Irish Names for Twin Baby Girls
Hello, I was hoping to get some opinions on my thoughts for picking two Irish names for baby girl twins. I am 32 weeks pregnant, and am starting to feel stressed that I haven't 100% decided. First off, I love Irish names, and have already started the Irish theme with my first 2 children: 4y/o boy Aidan and a 2 y/o girl Brenna. The fact that they start with A and B were coincidence, but now we think we'd like to continue that theme and find "C" and "D" names for the twin girls (or, 2 "C's" because my husband and I start with "D" and "E". Also, I don't want to have to deal with a lot of mispelling/mispronunciation which makes this decision a little harder. For Twin A, we love the name Ciara (correct Irish pronunciation is Kee-ra, not see-ar-a or kee-ar-a), but I know everyone will misprounce it, so we were thinking of alternate spellings like Ceira (also Irish). For Twin B I really love Dara or Dierdre (husband doesn't like Dierdre). So, Ceira and Dara - do they sound to sing songy/ matchy? (Aidan, Brenna, Ceira and Dara) I also love Maeve, but would have to throw away the ABCD idea. If we were to do two C names, I was thinking: Ceira and Caileen or Ceira and Calynn Thanks in advance!
NOTE FROM THE MODS: This old thread was recently revived by a spammer, but it is originally from 2013. It's fine to comment, but keep in mind that the twins in question would be almost ready for kindergarten.
