Ten-name Tuesday: Boy name & girl name for twins

You’re in a crowded costume store, rifling through a bin of plastic masks — zombies, demons, evil clowns, creepy dolls — and chatting with the friendly man next to you. Both of you are doing some last-minute shopping for various Halloween parties coming up. Just as you discover the classic Frankenstein mask that you’ve been looking for, he mentions that he’s also on the hunt for a pair of baby names:

We are 2 dads Casey & James having boy & girl twins. One of us likes unique and the other more traditional.

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name-lover, and you could potentially give him many, many suggestions…but now that you’ve found your mask, you only have time to give him ten baby name suggestions — five for each twin — before you make a dash for the check-out line.

But here’s the fun part: Instead of blurting out the first ten names you come up with (which is what you’d be forced to do in real life) you get to press a magical “pause” button, brainstorm for a bit, and then “unpause” the scenario to offer her the best ten names you can think of.

Some things to keep in mind as you brainstorm:

  • Be independent. Decide on your ten names before looking at anyone else’s ten names.
  • Be sincere. Would you honestly suggest these particular baby names out loud to a stranger in public?
  • Ten names only! All names beyond the first ten in your comment will be either deleted or replaced with nonsense words.
    • DETAILS: Please comment with 5 female names and 5 male names. Either list them in two separate groups or, if you prefer, pair them up (1 male name + 1 female name). Don’t go over 10 names total, though.

Finally, here’s the request again:

We are 2 dads Casey & James having boy & girl twins. One of us likes unique and the other more traditional.

Which ten baby names are you going to suggest?

    Sorry, I could only come up with one pair. Could have done with some more parameters such as preferred letters, sounds, theme?

  2. Simone and Otis
    Bernadette and Arthur
    Lenore and Wallace
    Rhea and Rousseau
    Harriet and Frederick

    Tried to focus on names with a serious/traditional tone, but rarer usage. :)

  4. Before suggesting anything i just want to say i have always liked the idea of twins having names with the same initial letter so here are my suggestions:
    Christiana and Caleb
    London and Liam
    Charlotte and Cody
    Jaxie and Jackson
    Bailey and Brody
