Help naming twin girls
38

EmmaToast · 01/08/2022 14:55

We recently found out we’re expecting twin girls. Me and DH are finding it hard to choose a name we both like that we can use. We already have a daughter called Freya Mai, and we aren’t ones to go for matchy or rhyming names, we just want to choose names that will sound nice together. We originally loved the name Piper, as we have watched Charmed and decided we would use the name if we had another girl, but DD now goes to school with a girl called Piper and we know the family so we felt we couldn’t use it anymore. We also liked Ava, but DD also goes to school with an Ava, but we don’t really know the family. We aren’t keen on Eva instead, but we do like Evie but I have heard it several times in our local area. Another name we like is Luna, but we have a neighbour who has a Luna. The only name on our list that we haven’t heard is Annora, which is very unusual but I’m not sure if it goes with Freya or any of our other name choices. Which names would you say would be fine to use? I’m completely stuck on what to name our twins, please help.

I wouldn't worry about knowing people who have names you like.

But with Freya I would like the following:
Filipa (nick name Pip) and Amelia
Liberty and Luna

I don’t think you should discount a name because you know of one. Congratulations on the incoming arrivals.

Annora isn’t very nice, it’s a bit odd.

Ava and Evie are just so overused, she’s just be another Evie G or an Evie S, same with Ava. I like Luna but it’s a very popular dog’s name.

I also don't think you should discount names because you know people with the names. Especially Ava - every child will go to school with an Ava, not just your daughter! Piper is maybe a bit different as you know the parents and it's a less common name. But I still wouldn't let that stop me if I loved it. I know a family who called their child Antigone because their older daughter had a school friend called Antigone and it inspired them. I don't think the parents of the original Antigone minded at all and that's with a really unusual name.

I haven't heard the name Annora before but I really like it.

Annora and Piper make a good pair. As do Ava and Luna. Or Ava and Annora.

But, if you want to start again with other names:
Amber, Amaya, Avery, Bronte, Billie, Beatrix, Cassidy, Cleo, Callie, Darcey, Delphi, Danica, Everly, Effie, Etta, Faith, Fallon, Fenella, Giselle, Georgie, Greta, Halle, Honor, Hazel, Ivy, Iris, Ida, Juliet, Jasmine, Jemima, Kiki, Katy, Keira, Lara, Lyra, Lena, Mila, Mabel, Maisie, Nova, Naomi, Nina, Olivia, Ottilie, Orla, Paige, Phoebe, Poppy, Robyn, Ramona, Romilly, Saffron, Sadie, Sylvia, Tamara, Tessa, Thea, Verity, Vashti, Veda, Willow, Willa, Winter, Zia, Zeryn, Zara

I have twins and would recommend trying out names by yelling them across a playground one after the other - you don't want anything long winded or complicated (or made up/spelt unconventionally)

I am addicted to the long-running radio series The Archers. There are new girl twins there at the moment, called Nova and Seren. Any good?

Hope and Mercy

Nothing to do with Freya, I'm just shamelessly sneaking in two names I love 💘😀

After reading this I am very glad my baby twin girls names fit that bill 😅
