[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] and [name]Zoey[/name] [name]Juniper[/name], for example. I think that’s the appeal of the name even as it stands alone, and is a great name for that reason - whatever her personality, she can make it her own.
[name]Izzie[/name] is cute and playful, but it’s hard to make it anything other than that. It’s harder to pair it with a middle, because even a lovely middle like [name]Camille[/name] still doesn’t quite make [name]Izzie[/name] sound sophisticated.

I could see why you would be reluctant to use the full [name]Isabel[/name] (or a variant) seeing as its so popular, but would you be open to other suggestions that could get the [name]Izzie[/name] nn or something similar, or otherwise go with [name]Zoey[/name]?

I understand the appeal of the nickname [name]Izzy[/name], but it is a nickname. It doesn’t suit a grown woman in my opinion, and I would encourage you to find a name that you like that you can use [name]Izzy[/name] as a nickname for…

I also prefer the spelling [name]Zoe[/name] for this name, a great, versatile Greek name meaning “life”! It just looks a little more streamlined and elegant as [name]Zoe[/name] in my personal opinion!

Other names that go with [name]Zoe[/name] (if you decide you don’t want to use the nickname [name]Izzy[/name]):


[name]Do[/name] any of those appeal? I think [name]Zoe[/name] and [name]Iris[/name] is really cute!

A middle name will depend on the length of your last name, but here are some suggestions:

[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Alexandra[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Anastasia[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Callista[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Esmeralda[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Helena[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Melania[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Melissa[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Veronica[/name]

[name]Do[/name] you like any of those for [name]Zoe[/name]'s middle name? :wink:

[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Zoe[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]

[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]

Other sources of [name]Izzie[/name]: [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Isadora[/name]

You may also like [name]Ivy[/name], which is close in sound to [name]Izzie[/name].

Good luck!
