Thor and Loki.. Or Cain and Abel
Would be a useful social experiment

Kenneth and Killer.
Cara and Cruella.

I am a fan of children for social experimentation.

Unfortunately the less scientific killjoys on the Ethics Board didn't agree with me and wouldn't allow me to publish my findings. grin

Magnus and Agnes.

DP suggested Spit and Swallow hmm

When I was pregnant with DD and DS3, we jokingly referred to them as Luke and Leia. A surprising number of people thought we were actually going to go with that! We might be Star Wars fans, but that would be a step too far.

Also glad we didn't go with DS2's suggestion of Jordan and Poppet.

aaaaah, easy as have gg twins grin

They are Sasha and Talia (shortened from Natalia).

If I'd have had bb twins, they would have been Lewis and Levi.

Not sure about bg, but would probably have plumped for Sasha and Lewis.

My twin girls are called Georgina & Megan. If they were boys they would have been Matthew & James.
