    Twin name thoughts

    I've always thought that having a set of twins where either their nicknames, or middle names are Loch and Ness/Nessie would be really cute, and a nice little nod towards my very close scottish roots. I don't plan on calling them this as much as their real names, though I still like the idea. I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions/thoughts/suggestions on this, or even ideas of names to get Loch and Ness/Nessie. As of now, my favourites are just Loch and Nessa. I've imagined Loch being the boy twin, and Ness being the girl, though I think they can both equally be used as unisex names. Thanks for your input.

    I imagine most people would be opposed to this idea/think it's far out there but I don't see it being a big deal if you only use Loch & Ness as their nicknames. I think the middle name thing would still get people going but like I said, if anyone said anything about you using Loch & Ness as nicknames I'd say that's entirely uncalled for. As long as it's not a derogatory term I think nicknames shouldn't be scrutinized as closely as the given name because they're meant to be pet names anyways. Also, when I hear Loch & Ness/Nessie I automatically think Loch is the boy twin & Ness is the girl, if that helps at all. Here are some suggestions for arriving at those nicknames:

    Lachlan
    Locksley
    Loxley
    (Locksley Archer or Loxley Archer would make a cool heroic name imo, a nod to Robin Hood!)
    Malachi


    Agnes
    Agnesa/Agnessa
    Agnesina
    Agneska
    Aneska
    Anessa
    Anessonia
    Ernesta
    Ganesa
    Genessa
    Genese
    Genesis
    Gweness
    Janessa
    Janeska
    Ines
    Nesima
    Nessima
    Nesta
    Vanesa
    Vanessa
    Ynes
    Inesa

    I think grace_newgrace took care of the suggestions. As for my personal opinion on Loch and Ness as nns, I don't think it's the worst thing you could do, but I do think it's a little cheesy. Just because you think it's cute and amusing doesn't mean your kids will. I'm sure it will get old at some point, and inevitably, someone is going to point it out if their names are as obvious as Loch and Nessa. I also don't think of Loch and Ness as unisex names, but that's a rant for another time.

    Mostly just a reader, but occasionally a writer as well. I also just really like names.
