I'm expecting twins in about 6 weeks, I know they are identical but don't know what sex. My husband and I like Martha, Annie, Evelyn and Orla if they are girls, not sure what combination or middle names! However we have no ideas for boys....like not one!!

We have two children already, a boy and a girl. They both have names that are on the boundary between traditional and unusual.

Please help with any suggestions.

I have twin boys and EXH overruled all my choices, but I dearly wanted to call them Basil and Leopold. However even I'm not that cruel; I'd have settled for Freddie and Harry. I succeeded with one of them.

Thank you. I really like Jude and Alexander and I love Felix. Don't think I will get my husband on board. He votes James and Tom. Lovely names but combined with our ultra dull surname are a bit bland I think.

Thomas And Gerald
William and Benjamin
Stanley and Oliver
William and Edward
Fred and Barney
Syd and Eddie

Starsky and Hutch

I love the names Martha and Orla, but not sure if they go together. confused

If I had twin boys I'd call them Hamish and Bruce. Or Edward and George. Or Jonas and Milo.

If I had twin girls I'd call them Genevieve/Jenny/Anna/Charlotte (Lottie)/Lara I can't decide tonight.

JRoo Fri 28-Nov-14 22:27:16

Rufus and Barney
Louis and Tristan?

monkeymamma Fri 28-Nov-14 22:43:18

Or

Konrad and Geraint
Jonty and Hector
Edwin and Jacob

moxon Sat 29-Nov-14 19:18:50

MsCoconut Sat 29-Nov-14 22:20:59

On a more serious note, I like your DH's choice.

Bland is better than shite grin

I grew up with a distinctive furet name and a surname that needs spelling out all the time.

Thanks to a boom in popularity of my name about 20 years ago - and on going - and a traditional English "occupation" married surname, I now have a bland name, as do my children. I love it. I like to think I sm memorable for reasons other than my name.
