Naming twins might be one of the biggest challenges and greatest pleasures for a baby namer — and finding unique twin names can make that challenge all the more daunting.

Many parents naming twins default to the obvious choices from the most popular names list, like Emma and Eva or Jackson and Jonathan. And popular twin names 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 Mars, no; Jupiter and Juniper, still no. But Jupiter and Freya? Now you’re talking.

What are you cleverest, most creative ideas for unique names for twins?

Give us names for two girls, two boys, or a mixed set, as long as they’re unique and fun. And if the connection isn’t obvious, enlighten us!
