    Rose and June

    So my cousin just had twin girls yesterday, and my husband and I were playing a little game of what if. I'm trying to come up with names if we were to ever have twin girls. Right now I'm LOVING Rose and June but having trouble with middle names. Here are a few of my favorite longer names. Any other suggestions would be appreciated!

    Eleanor
    Frances
    Caroline
    Elizabeth
    Catherine
    Louisa
    Susannah

    Thanks!

    Re: Rose and June

    I love to put short first names with really long middle names:

    Rose Eleanor - stately, lovely, sounds like Eleanor Roosevelt
    Frances - Rose Frances, love Rose Francesca more
    Caroline - I would add an "a": Rose Carolina, not as great as some of the others to my ear
    Elizabeth - June Elizabeth, that is graceful
    Rose Catherine - so lovely! Maybe I would pick this even over Anastasia (see below)
    Louisa - I love Louise Rose, but not Rose Louisa as much. It might grow on me though.
    Susannah - Susannah June is very pretty.

    Rose Anastasia - Anastasia is my favorite middle for Rose and I have thought about it a lot!
    Rose Alexandra
    Rose Isadora, Rose Isabella
    Rose Cosima
    Rose Marianna
    Rose Maddalena
    Rose Cassandra - very lovely!
    Rose Clementina
    Rose Leocadia

    June Francesca - this is so beautiful
    June Clementina - love this
    June Augustine - summery and very fun to say, one of the best
    June Augustina - ditto
    June Viola -
    June Estella - nice balance, it's hard to find a middle name that balances June.
    June Cecilia - very pretty, I would choose this maybe
    June Valentina
    June Dorothea
    June Acadia
    June Acacia
    June Magnolia

    The first two off your list-- Rose Eleanor and June Frances.

    I love June! I think she's so pretty, stately and a little sassy at the same time.

    Thanks so much for the suggestions!

    Right now, I'm liking Rose Eleanor and June Frances & Rose Catherine and June Elizabeth.

    Are Rose and June too theme-y for siblings?

    Rose and June are great names for siblings. Not too matchy for me, and yet there is a warm summery feeling in both of them.

    Rose is my favorite name, and I love it paired with Elizabeth, Victoria, and Julia/Juliette. I'm not a fan of June, however (I only think of June Cleaver), but I do love Jane!

    Interesting pair as I'd say Rose and June are the two middle-names-of-the-moment. They do certainly make a compatible pair.

    I have to agree with Jill. June and Rose are cute, but Jane and Rose are magical :)

    I love Rose and Jane way more than Rose and June. Jane seems more A-list just like Rose.
