We have a Harriet & a Nathaniel. I don't know yet what we're having so we're looking for 2 names we like for boys and girls. We like that Harriet & Nathaniel are both rare names (we're in Ireland) so we don't want anything too common. Any thoughts?
I know lots of twins through my twin group - avoid anything too matchy, it gets confusing! We went with the same initial for our boys and both quite classic names which I'm glad about now - in my group of twin mum friends, all the "unusual" names are duplicated at least two or three times!
As a mother of twins I agree - avoid matching names - it's really naff! Also if they are identical try and avoid dressing them the same. See TAMBA research for why it's a bad idea. TAMBA is well worth joining by the way. Loads of discounts. Especially useful for shoes.
