Do twins names have to match?
Hey everyone, the other day at work I met twin boys Alejandro and Isaac. Their names threw me off for a second because they didn't sound like twin names. My question for you is do twins have to have "matching" or similar style names?
Also nothing to do with the top part but I met a little girl name Antoinella and thought it was a beautiful choice.previously mwebster2495

I don't think so. Although as a name nerd, I'd probably wince a bit at drastically different twin names in terms of style, like twin girls called Kendall and Josephine (random example). But to be honest I'd feel the same if they were siblings too. Sometimes it can work really well though, and I love some twinsets that are of a completely different style, but because I like the names, it doesn't bother me. E.g. Phaedra & Nikolai or Tabitha & Elsie.
Oh, and Antoinella is very pretty, though Antoinette still has my heart .Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (17) | Future mummy 😏Dreaming of...○ Pandora • Demelza • Marigold • Ariadne • Phaedra ○

Although I love when twin names match with each other, they don't have to.Mom to Yaz "Noddy" Nam

I don't think so at all - I know quite a few sets of twins with varying names:
Emma & Calvin
Lauren & Jacqueline (Jackie)
Michael & Michaela (no word of a lie, I found two sets like this in my high school yearbook)
Jessica & Alexandra
Tiffany & Brandon
Rebecca (Becky) & Joel
Jack & McKayla
Amber & Holly
Emily & Jake
Rebecca & Miriam
Hailey & Summer
William (Willie) & Rheya
I feel like quite a few of those sets don't perfectly match up, but they all seem to work for me (other than Michael and Michaela). I think, when you name twins, you should choose two names you completely love, rather than one name you love, and another that matches perfectly.

I don't think Alejandro and Isaac don't match.... If you mean match like letter wise, I'd prefer they didn't. It's cute when they're themey in a very non obvious way, like both famous authors or both meaning star or something.
Twins I know:
Christine and Elizabeth
Philip and James
David and Joseph
Tyler and Travis
Leo and Cleo (they were much older and since deceased)
Elizabeth and Christopher
Summer and Reed
Andrea and Lauren
Nicholas and Matthew
Nicholas and Dante
Eric and Robert
Plus triplets: Samantha, Robert, and Michael
Kendall, Kayleigh, Maddy (not sure if NN), and Liam
Daniel, Robert, Erin, and Grace
Except for the T names and rhyming names, none "match",but I don't think they don't go wellLillian Elizabeth 6.16.13
