Name Your Girl-Boy Twins!

twin names

The Top Ten names for girl and boy twins all have matching first initials. They are:

  1. Madison and Mason
  2. Emma and Ethan
  3. Taylor and Tyler
  4. Madison and Michael
  5. Jayda and Jayden
  6. Madison and Matthew
  7. Sophia and Samuel
  8. Addison and Aiden
  9. Olivia and Owen
  10. Zoe and Zachary

While we don’t advocate matches as close as Taylor and Tyler or Jayda and Jayden, choosing compatible but distinct names that start with the same first letter, such as Sophia and Samuel or Zoe and Zachary, can be one good way to draw girl-boy twins closer together.

So our challenge to you today is to name your own girl and boy twins with the same first initial.

As always, we love hearing the reasons behind your pick.  And if you want to name more than one set of twins, by all means, name away!

birth announcement

By Linda Rosenkrantz

It’s time for the always gratifying task of gathering up the birth announcements of the month, and September’s harvest did not disappoint, with an abundance of great choices, creative first and middle combos and interesting sibsets.

Outstanding among the girls, there is the floral first name Zinnia and both Darling and Lova (based on a typo for Love) as middles. The boys’ list includes the imposing Ignatius and the hero-name Beckham, as well as distinctive middle names Wellington and Adair. And one girl inherited her dad’s name, while a boy got his father’s name in reverse.

twingirls2

By Hannah Young

I am name obsessed. When I am reading at bedtime to my eight-year old son, I will pause as we encounter new characters, “Hmm … Polly, that’s a good name isn’t it?” before he puts his fingers in his ears and begs for mercy, “Stop the naming madness, Mummy!”

I scan the credits of every TV show, hoping for divine inspiration.

My own mother taunts me; “You have been making lists of names since you could write and you can’t even chose a name for your own daughter. But I don’t like Ruby, dogs are called Ruby, the stupidest person I know has a granddaughter called Ruby, I don’t want a granddaughter called Ruby.”

I am due with non-identical twin girls in about four weeks time. My partner and I agreed we’d name a baby each. He has chosen his name – Leonora Mary.
