Sibling Names: Stick with the theme?

a Name Sage post by: Abby View all Name Sage posts

They’re looking for an E name to honor a loved one, plus they’d love to stick with their 4-letter name pattern. Options abound, but which fits best with Levi and Kali?

Help! My husband and I have decided to name one of our baby girls (expecting twins) with an “E” name in honor of my deceased grandfather.

It seems like we would have lots of great choices, but to make things trickier we want a name with just four letters.

We have a four-letter theme going because big brother is named Levi and her twin sister is likely to be named Kali.

Our current favorite “E” names are too long (Emanuelle) or too short (Eva). We like Eila, but fear dooming the child to explaining how to pronounce her name for the rest of her life. We also like Ellis, it resonates with Ellis Island where her great-grandfather immigrated through, but we worry it sounds too much like a last name when she will already have to deal with two last names.

Twin Names, A to Z

A while back, we asked you to list your favorite names, one for a girl and one for a boy, from A to Z.

Now we’re inviting you to reprise that exercise, but with a pair of twin names for each letter.

You are welcome to mix it up: some girl-girl twin names, some boy pairs, and some girl-boy mixes.  Create pairs with clever matching themes or flow, if that’s your preference, or choices that are very distinct from one another and are connected mainly by their first initial.

The only rule is that each pair of twin names start with the same first letter.

So your list might read:

Alice & Arthur

Beatrice & Bridget

Cassius & Cicero

…..and so on.

Your turn!

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.  But we know you can do better than that.
