    Sister Names for Rigel and Regulus

    Hi! I have two boys named Rigel Edmund and Regulus James. My husband and I are expecting twin girls in August and are struggling to find twin gurl names that we like and feel go well with Rigel and Regulus. We love space names (hence our boys names) and want our girls to share the the same first letter like our boys do.

    Any suggestions would be awesome!

    Congratulations on your twins! I've picked out some combinations that are a bit different but feel very wearable just as your sons' names are.

    Estelle and Elara, Maia and Mimosa, Lyra and Livana. Thoughts?

    Ok, this was a lot of fun!
    As far as meaning goes, Alula is the first double star to be identified as physically related to it’s twin. So if the meaning isn’t to on the nose for you all, I certainly like the fact that it is both space and twin themed.

    Alula and Ayla
    Alcyone and Adhara
    Astra and Ara
    Andromeda and Aquila
    Carina and Ceres- I like that this set starts with the same letter but has a different sound
    Electra and Eris
    Galatea and Gemini- again the twin connection and so much nickname potential with this set. Gem is incredible in my opinion.
    Hesper and Hydra- something about Hesper is just striking to me.

    Good luck and let us know what you decide

    Rigel and Regulus are such cool names! How do you pronounce them both?

    My personal favourite R names:

    Raven
    Rayen "ry-en"
    Reeve
    Revelyn
    Rey (Space-themed due to Star Wars?)
    River
    Romia
    Rosa
    Rosemary
    Rosie
    Royalty
    Ruby

    Other ideas:

    Rasalas (A star in the constellation of Leo, and the babies could be Leos!)
    Resnik (Judith Resnik was the fourth woman in space)
    Rhea (Margaret Rhea Seddon flew on three Space Shuttle flights)
    Roberta (Roberta Bondar was the first Canadian woman in space)
    Rubins (Kathleen Rubins is a current NASA astronaut)
    Jess, 26, England

    Thanks so much!!! All of these suggestions are fantastic! Rigel is pronounced Rhy-gel and Regulus is pronounced exactly as it looks Reg-u-lus- that’s the best thing about old Latin names

    My favorite so far are Cressida and Calypso, but my husband and I are worried about some of the negative connotations that hang around them..

    next comes Elara, but we are struggling to find another E name that is resonating with us..

    Shout out to kate2552 for the name Alula! It is so perfect!! But my husband, , says it sounds too much like a stripper name. It’s a hard no

    Carina is another constellation name—maybe to pair with Cressida or Calypso if you're worried about one of them?

    With Elara, what about Elysia or Eve? I realize Eve isn't overtly space-related, but it does conjure images of a lovely sunset and the stars coming out.

    A few other space-related ideas:

    Despina
    Gemma
    Helene
    Larissa, Leda
    Talitha and Tania (the names of stars in Ursa Major—I love these for sisters!)
