Struggling with twin name ideas!

Im pregnant with twin boys and we are kinda stuck on names lol.

We already have a Harry James and twin girls Grace Lucy and Jessica Rose so we do like the older names rather than the new trendy ones.

Middle names will be John and David, one name we agree on is Oliver and Harry helped pick it which means alot.

Other names are......

Elliot,
Samuel (i like he doesnt)

and thats about it lol, Without realising it all 3 kids so far have different starting and different last letters of first names but really no names beginning with the same is kind of vital (for us!)

So no names beginning with H, J, G or A and B (last 2 due to surname!)

Any ideas??

Matthew? Oliver and Matthew sound nice together for brother names.
I know a woman who has 2 sons (not twins) called David John and John David!I'm not saying its a good idea as I think its weird but the middle names reminded me of them! grin

Crikey. Your DH is hard to please! From your list I would have an Oliver John and a Samuel David, or an Isaac John and Oliver David. Isaac and Oliver compliment each other well.

Can't help thinking you are going to have your hands full. Good luck!

Yes I was going to say Isaac John and Oliver David too

or Isaac David and Elliot John

Don't suppose he likes Samson?

"well actually he likes the name Sam but not Samuel"

I dont like the name Samson.

snice Mon 10-Jan-11 22:29:28

Elliot John sounds too much like Elton John for me (sorry)

I have b/g twins who are now 13, but if I was naming boys now, I'd choose
William
Owen (my son's name)
Edward
Patrick
Rory
James
George
All are names that worked 13 yrs ago and still work today, and will still work in 13 yrs time.

ShoppingDays Mon 10-Jan-11 22:43:07

Didn't think you would... ah well

Keziahhopes Mon 10-Jan-11 23:30:03

Isaac and Oliver go well, with your middle names too.

purpleiris Mon 10-Jan-11 23:38:49

I have an Oliver and I love Isaac!! I also think Oliver and Benjamin sound fab! And I thought they fit your criteria, but the B doesn't! Hmmm.

Keziahhopes Mon 10-Jan-11 23:48:21

Hey Purpleiris - I have chosen Benjamin and was thinking of Isaac as a middle name - grin

purpleiris Mon 10-Jan-11 23:55:54

I love Benjamin Isaac, and also Isaac Benjamin!! DH vetoed Benjamin because we have a close family relation with a dog Ben and it also doesn't suit our surname sad

Keziahhopes Tue 11-Jan-11 19:03:21

Oh what a shame; at least you found a name you liked! Now just one you agree on. How about using the names for your middle name with Isaac? Such as

Elliot Isaac or
Isaac Elliot?
