Expecting twin girls in [name]April[/name]. Already have one name picked out [name]Aubrey[/name] [name]Jade[/name]. BUt, we are stumped on the second name but want to it to “match” and be as equally cute. The two names being thrown around are [name]Laylah[/name] and [name]McKenna[/name] with no wow factor for a middle name for either of the two except for [name]Laylah[/name] [name]Monroe[/name]. Any suggestions for other names to match [name]Aubrey[/name] [name]Jade[/name] and/or middle name suggestions for [name]Laylah[/name] and [name]McKenna[/name].

Thank you!!!:smiley:

I think [name]Laylah[/name] is the best option, but spelled [name]Layla[/name] with out the H.

I like the idea of something like [name]Layla[/name] [name]Ashley[/name], or [name]Layla[/name] [name]Chloe[/name].

I also prefer the [name]Layla[/name] spelling. or even [name]Leila[/name].

There are several ways to match twin names: meaning, initial, spelling, or sound.

Meaning: [name]Aubrey[/name] means elf ruler

Siofra (Shee-fra) means elf or sprite.
[name]Elfreda[/name] means elf strength.
[name]Alba[/name] means elf.

Initial: A.

[name]Aerin[/name] (Tolkien Middle [name]Earth[/name] name, it’s Elvish)

Spelling: [name]Aubrey[/name]


Sound: [name]Aubrey[/name]

[name]Alexandra[/name], [name]Alison[/name] nn. [name]Allie[/name]
[name]Charlotte[/name] nn. [name]Charlie[/name]
[name]Cordelia[/name] nn. [name]Corey[/name]
[name]Elizabeth[/name] nn. [name]Lizzie[/name]
[name]Mary[/name], [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Siri[/name], [name]Story[/name]
[name]Victoria[/name] nn. [name]Tori[/name]

I don’t like the spelling of [name]Laylah[/name], because it looks like [name]Lay[/name] Low. I would spell it [name]Leila[/name]. It looks more exotic whereas [name]Laylah[/name] looks made up. [name]McKenna[/name] means “son of the handsome one.” I know that [name]Aubrey[/name] was used as a boys name but know it works for a girl due to its closeness to [name]Audrey[/name]. I would go with [name]Leila[/name].

[name]Aubrey[/name] (elf ruler) [name]Jade[/name] (jewel name)
[name]Leila[/name] (night) [name]Diamond[/name] (jewel name: [name]April[/name] birthstone) or [name]Leila[/name] [name]Ruby[/name]

[name]Aubrey[/name] [name]Jade[/name] and:

[name]Leila[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Emerald[/name] [name]McKenna[/name]
[name]Laurel[/name] [name]Amber[/name]
[name]Opal[/name] [name]Monroe[/name]
[name]Leila[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Layla[/name] would be my next preference. The [name]Laylah[/name] spelling looks overwrought to me.

Some ideas for first name:


Also, [name]Zoe[/name] might make a great middle name for [name]Laylah[/name] or [name]McKenna[/name].

[name]Love[/name] the previous suggestion of [name]Harper[/name]. I think it has that same jaunty unisex vibe as [name]Aubrey[/name] and [name]Monroe[/name]. Like other posters, I prefer [name]Leila[/name] to [name]Laylah[/name], and am not on the [name]McKenna[/name] bandwagon.

Other saucy unisex options:
[name]Rory[/name] (sometimes short for [name]Aurora[/name])

To avoid pronunciation problems, I would go with [name]Layla[/name]. I think [name]Leila[/name] would get mispronounced as “Lie-luh.”
