I'm currently 34 weeks with twins which at our 20 and 26 week scan were told were both girls.  We have our two girls names sorted, but now I'm thinking we should have a couple of boys names chosen just in case we get a suprise at the birth.

Any suggestions? Middle names would probably be William and possibly David, DS 1 is Lachlan Michael, and DS 2 is Oliver Matthew.  If we have one girl she would be Emily Anne.

Thanks for your help.

With your boys names i like Thomas & Samuel....maybe Harry as well.

Good luck!!

Presuming you're not going to have another child and thus keeping your girl's name in reserve, then how about Emmett William and Andrew David?

I very much liked the suggestion of Emmett William if its not necessary to keep Emily in reserve.

Other ideas:
Henry William
Daniel William
Jesse William
Isaac William
Jonathan William
August William
Zachary William


Benjamin David
Patrick David
Nathan David
Alexander David
William David or Liam David? (or can they not be used as firsts?)
Callum David
Tobin David
Corbin David

Loving all the suggestions, top contenders so far are Elliott and Thomas.  I really like Samuel, Zachary and Lucas as well, but all have been vetoed by DH.  His only other suggestion has been Daniel, but I'm not sure I like it.
