Names for twin girls

We are expecting twin girls in a couple of months.

We keep coming back to the name Grace for one twin, despite it being incredibly popular at the moment.

We also quite like Rose, Eva, Eve, Ada etc but nothing else seems to have stuck as much as Grace has.

Our surname begins with a vowel so names ending in 'a' can get a bit 'lost'.

Any ideas for classic names to go with Grace would be much appreciated, we would ideally shy away from anything too 'of the moment' and also would like to keep the name short so one poor kid doesn't have to worry about learning to spell something three times as long as her sister!

Congrats on your twins - I have twin girls too, but both with names ending in 'a'!

I love Grace, and I don't think it's overly popular at the moment, certainly not in our area. How about Ruby, Eloise, Ellen?

What about Hope?

StellaNova Mon 25-Mar-13 15:43:52

I think Grace and Rose are nice together.

Grace and Amy
Grace and Lily
Grace and Emily
Grace and Anna

StellaNova Mon 25-Mar-13 15:45:08

Sorry, meant Annie, Anna having an a!

Marrow Mon 25-Mar-13 15:50:05

Lucy, Molly, Faith, Ella. Love the name Grace smile

Marrow Mon 25-Mar-13 15:51:14

Scrap Ella, was forgetting they couldn't end in 'a'

Ellen is a family name but sadly practically rhymes with our surname. I like Lily, Rose and Emily -are they riding high in the 'name charts' at the moment?!

Ruby is certainly having a 'moment' round our way.

Oddly Eloise was in the running a few weeks ago but DH seems to have gone off it despite having a lot of fun signing The Damned song 'Eloise' to himself!

DebK2012 Mon 25-Mar-13 16:46:44

What about Elodie

What about Beth? It's as classic as Grace.

Anne/Hannah etc means Grace - might be a nice way to 'match' twins?

Starfish1980 Wed 27-Mar-13 17:57:19

I love Rowan....and Pearl...wish I could twist DH's arm.....i could come round to Esther, despite a horrid girl at school!! Lots of lovely we think Grace is too ridiculously popular at the moment?

GW297 Wed 27-Mar-13 18:16:21

I love the name Grace.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Wed 27-Mar-13 18:18:13

No I'd say top 20 for a few years but not overwhelming. Grace is pretty timeless, imo it suits a little girl, teen and grown woman.

KittenOfDoom Wed 27-Mar-13 19:12:58

Grace and ....


wiltingfast Wed 27-Mar-13 19:20:05

How about Caris? The personification of grace and beauty (apparently) smile

Or Thalia (one of the three graces)

Or Sian (god's grace)

fussychica Wed 27-Mar-13 19:25:11

Grace & Alice

Obvs always depends on how a first name sits with a surname before you can really decide.

eatyourveg Wed 27-Mar-13 19:29:21

Good luck with your decision! Grace is lovely. Think it is v popular as a middle name, but less so as a first name. It's beautiful. If you love it you will probably always wish you'd used it.

herladyship Thu 28-Mar-13 21:54:53

I think Grace goes with:

Love Grace and Honor as suggested above. It seems fitting to have another "Virtue" name. Hope also works well for same reason.
Other virtue names:

I am a twin and was teh unexpected one. my parents had picked a name for my sister, and then i was born very unexpectantly ( no good scans back then) and so my mother said she was so exhausted nd in shock at having 2 babies, she just split the name for my sister in half and gave me the arse of it!! seriously!!!

I have twin cousins called Megan Aoife and Emma Louise.

Grace and Megan? both beautiful and soft names

drdemi Thu 11-Apr-13 18:18:36

I love the name Grace!! How about Grace and Melissa or Grace and lucey-may or Grace and lacey-Leigh or Grace and rhona or Grace and Baily grin

BNmum Thu 11-Apr-13 20:41:10

Erin & Grace?

invicta Thu 11-Apr-13 20:44:13

I know sisters who are Grace and Lily.

redwellybluewelly Thu 11-Apr-13 23:06:29

We picked a name for dd which the year she was born was in the top five.

I've yet to meet another one. Sure I've heard it called in the supermarket and I know three adults with it as their first name but either east anglia doesn't reflect the name stats or it really doesn't matter

And Grace and Alice win my vote

Lisax3 Sun 14-Apr-13 23:50:57

Grace and Eliza

Lisax3 Sun 14-Apr-13 23:52:17

Ooops, sorry no A endings. I like Grace and Bronte or Grace and Scarlett

Grace is lovely. I know a Grace & Violet.

Personally though I would go with:

Grace & Annabelle.

OkayHazel Wed 17-Apr-13 00:09:14

harrygracejessica Wed 17-Apr-13 09:35:44

Kaekae Wed 17-Apr-13 11:59:30

Grace and Ada - very nice. A friend of mine recently gave her baby the middle name Ada.
