Hello everyone! This is to be my first post, I was hoping some of you might have some feedback on what we should name our second set of children. Now I say "set" because we are adding a new set of twin boys to our previous set of triplets, which was BBG. We aren't really interested in rhyming names because even though our kiddos may look alike they are all individuals. But we would like that names to flow with each other, not too common like Jack or John, but not so uncommon as Blue Ivy. Any comments, or advice will be greatly appreciated.



Sidenote: Our Triplets are Jasper Gray (Boy), Avery Onyx (Boy), and Sloane Riley (Girl).

When I was pregnant with my twins we wanted to call them Riley and Rowan. All of the books say that this is a no no. I was stressed out because we loved the name Rowan for our boy, and Riley was the only name that we could agree on (I really liked Willa, but my husband wouldn't budge). We did not mean to give them the same letter, it just happened that way.



I had an elderly Aunt who was an identical twin. She was Mary and her sister was Margaret. I decided to ask the expert. I asked if they had minded being Mary and Margaret. She gave me this look like I was a mental case "That was our names." It didn't bother them, they were each individuals, who just happened to look alike and have names that started with "M". That was what I needed, the permission that I needed.



If our twins had not been boy girl, but two boys we were going to name them Rowan Bruce (Bruce for my father) and Ethan Donald (Donald for his father).

If our last daughter had been a boy, we desperately wanted to name her Thaddeus Gabriel

Wow, that's quite the family!

I think Kent is a great name but I couldn't use it because our last name is Clark! Also, Xander is another unique favorite!

Sloane's future boyfriends don't stand a chance!

Don't know how many people are still following this or interested, but we've decided on the names! Partially :) The first and middle name we are certain on is Micah Gage. The second, which is almost nailed down is Oliver Reid. Feedback would be great if you happen to stumble across this thread!

My twin boys are James and Daniel. Probably a bit too common for your taste. I also like the names Cameron and Carson and

I do so love that name! We have considered the name Xander for a long time, it was one of my favorite's to jot down in the teenage diary because I thought it was beautiful and unique. We considered it for one of our first boys, after my husband's father, and just call him Xander for short. But we always got stuck with a name that would go with Alexander, because the name means so much to us, and also it feels strong and powerful to me.



I do like Kent though, too bad about the last name! And I don't even want to envision a boy coming around for my baby girl, my only girl, because after our new boys. We are pretty much done.
