My favorite is Abigail & Isabelle!
Amelia is a beautiful choice and I agree with others that “an M somewhere in the name” is a great compromise. I think it sounds lovely with your other daughters’ names.
Emmett is a great name but I can understand your concern with sister Charlotte. If you are happy using Maxwell or another M name as a middle for a boy, what are you and your husband’s favorite boy names? Theo? Theo Maxwell? Sounds good to my ears.
I love Alice!!!
Elsie is adorable!
I am in the U.S. so have no idea about Aussie names but some of my favorites that might be in your style -
I am a big fan of honor names and although a I do not have twins, I have three children and have them all middle names that honor family.
So, my advice would be that if you are going to give one daughter an honor name that you also give the other twin an honor name too. Just to be fair.
I also like the idea of putting Phoebe/Pheobe in the middle spot.
I love the idea a short & sweet, international and for your girls. Ben reads that way to me as it is popular in America but also Biblical/Hebrew. Someone will correct me on that i am sure. I just know that the Biblical Benjamin was a brother of Joseph.
Claire Adeline (for Adam)
I love it! My husband was just telling me about the first “king” I guess of England who successfully fought back the invading Vikings. So if they want to go Way Back, his name was Alfred (nn Al, Fred, Freddy, or Fritz).
We are such a helpful crew!
Do you like Andrew? Similar in style to Matthew and also Biblical, but with different nicknames. Do you like Andy and Drew better than Matt/Matty?
Andrew was in our top 3 but I did not like how it sounded with our last name.
I agree with many of the suggestions of previous posters. We have similar styles so I always vote for my girls' classic names.
Alice & Mary
Alice & Laura
Also, I know of a family with four daughters with one of them named Alice, so I'll give you their choices.
Alice & Elsa
Alice & Syliva
Alice & Vivian
Also, I love:Alice & Violet
Alice & Julia
Alice & Ruth
Although I am not a bit fan of matching initals for twins, I happen to love:
Alice & Annalise
Best wishes and congrats!
Both Alyssa & Ariana are lovely! For something unique, you could do Aria as a stand alone name or a nickname.
I like Beth as a one-syllable middle honoring Elizabeth
Ariana Beth or
I second the recommendation of Catherine or Claire. I also love Celeste.
Honoring Mary: Molly, Maria, Marie
Honoring Elizabeth: Beth, Bette, Eliza
Nature : Rose, Ivy, Lily
My favorites: Lauren Lily, Lauren Eliza, Rachel Maria,
Gretchen Ivy, Molly Rose, Rachel Beth,
What happened to Owen?
How about Owen Tristan?
I agree with a previous poster that a family connection to your side would be great with this son since Miller got his dad’s name.
OT names for boys:
Micah, Isaiah, Isaac, Benjamin, Joseph, Jonah, Nathan, David, Caleb
Scotch/Irish (I think) - Owen, Evan, Ian
if I were having a boy, his name would be Luke Timothy.
Greta is lovely! And you have a great short list of middle names. I like
Greta Elizabeth or
Greta Rose or
Greta Faith - a subtle theme of virtue names for the 2 sisters
I like Bennett Charles best. I would avoid the B.S. initials.
Favorites for girls: Annalise, Susannah, Rachel, Julia, Mary
Favorites for boys: Erik, Luke, Timothy, Caleb, Nathan
Anna & Sophia
I think it is a lovely name and not a "mom" name. The only Alyssa I know is 14. I like the "y" spelling. If you both love it, then use it! I cannot think of any pop culture references.
I was thinking that Princess Charlotte probably got double credit for honoring Prince Charles and Duchess Kate'a mother Carole. I doubt there will be a Princess Caroline.
I am hoping for Mary or Alice for a princess and David for a prince.
Great choices! And congrats on 3 boys.
I echo the same concern about Gabriel & Samuel sharing an "el" ending with Nathaniel.
Of your other choices, my favorites are Jonas, Gideon & Julian.
Other choices with the classical/Biblical vibe that i love:
Timothy, Isaac, Isaiah
