Baby Name Poll Results
Attention: Mommies vs. Of Multiples
Hi guys. I just found out I am having twin boys. This just got me excited about the naming process. I would like to know how you decided on naming your multiples. Was there meaning? Did you want them to match? Did they just go together as siblings? Could you guys give me some ideas to work off of? Thank you so much. P.S. This is my first pregnancy so I am already freaking out about having two at the same time, I don’t want to mess up their names as well. - Katie
The Top Baby Name is...
Hi, don’t have any multiples myself but I do have 4 boys and I’ve thought about naming patterns etc.!
I personally don’t like twin names that are what I think of as super matchy, i.e. Millie/Tillie, Tad/Brad. Donald/Donna. But I think you can get away with using the same letter if the names are different sounding, i.e. Elizabeth/Emily.
I would say just think about names you like and then pick 2 and see how they are when you say them together.
Don’t worry, it will be challenging to have 2 the first time, but you will learn fast. And you’ll be a master at dividing your attention from the start. I didn’t learn that until I went from baby #1 to baby #2!
Thank you poster one. The advice was greatly appreciated.
Poster 2, I wasn’t saying I couldn’t handle it, I was simply saying that its a lot different when you find out your pregnant, and then find out it is two instead of just one. But thank you for your advice. - Katie
Poster 2, ugh! Although I do agree there should be a balance with twin names. Apple/Isabella, not so good!
My twin sons are Spencer and Shane...we liked the idea of the same letter but not rhymy or matchy names...if that makes sense.
I didn’t want the first names to sound too alike because that could get confusing but I still wanted them to match. Their names are Charlie Edward and Elsa Chase so they share elements without being to close.
