Twins- Aoife and _________

We don't know what we're having!

DH is Irish and would really like an Irish name. Aoife is my standout favourite, but then some of my other likes (Charlotte, Helen, Rose) don't match.

I like old fashioned Irish uncle names (James, Joseph, Vincent), but not sure if they match Aoife... Other boys' contenders are Aidan, Conn and Eoghan.

I love Maeve with Aoife (or Meadhbh)
For boys, our top name is Flynn, that goes well with Aoife
Or I do think the names you like - Joseph, James - are absolutely fine with aoife as well

Love Aoife and Maeve - they are both brilliant names and sound great together (and nice links to Irish mythology)

for boys, Patrick, Cormac, Cillian, Malachy, Angus, Fergus? Or maybe a name from Irish mythology too?

Aoife and Naoise - not used for males and females so you only need one name.
