If you were having boy/girl twins and the boy's name was going to be either Jacob or Oscar.... What would the baby girl be called:

Suggestions:
Dh likes Bille, Stevie, Charlie and tiger lily confused

I like Ottilie, Elodie, Eloise, Harriet and Willow

So very different tastes.
What would you choose?
Thanks!

Felicity.
Annabel.
Harriet.
Jemima.
Susanna.

Although I do think it's cute when twins have the same initial. So Jacob and Jemima. Oscar and Olivia.

Not Oscar and Lucinda, obvs.

Jacob and Eloise. I like Willow too but don't think it goes with Jacob.
I don't like any of your DH's ideas although Charlotte nn Charlie would work with Jacob or Oscar.
Congratulations smile

Ottilie or Eloise both go well with either Jacob or Oscar

With Billie, Stevie or Charlie you run the risk of having to repeatedly explain that you don't have twin boys

Theodore and Penelope
Lewis and Isabella
Noah and Delilah

If I had to pick out of those I'd say lily.
Congrats though (I do an automatic aww when I see or hear about twins)

Thank you, the boy is definitely Jacob or Oscar though smile

I actually do like Lily and we started off agreeing on Lily until we realised how over used it was, I went off it and dh changed his mind to Tigerlily.... Hmmm

We have also semi agreed on Elizabeth, probably shortened to Libby, does that go?

Libby would be fine. And Elizabeth is a good name giving her lots of choice when she's older. Go for it.

I would steer clear of matchy matchy name with twins as I think they are a bit naff (mother of twins myself) and I do cringe when I hear matching names. Personal opinion though.

Also think you need to be wary of boy-sounding names (Stevie, billy, charlie) or names that will be shortened to boy sounding names (Harry for Harriet and Will for Willow) to avoid confusion.

Jacob and Oscar are lovely - I think Ottie and Ellie as shortened names are lovely with either name but as a twin and a twin mummy, I wouldn't do names with the same initial - that's a twee for me.

Oscar and Harriet Lily
Jacob and Willow Eloise

Congratulations
My twins would be called Sadie and Jamie

Helloandgoodnight Sat 22-Apr-17 09:05:04

Oscar and Elizabeth would be lovely. I agree that they shouldnt be too matchy. I know a few families where everyone has such similar names, I forget who's who.

MamaSloth Sat 22-Apr-17 09:09:25

I know a Jacob and his girl twin is Jessica.

MumofthreeandBean Sat 22-Apr-17 09:16:14

I am having b/g twins too
Name choice is so hard!!!!

I think Libby is lovely with Jacob

Badweekjustgotworse Sat 22-Apr-17 09:19:31

Don't do Charlie and Oscar together, my immediate reaction was to think 'Charlie Oscar foxtrot'grin

DarkLikeVader Sat 22-Apr-17 09:21:51

Orla and Arlo! This has been my b/g twin fantasy combination for ages 😁

SuperSix77 Sat 22-Apr-17 10:04:30

Oscar & Elodie are lovely together.
Jacob & Willow equally lovely!
Great names.

twoforthepriceofone22 Sat 22-Apr-17 10:57:29

They look lovely super six I agree!

I also like Callie from pp long list
Jacob and Callie?
I think Oscar and Callie has too many c sounds.

Mrsknackered Sat 22-Apr-17 12:34:51

I don't love Callie (I always think callous) but Oscar and Libby sound lovely.

MikeUniformMike Sat 22-Apr-17 14:48:05

Jacob and Libby sounds good.

Buntysoven Sat 22-Apr-17 22:37:44

Love Libby and Jacob. They match without sounding twee.
