Help the Bode Millers Name Their Twin Boys!

Help the Bode Millers Name Their Twin Boys!

Olympic skier Bode Miller and wife Morgan Beck Miller recently became the parents of identical twin boys — but now they need twin names!

The Millers told People Magazine that they were having trouble agreeing on names for their twins.

“It’s a daily battle to the point where some days we have to stop the conversation and revisit the following day,” Beck Miller told People. “I come from very traditional names, like my dad is Edward. But Bode’s family, they have much more unique names. For example, his sister’s name is Genesis Wren Bungo Windrushing Turtleheart.”

Beck Miller invited visitors to her Instagram to vote on whether the couple should name one of the twins Beck, with 68% saying yes, Today Parents reports.

The Millers are parents to sons Easton Vaughn Rek, 13 months, and Edward Nash Skan, 4, called Nash. They lost daughter Emeline Grier in a tragic drown accident in 2018.  Miller is also father to daughter Dace, 11, and son, Nate, 6.

The couple took three weeks to name son Easton, so they’re accustomed to trusting in a long process. And finding two names can be more than double the challenge.

“Always finding the blend of the two names is a challenge, but I feel like we’ve done a really good job in the past of creating these unique names that end up fitting our kids,” Beck Miller told Today.

We have some ideas that might help the couple decide.
