I think you should go with your gut;) I like the uncommon names, so if I had to pick, I would say Amirah (Ameerah) and Zaira (Zara). I put how I'd pronounce them in parentheses. Good Luck:)

I think Kayleigh & Raylene are beautiful :o) I named my girls Abagayle & Izabella...my husband decided that we wouldnt' use the traditional spelling...they poor things will just like me and never find anything with their names on them...LOL But they will be unique...that is the line my mom gave me ...she turned Charity into Chairettie....:o) Good luck

I know this one isn't on there but I thought it sounded good: Madysin and Madalyn.

I think my favourite two names on your list are Keira and Norah - are we allowed to mix and match? :) Of course I am biased as my one of my twins is Kiera (the other is Sophia).



I've never liked the whole matching names thing - though I didn't realize we kind of did that by giving them both names that end in "a" - totally unintentional - they were just the favourites of all our choices.



We also inadvertently gave one of our girls the most popular name of the year......didn't know until after.....sigh....as a Jennifer, I can definitely feel her pain in future years, when she's in a class with 6 other Sophias, but it's too late now! :)



I think it's best to just go with the two names you like best, leaving out how they "sound together". My girls are only three and already asserting that they want to be seen as their own person, not "the twins". I'd think that all twins, especially ones of the same gender who look alike, are already going to have problems being seen by others as individuals, so saddling them with cutesy twinny-names is just another hurdle they will be forced to get over.

my vote is keira & Kalina...my boys are Cian & Cadyn the same 1st initial of there daddy's name (Christopher)....people always struggle with the names & spell them wrong but being a twin people get them mixed up all the time! best wishes xx

I like Norah and Cragen. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but in the case of Hannah and Halina, Hannah is really common and Halina is more unique. Hannah might end up upset one day that everyone has the same name and her sister has something so different and all her own. Madysin is the same, very common.

i read when i was pregnant not to make the names sound too similar to avoid confusion so i guess my vote would be.........norah and cragen or madysin and kalina............................btw my girls are isabella and brianna........

Honestly, I don't particularly care for any of these name combinations -- I think they are a little to contrived and hard to say together. I think Cragen and Raylene are both awful names for a little girl. The spelling on Madysin makes me think of Dyson vacuum cleaners. I guarantee teachers are going to pronounce it "Mah-Dysin" instead of Madison because that's how it's spelled phonetically. I'm not a fan of pairing top 10 names with less common names (e.g., Madison, Kayleigh, and Hannah are all extremely popular; the rest are not). Not trying to be harsh -- they are your kids -- but you are asking for people's opinions. My recommendation would be of Norah and Amirah or Amirah and Keira. They are both unique yet not way out of the mainstream and easy to pronounce.

I like Hannah & Kalina, 2 names that sound similar can be confusing to the children. Mine are called : Cara & Mia (= my dear, in Italian), but also loved : Amy & May

I like Kayleigh and Raylene! People confuse twins names enough and making them different letters makes it easier for some people. I am twin and people confused me and my sister for years and we dont even look like twins our names are amy and lisa. I had twins and named them coral and acacia and it so fits them. You will know when you have them or right before you have them.. I changed acacia the night before I had her. so you will know . Hope this helps and good luck!

Hi - I like Madysin and Amirah , different initials and different sounding helps with the individuality. I have a Paige and Imogen - Best of luck with your pregnancy!

I like Madysin and Kalina. Just think about the shortened version though because people always give nicknames. My girls are Eliana and Emma. Luckily people can't shorten them too much but they have tried giving Eliana the Eli change...didn't work. Good luck! ;)

Norah and Cragen is my vote!

My girls names are Layla (the oldest -17 months)

Twins (Kristina and Jessalynn)-they are identical so I didn't want to give them rhyming names since they will look alike anyway.

I did that so backwards it J,K,L-Corny but Cute!

I like Keira and Kalina, and Kayleigh and Raylene... My girls names are Hannah and Hailey, and while I love them, its been somewhat confusing for others that I named them both H names, for whatever reason, even though they're not identical, people confuse the names... Oh well lol Good luck!
