Girl Twin Names: What would you choose?

It’s a name nerd’s fantasy: Naming twin girls.

You want two girls’ names that are compatible yet distinct, that are consistent in style and image and gender identity yet sound no more alike than the names of sisters.

The most popular names for girl twins range from the top of the charts Olivia and Sophia to cutesy pairs such as Faith and Hope or Heaven and Neveah to sound-alikes Ella and Emma.Β  But we know you can do better than that.

Our choice might be Susannah and Marguerite, united because they both have secret flower meanings (lily and daisy) and are both classic names that lie outside the Top 1000.Β  But we can think of so many other pairs we might choose, and definitely would have fun exploring the options as thoroughly as possible.

But what about you?Β  What would you name twin girls and why?

I’ve thought about this more than is probably deemed normal. Allegra and Daphne. Both sound British by way of Greece, but are distinct enough to avoid dreaded matchy-matchyness.

Elizabeth Jane and Magnolia Grace

As of right now, I love the names Pamela and Gwen. They are similarly girly without being frilly and would both grow with a girl appropriately.

For me, I tend just to choose names that simply sound good together, not really thinking about the origins, beginning/ending letters, number of syllables, etc.

Elisabeth and Delilah
Piper and Scout
Esme and Lyra or Harlow and Esme
Violet and Daphne

It totally is a dream come true πŸ™‚

Adelaide Lucy and Hazel Katherine. Two stunning first names with middles that have personal meaning.

Naming twin girls would be a nightmare to me. Now twin boys I could name in a heartbeat, but twin girls? I would have a terrible time.

I’ll have to go with Helen and Cora since they’re my two favorite girl’s names.

sallycaitlin Says:

December 25th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

Due to our shared love of The Beatles, we’ve joked about naming any future twin girls Penny Lane, after his favorite song, and Eleanor Rigby, after mine.

In reality, I think that if one girl has a unisex name, the other should too: Hadley and Avery, Sawyer and Peyton, etc.

witchgreens Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:18 am

Today they would be Juniper Ophelia and Elowen Aurelia, although they’re a little more matchy than my usual taste. Juniper and Elowen are both tree names without being too obvious, which I love, and they’re same number of syllables. The mn are pretty close but because it’s not the fn, I think it would be ok.

starophie Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:19 am

right now, seraphina and josephine, with the nns sadie and josie. i liked that they have that same phin sound in the middle, but don’t really sound too similar, and both those names give me shivers to think about. but i don’t know if i could actually go through with it.

twins are my ultimate fantasy – i have wanted to be a twin since before i can remember!

Kibby Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:22 am

I do not have a name picked out for one daughter much less Two! But I would love the Chance!
Perhaps
Avalon and Fable
Lavender and Araminta
Cordelia and Autumn
Hadley and Amabel
Natalie and Odessa

amandaberry Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:24 am

I’ve actually not spent that much time thinking about twin names because I really couldn’t imagine having twins, it doesn’t seem like reality so I never felt the need to prepare for it, but for the sake of humoring this blog I will choose.

*Cordelia and Juliet
*Fiona and Maeve

shellezbellez Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:41 am

Susannah (nn Sansa) and Tosca or Cassia

I like all of these names; Susannah is a family name, and I really like the nn Sansa for it; it’s different and unique and has a bit of a sassy edge. I think the same things about Tosca and Cassia!

Definitely a namers fantasy! I have so many variations of my favorite girl twins names, but here are some of my favorites,

As the mother of boys, this is, for me, a completely hypothetical exercise; so I can go a bit nuts, and the options are endless…not that I would use all these if I could, but I think they’re cool combos nonetheless:

Meade and Faire
Bay and Blij
Cameo and Heirloom
Vintage and Heritage
Indy and Jadzia
Lane and Quince
Swansea and Somerset
Shire and Fifer
Afton and Saffron
Poet and Stardust
Maypole and Holliday
Cair and Shasta

I am loving Story and Lyric as dream girls names, maybe as middle names like Josephine Lyric and Amelia Story. Or as first names like Story Elizabeth and Lyric Grace.
They are currently my favorite dream names, Classy and definitly girls names, but unique in their own way. Easy to spell and common, yet not common as names. And they cover my biggest passions, reading, singing, and writting poetry.

