 Please Read All:

 One character is a young man with the surname Whittaker and nickname Joey. He has a twin sister - the main character of my story, in fact - that will need a name; and they both need smooth middle names that fit well with their first and last names. Their names should not be incredibly "matchy", like Michael and Michelle, but maybe a subtle matchy technique if you have any ideas.

 Their parents will also need full names. They share their last name with their parents; however, if anyone wants to know, the mother's maiden name was Sutton.


 (Sorry if I appear strict - I'm not really like that - I just want the best names I can get for my characters.)

I like Joseph Whittaker, though I'm not quite sure with a middle. Josephine is to matchy, right? I think Anna/Anne Whittaker would be wonderful.


Jospeh should have a more edgy middle, to smooth out the name. Like Paul. Joseph Paul?


Anne being my favourite should have a middle there is longer... Anne Colette?

I definitely like Joseph Whittaker for the guy :) 


For his twin, I'd imagine something classic or biblical would match really nicely. 




Carol / Caroline




Charlize / Charlotte

I like Joseph Whittaker and it makes more sense with the nickname Joey


Joseph Aidan Whittaker "Joey" and Esther Nadia Whittaker (Maybe Essie or Star as a nickname?) (Aidan and Nadia are backwards spellings of each other)


Parents: Victoria Elaine "Sutton" Whittaker and Nicholas Alexander Whittaker

Joseph is my pick!


I also like the previous suggestion of Beatrice, but then I remembered that is Tris's real name from Divergent!


So...maybe Alice or Annie, Charlotte or Clarity
