Expecting boy/girl twins! Unsure of names!!
Baby boy and girl expected November 4 or sooner! Just found out the genders and would like to have some names picked! Need advice on one name in particular, and I have a few middles picked out.
For the baby boy....
Elwood (the father is obsessed with this and won't budge. I don't mind it but I would like a good middle name)
Elwood Jaeger (boyfriends choice, I'm unsure)
My favorites for baby boy: Everett, Jethro, Jude, Emmett, Lewis, Asher, Archer. No clue about middle names for any of those, open to suggestions and also names close to Elwood or a better middle name for Elwood.
Girls! Thankfully my boyfriend hasn't said much about girl names. And if we go with Elwood for the boy I'm definitely picking the girl name. I would LOVE to have Gemini as a middle name, as it is our sign and it means Twins. But Gemini seems like more of a middle name, at least that's the way I see it. What are some good middle names for Gemini? And what do you all think of my other favorites for our baby girl...
Open to any baby girl suggestions.
And I'm super unsure about if I want the twins names to "match" or be completely different from each other.. Open to good pairs!! Lets just say I am open to any suggestions based on anything similar to what I have here....
I feel such pressure naming TWO babies, my mind is overwhelmed.
Oh and I don't know if we share last names on here (I'm new and this is my first post) but the last name for both babes is pronounced (Dah-wear-on)

Welcome to Nameberry and congratulations on twins!
Elwood is a cool name. It is rare and sounds strong and handsome. I am thinking Elwood James would be especially nice.
I agree with you that Gemini makes a better middle name than a first name. As far as firsts go, I like it when twins have subtle-y matching names, but do not share the same first letter. Even so, I do think Elwood and Emmeline go really nicely together! Adeline might also be a nice choice.
Maya Gemini & Elwood James would work, but I'm not sure it has that twin cohesiveness that you might be looking for.
Elwood & Ainsley
Elwood & Ashley
Elwood & Hazel (I love these two together, although I don't know if Hazel is your style)
I hope that helps!Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

Thank you! I like Elwood James for sure, I will suggest that to the boss lol, he was also suggesting Elwood Benjiman.
I am starting to fall in love with the name Emmaline, but maybe more with Emmalynn. What would be good middles for Emmalynn?
I agree Maya Gemini is nice, I'm starting to think it is the only way Gemini will work.
Thanks again for your reply !
