Tips for Choosing Twin Names

There are many different strategies for choosing the best twin names. To help you out, we’ve included a few tips based on popular twin baby-naming methods: types of twins (fraternal or identical), matching names, rhyming names, and waiting to meet your little ones.

Types of Twins

To start, consider what type of twins you’re having: two girls, two boys, or a boy-girl pair. Do you know the babies' sex yet? Once you know, it might be a little easier to narrow down your choices. Our list includes options for each type of twin pairing.

Matching or Rhyming Names

When having twins, it’s tempting to go with matching first letters or rhyming baby names, like Josh and John or Bailey and Hailey. These are excellent options, and many parents love the matching letters and sounds for twin names! Just keep in mind that sometimes, matching twin names can be difficult for you or your kiddos later on in life. For example, Madeline and Adeline are perfect matching twin names for girls, but they sound very similar. Imagine calling for Madeline, and Adeline shows up! If you use matching names, you might want to find a pair that still has a bit of differentiation, such as Lillian and Gillian or Cole and Joel. On another note, you might want to use different first letters to give your twins a sense of individuality. For example, though Josh and John are also excellent choices, you could try Tom and John to give your babies their own initial letters while still having a similar sound.

Getting to Know Your Twins

Another option for naming your baby twins is to get to know them first. Some parents prefer this method regardless of how many babies they’re having. You could pick out a few options and wait to meet your little duo before assigning names. Or you could go with gender-neutral options that you love and assign accordingly.

The Bottom Line

Choosing a baby name isn’t the easiest task, especially with so many wonderful options out there! So, if you’re trying to pick two baby names for your twins, you might not know where to start. We hope our list of unique, popular, cute, old-fashioned, famous, and rhyming twin names for girls and boys lends inspiration and helps you discover the perfect pair. Before you know it, your little ones will arrive and the adventure will begin!
