Way too matchy. You really should check out some books on twins and why its not a good idea to name them matchy names.

Awful. They are individuals!
Cute, but WAY too matchy, and kind of tacky. I think you should keep one of the names and get rid of the other. I’d keep Valentino. Perhaps Valentino and:
Any tickle your fancy?
Hey, Poster 7, Poster 5 didn’t say anything rude. There’s no reason to tell her to shut up.
From Joan A. Friedman and her book Emotionally Healthy Twins. The key to raising kids who fit the title is to treat them as unique individuals from as early on as possible. This applies to how you conceptualize and talk about them in utero. It also applies to the names you give them at birth, the ships on which they will sail through the journey of childhood. Opting for names that are sufficiently different is a metaphor of their separate trajectories. The author, a twin herself, recommends avoiding a common first letter or any pair that sounds too matchy. The fact that her identical twin is called Jane was a source of consternation for her as a child, not of fun. “I longed for a name that was different enough from my sister’s,” she writes, “so that people would know me for who I was.”
