Okay, so my husband and I are expecting twins and we found out it's two girls. We had ourselves convinced it was a boy and a girl and had only had brief discussions on girl names. Since he shot down my favorite girl name in history, Aurora, with our first daughter he promised I could name the next girl we had if we had one, so one is for sure Aurora. Here's where the area of contention is: I hate "twinny" names, and have fallen in love with the name Dalilah. My husband thinks that because they're twins the other girl should be named Arabell, it's not that I hate that name, I hate that it gets into the "twinny" category, and he admits he really likes the name Dalilah, but really wants the two A names.
How do we figure this out? How do we compromise? How do I get my point across about giving the girls as seperate of identities as possible, where he just wants to play up the twin thing? Gah! Help! Advice, opinions...any feedback! Thanks ladies!
