    siblings and twins

    Hi guys! I need some help here. I have 2 kids, Owen Kai (boy) and Audrey Margot (after actress Audrey Hepburn and British ballerina Margot Fonteyn). i'm having twin girls in June and I need help seeing which names go well together and go with Owen and Audrey. These are some my husband and I like:

    Adelaide
    Adeline
    Anastasia
    Angelina
    Antonia
    Ariadne
    Ava
    Bridget
    Claire
    Eva
    Felicity
    Flora
    Ida
    Isabelle
    Jane
    Louisa
    Lucy
    Lydia
    Madeleine
    Marina
    Matilda
    Natalia
    Phoebe
    Regina
    Tatiana
    Thea

    By the way, our last name starts with a D, is three syllables, and ends in son. Could you give me some advice?

    Eva
    Felicity
    Flora - super love
    Ida - very stylish in Europe, I am told.
    Isabelle - too popular
    Jane - super love
    Louisa - classic
    Lucy -in my top 3 or 4
    Lydia - personally, it's not my fave, but it is a classic name.
    Madeleine - very popular, but not in the top 10. I really love it and nn Maddie.
    Marina - I always think of the toilet paper brand, sorry. It is a very nice name though.
    Matilda - great name, great nns Mattie and Tilda and Tillie. One of my favorites.
    Natalia - I really love this one.
    Phoebe - also really love
    Regina - one of my good friends is named this nn Regi. Very, very cute!
    Tatiana - so pretty, nn Tati (TOTT-ee)

    Owen, Audrey, Emmeline and Isabelle is my vote! All vowels and very smart sounding names!

    Second choice is Flora and Phoebe (cute for twins)
    Proud mama to Lucia Marie (3) and Halle Regina born July 12th!

    I think that Phoebe and Lydia would make a good pair.

    Re: siblings and twins

    Hi there! Owen and Audrey are perfect together! :-)

    Adelaide: Addie and Audrey are too similar, although Adelaide is lovely.
    Adeline: See above...
    Anastasia: I do like Anastasia, but for me, it doesn't work with Audrey and Owen
    Angelina: Not a fan of Angelina...
    Antonia: Not a fan of Antonia...
    Ariadne: Too close to Audrey, but it's lovely!
    Ava: Painfully popular...
    Bridget: I do like Bridget, but not as much as some of the other names on your list
    Claire: Claire would be lovely, as would Clara
    Eva: A nice alternative to Ava...
    Felicity: Such a pretty name...
    Flora: Flora is beginning to grow on me...
    Ida: I'm not fan of Ida...What about Isla?
    Isabelle: A beautiful, but far too popular name...
    Jane: LOVE Jane!
    Louisa: LOVE
    Lucy: LOVE
    Lydia: LOVE
    Madeleine: Lovely, but very popular
    Marina: Marina is pretty, but it just doesn't do anything for me
    Matilda: Darlinlg!
    Natalia: Natalie would flow with your children's names, but not Natalia
    Phoebe: DARLING!
    Regina: Definitely not a Regina fan :-(
    Tatiana: Too exotic with the other names
    Thea: Cute nickname for Theodora
    Emmeline: Emmeline is one of my favorites!

    From your list, my favorites are:
    Emmeline and and Felicity
    Claire/Clara and Felicity
    Louisa and Jane
    Lydia and Claire
    Phoebe and Louisa
    Matilda and Phoebe
    Lucy and Phoebe
    Lucy and Matilda
    Lucy and Jane

    You have so many great names from which to choose! :-)

    Some more ideas:
    Amelia
    Charlotte
    Caroline
    Eve
    Evelyn
    Evangeline
    Georgia
    Genevieve
    Isla
    Iris
    Juliet
    Josephine
    Kate
    Nora
    Rose
    Stella
    Scarlett
    Tess
    Tess
    Willa
    Violet

    In general, I'd just stay away from matchy names (same first letter or sound, etc.).

    Good luck! :-)

    I really like your suggestions of Flora & Phoebe, Flora & Jane, and Lucy & Bridget. Tell me which pair you like best, please. Also, do you know what the flower and gemstone are for the month of June?

    Re: siblings and twins

    Oh what great names!! I love all of these. For me, Flora and Phoebe are a little too close togeather soundwise. I love Flora and Jane by themselves. But with Owen and Audrey, Lucy and Bridget just sound perfect!!

    Owen, Audrey, Lucy and Bridget!

    Wow! Pearl is the gemstone and Rose is the flower of June! Of your above choices, I love Flora and Jane, with Lucy and Bridget in second place. (Flora and Phoebe is too matchy for me, but I love the names!) Lucy and Jane/Phoebe and Jane would be gorgeous, too!

    Lucy Pearl and Bridget Rose
    Flora Pearl and Phoebe Rose

    Best wishes to you!
