This is a bit of a tall order as not planning on finding out the sexes....but I'm totally stuck for twin names to go with my DS name Henry. I feel they should be traditional like his. If anyone has any bright ideas (of 3 possible combinations!) I'd love some input. My OH is one of those ones who says 'we'll know when they arrive' & won't discuss it, but I feel with 2 we should at least have some ideas...

I know twins Joe and Leo, with siblings with classic names.

I have 2dc both named on this thread.

You need to work out 3 possible scenarios obviously, boy/boy girl/girl and boy/girl, that is really quite difficult actually so i definitely would be starting now.
What are your favourite names so far op?
And massive congratulationssmile

I love the name Oscar but seeing as we're done with babies it's now dd's favourite teddy's name!

With all of the twins I've known, the names tend to be similar in length and the one set of twins I know who have a really short name and a really long name don't seem to flow as much.

Mimi333 Sun 01-Jan-17 08:13:03

Thank you for the congrats! & thanks everyone for the input, loads of lovely ideas!

I love Henry, George & Sophie but we each have an ex called George & Sophie! It doesn't put me off though tbh.
I like Tristan & Oscar but OH won't. I love Leo & Theo (not together!) but OH doesn't.

Rose (sisters name) & Elizabeth (OH family name) will definitely be the middle names.
& James & Alexander middle names if boys (my brothers names).

Interesting that Aurora & Arabella have been mentioned, have always loved them but wondered if they were a bit out there.

Arthur & Albert would be so cute smile

Going to read these all out to my OH now, see if any catch his fancy (he says no to everything I suggest...)

Thank you smilesmilesmile

If you like Aurora and Arabella, what about Ariella? I know a few.

IMO, not Henry and Harriet as Harriet comes from Henrietta.

Henry, George and Oscar
Henry, Ariella and Carina
Henry, Oscar and Ariella

Mimi333 Mon 02-Jan-17 17:02:28

Love all of those! Only worry with those A names is that they'll have a lifetime struggle of spelling it but I suppose there can't be too many interpretations of Ariella. That's really beautiful. Think OH would go George but I like oscar & George. Really like Ariella though
