Twin Girl Names Link in Fresh Ways
Twin girl names are a baby name lover’s dream, offering double the fun along with twice the challenge.
The trick in choosing names for twin girls in 2020 is connecting them in ways that are subtle but not matchy-matchy.
Twin girl names today might be connected by a first initial, by origin, style, or meaning. But it’s best to link with only one of these factors and at the same time build in some differences between your daughters’ names.
If you choose two French girl names, say, then pick names with different first letters and rhythms: Delphine and Juliette. Or rather than two flower names such as Rose and Lily, pick two names from different elements of nature, like Willow and Lake.
If contemporary twin girl names share the first initial, they should be distinct in sound: Charlotte and Claire, for instance. And if they share a sound and feel — two short, one-syllable names, say — they should have a different first initial, like Bea and June.
We do believe that no matter what their connections, twin names should be from compatible styles at similar popularity levels. Mixing vintage and modern names or a Top 10 name with a highly unique choice just seems odd. So, no to Phoebe and Phoenix or Emma and Emberly (for more reasons than one).
But let’s look at some pairs that connect in different ways and do work. These twin girl names are all on our recommended list.

Scarlett and Juliet. The ‘Ett’ sound ties the 2 together but they’re still different and not matchy

Clara and Lucy. They’re similar in meaning and style without being grotesquely matchy.

If I had twin girls, I’d call them Harriet and Adelaide. They’re two names I’ve loved for longer than I can remember, and both have special meaning for me. They might not be of comparable popularity (at least, not in the UK), but they both have a gently old-fashioned feel that I adore.
