Twin Baby Names

When deciding on twin baby names there are many creative strategies parents use to help them in choosing the perfect names. Things like anagrams, themes, style among others.

On the other hand many others will just pick two names at random with no agenda of matching them up or using other tactics, they pick them out just because they love the names individually.

Choosing a special name for each baby is exciting and you're so lucky, most people only get to choose one and you have the awesome job of picking out two.

Of course naming two can also be difficult, I mean choosing two first and middle names can be a big task. Especially when deciding together you could say it's double the decisions and double the disagreements.

Naming Our Girls

When my husband and I were tossing names around we actually decided on Emma straight away, I have always liked that name. Chloe came in time, sometimes just forgetting about it for a while helped, that way we could start afresh. Also, as many of us know, we get stuck on a few names that just don't feel right but we cant get them out of our head.

I think the worst part of choosing a name for anyone is the fact that your friends and family will have an opinion about it, and not always good. They try to convince you to name them something completely different or something you had never considered. Like with my son, Tyler, a couple of people turned their noses up at it and said "Tyler, hmmm... How about Taylor". We liked Tyler and stuck with that.

The funny thing is once your babies are born and have been named its basically who they are and after a while people don't have much thought on the name it self but rather the person they are.

How to Decide....

Who Gets Which Name With Same Gender Twins?

If you have picked out the perfect names and you’re having identical twins or same sex fraternal multiples, how do you come to the decision of who gets which name? Here are a few tips on how to decide:

  • You could wait until they are born and see who suits each name best. You may even change your mind on the original names you have chosen, which happens a lot.
  • Maybe your first born will have a particular name while the youngest has the other. This could be decided alphabetically or by family names.
  • My husband and I decided on names before our girls were born and even named each while still in my belly. Twin A was always going to be Emma and Twin B Chloe. Referring to them by name while pregnant “Chloes' cuddling up to Emma...” made it feel very real, even our son would refer to the girls by name. After their arrival both Emma and Chloe suited their names, maybe due to the fact we had been talking about each using their chosen names.
