Hi, we are expecting twins and at this stage do not know what we are having. They appear to be fraternal so we know that there is the possibility of all combinations.We have decided on names for boy/boy twins and have some rough ideas for girl/girl twins.Our problem is that the girl's name we would like to use for boy/girl twins doesn't really flow well with our chosen boy's name- Edison Brave, nor does it go well with our chosen middle name for our little girl- Judith (after my late grandmother). I feel that our little girl should have a word name to match her brother's middle name. We would also like it to be decidedly feminine, to contrast her brother's masculine name.Some of the names we have thrown around: Willow, Petal, Jahlia (not too sure I like the alliteration of this), Pearl, Indira, Lively, Zadie.Suggestions most welcome!
