Brainstorm for twins
Hey guys, remember how I joked about how I hoped my ovaries didn't spit out two eggs to land me with fraternal twins? Well the joke is on us, because they only spit out one...but that one fertilized egg split in two and we are having identical twins (we can tell because they are sharing a placenta on ultrasound). Unfortunately the newer DNA blood test that lets you know the sex at 12 weeks isn‘t recommended for twins so we have to wait until the 20 week ultrasound. I’m feeling a little less fatalistic about the prospect of naming two more boys because in browsing my Oxford dictionary of first names, I came across a few I liked and hadn‘t really considered and Mr.lorelei sort of liked them (!) and agreed to put them on the list (Anders, Rhys, and it turns out he doesn’t hate Emrys as I assumed he would).
So awhile back there was this thread where the OP asked for everyone’s top 5 girl names and a lot of us thought it was silly not to give more criteria for style preferences, but it ended up turning into a really cool brainstorming thread. Because you know, maybe someone on here wouldn’t feel comfortable joining in on a thread about rare Scandinavian names, but has five names he or she loves and one of them might give me an idea that might lead me to plug it into behindthename’s family tree, or something.
So that being said, what are your five favorite girl names at present, as well as your five favorite boy names? (if you really want to know my style you can click on my user name and see the list but I really just want to know YOUR top 5).
