We’re expecting twin girls in late [name_f]May[/name_f] and are stuck on names! Probably because we both want to choose names that honor strong historical women but still feel modern. We’re finding that to be limiting, especially because our families expect to give them nicknames.
[name_u]Baby[/name_u] #1 is [name_f]Maya[/name_f] [name_f]Ruth[/name_f], nn [name_f]Ruthie[/name_f]?? (for [name_f]Maya[/name_f] [name_f]Angelou[/name_f] and RBG) but we’re lost on baby #2. We like [name_f]Adrienne[/name_f], but are worried it doesn’t match with [name_f]Maya[/name_f] and/or is too dated. Our short list for middles is: [name_u]Simone[/name_u], [name_f]Kahlo[/name_f], and [name_f]Jane[/name_f]. I think [name_f]Ruthie[/name_f] and [name_f]Janie[/name_f] would be adorable but hubby doesn’t like [name_f]Jane[/name_f] enough for fn status. If we use it as a middle I might just call her [name_f]Janie[/name_f] anyway.
What combo do you like best? We’d also welcome suggestions for other firsts/middles!
