What would you name this combination of kids?

I recently met a family with quite a few children and I'm amazed they were able to come up with such good names for all of them (I won't post for their privacy) but I thought it might be fun to see what other people would name the same combination of kids..

Boy & Boy Twins -

Oof, and this is what happens when twins run in families, sometimes!  (My mom was pregnant with two sets, herself -- though she lost one set -- her mother, grandmother, & several maternal aunts all had twins.) 

Let's see.


Raymond, Stephen 


Emily, [here is where I run out of boy names my husband and I have actually discussed and start guessing] John


Evelina, Marcella

[here is where I run out of both girl names we have discussed AND any good guesses]

Ethel (or Patricia, or Joanne, or Irene)

December 18, 2013 6:38 PM

Sarah Br0nwyn

Peter J0seph & Alexander James (first three are my own kids)

Stephen Michael

Leah Jessamine & Gabriel John (although in reality I would never name a boy Gabriel after having a Peter)

Daniel Francis

Theresa Caroline & Rachel Louise

Anna Violet

Just thinking about it makes me need to take out my smelling salts. Three sets of twins! Egad. Kudos to the mom.

December 19, 2013 3:02 PM

Ok--taking them one at a time and pretending my husband has *no* say in them or that I have current children and no one in the family has used any of the names:

Girl -- Margaret Ruth nn Maisie

Boy & Boy Twins -- Patrick Alexander and Matthew Zachariah (no nn's)

Boy --  Nathaniel Stephen nn Tate

Girl & Boy Twins -- Katherine Joy nn Katie and Benjamin James nn Jamie

Boy -- William Grant nn Liam

Girl & Girl Twins -- Eleanor Violet nn Nora and Amelia Ivy nn Amy

Girl -- Josephine Arley nn Josie

December 19, 2013 3:06 PM

If you use the names we already have used and plugged them in order and I have to take into account my husband's taste and such, I have:

Girl -- Sophia Grace

Boy & Boy twins -- Sean Michael and Alexander James

Boy -- Jeremiah William

Girl & Boy twins -- Amelia Faith and Nathaniel Stephen

Boy -- Matthew Edward

Girl & Girl twins -- Evangeline Kathryn & Madeleine Jean

Girl -- Anneliese Ruth 

December 26, 2013 4:08 PM

Ok--so if we went forth and had all these kiddos (I'm too old for this!) from this point forward (so adding them to our current family), it might look something like this:

Girl -- Madeleine Jean

Boy & Boy Twins -- Nathaniel Stephen and Matthew Edward

Boy -- Theodore Miles

Girl & Boy Twins -- Anneliese Ruth and Benjamin Patrick

Boy -- Samuel Arthur

Girl & Girl Twins -- Laura Gabrielle and Olivia Elspeth

Girl -- Caroline Violet

Ooohh, love this set! A lot of names that I would possibly use too. :)

January 7, 2014 5:10 PM

Alythia Rhiannon

Crispin Benedict andGavyn Casimir

Sebastian James

Mara Elodie andAdrian Nathaniel

Maximilian Dominic

Helena Eowyn and Philomina Joselyn

Irina Therese

None of them may have a nickname! I refuse to alllow them! Although if Philomena wants to go by Mina, I guess I'm okay with that. Philomina's a mouthful, and Mina's pretty. But the rest...

Most of these come straight from my list of names I eventually want to use. If I had nine months instead of five minutes to figure this out, I'm sure they'd be a little different, but I like these a lot.


January 10, 2014 10:15 PM

Okay, I tried to stay within names that I would actually use. Most of the first names are family names or related to childhood nick names for various family members. Neville Lysander is the closest to being something I wouldn't use, being my fantasy Harry Potter inspired name. I really Like it though, and I love Sander as a nn.

Girl – Kasia Wren

Boy & Boy Twins – Elliot James and Evan Michael

Boy – Johann Grey

Girl & Boy Twins – Lucia Grace and Lucas Noble

Boy – Neville Lysander

Girl & Girl Twins – Josephine Anne and Elizabeth Maeve

Girl – Artemis Sage

Okay, so nobody else has any say in the naming of my imaginary children. All the male middles are family names, except Samuel and Alexander which are variants. 

Hope Cecily

Andrew Noah and Aiden Samuel

Luke Alexander

Clarity Hazel and Joseph Thomas

Matthew Justin

Liberty Julienne (I don't know how anyone else pronounces Julienne, but to me its Julie-EN, en like end without the d) and Ada Cassidy

Emma Catherine


Let's just say I ran out of virtue names I actually like. I love them, but Hope, Clarity and Liberty are the only ones I'd consider naming a kid. Ada and Emma are just favourites. Cecily, Hazel, Julienne and Cassidy and CATHERINE are names I love, but Cecily, Catherine and Cassidy really wouldn't pass the holler test and Hazel and Julienne aren't first names to me.

