How will you choose names for your twins? There are many options available and sometimes it can get a little overwhelming. If you like the idea of coordinated or matching names but don't want them to rhyme, consider names that start with the same letter.

This is a really nice approach because it gives your little duo some similarity but maintains a distinction between the names. It provides an opportunity for consistency, but still allows plenty of individuality and uniqueness.

Your Twins' Middle Names

If you're choosing names that start with the same letter, consider giving each twin a more distinct middle name. This ensures that your twins don't have the exact same initials.

While matching monograms might be convenient for towels or decorative clothing, it can get confusing later in life. In some circumstances, such as dealing with school registrations, medical information, or other systems that rely on name data, there can be mix-ups when the names are indistinguishable. This is especially true given the fact that twins usually have the same birthdate.
