    Twin Name Data 2011

    I was poking around the US social security site and came across this data on twins born in the US in 2011 and had to share. (I have bolded a few combos that I felt were quite over the top matchy. But then again, I'm not into obvious twin name matching at all.) Enjoy!

    A couple of things are striking: (1) how much people forget that twins are TWO individuals and (2) the total lack of imagination on the part of the parents regarding the combos (the same names appear multiple times. Some are quite silly like Oliver/Olivia, Michael/Michelle and Adrian/Adriana (wow, their parents must have been up all night trying to figure out those sets! ). I guess we now know some of the reason why Sophia, Isabella, Olivia and company are on top. I think the sets below aren't too bad.

    What a mess! Other than a few pairs of nice, if very very popular, names (I genuinely do like how Olivia and Sophia sound together), this is just sad.

    Christian and Christopher?? Do they flip a coin to decide who goes by Chris at school?
    Can you even imagine yelling for Mia and Mya all the time?

    I couldn't imagine giving twins (or even siblings) names that matchy! I mean, picture going to school with identical twins Mia and Mya and trying to keep them straight! It's hard enough to tell some twins apart, don't make it more difficult.

    And the fact that Nevaeh and Heaven is so high up there makes me sad for humanity.. lol.
