Hi there. Twins are due reasonably soon. We both love Charles and Charlotte. Although they mean the same and are the female/male equivalent, they just seem like different names, IMO. 100% they would be Charlie and Lottie smile thank you x

No. Because everyone else may chose to call them Charlie and Charlie.

Charlie for a girl is awful, IMO and will never be encouraging that.

No you cannot.

No!

I know quite a few female Charlie's. You couldn't stop her being called that by her friends.

Sorry but you can't control what nicknames your kids get. If you don't like the obvious nicknames, don't choose the full version!

Just call them Charlie and Lottie then?

No! I don't like matchy names but especially not for twins - they need their own names.

No. Charlie and Charlie are not good names for twins.

Is this a joke post?

Wanderingwondering Mon 14-Mar-16 20:19:04

No

No!

It's like Phillip and Phillipa
Or Joseph and Josephine.

There are lots of lovely names out there.
Charlotte and Edward? Or James? Etc
Charles and Sophie / Emily / anna / Georgia?

Noo!! Pick one but not both. Poor twins.

camelfinger Mon 14-Mar-16 20:20:56

I think not, sorry.

No.

No sorry Charles and Charlotte are too similar IMO, regardless of the nn. Charlotte is the female version of Charles so it's like calling them Alexander and Alexandra or George and Georgina.

wallywobbles Mon 14-Mar-16 20:21:45

No. Just no.

GeorgeTheThird Mon 14-Mar-16 20:21:53

No. How about Paul and Paula?

SnowBallsAreHere Mon 14-Mar-16 20:26:54

No.
Carl & Carla.

No

It's different to Paul and Paula, they don't have different sounds... Charles and Charlotte does... I'm not doing it do make them match, they're just the only names we agree on

I like Paul and Paula. You don't get many of either these days.
