Twins!

Twin boys are about to be born in our extended family.  The parents have revealed the initials and have opened up a guessing contest.  The first name initials are 'R' and 'H'.  I've thought of quite a few R name possibilities that I think may be according to their taste, but I'm having trouble with the 'H'.  I'm just wondering what thoughts I might find on here for some ideas to go with:  Rex, Rowan, River, Rene, Rhys.  I have no idea if one of these will be the pick, but should they choose one of these, what 'H' name would fit the same style?  Thanks for your input!

Maybe Hendrix? Henning? Hyacinth? Hero? Hugh or Hugo?

Hugh was one I thought of!  I was also wondering about Henry/Hank, but they have commented that they don't think anyone will guess them, so I feel like that rules out Henry.  Thanks for the ideas!

FWIW Hero is a feminine name. It's rare that people give a feminine name to a boy.

As a follow up question, if Hugo was the 'H' pick, what would be a fit for the 'R' name?  not necessarily from my list of names.

I would pair Hugh with Rhys, but don't quite know what to do with Hugo.

Have they given any hints about the lengths of the names?

No they haven't, but last name is commonly mispronounced with lots of consonants.  The two girl names mentioned before knowing were both one-syllable names.

Ross & Reed come to mind.  I think Ross seems more likely though since they said it wouldn't be easy to guess.  I think Reed/Reid is popular enough to be a more obvious choice.

How fusty do you think they'd be willing to go?  There is also Ralph or perhaps Rafe.
