Just found out I’m having identical twins! We have boy names ready and decided upon we love Sienna for a little girl but need a name for the other baby if they are girls.

We like Savannah but aren’t sure if it’s too similar. We also like Sophia but I’m not sure if either are quite right for us.

Our surname is Brown so quite boring!

Thank you all x

Sienna Brown? You know Sienna is a shade of brown, right?

I do think Savannah is a bit too similar. If they're identicals, they may want some individuality. How about:

Well I love the name Isobel so maybe Isobel and Sienna.

I am so glad I posted on here i didn’t know Sienna was a shade of brown I’ve been put off a name I’ve always loved now hahaa!

Maybe I need a name to go with Isobel or Eliza or Sophia. 3 names I also love xxx

My boys names are Ezekiel and Elijah and we’re really set on them. X

I have a Savannah so obviously love it but do think it's too similar to Sienna. Though I only really think that because of the S sound I think and, judging by your boy choices, you're quite keen (or at least unbothered) on alliteration so maybe Sienna and Savannah would work. If you're put off by the shade of brown you could use Savannah instead of Sienna?

Or, if you stick to Sienna and do want alliteration - Sienna and:
Saffron, Sorrell, Saskia, Cecily, Skye, Scarlett, Summer, Cecilia, Celeste, Sutton, Sylvia, Susannah, Samantha, Sapphire

Or, if you don't really want the 'matchy' thing - Sienna and:
Avery, Aubrey, Alyssa, Alexis, Abigail, Bryony, Bethan, Chloe, Cassidy, Callie, Charlotte, Devon, Darcey, Eden, Erin, Effie, Fallon, Georgie, Grace, Halle, Harper, Hope, India, Jade, Jasmine, Jessica, Jordan, Katie, Kristen, Katrina, Lacey, Lexi, Madison, Macey, Mika, Nicole, Nia, Natalia, Paige, Piper, Poppy, Quinn, Riley, Ruby, Romilly, Taryn, Tansy, Tia, Vivianne, Willow, Zia

I'd suggest avoiding clashing names but other than that just choosing the two names that you like the most. Choosing names that match or go together is not important.
If possible I'd also avoid choosing names with the same initials.

Sienna Miller's sister is called Savannah, so they're a bit of a celebrity pair if that sways your option either way. I think they sound really nice together but would probably go for slightly different names for id twins.

Sandra and Sofia would be nice. Congratulations on your twins! smile

I like Savannah and Sienna together. They're similar but I think there is distinction there too. I also love the Isobel - pretty and classic.

How about:

Sienna and Sophia is cute!

PandorasXbox Mon 06-Nov-17 12:32:20

I wouldn’t have another S name personally.


ILookedintheWater Mon 06-Nov-17 12:40:10

Ezekiel and didn't say that you wanted Hebrew/old testament names:

Ruth and Rachel
Miriam and Martha
Esther and Eve
Naomi and Norah

What about Sierra if you don't want Sienna now?
Other names in the same style ie. Southern States colonial.

Cheyenne (Shy enn)

As a painter, Sienna Brown is very much a colour. If that bothers you then Sierra might be a good alternative.
Or Cassia is similar (means cinnamon which is also brown I guess!)

starkid Mon 06-Nov-17 15:01:29

Out of the names you've mentioned I like Savannah, Eliza and Isobel. Sienna isn't great with the surname Brown sadly, which is a shame!

MerryMarigold Mon 06-Nov-17 15:04:43

I knew ID twins called Jessica and Jennifer. One was in my daughter's class for 2 years and whilst I could tell them apart I could never remember which name went with which child as just too similar. Don't do that to them.

Thanks everyone for all your amazing advice some lovely suggestions and valid points about them sounding too similar and I think I’m going to have to forget Sienna because of the colour link now.

So glad I posted smile

Current fave is Eliza and Isobel I think.

LovelyBranches Mon 06-Nov-17 19:59:51

Glad you’ve changed your mind about Sienna, the first thing I thought of was the colour and I’m certainly not a painter.

Isobel and Eliza are beautiful names that go really well with your surname.

Growuphelen Mon 06-Nov-17 20:03:06

Eliza and Isobel are gorgeous together

EleanorXx Mon 06-Nov-17 20:18:49

Eliza and Isobel are gorgeous!

daisypond Mon 06-Nov-17 20:33:26

Eliza and Isobel are very nice. But I think they're both actually forms of the same name - Elizabeth - although they do seem very different names to us nowadays, just in case it could bother you.
