    Thaddeus and Theodore

    Would Thaddeus and Theodore be good names for twins? I like both names and I like the nicknames Thadd and Theo but I think it might be to cutesy or seem like I was trying to hard if I ever had twins and used them.

    What do you guys think?

    I think they would be too matchy-matchy, if you want my honest opinion. Being a twin is hard enough, being constantly compared to the other one, without a name so close as well. Also, if they're identical, it makes it harder for teachers to get their names right...

    I agree with @ciottolo. Thaddeus and Theodore are too matchy. What makes it worse is
    when you look up Thaddeus on behindthename.com is suggest that you "see Theodore".
    I'd probably choose one and find a different name that works with it because it has similar properties or origin but is quite different. For example: my "twin" set for boys used to be Tristan and Prosper. (I liked that they both had 7 letters and r's and s's in the same location).

    Endora & Lorelei / Dexter & Gideon
    ...we are newlyweds and not trying...yet...
