I am expecting twin girls. We've decided on Ruby and Lily for first names, but have no idea on middle names! Maybe something quite long. Sibling's names are Luca Alistair, Isla Elspeth, Finn Matthew & Zach Francis, so they must go with them.

I think whatever you choose, they should both have the same one. Wouldn't that be so cool?
You obviously like the exotic, so how about Star? Chase?
Or...
Ruby scarlett
Lily blanca
(see what I did there)
Or cross over the scarlett/blanca, so they are each called the other's names as well...

Definitely not both the same middle name! That would be awful, twins are not just a cute pair, they do have the own identity too you know!

Thanks. I like Eleanor and Francesca. I also like Florence and Scarlett, but I can't use them because they're my sisters' middle names. I prefer quite old-fashioned middle names though

Ruby Imogen
Ruby Caroline
Ruby Victoria
Ruby Gabrielle

Lily Marguerite

Elizabeth is the same name as Elspeth. I would choose something else.

I have a Ruby Ava

EvangelineGracelyn Sat 19-Oct-13 11:27:05

I like Genevieve too! There's so many on my list now.

If you have 2 sisters, why not give each twin a middle name after each sister?

EvangelineGracelyn Sat 19-Oct-13 15:49:41

No, I have 7 sisters! Although, my triplet sisters are called Anastasia and Esmabella, so that could be quite cute. Ruby Esmabella and Lily Anastasia?

EvangelineGracelyn Sat 19-Oct-13 17:31:42

Anymore suggestions?

CruCru Sat 19-Oct-13 17:39:33

What about

Elizabeth
Rosalind
Miriam
Marianne
Eleanor
Hannah
Margaret
Rebecca

Rtfairy Sat 19-Oct-13 19:15:46

Lovely names. How about Ruby Elizabeth and Lily Charlotte?

EvangelineGracelyn Sat 19-Oct-13 19:55:17

Not so keen on Charlotte and I'm starting to think that Elizabeth is too much like Elspeth

Shosha1 Sat 19-Oct-13 19:56:15

Ruby Ruth

Lily Leonie

Knew sisters with these names smile

EvangelineGracelyn Sun 20-Oct-13 00:28:31

Opinion on Isadora as one of them? Would probably be Lily Isadora

BillyBanter Sun 20-Oct-13 00:30:24

Ruby Calypso
and Lily Isadora

EvangelineGracelyn Sun 20-Oct-13 00:44:48

Not so keen on Calypso...

BillyBanter Sun 20-Oct-13 00:45:33

Fine!

I like Ruby Isadora.

The short I sound in Lily is the same as the one in Isadora and I think there's too little variety in the vowel sounds of Lily Isadora.

CordeliaRose Sun 20-Oct-13 16:12:24

Wow EvangalineGracelyn seven sisters!
Lily Francesca and Ruby Genevieve are lovely.

Yet more suggestions to add to the mix:
Lily Ariadne
Lily Helena
Lily Juniper
Lily Marianne
Lily Valentine
thanks
Ruby Celeste
Ruby Celestine
Ruby Coraline
Ruby Gabrielle
Ruby Mariella