Andrew, Aiden, Luke, Joseph and Matthew are my favourite boy names, although I guess Aiden is a bit of an outlier because it's not a traditional name. I'm not even religious, I just like the names.

January 25, 2015 7:02 PM

Here's what I'd do (random made up last name and all):


Girl - Marilyn Rose Fisher

Boy & Boy Twins -Alexander "Zane" Jacob Fisher and Gideon Jeremiah Fisher

Boy -Moses Michael Fisher

Girl & Boy Twins - Elizabeth "Bess" Janae Fisher and Kathleen Ysabel Fisher

Boy - Samuel Felix Fisher

Girl & Girl Twins - Lydian Elisa Fisher and  Matilda "Tilda" Quincy Fisher

Girl - Violet "Vi" Lorelei Fisher


Marilyn, Zane, Gideon, Moses, Bess, Kathleen, Samuel, Lydian, Tilda, and Vi (I pronounce Vi as Vee)

October 11, 2014 10:29 AM

Aurelia Rose

Joseph Carlisle and Benjamin Alec

Arlo Anthony

Amelie Belle and Elias Marco

Thatcher James

Piper Alexandra and Isobel Mackenzie

Mia Carleigh


So Aurelia, Joseph, Benjamin, Arlo, Amelie, Elias, Thatcher, Piper, Isobel, and Mia


Aurelia is my favorite girl's name ever and it just has such a nice sound with Rose, as common a middle name as it is.


Joseph and Benjamin are traditional but awesome and they're cool with these stylish middle names Carlisle and Alec.


Arlo is different and nice. It's a great name and I like it, but not one of my top favorites, I just picked it because it sounds so good with Anthony.


Amelie Belle. Just gorgeous, girly, and classic without being boring. Elias is the epitome of cool, I think, especially paired with Marco.


Thatcher is an awesome surname that for some reason hasn't caught on yet. I hope it doesn't. James just sounds nice with it.


Piper is the best. THE BEST. I love it so much, and it's grounded with the regal Alexandra. Isobel is a great twist on the gorgeous but too popular Isabella along with Isabelle and Isabel. I know a lot of people hate Mackenzie, but it's my guilty pleasure name.


And finally Mia. Short, sweet, spunky, and beautiful. I have a penchant for -leigh names, and since I live near a Carleigh Lane, I love this spelling for the middle name.

That's so many kids!! So 5 girls and 5 boys. Hm... They'd need to be fair, and they'd need to be cohesive but I'm not a huge fan of matching names. Sometimes twin names that are somewhat similar.

The first girl would be Katarina, because it's my all-time favorite name and has a lot of personal signifigance. Nickname would be Kat or Katia.

I'd then need to keep to a similar style, so for the twin boys I would probably pick Alasdair and Nathaniel (nn Nate).

Another boy- I really like Cohen but I don't think it works with the other names, so probably Vincent.

Girl/boy twins- I love Thea, but I'm not sure it works so I'd probably choose Thalia. William for the boy.

Yet another boy- I don't think it quite matches but I think Dechlan is the best I could do for a fifth boy.

Girl & Girl twins- I love Guinevere (nn Gwen) but then I need a name to go with that. Sybil for the twin.

Final girl- I've avoided repeating initials so far, so I want to stick to that. It's hard to come up with one that works with the others and doesn't repeat. I would say Alexandria, but it repeats the A. I like Lydia a lot, but I don't love it. Maeve is another name I love, but I don't think it really fits. I think I'd go with Ophelia.

So that gives me Katarina, Alasdair, Nathaniel, Vincent, Thalia, William, Dechlan, Guinevere, Sybil and Ophelia. Holy crap.

That was really fun, though.

February 3, 2015 3:30 PM

Oh wow, now I'm seeing how everyone else did middle names. All have personal significance and many are honor names.

Katarina Isabelle

Alasdair James and Nathaniel Field

Vincent Moskowitz (isn't that a mouthful?)

Thalia Andie and William Benjamin

Dechlan Lowery

Guinevere Samantha and Sybil Carolina

Ophelia Shepard

My last name is 3 syllables and 9 letters. My poor children and their massively long names!

February 16, 2015 10:00 PM

Girl - Lucy Jean

Boy & Boy Twins - Micah James  and Nicholas James

Boy - Damien James 

Girl & Boy Twins - Victoria Nicole and Rowan James

obviously James is a must for our boy middle names so its repetative.
