No. vs. Yes.

Hello, I’m being blessed with girl/girl twins after another four years of trying to get pregnant for our last time. We already have three boys and a girl. Travis Clay 11, Gunner Scott 9, Kyle Oliver 8, and Sydney Rose, 6. Now, here’s my question, I am due in four weeks and I had planned on naming my twins Ellie Jean and Lily Katelyn. The middle names both honor someone, so I don’t want suggestions on that; my question is do you think Ellie and Lily are too close for siblings? And do you think they go well with my other children? All of my girls’ names honor someone, so once again I will take no middle name suggestions, but I’m open to fn ones. Thanks, sorry this is so long. THanks again! ~Nannie, Dave, Travis, Gunner, Kyle, Sydney, and twins.

Ellie Jean and Lily Katelyn are very sweet names and are close but not too close. They are very cute and i think you should go for it. but if you are really worried how about:
Elisabeth/Elizabeth Jean nn Ellie
Liliane Katelyn nn Lily

I like twin names with the same ending sounds or beginning letter, they should be similar. I agree that they are close but not too close :)

They are too similar, and Lily and Katelyn clash also.

Eleanor Jean nn Ellie, Ella, Elle
Regina Katelyn nn Gina, Kate, Lynn

Thanks guys, I didn’t really see Lily and Katelyn clashing, but if you think so...
Anyways, I like most the suggestions so far.
Keep them coming please! I’m really liking maybe Elisabeth with Ellie as a nick name, because it compliments the shorter middle name.

Thanks everyone!

i know you said no mn options but Lily Katelyn does clash. But since its to honor some on maybe shorten it to Lily Kate? Im glad you like Elisabeth nn Ellie :-)

Lily and Katelyn don’t clash! But I don’t like Lily at all with such beautiful names. What about:

Ellie Katelyn
Gracie Jean

Lily is cute, but Ellie is way too nicknamey for my taste.
Eleanor Jean nn Ellie
Lillian Katelyn nn Lily

I don’t think they’re too close but what about switching them around? Lily Jean & Ellie Katelyn sound better to me personally.

Why not go with Lily Jean and Ellie Katelyn, although I agree that Lillian and Elizabeth sound much prettier and less nickname-ish.

Lila, Lilla as an alt, or Ella? Am loving Elisabeth and Lilian, tho.

Love Elizabeth Jean and Lily Kate separately but when you say Ellie and Lily they’re too close. If you wanted to you could just forget Ellie and have Lily and Elizabeth. GL with your twins!
