A reader named Nate just sent me this note:
We just had a set of twins arrive about 2 months early. They are doing well in the NICU, but needless to say, we weren’t quite prepared for the arrival and haven’t got names picked out.
We need both a boy and girl name. We have a 2 year old daughter named Parker Rose. We like the different but familiar feel of Parker and don’t have a strong preference for or aversion to unisex names for girls. Current names on our lists – Boy: Heath, Everett, Tristan, Beckett; Girl: Piper, Kendall, Ansley, Charlotte, Sloan.
Any more ideas along those lines? (Last name starts with “J”)
I’m so glad the twins are doing well. I hope that continues!
Of the names on the shortlist right now, I might cross off Piper and Ansley. Piper because it’s so close to Parker, Ansley because I feel like a lot of people would mispronounce it.
Personally, my favorites are Charlotte for the baby girl and either Heath or Everett for the baby boy.
I thought the following names might be of interest as well:
(I didn’t try to sort by gender because so many of these go both ways nowadays.)
Which of the names above do you like best for the twins? What other names would you suggest to Nate?
