My best friend is due this week, she is expecting a set of boy & girl twins and is absolutely desperate for name ideas. She's asked me to post this on mumsnet to help find some new suggestions.
At the moment she is quite a fan of Sonny for the boy but says she could be persuaded to change. However its the girl she is really stuck on, she already has a dd Blake and hates girly/popular/long/very traditional names for example Isabel, Esme, Lilly, Ava, Savannah, Catherine are all big No's.
So the twins have been named! Congrats to my friend Cate was a long labour. Thanks for all the input it really helped. The names are:
(As expected) Sonny Grey Wilkes
Parker Peony Wilkes
I know that alliterations are frowned upon on mn but I think its sweet and what was explained to me is she wanted to give them both options. She feels Sonny is quite feminine and Parker quite masculine so if they prefer it the the other way they can use their middle names and be Grey and Peony. I realise its a change from the original brief of not girl but apparently she had an 'epiphany' and completely changed her tune, it was between Poppy, Posey and Peony, think she made the right choice.
