The joy of pregnancy hormones

[caveat a dear dear friend when pg with twins was seriously considering Liam and Noel]

(That was NOT a recommendation BTW)

You mean names that are alreaddy famous duos?

If so, sorry - think it is a bit tacky!
Failing that I think any names you have for siblings eventually go together and sound right.

a school friend wanted to have 3 girls called Faith Hope and Charity! We were so pleased she had 3 boys.


grannyslippers · 25/02/2008 21:19

We have same initial (the ubiquitous J) that's rather nice. But for a third it would be overkill


beachlover · 25/02/2008 21:19

WestCountryLass · 25/02/2008 21:21

We are all Js here too, but the third got an L


Thomcat · 25/02/2008 21:22

I think sibling names should complement each other, but not go together in a Jack and Jill, Maisy and Daisy way. more like a Charlotte and Jessica and a Daniela and Benjamin type way. I think it's might feel odd if you call one child Emma Louise and the other Ziggy Moondust.


barbamama · 25/02/2008 21:23

I know a Charlie and Lola


choccypig · 25/02/2008 21:23

I don't think you should name them in clumps. Whether they are singles or multiples.
But I do think you should consider the other names. I feel it's unfair for one DC to be Clementine Marmalade, and the other one plain Jane.
Would advise against matching initials, else When they are older they'll be opening each others private letters.


msappropriate · 25/02/2008 21:23

My friend had 4 kids with 4 vowels, (accidently) We wanted her to go for number 5 but there aren't that many names beginning with U, especially for a boy (Uriah?)
