    I don't have any children, but I write like crazy and am always looking for names for characters. I think I'm a half decent story teller, a mediocre writer, but horrible at picking names.

    Trying to suss out your family trees but there's only a couple of names that strikes me as off. I'd see Olivia as only really suiting a teen or younger, and I find Hilary rather dated - I wouldn't expect someone named Jimmy (a fairly dated nickname in itself) to have an older sister Olivia and a girlfriend Hilary, as those two female names are a generation or so apart to me.

    I also find Scarlett and Juliet a little matchy for twins, but if matchy names is what you're after then it works. I find Harlan a bit more of a modern sounding name as well with all the surnamey vibe names that are popular, but I guess it has history enough to work here.

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George

    Thanks, essjay for responding.

    Jimmy, Olivia, Hilary were all born in the 70's. Would Heather or Laura work better for Jimmy's sister? How about Monique, Marcy, or Myra for Jimmy Dr. girlfriend?

    Scarlett and Juliet are named what they're named because their mother was very much into old movies, and famous people....her twins are named after Scarlett from Gone with the Wind and Juliet from Romeo and Juliet. For their father, I picked Harlan because it is different and different would catch Jean's attention.

    Yeah, I think changing Olivia to something a bit more classic 70s might be better. Heather or Laura would be fine for her, but I'd be cautious about switching Hilary to Myra, as that name has strong associations in the UK as being that of a serial killer (Myra Hindley) so is pretty unusable over here at least. If you want to switch it, I'd suggest Monique (or Monica) as being the better of your options.

    Fair enough on Scarlett and Juliet, with that back story the names are fine. Ditto Harlan, if you want something different it works.
