Need help naming our twin girls...

My husband and I are having a hard time naming our twin girls. He’s already strongly said no to my favorite, [name]Stella[/name]. He’s more into names with good meaning while I care more about how they sound. After losing [name]Stella[/name] I moved on to [name]Ella[/name] but was concerned about it being too popular. We are now both liking [name]Ariella[/name] as it has a strong meaning (lion of God) and it can be shortened to many options including [name]Ariel[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], etc.

So I’m looking for help with suggestions for our other girl if we use [name]Ariella[/name]. Another name I like is [name]Savanna[/name] but again it’s lacking on the meaning thing. Gah! :roll:

I tend to like names ending in “a”. Thanks in advance for any help!!! We need it!

If you like [name]Stella[/name] and [name]Ariella[/name], you might like these:

[name]Arabella[/name] - “beautiful altar”
[name]Christabel[/name] - “fair [name]Christian[/name]”
[name]Mirabelle[/name] - “wonderful”

I love [name]Arabella[/name], but [name]Mirabelle[/name] is really sweet. With [name]Arabella[/name], you’d get nicknames like [name]Ari[/name], [name]Bella[/name], [name]Belle[/name], and [name]Ella[/name]. With [name]Mirabelle[/name], you could use [name]Mira[/name], [name]Belle[/name], or [name]Elle[/name].

For a twin, you might like these:

[name]Beatrix[/name] - “she who brings happiness”
[name]Cordelia[/name] - “heart; daughter of the sea”
[name]Cosette[/name] - “victorious people”
[name]Eliza[/name] - “pledged to God”
[name]Evangeline[/name] - “bearer of good news”
[name]Genevieve[/name] - “woman of the people”
[name]Imogen[/name] - “beloved child”
[name]Juliet[/name] - “youthful”
[name]Miranda[/name] - “marvelous”

So, sets I like are, in no particular order:

[name]Miranda[/name] and [name]Jules[/name] - [name]Mira[/name] and [name]Jules[/name]
[name]Imogen[/name] and [name]Beatrix[/name] - [name]Gen[/name] and [name]Bea[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Beatrix[/name] - [name]Lizzie[/name] and [name]Bea[/name]
[name]Evangeline[/name] and [name]Mirabelle[/name] - [name]Evie[/name] and [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Arabella[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name] - [name]Bella[/name] and [name]Genni[/name]
[name]Arabella[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] - [name]Ari[/name] and [name]Jules[/name]
[name]Mirabelle[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name] - [name]Mira[/name] and [name]Jules[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Cordelia[/name] - [name]Lizzie[/name] and [name]Cora[/name]

Good luck!

[name]Ariella[/name] and [name]Evangeline[/name], [name]Ari[/name] & [name]Eva[/name] or
[name]Ariella[/name] and [name]Giavanna[/name], [name]Ari[/name] & [name]Gia[/name]?

Oh [name]Ariella[/name] is one of my favourite names so I hope I can help with her twin! :slight_smile: If me and my partner weren’t so in love with [name]Mirabella[/name] and [name]Angelica[/name] (which are both similar to [name]Ariella[/name]) we would most likely replace them with [name]Ariella[/name]!

Best of luck!!

[name]Ariella[/name] is nice! I agree with your husband on the meaning but it also needs to sound nice.

Here are some more names with great meanings that I think sound nice with [name]Ariella[/name]!

[name]Atarah[/name] - crown
[name]Moriah[/name] - seen by God
[name]Adalia[/name] - God is just
[name]Neriah[/name] - lamp of God
[name]Amariah[/name] - God has said (I know a little girl with this name)
[name]Phoebe[/name] - bright and pure
[name]Sela[/name] - rock
[name]Tirzah[/name] - favorable
[name]Azariah[/name] - God has helped

[name]Ariella[/name] and [name]Alina[/name].
[name]Alina[/name] has a beautiful meaning, no pun intended.

Rather [name]Alina[/name] and [name]Ariella[/name]. For some reason to me with multiples, the names have to be in alphabetical order.
