Tips on choosing twin names:

  • Whose who? Come up with a method on how you will assign each twin their name. It could be as simple as saying the first twin to arrive will take Liam and the second, Lucas. Or you might want to wait and see who looks more like a certain name.
  • Traditional or modern? When it comes to settling on two names, think about how they work together. A mix of a traditional name like Margaret with a more modern name like Kylie doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. So consider pairing names that come from similar time periods.
  • Do they flow? It's all very well having Sebastian and Savannah's names written down on paper, but when it comes to shouting out their names to grab their attention, you could find yourself running out of breath. Practice saying the names out loud together a few times to see if they work and aren't a bit for a mouthful.
  • Can they be shortened? If you do decide on longer names for your two, then it's always good to think about potential nicknames for everyday use.
  • Do you like the names individually? It's good to select two names that work together as a perfect pair but don't settle on one because it just fits with the other and vice versa. They'll be situations in life where you'll be with just one twin - so you want to make sure that your happy with their names individually too.
  • Matchy Matchy? Whilst it's all well and good to pair similar names together, examples like Eliza and Elizabeth, Harry and Harrison or Emma and Emily can cause quite the deal of confusion in the real world.