Goodkarmavt Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 8:35 am

Evangeline Winter and Magnolia Alice or Juliet Snow and Corisande Noa.

caroline147 Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 8:39 am

I think my top two girl’s names would make a great twinset: Verity & Annora, Vivi & Anna. Both three syllable, non-obvious virtue names.

Guilty pleasure twinset: Alice & Celia.

I also like Louisa Beatrix nn Lux & Verity Olivia nn Vivi.

vulturine Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 9:06 am

I think I’d probably go with Violet and Annora, which are my top names. Alternatively, I like Violet & Luella “Lula”, Violet & Helena, and Violet & Ramona.

Vivian and Frances. I love the lush and glamorous, yet classic feel of both names. Frances is actually my DD middle name.

violetgray Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 9:39 am

Kate Isabelle and Lila Josephine. Lila is really NMS but it sounds so nice with Kate and with the mn Josephine which I love.

I also like Alice Emmeline & Eloise Madeline even though its kinda cutesy.

Georgia McKenzie and Louisa Marie have always seemed to go together. Though Georgia + Virginia would make for a more matchy pair.
Roisin and Niamh is another one, though Niamh isn’t my favorite.

brynnash Says:

I’d use the same names I would use if I had two daughters of different ages:
Caroline Alexandria and Genevieve Audrey

Hmm. I can’t say I’ve honestly thought this over too much, but if I were to have twin girls, here are some names I might use –

Skye Marie & Lucy Quinn

Gina Rose & Cara Elizabeth

Isobel Violet & Robyn Sophie

Natalie Poe & Joanna Grace

Clairie Jean & Elsbeth Monet

Aurra Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 11:28 am

Like many a name nerd, mine change daily. But here are so pairs:

Mabel and Matilda (I don’t think this is too matchy)
Matilda and Mavis (Classic, not popular, with same first letter but seperate sounds)
Lucy and Keira (Lucy means light, Keira means dark)
Kaia and Naomi (both Japanese names without sounding like it)

December 26th, 2012 at 11:34 am

Definitely a dream come true! I could go two ways:
1. My husband gets his favorite name and I get mine: Charlotte & Rosalie
2. We compromise and go with names we both can agree on that also were picked as favorites by my step daughters: Ella & Olivia

leonielee Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 11:37 am

Margot & Ingrid. Our two favorite girls names, plus I think they have the the same general vibe. Both are traditional names in European countries, both are recognizable but far from common, both have an “Old Hollywood” vibe, and they both have positive associations for us (one is the name of a character in our favorite movie, the other is the name of one of our favorite musicians.) They are both just so completely perfect to us!

CrazyAboutNames Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:05 pm

If i had twin Girls i would name them…
Rosalie Anastasia and Elena Scarlett

anniebee Says:

Realistically: Margaret Azalea and Alice Juniper

(middle names are after holes on Augusta National – the bf loves golf)

ive always wanted twin girls!
Lux and Ever
Both modern but wearable, but i switch mns everyday!

LuzVictoria Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:25 pm

We would use Julia, Juliana, or Juliet for one girl and I always have fun thinking about what we would name the other. I think…
Julia & Laura or Julia & Diana
Juliana & Raphaela or Juliana & Francesca
Juliet & Sabrina or Juliet & Tess

BritishAmerican Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Beatrice & Dorothy. Both three syllables, with the nicknames of Bee & Dot.

I think Pearl & Rose would be lovely for twin girls too – but I already have a Rose and friends have a Pearl.

KickinKay Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I would choose Sora and Aria because they are my two favorite girls’ names. Both four letters and end in A, also they have similar meanings, Sora meaning “songbird” and Aria being an Italian music term.

MaryKathryn Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Rosie and Sophie! So common, but so me!

ClaireDarling Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 2:02 pm

janetm Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 2:11 pm

I’m living this dream right now! Twenty-two weeks pregnant with two girls, and I’m definitely a name nerd. I’m surprised, though, at how hard it’s been to narrow things down when you’re doing two at a time. It’s overwhelming in a way naming my first daughter wasn’t. Maybe I’m just afraid to commit this time and some names I really love (Isabel and Penelope) are too popular (or becoming so) for my taste. But I’m enjoying reading all your responses!

IndianRuby Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Lucy and Nora. Both share a ‘light’ meaning and are, conveniently, my top two anyway :). Combos would probably be Lucy Annabel and Nora Willow, though I might want to keep the nature theme in the middle and have Lucy Willow and Nora Sage.

