The description of the name says that Field could be considered the guy version of Meadow. I just thought that Field and Meadow sounds like some of the crazy things a parent of boy/girl twins would name their kids. I don't have a real problem with it, I'd just never do it. Fisher and Hunter (both of which I really like) sound kinda, I don't know, forced to me when they're put together as a sibset, just like Field and Meadow, so I mentioned them. I didn't mean to offend anybody.

Who said anything about twins named Field and Meadow or Fisher and Hunter? I don't understand this comment.

Can you imagine? A little set of twins named Field and Meadow. That's almost as bad as Fisher and Hunter. Not my taste.
