Based on the England and Wales top 50, I think my twins would be either Isaac/Rory (B/B), Rory/Lily (B/G) or Lily/Erin (G/G).

I used the the Canadian top 50, and I have 2 for both:
BB: Felix and Levi, Noah and Thomas;
GG: Claire and Alice, Hannah and Emma;
BG: Thomas and Emma, Lily and Levi.
Also know a pair of girl twins named Penelope and Victoria (like the pair you made above).
