For twins?

Absolutely love them both! Alexander is top of my list for DC3.

Love Victoria but I'm a rare bod who hates Alexander.

So so cute together!!

Lovely names and go really well together.

SorenaJ Thu 13-Oct-16 17:51:33

Gorgeous names!

Normally I would have said lovely.

But after having just watched 'Victoria' I'm now aware that Queen Vics first name was actually Alexandrina.

Are you a big fan of Queen Vic? Would you mind if people assume you were?

Lovely together.

Very nice, I prefer Tori, to Vicky.

Like them both and both have a couple of nn options just make sure you like the nn options together as well.
While their small you can chose the nn but be prepared for them or friends to choose later.

I also prefer Tori to Vicky. I don't like Vicky...

Great! Thank you.

As for NNs... I plan on using Alexander and Victoria grin but my favourite NNs are Alex and Tori (love the meaning of Tori) and I think they go well together - both 4 letters and 2 syllables. I don't mind any of the NNs though, so I wouldn't be fussed if they wanted to use something else.

I don't like either...

I don't like Alexander, but for some reason love Alexandra (or, even better, Aleksandra) for a girl. I don't like Alex though, and that's the inevitable nickname.

I hate Victoria because it reminds me of the queen, who looked and sounded as though she was a right miserable sod. Also, because it gets shortened to Vicky (ugh) or Tori (ugh).

But I'm sure I'm in the minority about these names!

I know an Alexander and a Victoria who are known as just that, nicknames aren't inevitable.

Both lovely.

Alexander and Victoria are gorgeous names.

Lovely names that go very nicely together. I know siblings with those names. Congrats!

HeteronormativeHaybales Fri 14-Oct-16 06:47:47

Both lovely, and lovely together.

MoonlightMedicine Fri 14-Oct-16 06:49:35

Love but I'm extremely biased!!

ShanghaiDiva Fri 14-Oct-16 07:54:16

Lovely names.

Vixxfacee Fri 14-Oct-16 13:13:00

Victoria is an ugly name.

roseteapot101 Fri 14-Oct-16 13:29:19

i think their good choices

CancellyMcChequeface Fri 14-Oct-16 13:40:11

I love both names!

Tori is also a much nicer nickname than Vicky, which I don't like at all.

They're fine and go well together. I don't love Victoria. There's just been too many of them in the last 40 years and both Vicky and Tori are kind of 'of an era' to me. Alex is nice enough, knows loads of em, prefer Xander these days for a little boy.
