Nicknames for Twins

Hi, I was reading a thread here about nicknames of 'Amelie,' but the thread is closed. I joined so I could respond! Anyway, I have 2 nickname issues - Amelie and Isabelle, my grand twins. These tween twins have various nicknames - Amelie is Ammie, Ami, Am, Pajamalie, Omlette, etc. depending on my mood or who's speaking. Her sister, Isabelle, has more - Izzie, Izzy, Is, Busy, Belle, Bella, Bel-Bel...I usually call her Izzie or just Is. They seem to prefer their full names, so I often do that.

What is the “nickname issue”? They don’t like the nicknames you use?

So what’s the issue then…?

I know 3 sets of twins called Amelie/a and Isabelle/a 🙂🙂

They are beautiful names with a lovely range of nicknames! Do you have a question or are you just sharing because the other thread was closed?

Don't nicknames evolve organically as opposed to specifically choosing one and forcing it? In my family growing uo, my ddad waa fantastic at giving everyone pet names but they weren't deliberated over or chosen. It was natural. Our ds uses a shortened version of his name/nn most of the time now which we used/use (alongside his full name) from birth.

Scrap the names. Call them Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Links to the popular children’s story “Alice in Wonderland”
