What do you think of these names for boy/girl twins? We've been through every name list ever and these seem to be the only names we agree on. (Taken on board the 'Mabel' thread - can see it's a marmite name.)

Love Theodore but not Mabel

I think they are beautiful names! Great nicknames for when they are little, but equally lovely for when they are older. And a few different options on the NN's too. All good! grin

Gorgeous though I prefer Maybelle to Mabel.

We have a Teddy, though his proper name is Edward smile

If it's "Belle" you like as a shortening for Mabel would you consider Annabelle or Isabelle? Little more mainstream perhaps? I don't dislike Mabel it's just to me that's the name of the Blue Peter dog.

I love ted/teddy but prefer it as a shortening of Edward.

Theodore would get Theo, not Teddy

VocationalGoat Mon 30-May-16 13:16:45

Theodore is our son's name, so of course I LOVE it.
We went with Theo.
But call him Teddy/Ted and everyone else will too. I don't get the comment, "He'll end up Theo." No he won't.
My Theodore is a teen now. But he was born in the States and everyone started calling him Ted by default. As soon as I made it clear we were sticking with Theo as a nn, there was no issue.
Congratulations!
We used to call him 'Theodorable'. smile
He'd kill us in our sleep if we called him that now. grin

VocationalGoat Mon 30-May-16 13:17:06

And I love Mabel too!

I've got a Teddy I've had him since I was a baby he's a bit tatty now but I still love him. Not keen on it for a baby though nor mabel it's not a nice name at all

TurquoiseMoon Mon 30-May-16 13:30:08

I'm not keen on Theodore or Mabel, but like Teddy and Belle smile

moobear14 Mon 30-May-16 13:46:18

Love them! smile

Pinklily1 Mon 30-May-16 18:02:30

I think both are lovely.

My natural instinct for an abbreviation of Theodore would be Theo, however, it can be shortened to Teddy as well.

MardleBum Mon 30-May-16 18:05:46

Teddy works fine for Theodore but Belle is a bit of a stretch to far for Mabel. If you like Belle then just call her Belle. Although personally I don't like Belle and prefer Mabel.

Theodore and Mabel - absolutely lovely!
