    Twin Names - which sets do you like best?

    I posted earlier in "name talk" about classic names... here are some of the names I like for my twins due in May:

    GIRL NAMES
    Grace
    Hannah
    Josephine
    Leah
    Eleanor
    Anne
    Kate
    Natalie
    Nora

    BOYS
    Andrew
    Joe
    John
    James
    George
    Henry
    Joshua

    I don't know sexes yet, so make combinations of boy/boy, boy/girl, girl/girl if you can... also, if you have other classic/vintage combinations, I would love to get some more ideas!
    Thanks!
