Well you are entitled to your own opinion but these are not your children! From my point of view there were several harsh comments made and calling my choice illiterate is just about the same as calling me illiterate. I have a master's degree and I am certainly not illiterate! You are not a twin so you will NEVER know! I am a twin and I have been a twin all my life, and I will continue to be a twin for the rest of my life so I DO know. I am not asking anyone to sugar coat anything just be respectful. It is not that hard to word things so they do not hurt others feelings.

I do think that some of the opinions stated here were disrespectful and harsh -- please be honest but do not use words like tacky, illiterate and hate. You can say what you mean without sugar-coating but also without wielding a bat.
That said, I think Addison and Anniston are too close for twins or any two siblings. I don't think changing the spellings makes their similarity any "better" and only adds an additional problem. They actually seem much more close to me than Piper and Parker.
I think a lot of us tend to gravitate toward names with a similar sound but I honestly think in this case you've got to make a choice. It's fine to pick a second twin name that starts with A or ends with on or theoretically even both -- Addison/Anniston and Aaron or Ashton or Avalon might work.Pam Satran

But no, I can't be certain of that. I remember the first and only time I ate at their restaurant, I had read a shared mini-bio and history of their business on the back of a menu. Haha, the two were the head chefs of the restaurant. They were from Spain and all it said was that their mother named them. I thought it was sweet.
And hmm, I'm not familiar with that kind of tradition in the Spanish culture. Some of my descendants were Spanish. That experience made me curious about whether that was an old tradition within my family (like far into my family's history).
And that's interesting that it's a tradition in Haiti. I'll have to ask my Haitian friend if that's common
