We wrote this week in our new column in the online edition of UsMagazine about Max and Emme, the names of JLo and Marc Anthony‘s twins.

Max and Emme, who turned two on Monday, may not have the most original names on the block, but they’re compatible and make a fine twin set.

On the other hand, you wouldn’t want to give your twins names that seemed as if they came from different planets.  A pair like Kaylee and Eleanor sound like a cheerleader and a valedictorian, while Theodore and Logan might have been born centuries rather than mere minutes apart.

What’s the best set of twin names you’ve ever heard — or that you can dream of — and what’s so great about it?
