I have some suggestions but I also have a game you and your husband could play!
We liked Wesley and Warren for boys, Stone and Mason, Hunter and Gunner. We had a lot of fun!! We also liked Mason and McKay. In the end we settled on the names with could both agree on. McKay and Brandon (i got my Mason on #4 baby). We also were kinda lucky in having grandfathers that had matching names, Jay and Euray, so we used those as middle names.

Here is how the game works. You and your husband write down your top 10 or 20 names, in seperate rooms. When your done, start by each taking turns reading the names, example ( mom- #1 Bryan, Dad- #1 Chad...When you have matching names, even if like its #6 for mom but #14 for Dad have that be one of the names. Its fun and you might be surprised on how many names your going to agree on.

My twin boys names are Tanna and Ashby but I know of other couples who have Kaden, Jack, William, Joel, Jett, Kade and if you are still confused look in different books and find some names that you can arrange to suit you.

My twin 19 y/o sons are VERY different people, in fact I don't ever refer to them as "the twins", and sometimes forget to mention my sons are twins to newly met people. While they will have a connection to one another that non-twins will never be able to fully appreciate, they are individuals. I am glad that I didn't try to name them in some kind of twin way, it's hard enough for others to not lump them together as if they are one person. Rhyming or sound alike names would have only made that worse.

I named my twin boys Alex and Aden. I wanted the first initials to be the same. Their middles names are after their father and grandfather. My husband really wanted to name one of them Elliot and the other Elijah.

I like have twins: 1 girl and 1 boy. My 1st choice for my son's name was Landon but my husband liked the name Cade. We got our names from a book of baby names. You may want to look through one of those books. good luck

I have 3 little boys, my #1 thing with naming my children is noway can a kid come up with a name for them with their name or initals. Also each of my children are named after family members in some way. My daughter is named after 2 sisters, my great-grandmother and her sister (my mom was named after her great-aunt), my boys are somehow named after a grandfather or great-grandfather.
Hallie Thomas (daughter), Collin James are my twins
Dylan Murphy and William Michael.....

My favorite boys name are Collin, Gavin, Dylan, Liam (Irish for William hubby wouldn't go for it), Oscar... Find a boys name that sounds strong. Good luck

start writing a list of names that you like, ones you might think of or names you hear as you go through your day as the list grows you will find you gravitate to some more than others. Don't feel you have to have similar names just because they're twins, they are still going to be two seperate people with thier own personalities! Also don't feel pressured to have the names ready for birth, I think you sometimes find that once they are born you'll feel which names are right x

We had Jacob Taylor picked out for a boy when we found out it would be two boys, we decided to come up with a T.J name to go with the J.T. We named the other one Timothy James. Good luck to you and your twins!

I named mine Jacob and Alex, not similiar names , so they have individuality, I do not dress them alike either, I did as infants, they are 4 now ,

I think we chose the coolest names ever for our boys. Not trendy, nor cutesy... Henry and Graham!

Do consider that if you use the same sound for the beginning of each name, your children may grow up thinking you are a stutterer. We stayed away from rhyming/similar names for our boys Ian and Henry. They were going to be Henry and Aaron, but then one day DH said, "Cool! We'll have Hank Aaron!" Couldn't do that to them. I agree, it was so much easier to pick girl names.

Sometimes a sound that is similar in the middle of the names is nice, like one letter that is in the middle of each name, or the same vowel, or the same number of syllables.

Quintin and Bradley
Keegan and Kyle
Dylan and Jayden (by the way Jayden is rated one of the top names at the moment)
Christopher and James

I have boy and girl twins and their names are Brayleigh and Braxton but if they were going to boys I would have named them Braxton and Brandon. Hope you find something you like.

My girls names don't rhyme at all....(Sarina and Alize)
A lot of families like to give their twins names with the first letter the same. Options there are endless, but a couple that I'm fond of are Caden and Caleb.
I like unique names too so Weston and Aiden are a couple more of my favorites.
Keep us posted! Let us know what you decide!

I'm with you Stacey Grace, it's too confussing to name twins after the same letter or rhyming. I had girls but I had Tamus and Will picked out if they were going to be boys.. Good luck

we went with the A and B names.......they were 3 months premature and all their stuff in the NICU was labeled baby A and Baby B. We finally agreed on Adam and Brett.

I ended up using family a mix of family and friends names for my twin boys. Alex Tyler and Johnathan Daniel. I don't get their names mixed up as easy as if they rhymed or started with the same letter.

I have always loved the name Joshua so when I was pregnant and they thought it was a boy I was going to name him either Joshua Daniel (which are stong bible names) or Joshua Landon. I also like the names Riley, Seth, Waylon.

Dont put so much thought into it their really not going to care if their names match. We gave our twins the only names we agreed on (sean and rebecca). They will adapt to any name you give them. Good Luck

We struggled with their first names but came up with names that we liked; Alex and Andy. We did use our father's middle names for the boy's middle names. I suggest picking names that you like and not worry about whether they match. So far they haven't complained about their names and they are 14.

It depends on what you want just b/c they are twins doesn't mean they have to have rhyming names, they can just be names. Pick family names, after father, father in laws, people that you admire. Remember it is a name you will use often for the rest of your life!! Make sure you write it and make sure it flows with the last name!!

[deleted account]

First, you have to decide if you are going to name them after someone in the family. You can use their middle names to honor someone & not really name them after that person.



Decide if you want rhyming names or similar names, or names that just start with the same letter.

Bryan and Ryan -

Blaine and Blair -



Or if you want to go with something more traditional.

Richard & Robert.



You could also use names that are the masculine version of the little girl names. If you liked them, the masculine version may work for you.



There are also, as I am sure you already know, many web sites. Search twin boy names. Who knows, one of them might have the right combination.
