I have 4 girls, Aria, Eden, Aurelia and Elodie. I am having twins this time, me and DH like Hadley and Hayden for twin girls I was just wondering what peoples opinions are on Hadley and Hayden.

Love Hadley, but not keen on Hayden.
How about Hadley and Harlow ?

Ooh how exciting! What lovely names smile

I think Hadley and Hayden are perfect together! Both equally as unisex as each other. I like the Harlow suggestion but it's more of a girls name to me..

Hadley and Hayden just click so well! Like Aria/Aurelia do.. And Eden/Elodie grin

As a twin, I'll say they are very matched pair. They will automatically paired by everyone, don't help that process along. (They are nice names, just not together)

GimbleInTheWabe Sun 18-Feb-18 11:25:26

Oh wow how exciting! There must be lots of hair bobbles in your house!
I agree with the PP about Harlow, I really love that. And how about Harley?

GimbleInTheWabe Sun 18-Feb-18 11:27:57

Marlowe and Penny? That's not quite so matchy matchy.

You have awesome taste in names!! I like Hadley but not keen on Hayden. Do they both have to have names beginning with H? It might be nice if they are more included with your other daughters by having a name completely of their own

My experience is that most twins who have matchy names end up resenting it. They are likely to get "interchanged" by people quite a lot anyway (even if they are fraternal) and this can start to get quite annoying for the kids--I really don't recommend that you make this worse by giving them matchy or similar-sounding names.

How about thinking about what names you would like for two regular (non-twin) siblings, and starting from there?

helpmum2003 Sun 18-Feb-18 11:29:34

Congratulations! My comment would be that your other girls have (lovely) girls rather than unisex names. (I admit to not liking unisex names...) Personally I would go for girls names.

Helen and Hermione? Hadley and Haydon sound like boys / place names to me - don’t like them at all.

EleanorXx Sun 18-Feb-18 12:35:06

I like Hadley! Hadley and Hayden seems a bit matchy, how about Hadley and Harper

FizzyGreenWater Sun 18-Feb-18 13:36:35

Really don't like.

They don't go well with your other names - all of which are softer and nicer. Hadley and Hayden - both hard, masculine, feel like place or brand names, really impersonal.

Also - matching initials for twins I really dislike - really dilutes any individuality which is a no-no - twee and blurs them together even more. And reminds me of how people name pets! Like they are a pair of hamsters or something. I get that your other daughters' names fall into pairs though, so perhaps that's why?

If they must match, make them more attractive names, and maybe markedly different lengths?

Go for vowel initials again? Orianna and Ophelia? Oriel and Orla? Isabella and India?

I would never have thought of those two names but I think they are absolutely lovely! Definitely go for it

Your other children's names are beautiful too smile

daisypond Sun 18-Feb-18 15:04:00

They are a very different style to your other DC's name. I don't like either of them. They're matchy-matchy, and surname-type names which at best I'd say would do for a boy, not a girl. People will get them muddled up. Harlow is a new town in Essex and there's a few places called Hadley as well. Agree with those who say matching initials for twins is really not a good idea. If you want unity with your other DC, you could have an A name for one and an E name for the other.

Bringmewineandcake Sun 18-Feb-18 15:05:12

I really don’t like Hadley, not keen on Hayden either for a girl.
Why so different to your other choices which do seem to compliment each other?

daisypond Sun 18-Feb-18 15:09:28

Oops, don't know where I got Harlow from! But Hayden is a boy's name.

bridgetreilly Sun 18-Feb-18 15:12:25

They both sound like boy's names to me.

What about sticking with Es and As?

Ava
Evelyn
Aveline
Eleanor
Alyssa
Elena

FizzyGreenWater Sun 18-Feb-18 15:35:43

Oh yes - one A, one E name - then they will complement towards the other childrens' names, rather than making the twins a matchy pair.

That's a really nice idea. You end up with three of each.

Anais and Elana

Lobsterquadrille2 Sun 18-Feb-18 17:06:39

Could you move onto the next vowel and have Isolde and Ianthe, two of my favourites?

lalaloopyhead Sun 18-Feb-18 17:15:55

I agree with PPs that Hadley and Hayden are too matchy and don't sound like names - makes me think of Hayes & Harlington train station.

AnElderlyLadyOfMediumHeight Sun 18-Feb-18 17:18:10

Hadley and Hayden jar with your other girls' names and people will assume they're boys.

Isla and Ottilie
