Unique Twin Names to Inspire!
Finding beautiful and unique twin names that feel well matched but not too matchy can feel like a daunting task.
Naming twins is undoubtedly one of the biggest challenges (and greatest pleasures) facing a baby namer – although our Ultimate Guide to Twin Names is a great place to start!
Many parents naming twins take inspiration from the most popular names list. Some of the most common combinations for twins today consist of modern classics like Olivia and Sophia for girls, Biblical favorites like Elijah and Isaiah for boys, and same-initial pairings like Ava and Aiden for girl-boy twins. And popular twin names do offer many advantages.
But what if you want unique twin names that are connected and compatible yet not too obvious or cutesy? Meaning: Jupiter and Juno, no. Jupiter and Juniper, still no. But Jupiter and Calypso? Now you’re talking!
Here are some original ideas for unique twin names to inspire you. All of these pairings share some connection – whether in meaning, origin, spelling or associations – but all work just as well individually as they do together. And, crucially, none of these names ranks within the current US Top 1000.
