    From your list I like Cora and Tessa. Cora Rose and Tessa Eve are cute.

    I agree with the pp that it might be a good idea to try to use two names that don't end in the "ee" sound.

    Other suggestions
    Emmeline
    Adelaide
    Violet
    Amelia
    Beatrix
    Claire
    Celia
    Caroline
    Eden
    Edith
    Flora
    Georgia
    Isla
    Iris
    Lilla
    Olive
    Mila
    Faye
    Thea
    Vera
    Belle
    Girls: Anya, Leia, Maeve, Adelaide, Lelia, Belle, Daphne, Vada, Evangeline, Anneliese, Leda, Livia, Carys, Liana, Cleo, Piper, Elena, Mercedes
    Boys: Flynn, Isaac, Ronan, James, Alaric, Jude, Damian, Emmett, Gabriel, Henry, Lucas/Lucian, Arthur, Ian, Wyatt, Leo

    Pearl was a nice thought. So would be longer vintage names, like Helena or Viola. I think some phonetic variety makes the sibset sound much more interesting-- Ruby, Lucy, Pearl and Violet sound much more cohesive than over-matchy Ruby, Lucy, Annie, Maggie.
    I tend to agree, but my husband really wants the names to all "go together" and he feels like the "ee" ending is important. If it is two girls, I will probably be more willing to push us to move in another direction. If it's one girl/one boy, I will probably choose another "ee" name so that all the girls have that connection. Pearl won't work because it's Lucy's middle name, but Violet is on our list.

    Since Pearl is already Lucy's mn, haven't you already honored Great Grandma Margaret and wouldn't Mae, Daisy, and Maggie be a bit redundant? Out of the 3 I think Daisy is the most (only) usable option for you. I really do agree with you that if there is only one girl the best thing to do would be to give her a "y" ending name... But on the other hand I agree with the others that if it will be 2 girls you might not want to give either one an "ee" ending sound. Of course it does depend on your husband so here are a few to consider. =]

    Amy Rose & Daisy Kate (flower names and long "a" sounds)
    Annie & Sadie (same ending sounds as R & L but I like the paired "ie" instead of "y's")
    Cora & Tessa (matching "a" endings and quirky vintage vibes)
    Molly & Poppy (I love the mirrored double letters in the middle and that they are both 5 letters long)
    Dominic James~ (5)

    Felicity : Gabriel : Jude : Killian : Merida : Ramsay

    Well, *I* agree about Pearl, but the husband doesn't even think Mae or Daisy are going far enough. He thinks Maggie is the only way besides Margaret to honor GGma. Also, we weren't thinking of that when we named her, we just like Pearl, so he doesn't see a clear connection. Thank you for the suggestions, I really like those four pairs.

    Evie
    Maggie
    Molly
    Poppy
    Sadie
    Tessa

    Middles: Mae, Rose, Kate, Snow, Eve, Love

    But now, I'm feeling overwhelmed in every way and have barely thought about names in the weeks since we found out. Do any of the above strike you as great twin names or is it back to the drawing board? Right now, I'm thinking Sadie & Molly or possibly Anna & Emma which maybe is too cutesy? I don't know. I'm completely open to suggestion at this point. If we have one boy/one girl, the boy would probably be Felix or Leo. What do you like for twin girls? Any strategies?
    No strategies.

    I suggest:
    Tessa and Cora
    Poppy and Sadie
    Molly and Daisy
    Anna and Emma
    I dislike the rest.


    Middles:
    Tessa Eve and Cora Rose
    Poppy Kate and Sadie Love
    Molly Mae and Daisy Eve
    Anna Rose and Emma Mae
    Sorry for bad English, I am from other country
