B/G twins — The Bump

B/G twins

Long time lurker here. I appreciate your honesty, so now here's my question.

I already have 2 DS Reed and Luke.

we are currently pregnant with twins and found out this week it's B/G.

Here is our narrowed down list. Opinions? 

Girl:
Olivia
Emily
Elizabeth
Caroline
Molly

Boy: 
Noah
Andrew
Nicholas
Maxwell 
Walter

I'm an atheist. Is Noah "too religious"? Luke's middle name is Andrew, should I take it off the list?

Re: B/G twins

  • My vote is Emily and Walter. 

    I think they're all pretty good names though. Is Andrew a family name? If it's not I'd definitely scrap it since it's already used in the middle for another.

    While Noah is a biblical name, I think it's use is common enough now that it wouldn't strike me as a "that family goes to church every Sunday and judges me for saying fuck in the grocery store" name.

  • I really like Emily and Maxwell or Olivia and Noah. I personally would not use a name that another child has for a middle name, and I agree that Noah is pretty common now, so I don't think people will automatically assume it's biblical. :-)

  • I'd go with Maxwell and Caroline 

    ditto about Noah not feeling religious because it's so common.  And I wouldn't use Andrew if it's already a middle name.

  • I like Emily and Maxwell the best. My son is Nicholas so while I love that name I don't think it fits the best with your other sons names. I wouldn't use Andrew again.

  • Molly and Maxwell

  • Caroline and Nicholas

  • Caroline and Walter are my votes.

    Maxwell and Olivia would be my runner up.

    Don't use your other sons middle name as a first name on your other son.

  • I like Caroline and Maxwell best as a twin set. 

    I wouldnt use Andrew if it's your other son's middle name.

  • Molly and Noah.   I don't think Noah is too biblical.   Luke is a biblical name also , I think?

  • Thanks ya'll. I'm glad you don't automatically assume Noah is a biblical reference. @sugarpixxie2 Luke is a biblical name as well,  but I don't think is as such a strong connection. I like older, more classic names. I thought Noah went well with Reed and Luke. All 4 letters, but each have their own sound. I'll scrap Andrew. 

    I like the idea of Maxwell and Molly but I worry it might be too cutesy to have the same first letters in a twin set. 

    Naming one kid is hard, two at the same time brings more 'rules'. I want them to go well together but not be too matchy.

    Personally, I wouldn't go for the same first letter. With Reed and Luke I like Walter (Walt) a lot! I also like Noah and Maxwell. You've already scratched Andrew and Nicholas is a fine name, but NMS. I think your girl list is awesome. Molly is my least favourite name, I find it a bit too nicknamey as a first name. I love Elizabeth because of all the nn options, but Emily, Olivia and Caroline are all great names.

  • I would choose Molly and Noah. I don't think Noah is too religious. I like Maxwell too, but wouldn't use Molly and Maxwell together.

  • Caroline and maxwell!! All your names are solid but these are my favs. Well done!

  • Also, my sister has my older sisters middle name. I like its sweet. It means a lot to them now as adults. And I wouldn't worry about biblical references. We aren't at all religious and have a Silas. Best of luck with the twins!!

  • I like all of the names except for Molly.  I agree that Andrew should probably get the boot (sounds like you did that already) but otherwise it's hard to go wrong here.  I wouldn't pair Noah with Olivia because I personally think it's matchy when the names end in the same way, though I know I'm overly picky with regards to that.  My immediate thought was Noah and Emily to go with Reed and Luke.  But any number of options would easily work.

  • I like all your choices, but Noah and either Molly or Emily works best with your current kid's names, IMO, since they're all short and sweet.

    Yes, take Andrew off the list if you have already used it as a mn for someone else. And I wouldn't use Noah if I already have a Luke-- it leaves Reed out as the only non-biblical name. If it were me, I'd find another solid, one syllable name to go with the other boys names I already had. How about:

    Neil
    Grant
    Knox
    Jude
    Tate
    Laird
    Hugh

    All of your girls names are lovely
