Just discovered the twins we're expecting next year are both boys!

DH and I are stuck. He's vetoed Alexander and I'm vetoing William
(for Windsorish reasons!)

Already have a DS and DD. Naming prefs are for classic, formal names with plenty of decent nickname potential.

Want DCs to be able to adapt their name to suit rather than be defined by our tastes IYSWIM.

Another vote for Edward and Joseph or Edward and Oliver. Or actually I quite like Joseph and Oliver. wink

How about Leo or Jon or Nicholas or Toby ? I think Theodore is a bit similar to Edward with the e d

Sebastian much better IMO.
You can't control nicknames and you may well end up with Ed and Ted if you go with Theodore...

Ed and Ted

Edward and Zachary
Edward and Isaac
Think they have nice rings without being samey at all and ed and Zak are good nicknames.
Congratulations on your pregnancy

Thank you all so much.
There is a wicked little bit of me that is terribly tempted by some of the comedy combinations but, having read the suggestions out to the family, DH likes Sebastian and the DCs like Theodore.

I think both are lovely so am letting them thrash it out between them!

We all liked lots of the other suggestions too but they are taken by friends/family.

Thanks again, hugely helpful of you all.

Tobias (Toby) or Sebastian? I think Ed and Seb sounds quite good shortened.

I have an Edward
His brother is Hugo
Two names that go together I think

I quite like the thomas and friends connection and liked Bertie as well.And Toby.
All the Thomas names are classic, well the original ones anyway.

Aw congratulations on your pregnancy and twins grin

I love the names suggested here. I LOVE Edward and love the nn Teddy/Eddie. (DS best friend is an Eddie from Edward) They also have friends called George and Joe and Eddie, Thomas, Joe and George all seem to go well together!

My DS is Thomas Joseph so may be a bit biased in liking those with it!

My favourites from the suggested ones above are Edward and Theodore and Edward and Sebastian. (although Ed/Ted and Seb may be a bit of a mouthful!)

I feel a little sad for the twin boy who is getting his name chosen based mainly on whether it goes with his brother's name.

Why not just find a name you like?

But I don't have twins, so maybe there's something I'm missing.
