Bernie Madoff whistleblower Harry M. Markopolos has 6-year-old identical twin boys named Harry Louie and Louie Harry.
The New York Times Magazine asked Markopolos, “Is that some kind of Greek tradition? Giving kids the same name?” He answered:
You saw the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”? Everybody has the same name. Only the people change; the names never do.
What do you think of using the same names (just switching the order) for identical twins? Would you do it?
P.S. Over 75% of those who’ve voted in the poll on twin names prefer twin names that don’t sound similar.
