Identical twin name help

(54 Posts)

Hi there

Looking for help naming identical twins with a brother called Tobias (Toby mainly). We don't know the gender yet but think we're sorted on boys names so your assistance with girls would be very much appreciated!

Short list so far

Talia or Thalia
Serena - dh not keen

Of those, the ones I like are:

Rosa, Eliza, Talia, Cassia, Saskia and Alice.

With Toby, I probably wouldn't go for a T name for 1 twin though (personally)


Toby, Alice and Eliza
Toby, Saskia and Eliza

Ah, good point about t names - stupidly hadn't considered that!

SuperBeagle Mon 21-Aug-17 23:41:12

I love Ramona. Like Alice and Cassia (love Cassie).

I want to like Saskia, but the pronunciation confusion puts me off. Sahs-kee-ah, or Sass-kee-ah?!

Toby Rosa and Eliza

Sass-kee-a is the only way I've heard Saskia pronounced. I think Alice & Eliza go well together for twin names. Saskia and Eliza doesn't glow very well, and they're going to be known as a pair for at least the next 18years

Verity and Ramona smile

Thalia and saskia work well

DuggeeHugs Tue 22-Aug-17 01:31:48

Tobias, Verity and Ramona

Marcipex Tue 22-Aug-17 01:52:49

Rosa and Alice. I used to love Verity until someone on here said Ferrety.

Congratulations! Twins are awesome.

With twins you don't want anything that runs together as you'll be saying them at the same time mostly.

You don't want alliteration it rhymes either.

Out of your list I'd go for Ramona and Verity personally.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Tue 22-Aug-17 02:12:58

I like Cassia & Verity best. Also like Rosa & Sakia or Alice & Thalia/Talia.

Isadora2007 Tue 22-Aug-17 02:20:01

Rosa and Alice are my favourites and nice together as they're not same-y.
Toby, Rosa and Alice sounds nice as well.

Chaffinch4 Tue 22-Aug-17 07:22:01

Rosa and Alice or Eliza and Alice would he my choices. Beautiful names and go nicely together without being to matchy.

SfaOkaySuperFurryAnimals Tue 22-Aug-17 07:40:27

Verity and Alice would be nice, I have Isobel and lucille😁

fullofwonder Tue 22-Aug-17 07:44:50

Oh wow - thanks so much for all your responses! Not sure I'm closer to having any favourites!

Are Eliza and Rosa together too matchy? Not sure anyone has suggested that combo!

Romana I do really love but not sure I'm brave enough to use!

Saskia was added on fairly recently and I'm not so sure now - have been saying it out loud and it can sound a bit harsh.

Verity also really love but the ferretty comment has made me think - still love it!

This is all before coming on to middle names!!!

Eliza and Alice go nicely together and with Toby.

I love Verity but I am not sure how well it goes with your other names. I think it would be nice with another 3 sylabble name (which would also match tobias) but it doesn't work well with Ramona or Saskia. Maybe Verity and Cassia.

Jooni Tue 22-Aug-17 08:38:19

I love Saskia, Eliza and Ramona, though all your options are nice. I'd go with Saskia and Eliza or Saskia and Ramona.

Eliza and Rosa are fine together but the endings are perhaps a bit matchy. If you like Eliza and you like Alice, might you like Elise? Rosa and Elise sounds lovely.

CurrentlyNothing Tue 22-Aug-17 08:44:51

Thinking more about what goes nicely with Verity:

Verity and Olivia
Verity and Elizabeth (nn Eliza?)
Verity and Imogen
Verity and Phoebe
Verity and Isolde
Verity and Eloise
Verity and Felicity
Verity and Isadora
Verity and Cecily (nn Cece)

Choccyhobnob Tue 22-Aug-17 08:48:15

I prefer Romilly to Ramona (not helpful I know!)

fullofwonder Tue 22-Aug-17 08:54:57

Have just been saying Saskia out loud in the shower and it seemed ok! Back on the list.

Ooh had forgotten about Romilly - do really like it. Onto the list!

Currently - have actually considered a lot of your suggestions at one time and have ruled out for different reasons. Love Isadora but she would inevitably be Issy and there are quite a few of those round here

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 22-Aug-17 09:11:21

From your list I like, Cassia and Rosa.

CurrentlyNothing Tue 22-Aug-17 09:18:36

Isadora could be Dora rather than Issy. My DD2 hs a friend called Isadora nn Dotty!

SirSidneyRuffDiamond Tue 22-Aug-17 09:31:45

Saskia and Romilly sound very well together to my ear and also seem a similar type of name as Tobias.

I dislike Cassia and Talia, but otherwise all lovely.

What about the following to go with Rosa:
