Hi! New here. We have 2 twin sets that we can't pick from.

Brodie and Gracie
Oliver and Elinor

Which one? smile

Can I be contrary and say Brodie and Elinor?!

All lovely names though.

Congratulations and welcome!

Oliver and Elinor are the nicer names imo, but I think they are a bit too samey. Don't like Brodie.

Oliver and Eleanor for me

Is Brodie for a boy? I've only heard it for girls recently.

Oliver and Gracie I like.

Rainbows2016 Wed 24-Aug-16 16:48:14

We like it spelt Elinor.

Brodie is definitely for a boy! Scottish origin.

Love Brodie, prefer Grace to Gracie, did you want them to sound similar?

Only one I don't like is Gracie.

Brodie and Gracie is adorable X

Far prefer the Elinor spelling.

NappingRabbit Wed 24-Aug-16 17:18:03

Oliver and Grace (sorry)

I think the less common spelling of Elinor will really annoy her throughout her life.
Out of the 4, I'd choose Oliver and Grace
OK - I know I've adapted it slightly, but, I think 'Gracie' is a real 'little girl's name'. why not call her Grace, and you can still refer to hr as Gracie while she is little, but it's not her actual name for more formal, adult times.

Vixxfacee Wed 24-Aug-16 17:22:48

I agree with pp Oliver and Grace.

ThatsWotSheSaid Wed 24-Aug-16 17:24:05

Oliver and grace (or Gracie)

Swearwolf Wed 24-Aug-16 17:24:06

I think with Oliver and elinor, the danger is they will become Ollie and Ellie, which is really matchy!

rosegoldie Wed 24-Aug-16 17:24:22

Oliver and Gracie!

DramaAlpaca Wed 24-Aug-16 17:26:19

Another vote for Oliver & Grace.

I like Oliver & Elinor, but they'll inevitably get called Ollie & Ellie. Depends if you'd mind that or not.

Gracie is a bit cutesy, and I'm not keen on Brodie.

X-post with Swearwolf, I was typing too slowly!

ilovesprouts Wed 24-Aug-16 17:29:18

Oliver and Elinor love the names

MitzyLeFrouf Wed 24-Aug-16 17:44:59

Brodie and Elinor.
