TheOnlyOliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 04-Oct-13 17:24:45

We don't know whether we're having two boys, two girls or boy/girl.
Molly and Huck from West Wing is one possibility grin
and obviously all gin- based combos also welcomed gringrin[gin]

So please list the twins you know - would be a massive help.
TIA

Also SoMuch says (she is a twin herself) DO NOT give them alliterative names (see Heather and Hilary above) or rhyming names. It's not cute, it's horrible, and doesn't help the children to be seen as individuals.

My G/G twins are Sophie and Charlotte.

Another good reason to avoid alliteration is that they would have the same first initial and the same birthday - not good for post or credit references, especially when at the same address.

I recommend you give them similar length names. My twins are learning to write, and I can imagine how much tougher it would be if one had a long name and one had a short name :-) eg. elizabeth would be furious that max learned to write his name quicker, as it 's so much shorter. It also stops a lot of arguments over who has the longest name (can't help with who's oldest/biggest/fastest etc though!)

Twins are fab, congratulations!

I have twins too.

The one thing you may like to consider is to give the 1st born twin a name further down on the alphabet.
So you know, the 2nd born twin is called first (obviously when called alphabetically).
Just so they're not always 2nd IYKWIM.
I did this but have no intention of telling them, ever.

One word of advice: do try saying both names, fast, both ways round. Does it work? Or will you end up, like friends of ours, with irritated twins known to all as Polly-and-Hoppy?

Well it's not just one name is it?!
There are TWO! and I need three combos innit?!?
and they sort of have to go with DS1 and DS2's name (and not over-alliterate)
SO many things to consider

I see you completely ignored my suggestion <huff>

Or, if you really don't like Chipping & In, <though I can't see why you wouldn't like it> you could always go with B1 & B2

Well, working with MNers already has me halfway there grin
But thank you grin

What do you THINK you're having?

I had a hunch that I had one girl. With infallible logic I failed to extrapolate that that meant I was probably also having one boy, which is what I had!

So, when mine arrived rather ahead of schedule, I had one girls' name, and absolutely no boys names. Hospital loved me with 'Baby Um...'!

Good luck!

Olivia m'dear! Long time no chat grin

I think you should call your twins batman and robin. It works for b/b or b/g! I'm sure that in a few years batman will be a unisex name too, so you could get in early if it's g/g.

McPie Sat 12-Oct-13 21:49:09

I have the pleasure of having Sophie and Ryan, whos names were picked by ds1 (5 at the time), they would have been Kimberly and Greg if Granny hadn't said to him that there was already a Greg in the family, there is but its dh's cousins son who none of the 3 of us had/have even met! Days later he changed his mind about the first choice names and I'm glad as they fit them perfectly.

Personally, I really didn't want to give mine names beginning with the same letter. I also did what a previous poster suggested and gave the 1st born twin a name that came later in the alphabet than the 2nd twin's.

Steer well clear of rhyming or anything cutesy and matching. They're two individual human beings, not a chance to give everyone a cheap laugh.

In Behind The Scenes At The Museum (brilliant book!) the twin girls are called Ruby and Pearl. I love this so much that I secretly hanker after twin girls just so I can use this name combo.

Not going to happen though as scan yesterday confirmed there is definitely only one in there and I never want to experience morning sickness again so I am stopping after this baby!

My DTs' names are on my list but not outing myself! wink

Welcome to Planet Mayhem. Hectically busy (worth every second), where you acquire an uncanny ability to spot a set of twins at 300 paces, the ability to feed/change nappies whilst having a micro-doze, and have your heart melted when your DTs proclaim that they are each other's best friends shortly after attempting to decapitate each other!

Congratulations thanks

Seriously though, think about the last syllable. My sister and I have the same last as my sister (both end -el). It was impossible to tell who was being shouted when Mum was calling us!
