Naming Your Twins

Naming a baby can be a difficult task in itself, but naming twins can be even more challenging!

There are many choices to make when it comes to naming twins.  Do you want the names to sound alike, or to not sound alike at all?  Do you want the names to rhyme?  How will you decide what name to give what baby? Do you want the names to start with the same letter?

If you are feeling overwhelmed, don’t worry!  Here are some tips to keep in mind when naming your twins.

1. Same Letter
You can use the same letter for the beginning of both baby’s names, for example you could use the letter “M” and name your children “Max” and “Matthew.”  This works if your twins are of either the same sex or different sex, for example for a boy and a girl you could use the letter “C” and name them “Cameron” and “Candice.”

2. Same Sound Endings
You can make the twin’s names have a the same sound, for example “Erik” and “Derrick,” or “Jessica” and “Julia.”  This keeps the children’s names similar without making them sound too much alike.

3. Anagrams
Anagrams are made when you switch up the letters of one name to make another, for example, “Mya” and “Amy.”

4. Themed Names
You can name your twins after a “theme,” for example, if you went traveling and really loved India and Jordon, you could name your twins “India” and “Jordon,” or,  you could name your children after something more simple like flowers, for example “Daisy” and Rose,” or after cities, “Brooklyn” and “London.”

5. Names That Are Different
You can decide to name your twins names that have nothing to do with each other as well.  This may be the right choice for you if you do not want to worry about confusing your twins, or if you believe that giving your twins different names could help them feel more distinguished and special.
