Name Sage: Classic Names for Boy-Girl Twins

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Berries -

This week’s Name [name_u]Sage[/name_u] post is for [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f]. She’s expecting boy-girl twins!

They will join:

  • [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
  • [name_m]Jason[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m]
  • [name_u]John[/name_u] [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m]
  • [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_f]Caitlin[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Abigail[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]

[name_m]Classic[/name_m] names preferred - they’ve already used up all of their favorites!

See my suggestions here, and I’d love to hear what you would add.

Best,
[name_u]Abby[/name_u], The Name [name_u]Sage[/name_u]

Well, I have to suggest [name_f]Marianne[/name_f] in this situation! Both because I am rather obsessed with this favourite name of mine and because it genuinely seems a beautiful fit in this classic sibset. Some middle suggestions:
[name_f]Marianne[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]
[name_f]Marianne[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Marianne[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f]

And what about [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] as a first?

For baby boy, how about [name_u]Jasper[/name_u]? It pairs so well with other classic names, e.g…
[name_u]Jasper[/name_u] [name_u]Robert[/name_u]
[name_u]Jasper[/name_u] [name_u]David[/name_u]
[name_u]Jasper[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m].

If [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] would like to break away from the J names, perhaps [name_u]Robin[/name_u] would be a good choice?
[name_u]Robin[/name_u] [name_u]Arthur[/name_u]
[name_u]Robin[/name_u] [name_m]Lewis[/name_m]
[name_u]Robin[/name_u] [name_m]Patrick[/name_m]

I can also see [name_m]Tobiah[/name_m] or [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] fitting in well.

I love these sibling names!

I love a number of your suggests. [name_f]My[/name_f] favourites would be [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] and [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]. [name_u]Or[/name_u] if following the J theme: [name_u]Jude[/name_u] and [name_f]Rose[/name_f] - or maybe [name_u]Judah[/name_u] and [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]?

[name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]Jason[/name_m], [name_u]John[/name_u], [name_f]Hannah[/name_f], [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f], [name_f]Abigail[/name_f] and…

I loved the suggestions for the boys - especially [name_u]Joseph[/name_u], [name_u]Michael[/name_u] and [name_u]Charles[/name_u]

I can see
[name_m]Deacon[/name_m]

[name_m]Samuel[/name_m]
[name_m]Simon[/name_m]
[name_u]Timothy[/name_u]

Boys names that work:
[name_u]Joseph[/name_u]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Mathew[/name_m]
[name_u]Robert[/name_u]

Girls names that fit:
[name_f]Ella[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Julia[/name_f]
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f]

@EdgeOftheMeadow - [name_f]Marianne[/name_f] is lovely! And it fits, as a first or a middle. Swooning over [name_f]Marianne[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f].

@MusicWaves - Agree re: [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] + [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]! But now I’m loving [name_u]Judah[/name_u] + Rosalie/Jude + [name_f]Rose[/name_f], too.

@Ehrob1 - [name_f]Glad[/name_f] you liked some of the suggestions, especially [name_u]Michael[/name_u]! I feel like it’s getting overlooked. (Which is also crazy, because I know so. many. Mikes. But very few Michaels.) And [name_u]Sam[/name_u] is SUCH a good thought, too …

@Sophie_M - [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is a good idea! I feel like they MUST have considered [name_u]Joseph[/name_u] for a boy already, right? But maybe [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] for a daughter is even better …

Hey! one of their kids has my first and middle name :joy: I feel uniquely qualified to give my mother’s favorites

[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] & Patrick… but there’s definitely a J theme going on here so maybe [name_m]Patrick[/name_m] for the middle.

[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] & [name_u]Joseph[/name_u]! (Coco and Jojo!)

Perhaps [name_m]Joel[/name_m], if you want to keep the J theme but have decided against [name_m]Jacob[/name_m] or [name_u]Joseph[/name_u].

For girls- maybe [name_f]Claire[/name_f], [name_f]Ella[/name_f], or Emily/Emma?

[name_u]James[/name_u], [name_m]Jason[/name_m], [name_u]John[/name_u], and:
[name_u]George[/name_u]. (I love [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] – that is my son’s name --) so [name_u]George[/name_u] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] or [name_u]George[/name_u] [name_u]William[/name_u].

[name_f]Hannah[/name_f], [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f], [name_f]Abigail[/name_f], and

[name_f]Susanna[/name_f]. [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f] or [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_u]Louise[/name_u].

I would use a J initial for the male twin. Some ideas are:

[name_u]Jude[/name_u] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] and [name_f]Naomi[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]

I’d suggest

[name_u]Lawrence[/name_u] [name_u]George[/name_u] and [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] [name_f]Victoria[/name_f]

-Jonathan & [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] (or [name_m]Mathias[/name_m] or Nathaniel)
-Samuel & [name_f]Eliana[/name_f] (or Zachary)
-Josiah & [name_f]Raffaella[/name_f]

It seems that your boys names have a pattern of starting with J and your girls have a pattern of starting with anything else.
