Along with two cribs, a duo of car seats and a set of strollers, moms and dads expecting twin girls must pick a pair of names. While you can select any two names you wish for your twin baby girls, many moms and dads prefer to choose a pair of names that, like their new little girls, fit perfectly together.
Ashley and Elysha
Have some fun with letters when naming your baby girls by selecting names that are anagrams of each other. The names Ashley and Elysha, for example, contain the same letters but in different order, giving them a clear connection yet their own distinctive nature.
Lucy and Helen
Consider meaning when naming your baby girls by selecting two names that are derivatives of the same word. The names Lucy and Helen, for example, both mean “light,” making them great names for the new lights in your life.
Grace and Hope
Consider what values or attributes you hope your twin girls possess when selecting their names. This practice was popular with many parents in 2009 apparently, as the names Grace and Hope were number 33 on the Social Security Administration’s list of twin name pairs for girls.
Abby and Gaby
Select a pair of names that is pleasing to the ears by picking a set of rhyming names for your twin girls. The names Abby and Gaby, for example, roll off the tongue easily together. In addition to these two monikers pairing well, the nicknames for both, Abs and Gabs, make a perfect pair when said together as well.
Ellen and Erin
Select a starting letter to tie your twins’ names together. By doing this, you can tie your twins to each other through name selection without giving them titles that are too perfectly matched. The names Ellen and Erin, for example, contain the same stating letter but also are different enough to give each child’s name a separate and distinct feel.
Isabella and Sophia
Pick a regal-sounding pair of names by naming your twin girls Isabella and Sophia. This name pair choice struck the fancy of many parents-to-be in 2009, as it managed to score the number one spot on the Social Security Administration’s list of twin baby girl names.
London and Paris
Dust off your map when naming your twin girls, and adopt a pair of geographically inspired names, like London and Paris. These names together sat at number 18 on Social Security Administration’s list of most popular names for twin baby girls in 2009, perhaps as a result of globe-trotting parents who wanted to reflect their penchant for travel.
