Twin names that don't match too much

User Rating: / 0
PoorBest 

Naming twins, much like raising twins, is more than twice the work of naming two singletons. Opinions swing between two extremes: either names should match such that they scream "twins!", or twin names shouldn't match more than other siblings'. If you find yourself somewhere in the middle — wanting twin names that match, but not too much — we've got you covered.

Twin names: Character counts!


We love the symmetry of twin names with the same number of letters. You can mix and match favorite styles while maintaining a sweet twin bond. Mismatch the number of syllables to up the level of subtlety.


Twin names with common letters


Starting twin names with the same letter creates a solid pair, but even that is too matchy for some. For a more subtle approach, hide the shared letter somewhere in the middle of the names. Fiona and Sophie share both a short i and long o sound, but the reverse order makes a complementary — not rhyming — pair.


Twin names matched by rank


If you're expecting boy/girl twins, take a look at the Social Security Administration's top baby names. Find your favorite boy or girl name and check out the opposite-sex one that shares its rank. (If you're having twins of the same sex, pick your favorite from one year and look at the same rank for another!) We looked at the results from last year, and you will be amazed how poetic — Haven and River is almost too poetic — some of the matches are.
