Just discovered the twins we're expecting next year are both boys!

DH and I are stuck. He's vetoed Alexander and I'm vetoing William
(for Windsorish reasons!)

Already have a DS and DD. Naming prefs are for classic, formal names with plenty of decent nickname potential.

Want DCs to be able to adapt their name to suit rather than be defined by our tastes IYSWIM.

Ah I was going to suggest William! I'm no royalist either but it does seem to fit your criteria.

Edward & Christopher
Edward & Peter
Edward & Quentin
Edward & Henry
Edward & Theodore

George
Samuel
John
Benedict

Id go for Alexander of your two. Thomas was my first thought on seeing the title.

Not sure about the decent nickname potential of William though - Will, Willy grin

disappointing about Alexander, I have one and it goes well with Edward (and he is a twin!). Charles? Alastair? James? Archie?

Not John.

Then they'd be Jedward. smile

Edward and Quentin????

My cousin called her twins Edward and William, the names do seem to work well together. How about George or Henry?

Edward and Nicholas.
Aka Ted and Nick.

How about wilfred, or is the "ed" ending too similar to Edward?

Don't pick anything that could be combined to form Jedward!!

I love Edward!

Edward and Sebastian?
