Not actually pregnant but hoping to be soon so just playing about with my dream names 🙈 (As you do at 1.20am when you can't sleep because you had coffee at 5pm 😩).

Would Oliver and Joshua work as twin names or for siblings? They would be Ollie and Josh day to day.
They are my 2 favourite boys names along with my sons name, would love to have 2 more boys to use them but could you have both in one family?
I find boys names soooo much harder than girls and these are pretty much the only 2 I like lol (my girls list is pretty long).

I need to sleep - I sound crazy naming non existent baby boys don't I lol

They are nice enough but a bit blah especially as twin names.

They do go well together though. 😀

They're not my style but both are nice names and I think they go well together as twins or siblings.

They do go well together but personally I prefer Oliver & William/Benjamin/Frederick (Freddie)/Edward (Teddy)

Nice names

Lovely classic names.

Freddie and Teddy or Fred and Ted. You wouldn't call twins William and Benjamin either as they would be called Bill and Ben. You just couldn't. I know siblings Joshua and Oliver. I think they go well together.

Lovely combination, both solid classic names.

They go together really well but I bet there are hundreds of siblings with the same combo

My friend has an Oliver and a Joshua. Not twins though. I've always thought they go together well.

They go fab together, lovely names with lovely shortened versions.
My dream twin boys would be Stanley and Edward.
