What Would You Name My Twins?

Ok, so this is just fantasizing, but fantasy is fun right? I’ve always thought I’d someday have a son, then a daughter, then twin girls (twins run in my family and they tend to come with the third pregnancy). I have my son, [name_m]Benton[/name_m] [name_m]Grover[/name_m], and my daughter, [name_f]Arwen[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], and my husband and I would like to try for another pregnancy around this time next year. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for my twins!

So, looking to the possible future, what would you name my twins based on the following criteria and thoughts? I’m getting kind of bored with looking at my lists, so I thought it’d be fun to see what you Berries come up with. :slight_smile:

  • If one of the twins have a first name that ends with N, then they both have to have an N ending first name. My husband and I, as well as both of our kids, have N ending names. I wouldn’t want one of the twins getting left out.
  • I would prefer not to repeat the first initials B or A.
  • I also prefer for the twins not to share initials.
  • Our last name starts with the letters [name_m]MAN[/name_m], so take that into consideration. I love the name [name_f]Harriet[/name_f], but it’s a no because of the “hairy man” teasing possibility. :frowning:
  • Names not in the top 1000 would be awesome for first names, but if I really love a more popular name, I’m not completely opposed. [name_f]Luna[/name_f], [name_f]Iris[/name_f], and [name_f]Rose[/name_f] are some of my favorite names and it does make me sad that they’re leaning towards popular.
  • If I had to define my naming style I would call it quirky/vintage with some fantasy thrown in. I love goddess names! I have a harder time defining my husband’s naming style. He either really likes it or he hates it, but he does tend to like the more vintage names. One of his favorites is [name_f]Temperance[/name_f]. We also both love a lot of nature names.

I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with!!!

Oh how fun! Let’s see, [name_m]Benton[/name_m], [name_f]Arwen[/name_f], and twin girlies…

[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] and [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f] and [name_f]Thea[/name_f]
[name_f]Signe[/name_f] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Romilly[/name_f] and [name_f]Nyssa[/name_f]
[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u] and [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]

[name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] and [name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f]
[name_f]Marnie[/name_f] and [name_u]Vega[/name_u]

Sorry, I’m not as great at this as I thought I would be, lol.

[name_f]Minerva[/name_f] and [name_f]Linnea[/name_f]
[name_f]Wanda[/name_f] and Finna

[name_f]Rose[/name_f] and [name_f]Jocelyn[/name_f]

That was fun! Hopefully there’s a few names or even combinations that you like - I tried to make sure there were a few similar sounds in each combination, but it seems like you might have quite a search finding the perfect blend of you and your husband’s naming preferences; I sure found it hard!

Iridessa and [name_f]Zenobia[/name_f]
[name_f]Henrietta[/name_f] and [name_f]Minerva[/name_f]

Clarista and [name_f]Dorothea[/name_f]
[name_f]Honora[/name_f] and [name_f]Imogen[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Iris[/name_f] and [name_f]Thea[/name_f], [name_f]Tamsin[/name_f], and [name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f], [name_f]Diana[/name_f] and [name_f]Edith[/name_f], [name_f]Greta[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], and [name_f]Florence[/name_f] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]! My favorite is definitely [name_f]Luna[/name_f] and [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] though. I wish I could get my DH on board with [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]. It’s even a family name for me!

Keep ‘em comin’, Berries! This is fun! :slight_smile: I’m adding names to my list left and right!

This is fun for me as well! Here’s a few more that I love :slight_smile: I’m aiming to choose names below the top 200 line, so hopefully they’re unpopular enough!

These were suggested by another poster, can I just say that these are really lovely combinations. Good job

Sorry I’m just now getting back to this! I’ve had two sick little people on my hands for over a week! Made me rethink wanting twins for about two seconds and now I’m back to dreaming again. lol

[name_f]Helena[/name_f] and [name_f]Diana[/name_f] are to die for, lawsonhaley!

ashleyjuliette, I’m really loving a lot of the names you suggested, but I know they would make my husband raise an eyebrow. lol They’re great names though.

What about [name_f]Iris[/name_f] and [name_f]Flora[/name_f], suzywoo?

Those are great combos, eperdument, but not quite “me”.

Thanks for your input, everyone!

A combo I’ve been pondering is [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_f]Temperance[/name_f] and [name_f]Helen[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]. Thoughts? It would carry on the ends with N theme we accidentally started. [name_m]Both[/name_m] first names are kind of inadvertently inspired by my great grandmothers’ names, [name_f]Lena[/name_f] and [name_f]Emma[/name_f]. [name_m]Both[/name_m] middle names are virtue names. I just have to get the hubby on board with [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]. He loves [name_f]Temperance[/name_f], but he’s always shot [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] down.

Ending with -n

[name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_f]Georgina[/name_f] and [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Juno[/name_f]
Roseline [name_f]Faye[/name_f] and [name_f]Bonne[/name_f] [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]
[name_f]Cassiane[/name_f] [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Bronwen[/name_f] [name_f]Carys[/name_f]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Bryony[/name_f] and [name_f]Romilly[/name_f] [name_f]Helen[/name_f]
