So.. In the other thread I sort of got slammed for suggesting May and June as twin girls names. Wow - what a sensitive topic! Profuse apologies! I was half kidding anyways original.gif -I don't think I would really do that. The chances of me having twins are very remote.


So, it got me thinking.. what the machiest or themed twin / multiple names that you've heard on actual sibets?


For me, my mom has a set of cousins named Leopold and Leona. My friend's mom's name is Connie, sister to Bonnie.
So.. hit me!

I met a set of twin boys in the park a couple of years ago:  Edward and Edmund.  It took all my self-control not to blurt out "what the heck were you thinking?  you must really like Eddie"

It might seem cute when they are babies, but maybe not so much as they grow up?

Sibset, not twins, of Rose, Violet, and I can't remember if the third was Iris or Lily because the other one was also related but like a cousin or something.

I DO think its okay to name your kid a flower name if the closest one is their cousin, I'm just saying that's why I can't remember which.

Yes!

Almost every set of twins I knew were either:

Scott and Simon
or
Rachel and Rebecca


Mum had a lovely photo from a Nursing Mothers Magazine in the early 70's - twins Matthew and Mark sitting there with two other babies, Luke and John! (it wasn't a set up apparently)

More flower names but not for twins. My grandfather was the youngest of 11 children. The girls in the family were named Violet, Daphne, Daisy and Rose.

Clare L, where did you meet Rogan and Josh?  I knew brothers with those names in NZ!

My brother and sister (twins) are Kathryn and Craig, so while not the same letter, they do start with the same sound, but I think they go well together.

I know someone whose sons (not twins) are Tyson and Tyler.
