    Are these names too matchy for twins?

    In a story that's half-formed in my head, there's twin brothers who are extremely close. Both incredibly smart, talented, and extroverted, but one more serious. Right now, the goofy one is Archer and the serious one is Fletcher. Are Archer and Fletcher too themed to work well together?

    Yikes. In real life I'd say yes, they're far too closely matched; they'd just need a brother called Beau to complete the set For a story I think it's fine.

    I don't even think it's fine for a story. Those are the types of twin names that would make me huff and set the book down. Archer and Fletcher now only rhyme but a Fletcher makes arrows >.<

    And Renrose...lol!
