What about Rosemary and Violet? Then you have Rose and Letty as nicknames with plant names as full names?

In Response to Guess The Sibling

Oh wow--wouldn't have expected that. I almost threw Orion in there, but didn't.

In Response to Same Name Twice

I know sisters: Isabella and Elizabeth (their mom didn't know, just wanted two "queen" names)
Brothers: John and Ian. Same thing--didn't know.

I don't know any with same first and middle though off the top of my head. 

I went to high school with a Michael Mikhail Michaelson. He went by Mike. They did it completely on purpose. It was bizarre to me even in 5th grade.

Yeah, that always kind of bugs me.

In Response to Guess The Sibling

Well, Caroline and Charlotte both come from Charles, so I would eliminate Caroline just because of that.

So a couple of names popped in my head. One is Mickey, which could also be used as a nn for Michael which would give him a solid name to fall back on later in life.

Mitchell is another variant of Michael that would work. Most of the others are in other language that may not work well in the US (assuming you are here).

Veronica can also be Vera or Nica and not Ronni. :-)

In Response to 3 Baby Bears!

I hesitated to respond in the first place, but came back to just do one plea of, "Nooooo!" just in case.

Fascinating. Thank you, Miriam!

These don't seem like longer names to me despite the first two's 3 syllables. 

Of these, I adore Linnea. :-) 

July 22, 2014 03:51 PM

What about Margaret and Mary?

Polly and Meg or Molly and Daisy?