MamaBear25 Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 3:45 pm

I’ve thought about this oh so much! I would name them Cordelia June and Eloise Rebecca. Cordelia and Eloise are both head-turning names that aren’t heard much but are both very classic and have a lot of elegance. Cordelia would go by Cora most of the time, Eloise would go by Elsie most of the time, and they would also have other cute nicknames like Delia, Del, Deli, Cori, and Elle, Ellie, Lou, and Weezy, respectively. πŸ™‚

Totally a namer’s dream.

I love the idea of Margaret Lily and Susannah Pearl–the meaning of the other twin’s name being the middle name.

Or:
Margaret and Theodora (Daisy and Dora)
Margaret and Therese (Mae and Tess–my two favorite full names and nicknames!)

jeniferbraun Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Hey JanetM! I’m with you — now at 34 wks pregnant with twins girls and you are right, the reality is SO much more complicated and difficult than the fantasy. Naming my singleton boy was a snap compared to this.

These were some pairs of names I had in my head for my dream twin girls, before they became a reality for us. (I’m using NONE of these names in real life!)

Anne and Elinor (fave Austen heroines)
Rosalind and Beatrice (fave Shakespeare heroines)
Lake and Willow (fave nature names)
Louisa and Susannah (literary names — for Louisa May Alcott and Shakespeare’s oldest daughter)

klcalder2 Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

This is a fun challenge! SO many good combos here so far. I’m torn between these three sets:

Lyra Catherine
Hermione Nora

Esme Susannah
Thea Rosalie

Rosalind Hero
Viola Beatrice

HerMajesty Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

I would use two middle names if I had twins so they could match, but still be uniquely their own.
Drucilla Lavender Selene & Aurora Rose Hekate
Drucilla and Aurora are both Roman/Greek names
Lavender and Rose are both flowers, but purple is my favourite color and roses have one of the prettyist sents
Selene and Hekate are both moon goddesses, and greek, so it works both ways.
I would also use Kelyn Aurora Yvaine & Zorinda Esther Izabelle
Aurora and Zorinda both meaning Dawn
Zorinda and Kelyn both being Hebrew AND meaning Beauty
Esther and Yvaine both mean Star.

jadem Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:19 pm

i would name them Rylee and Sayde/Saidee/Sadie.
ive always LOVED those names, but the BoyF wont use them UNLESS we have twin girls. πŸ™

purplekitty5773 Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:28 pm

My name choices would be Josepha and Esther, both are biblical so they could have a connection there and they just happen to be my favorite names of the moment.

dlawsonsmith Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Daisy Ainsley & Isla Wren

Jennie Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

I normally don’t like matchy names that start with the same first letter, but our top two girl names would make a nice twin set in my opinion: Lyra and Linnea.

Winnie Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Aww one of my favorite name day dreams!!

Violet Esther (Esther after my hub’s Gma)
Susannah Louise (Louise after my Great Gma)

My little Violet would dress in purple dresses and baby Suzy in colors of sunshine πŸ™‚

Big sister Audrey as already claimed pink

stormygirl84 Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:57 pm

It’s kind of cheesy, but…

Rose and Ivy
or
Laurel and Violet

Yeah, they’re matchy-matchy flower names, but it’s better than rhyming names. I also hate when people give twins alliterated names.

I also REALLY like

Catalina and Galatea

But I don’t know if I’d have the guts to use them.

EmmaKate Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 5:59 pm

As a twin myself, I think its vital that each baby has their own identity with a name that is their own. Too many twins are named things like “Amanda & Samantha” or “Mia and Ami”. So my two combination choices(depending of course on the girls and which names fit them best) would have to be…

Ksenia Abigail
Selene Isabeau

OR

Briony Rose
Waverly Blair

Alexia Mae Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Penelope and Nicolette. I would call them Penny and Nickel, which I think is so cute!

thelifespark Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

I think Raffaela and Gwendolyn would be lush together! Both long, unusual, romantic names and I like the sort of opposite color and feeling they have (Raffaela looks like dark blue taffeta and Gwendolyn looks like white marble).

Daphne and Phoebe almost seem to matchy but they would be so sweet together. Both are Greek and have a spunky, sassy vibe while still being sort of sweet and feminine.

