twin baby advice

By Jennifer Chen,

Back when I found out I was pregnant with twin girls, I read twin parenting books, asked adult twins what life was like for them (did they hate matchy matchy outfits?), went to an Expecting Twins prenatal and spent weeks trying to find the perfect baby names for twins. But nothing really prepared me for the reality of babies times two. While my husband was stoked to someday dress our girls as The Shining twins for Halloween, we were blissfully unaware of how much our lives were going to radically and wonderfully change 180 degrees.

To answer the questions that many people ask me ALWAYS: 1) Twins don’t run in our family; 2) My pregnancy was “all-natural,” as if IVF treatments aren’t also a natural way to conceive a baby; 3) They are fraternal; 4) Yes, it’s hard work, but as first-time parents, my husband and I don’t know anything different.

Best Celebrity Twin Baby Names

best celebrity twin names

By Abby Sandel

One of the most popular questions to discuss at Nameberry is this: what would you name twins?

It’s the kind of challenge Berries love, and for good reasons. Double the number of names to choose! A chance to link two names in some subtle – or maybe not-so-subtle – way. With both of my pregnancies, I had a list of boy names, girl names – and twin names, which didn’t necessarily duplicate the first two lists.

Plenty of celebrity parents have faced this naming challenge. The latest high profile parents seeing double are The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood and his new wife Sally Humphreys. The rock ‘n’ roll royals recently welcomed twin daughters. They kept it simple, opting for classic, feminine names without a lot of frills.

In honor of their arrival, let’s take a look at nine sets of celebrity multiples, and see if we can learn anything from their parents’ baby name choices.

Some particularly delicious babyberry names last month–the doubly golden Aurelia Marigold, a Juniper and a Juno, an Atlas and an Axel, two middle-place Magnolias, first and middle name Shepherds, and a new critter name– Owl.

There were two pair of twins: Adrienne Joelle and Carson Ned; and boys Samuel David and Joel Harner.

We’d like to offer special congrats to one of our favorite guest bloggers, Brooke Cussans, on the birth of Atlas Bram!
