First time poster in this section... bit nervous!

We are expecting twins and have decided not to find out the sex.

These are the names we have decided on so far... but it's early so there's a chance we may change our minds.

For two girls:  Alice and Evelyn
For two boys: Lewis and Owen
B&G: not sure but leaning towards Alice and Owen.

My questions for the lovely reader of baby names are

1. What do you think of the combos
2. Any suggestions of middle names
3. What do you think is the best B/G combo of the names

Thanks for reading and your advice!

Those names are all fantastic and sound really nice in the combos you have decided upon.

I really really love Alice and Owen. They are my favourite ones of yours for each gender and just wonderful together. Best b/g combo for sure.

I like Lewis a lot, though not as much as Owen. Evelyn drags a bit for me but while to me it suffers in comparison to Alice, it's not really a bad name. I'd probably prefer Eliza/Elspeth/Elizabeth, Emily, or Eve. I have ISSHEWS with -lyn.

Can still make nice combos though.
Alice Jane
Evelyn Mae

Owen Rhys
Lewis Joel

or

Alice Catherine
Evelyn Josephine

Owen Malachy
Lewis Alastair

Love the names. In terms of B/G I would go in with an open mind and choose the name which suits the baby as you have two great names for both sexes.

I much prefer Evelyn and Lewis for a B/G combo, but they are your babies! Good luck, you have some nice names there.