Well, what I really want is twin boys, or boy and girl twins, but for twin girls, I’d probably go with Tabitha Lynn and Coralie Cascade.

littlebrownpony Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Stella Grace and Iris June OR Cecelia June

BUT, I agree with the previous poster who said boy twins would be much easier. There are a billion boy names that I love and only a handful of girl names.

caty_beth89 Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

I’m pretty sure we’re done having kids once DD is born in March, BUT since I would be likely to have twins if we were to have another pregnancy (twins run in my family and tend to be the third pregnancy), I can’t pretend I haven’t fantasized about this scenario. Everyone in my little family has first names that end with N; Brian, Cathryn, Benton, and Arwen. Therefore, I think I’d go with Imogen and Helen.

AbbyB Says:

I just find it alarming that enough poor twinsets were called “London and Paris” that it made the top 50. Also poor “Haylee and Kaylee” My mother went to school with triplets Marlene, Sharlene and Darlene. I gather their names were equally as trendy in the 50s, and rhyming names that may be charming on wee toddlers must seem so cringe-worthy on three grown women.

ashthedreamer Says:

December 26th, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Honestly, I can’t imagine using something other than my top 2 (Isabelle and Arianne). Stylistically, they are pretty perfect together, and I love the understated religious meanings (“my God is a vow” and “very holy one”).

Although I do entertain the idea of something very French-chic, like Anne-Sophie and Aurelie, or something literary, like Isabella and Catherine or Gwendolyn and Cecily (although those are a bit cheesy-literary, but I love them!).

I would love to use Evangeline and Seraphina but I don’t know if I ever would. In reality I would probably go with Aurora Alice Seraphina and Cordelia Helen Evangeline

Probably Susannah and Alessandra. Don’t know middle names yet.

Other twins:

Angelina Rosemary Faith and Susannah Caroline Jade

These 4 in a variety of combinations:

Eden, Everly, Emerson (nn Emme), and Esme
(but not Emerson and Esme)

for meanings, etc:
Eden & Arcadia – both mean unspoiled paradise
Penelope & Persephone (nn: Poppy & Posy) Greek with floral nn
Phoebe & Chloe – Greek, and I like the “oe” connection

our cats are Fiona & Nola – both meaning “white/bright”

mermuse Says:

December 27th, 2012 at 2:26 pm

My fantasy twin girls:

Anastasia & Amarantha

Both Greek, both long and melodic, both start and end with ‘A,’ both with meanings related to everlasting life/immortality (‘resurrection’ and ‘unfading’)

Like probably every other berry here, this is easy and I’ve thought about this a lot!

Ursula Joan Adler
Greta Caroline Emily

Both fn are very Germanic names (one meaning ;little bear’, the other ‘pearl’); both first mn are names of my grandmothers (one of whom is deceased); and the last mn are respectively my favourite female book character and favourite female author.

Zoe and Anastasia — shortened to Ana/Anna if she likes. These names are from the Greek words for Resurrection and Life, an obvious link, but they don’t sound alike at all. (You also get the nice A and Z thing going on.) Since I will probably never have twin girls to try it out on, I might try it out as a first and middle name since it also goes nicely with our first daughter’s name, Vivienne, which is from the Latin/French for Life.

ElleMaria Says:

January 15th, 2013 at 7:54 am

OOh I’m loving seeing all the Eleanors! My name is actually spelt EleanorE (pronounced Elle-A-NoR rhymes with core not Elle-A-Na) My Dad chose my name as he wanted to call me Elle but didn’t want to give me a nickname.
I love my name as there aren’t any other EleanorEs around and there weren’t any at school either. My sister is called Charlotte so it’s always been Charlotte and Eleanore.

Anyway, I’m expecting twin girls in May so I’m busy trying to think of unique, and yet not silly names – so hard!! I’m not a trend follower I just want equally pleasing, timeless and elegant names…. think this may take a while. Is it just me or are boys names sooo much easier to think of? I had Morgan and Tobin lined up incase they were boys and I already have my gorgeous Gabriel, girls names are so hard!!xx

SummerK Says:

February 8th, 2013 at 9:54 am

Celandine and Elodie – both old-fashioned not done to death flower-names

Eleanor and Catherine – both great queens

Elspeth and Eilish – both variants of Elizabeth and a tribute to my mother

SummerK Says:

Alethea and Verity – both mean ‘Truth’

It took us forever to finally agree on our girls names. We went to the hospital with one set of names and then they just didnt fit them so we pulled up some of our other faves and their names both fit them perfectly.
Originally our girls were going to be Eden Harper and Kinsley Jane, but ended up being Sawyer Brooke and Payton Elizabeth. We also loved the names
Sela and Myla.

