to think these twins' names are ludicrous?

Toddlers - Dick and Fanny.
Not short for anything, apparently. British family.
Lordy.

Depends.
If Dick is a girl, and Fanny is a boy, then yes they are ridiculous

Perhaps their parents are fans of the Famous Five smile

Keep calm and carry on - nostalgia is the new black.

I feel sorry for the twins, school will be unbearable for them.

Is this for real? Those are still common euphemisms for genitalia in Britain. The children are going to get tormented at school and probably everywhere all the time until they are old enough to change their names. They are going to hate their parents. I suspect the parents are trying to be different by digging up old names but there is a reason that some names fell out of fashion!

There's another tedious thread about this.

For real? What were they thinking?
