Just when you thought pregnancy couldn't get any more mind-blowing, you find out that you're having twins! Double the...well, everything. Besides having to own two cribs, buy twice the amount of diapers and learn how to function without both of your arms, now comes the added task of naming two humans at once— talk about pressure. Deciding on baby names for twin girls can be tricky. You don't want them to be so similar that their unique identity is lost in the name, but you probably wan't them to sound close enough that people can tell they're twins (just in case their looks won't do the trick already.) Or maybe you're looking for two names that sound completely different but have similar history or meanings.
Either way, you've come to the right place because these next 11 name combinations are bound to give you some much needed inspiration and maybe even save you some time in your hunt for the perfect pair of names for your little bundles. With everything from classic, to sing-songy, to short and sweet, to gender-neutral, these names are packed with personality, depth, history and originality— there's bound to be the perfect moniker for your twins.
1Evelyn And Eleanor
Two old-timey but beautiful names, Evelyn means wished for a child and Eleanor, though the meaning is unknown, has enough substance and class to spare and would both be great choices for your little ladies.
2Addison And Avery
If you're looking for gender-neutral options, these two quirky names are quickly gaining momentum for baby girls.
3Lacey And Lucy
4Harper And Hadley
Another set of unique names with an antique feel. Harper means one who plays the harp and Hadley means heather field. Despite having slightly obscure meanings, these names would be a great gender-neutral choice.
5Elodie And Ember
6Shyla And Sophie
7Isabella And Olivia
8Ava And Ivy
9Zoe And Mia
10Jade And Joy
These two "J" names have self explanatory meanings and sound just similar enough to bind them together, but not so similar that you can't tell them apart.
11Elizabeth And Emma
Both of these classic names that make appearances in Jane Austen novels would be an adorable throw back to older times with a combination of an antiquated name with a more common one. Elizabeth means pledged to God and Emma means universal.
