As you may have seen I origionally posted last night about suggestions for names to go with my 4 DC (Dexter, Nicholas, Sid and Poppy). Having come looked at some of the suggestions and other posts around MN we have come up with some ideas - feedback is very welcome!

Chester and Lennox
Dorian and Eric
Kit and Leon
Theo and Tor
Constantine and Arlo

What do you think? Similar suggestions are also welcome as is any other suggestions of what names go together smile

My vote's for Eric and Leon - they sound good together without being matchy.

I like Chester and Lennox, think they go best withyour other DCs.

I like Arlo, but Constantine is and bit meh to me. What would you shorten that to? Con, Connie, Tante? Kit and Arlo go well together.

God I was bad enough naming 1 DS (Blair if you are interested!! wink) Good luck!!

Eric, Leon and here too, fabsmile

I do rather like Dorian though ..but it does remind me of Birds of a Feather!

Kit and Eric

I like Lennox, Eric, Leon, Theo and Arlo. This is one from each of your pairs so I'd make other combinations - most of these would go well together.

I know a Tor, it's short for Torben which I think is Scandinavian. His brother was Alf.

I love Constantine (Conty) and Arlo.

Another vote for Eric. Not that keen on the other names, but it sounds best with Leon, so I would go with that!

Thanks all, it is really difficult! GlaikitFizzog Constantine would probably be nicknamed Stan? Hadn't really thought about it much.

autumngirl231 Thu 08-Sep-11 17:29:43

I think that, although I like most of the names, Constantine is a bit flash next to them so to use it you would need another long name that could be shortened.

Eg Constantine and Leonardo (Stan and Leo)

Dorian and Eric are great!

Oooh, Leon and Eric sound great together!

I like Chester and Lennox. Don't like Dorian. What about Jed and Theo?

I like Lennox and Kit best!

Dacshund over the road is called Chester...

Chester and Arlo

I have twin boys too. They are fabulous, good luck.
I like the way you havent gone matching.

Chester and Lennox
Dorian and Eric
Kit and Leon
Theo and Tor
Constantine and Arlo

I think I like Theo and Kit.

Theo and Tor are a bit samey. Constantine is a mouthful and not keen on Arlo but love Alfio (italian)

sorry to change the subject but HOW SHOCKED were you when you found out you were having twins after having 4 children??


Chynah Sat 10-Sep-11 23:00:51

please think of them as individuals rather than needing a matching pair of names.

upatdawn Sun 11-Sep-11 11:59:25

collision, we were very shocked but also very excited! Out of our 4 DC our oldest is 20 and we already have 15yo twin boys!

Chynah we are definitely thinking of them as individuals and are specifically looking for names that don't sound like matching pairs

Please dont use Dorian.

HorseyGirl1 Sun 11-Sep-11 22:08:52

Unless you want to lock his picture up in the attic that is ! :-)

But, that said if you really love it then use it. He's your little boy. You've been really blessed xx
