Twin Names: Choosing Names With Contrasting Meanings

August 31, 2010 Pamela Redmond

One of the most interesting blog posts we’ve done – interesting from a research standpoint, I mean — was on twin names that shared a meaning.

So today I decided to spin that idea a bit differently and look for compatible names with contrasting meanings, for twins or for siblings.

I tried to come up with pairs in a range of styles.  This is an exercise with near limitless potential, of course, so if any of you are inclined to search nameberry by meaning for other pairs that fit the bill, we’d love to hear your ideas.

Here, the opposing meanings and names that go with them (and each other):

Beautiful & Brilliant

Black & White

 

Earth & Sea

 

Birds & Bees

 

King & Queen

 

Rich & Brave

 

Calm & Happy
