Sibling Names: Your picture-perfect pairs?

Our Question of the Week

We love a good sibset here at Nameberry!

That’s why there’s a whole sub-forum dedicated to finding the perfect little brother or sister name, hundreds of baby name games devoted to the subject, and countless threads and blog posts speculating about future celebrity sibsets — the bigger, bolder and more bonkers the better!

But there’s a lot to be said for the sweet simplicity of a stunning sibling pair. And this recent Forums topic got us thinking: which two names are, to you, pure perfection together?

No cheating please! Just two names per sibset: G/G, B/B, G/B.

We’re especially loving Sylvie and Margot, Felix and Otto, and Hermione and Lysander from the original thread… Can you top them?

And a bonus question: do you know any picture-perfect sibling pairs in real life?

Why only pairs?

As a twin myself, I’ve always thought of names in pairs! I love that my sister and I have distinct names instead of something that rhymes or is too similar. I really appreciated that growing up!

Leaning towards these pairs right now:

Lena & Elsie
Reed & Claire
Abram & Isaiah

but honestly, I would be okay with any arrangement of these names. Love Lena, Elsie & Claire as a group of three sisters!

My twins are due in October so this question has been on my mind a lot lately. My current favorite pairs are:

Marigold & Juliet
Kalinda & Dixon
Truman & Quade

My older son’s name is Charleston so I’ve been trying to find twin names that fit with his!

Coralie & Finian (Cora and Finn)
Miles & Atlas (Milo and Attie)
Cassia & Rosalie (Cassie and Rosa)

I love pairs that have about the same number of letters, and both have a cute nickname. Finian and Coralie I have loved as a pair for a long time, but the others are new.
