I feel fairly strongly about this issue, being a twin myself. Thankfully, my twin and I have totally different names (Jemima and Gret3l). I knew of twins around my age (so about 20) called Anne and Anna. I almost fell over. It was SO cruel!
Thankfully, most of the twins I know have distinctly separate names.Jemima

I've always liked the idea of twin names having a link.
Having the same meaning... Eve and Zoe
both being a flower... Holly and Daisy
both being a gem... Pearl and Ruby
having similar origins... Daphne and Phoebe
or from the same story... Caleb and Joshua
I think the only combo I like that's pretty "matchy" is Zane and Zara, but since it's for B/G twins I think it's less problematic since they aren't going to get confused.
But I definitely agree that only having a couple letters different is not in the kids best interest; socially, legally, personally, or anything really. Of course, there will always be some twins who really embrace their similarity and want to be as much alike as they can, but from my experience they're more the exception than the rule.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
