    twins with the same names

    So a friend of mine has 4 boys: Felix, Max, Ralph & Carter. I personally think this is an awesome sibset!

    But... Ralph and Carter are twins and their full names are:

    Ralph Carter & Carter Ralph.

    Just wondering what the general consensus on the reversing of the names was? Whether it's a cute link or whether you think it could cause identity issues? Personally I can't decide.

    I've known twins named Mary and Molly and Sarah and Sally. It absolutely drives me up the wall. They literally have the same name. I don't like reversed names or rhyming names or names that are only a letter or two off from each other. Same initials don't bother me as long as the names are different enough.

    Helen ▵ Georgia ▵ Rose ▵ Mary ▵ Iris
    Ciarán ▵ Blaise ▵ Fionnbharr ▵ Remus ▵ Perseus
    Jane ▵ Alice ▵ Niamh ▵ Minerva ▵ Guinevere

    I agree with this. Are they too lazy to think of other names?

    I think that's really weird. Why would you do that?
