Zoe & Eve/Eva - Long time top choice for twin girls, because they both mean "life". I'm currently in love with the combinations Zoe Theophania and Eve Christiana!
Anastasia & Cecilia - Well, they're both family names for me (my great-grandmothers), but they both also end with -ia. A little match-y, but acceptable, I think, since the endings sound different.
Catherine & Elizabeth - These are our top two girls' names anyway, but I think they'd make wonderful twin names as well, since they're so classic.
Veronica & Victoria - They're definitely match-y, but distinctive enough that it isn't obnoxious.
Veronica & Miranda - The "ron" and "ran" sounds are similar.
Genevieve and Vivienne - The double "v's" tie them together nicely.
Daphne & Penelope - They're both Greek mythological names that end with "e", but the different amount of syllables in each name keep them from crossing the line into too match-y.
Felicity & Verity - Okay, this is definitely a guilty pleasure pairing that I would NEVER actually use, but I can't help but like it anyway!
Nicholas & William - No real connection, but they're my personal favorite boys' names.
Nicholas & Dominic - Both contain "nic". You'd have to be careful with nicknames, though!
Benjamin & Dominic - Both contain "min", but nicknames wouldn't be a problem with this pairing.
Gabriel & Raphael - Both are archangel names that end with - el. Maybe a tad too match-y, though.
Casper & Balthazar - Traditional names for two of the Three Wise Men.
Alexander & Balthazar - Share a "z" sound.
Catherine & Alexander - Top names for us, and it's kind of cool that they both have historical "Greats".
Catherine & Benjamin - No real connection I can think of, but they just go together, IMO. Love the idea of Ben and Cate!
Catherine & Nathaniel - If you can resist the temptation to call them Cate and Nate, these would be great together. But that would be very hard to do, I think...
Victoria & Nicholas - Again, you'd have to stay away from Vicky and Nicky...but I don't like Vicky anyway. They'd be Tori and Nico.
Veronica & Nicholas - See above for Nicholas & Dominic.
Valentina & Balthazar - Similar first syllables.
Vesper & Casper - Obvious GP pick that I would never use in RL, for a lot of reasons...
Heh, I confess I do like it when twin names match a little. Just as long as it's not too much, like my twin aunts Dianna and Deanna. Ugh!Proud mother to William "Liam" Balthazar and Catherine "Cate" Ophelia (Expecting #3 in late Feb. 2016!)
Future Daughters: Isobel "Zoe" Theophania, Veronica "Vera" Seraphine

My favourite for G/G twins is Zoe and Eva as they both mean life and for B/B twins is Felix and Asher as they both mean happy/lucky. I love that they share a meaning, but it isn't obvious and that the names would go together well even without the shared meaning. I love all of these names singly which just makes it even better. I haven't figured out a G/B combo yet.
I'm not sure what I'd pair with Felix and Asher as middle names but for Eva and Zoe I have:
Zoe Ophelia and
so they both have a beautiful, longer Shakespearean middle name.My furry darlings ~ Bodie the border terrier & Portia and Penny the guinea pigs
