A friend has asked me to post this. She is having twins!! She's having a bit of panic and wants to know whether other people, namely ones who don't give a stuff about offending her think about her choices.

Alison Matilda and George Leo
Paul Judah and Eli Nathan
Sophie Matilda and Rose Charlene

There you go, have at them and I'll be printing the thread off to show her!
Thanks very much! smile

I like Alice - rather than Alison
Sophie Rose and George will be dated - Paul old fashioned

I like Eli!!!

NoCapes Tue 14-Feb-17 20:27:13

Definitely not Paul or Alison - It's not the 80s

NoCapes Tue 14-Feb-17 20:28:52

I also don't understand the combinations
Surely you choose two girls names and two boys names and if its one of each sex you pick your favourite
How has she got completely different names including middle names for each eventuality?? confused

MadameJosephine Tue 14-Feb-17 20:30:40

I actually quite like Paul and Alison blush

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 14-Feb-17 20:35:19

Sophie Matilda and Paul Judah.
I especially dislike Alison. Very harsh.
Pass on my congratulations

CaoNiMa Tue 14-Feb-17 20:50:48

I actually love Paul and Alison!

CaoNiMa Tue 14-Feb-17 20:51:10

Cross post!!grin

I like ;
Matilda Rose and Sophie Alice
Nathan George and Leo James

BaymaxismyHero Tue 14-Feb-17 21:05:03

Sophie and Rose are lovely.
George is OK, Alice is lots better than Alison.
Paul is very dated. Eli seems to short, Elijah is nice and use Eli.

NoCapes I have two lots of twins and had tons of name combos for every eventuality each time.

I think all of the options above are fine. Sophie and Rose are the safest options and I would be tempted to ditch Sophie in favour of Alison.

SallyInSweden Tue 14-Feb-17 21:06:54

Like Paul and love Alison

My twins had various names on big pieces of A4 paper tacked to the living room wall for weeks before and after they were born: we went to the register office wth three names and decided on the way!

You need to say both names shortened in the same breath with twins. What are the single syllable short versions of those names?

Mumoftheark Wed 15-Feb-17 00:58:06

I think she needs to pick her 2 favourite names for each gender and when they are born choose. I'm confused as to why there are all the options.

I love Sophie and Rose for twin girls, both beautiful names and go well together. Think Charlene is horrible with rose tbh unless it has a meaning, it just doesn't work sorry.

Boy girl combo I like Sophie and George

Boy boy George and Eli

Does she have a favourite boys and girls name?

mum2be2boys Wed 15-Feb-17 09:59:40

Out of the choices given, I like Sophie Matilda and George Leo. Not keen on the others I'm afraid.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Wed 15-Feb-17 10:37:37

George Leo and Sophie Matilda

Re:1970's, think Alison and Paul might be due for revival like Amanda and Jonathan.

anonbecauseiwanna Wed 15-Feb-17 10:43:18

I hate all of them except Sophie and Rose blush

*Alison Matilda and George Leo
Paul Judah and Eli Nathan
Sophie Matilda and Rose Charlene*

None of them roll of the tongue to be honest. As I was reading them, they didn't sound like they went together all that well.

I like a PP's suggestion of:

*Matilda Rose and Sophie Alice
Nathan George and Leo James*

BeingATwatItsABingThing Wed 15-Feb-17 10:44:31

Wow. Bold fail there.

Montsti Wed 15-Feb-17 16:14:44

Sorry but Paul & Alison aren't great - very 70s/80s...they'll probably be back in in a few years though so maybe she's ahead of her time!

George is my favourite of the boys and Alice or Alexandra as an alternative to Alison. Sophie and Rose are ok..

Not keen on Eli - maybe Elijah?

MrsMeeseeks Wed 15-Feb-17 18:46:51

Charlene, Rose, George and Sophie are all lovely. I'm not sure why, but Leo just doesn't seem to work as a middle name.

Paul and Alison are a bit too Seventies for my liking and Matilda is just awful, sorry.

Sophronia Wed 15-Feb-17 18:49:32

I actually like Paul and Alison, they'd be more unusual in their age group than Sophie, George etc.

pilates Wed 15-Feb-17 19:04:15

Paul and Alison are very 70's.

The rest are very nice, except Charlene which is dreadful.

I would choose Sophie Matilda and George Leo.

QueenMortificado Wed 15-Feb-17 19:06:25

Lots of twins around atm!

Is this for Amal or Beyoncé?

paddypants13 Wed 15-Feb-17 19:32:32

I like all the names apart from Judah. I don't think it goes well with Paul either.

Congratulations to your friend!
