How will you choose names for your twins? If coordinated or matching names are your preference, one way to create a unique combination of names for twins is to choose names that start with the same initial letter. This gives a similarity, but still maintains a distinction between the names. Many parents prefer this coordinated approach to naming their twins, rather than outright rhyming names. It provides an opportunity for consistency, but still allows plenty of individuality and uniqueness.

Consider Your Twins' Middle Names for Initials

If choosing names that start with the same letter, consider giving each twin a more distinct middle name so 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. 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, especially given that twins (usually) have the same birthdate.