Tenley and Swyazee

Dylan and Rylan

Ridley and Hadley

Olivia and Ivy

Maddingly and Tegan

I have never thought of twin names, and there are so many good ones on here! If I wasn’t to do matchy ones I’d just go w some faves that seem to flow:
Isla and Freya (very feminine and light)
Tabitha and Lyra (still feminine but not as light)
For more matching and word names I thought of:
Lyric and Bliss (emotional)
Lark and Linaea perhaps too (nature)
I like the idea of two names meaning similar/same things too like Dawn and Aurora etc

Necessary_Evil Says:

June 14th, 2013 at 1:39 pm

I don’t really think about twin names, but I’ll give it a go! Erm…
– Florence & Cecily
– Elizabeth & Katherine
– Lydia & Eleanor
If I was fancying a more matchy set (unlikely, but it could happen)…
– Azalea & Artemis (A-names)
– Willow & Juniper (Tree names)
– Arianne Margaux & OphΓ©lie Helene (French versions of my favourite ‘exotic’ names – Arianna and Ophelia – and two syllable mns).

Let me just say something to anyone expecting twins before giving my favorite twin names. Make sure that the names will make the kids feel equal. For example, doing something like naming your kids a name that is in the top ten most popular girls names and then naming the other child something that isn’t even on the top 1,000 top baby names. One will probably not be happy with the fact that there are 3 other girls in their grade with the same name, and then the other will feel left out because very few people will have the same name, and there may be problems with pronouncing that name. I’ve seen combinations in the comments that might cause this. You don’t want one or both of the twins to be left out. If they both have popular names, or both of them have uncommon names then they will feel better, because the other twin feels the same way. Just remember that the kids are humans that will be communicating with other people and that they will have feelings. My name is Natalie, and I have an older sister named ChloΓ« (it’s the same as Chloe, but their are the two dots over the e on her birth certificate, so she keeps it) and a little sister named Lily. My two siblings have names that are rising in popularity, and that you hear a lot in children. My name is popular, but I have not heard of any recent baby girls being named Natalie. I have heard of many girls named Lily that have a sister named Chloe. Even though we aren’t twins, I still can’t help but feel slightly left out. It’s not a major problem, but I personally like having a common name, but it is not as popular as my sister’s names are becoming. So remember that your twins at most likely going to be very close, so you don’t want one of them to feel left out.

Ok so for my twin girl names, I would have to look at them firs t to see what they look like first, but my ideas are:

Tatiana Violet and Tabitha Valerie (with the nicknames Tati and Tabi)

Sapphire Thalia and Sylvia Therese
(with the nicknames Saffie and Sylvie)

Blair Ottilie and Carrie Athena (both first names are horror movie themed, I would probably use these if I had the twins in October)

Camilla Paige and Callista Brooke (with the nicknames Cami and Calli)

(If you haven’t noticed by now, I really like nicknames)

Charlotte Luna and Mikayla Stella
(with the nicknames Lottie/Char and Mickey/Kay)

Lorelei Sage and Bridgette Della
(nicknames Rory and Bridie)

and finally,
Hayden Calla and Devin Laila

So many great sets! Everyone make babies and or write a story. I could prolly dig in my list and find some good ones, but recently I thought of alondra and Paloma…lark and dove in spanish! Otherwise I like the suggestion of hazel and olive or other similar nature match up. Linnea and lyra is cute too and top my girls list!

I had boy/girl twins who I named Atticus & Beatrix, but if they were girls, I was planning on naming them Hazel and Olive. Still bummed that I will never get to use those names- my husband named our first two daughters whom I wanted to use those names on (that would have been a GREAT sib set- Hazel, Olive, Atticus, Beatrix.. sigh..), but he didn’t agree with my choices at the time, he finally relented when I was insistent on using the names if our twins were g/g, but we got b/g and I gave them names that I love so much, anyway. πŸ™‚

Amelie and Louisa
Alice and Clara
Autumn and Willow
Maisie and Esther (or Louise)
Eva and Zoe
