Silly question about names

For those who had same sex multiples....did you sort of "preassign" one name to Twin A and one to Twin B, or did you wait until after and decide which one would have which name?

Of course, wait and see seems the obvious choice, then decide who gets what name, but in my head I keep calling twin A Vivian, because that is the only name we agree on so far.  And I keep thinking twin B is nameless.  I know this sounds ridiculous but I keep thinking about it, haha.

Re: Silly question about names

  • We already had them assigned. Since they're identical "waiting to see" which name fit which didn't really make much sense for us. I also liked referring to them by name in utero rather than by letter.

  • We did the same thing, we named Baby A our original name, and then gave Baby B the second name we came up with. :)

  • We never assigned a name.  The reason was because the first born HAD to be named John (family tradition- my DH is the 9th John and my son is now the 10th but they do all have different middle names)- and it was possible that the original Baby B

  • We waited to see them to name our girls. Hubby wanted baby A to the A name we ended up naming baby B with the A name which was our original girl name but there names fit them so well I am glad we waited. Now our boy was set no matter what.

  • We do the same thing! We know a baby will be named Jace and figured that it was the first (and only) name we agree on whoever comes out first will get that name. Who knows, baby B could swap places with A and come out first and we would never know.

  • We had the opposite situation. DH and I had already agreed on Noah for a boy's name before we found out we were having twins. Then, for some reason, I always thought of Baby B as Noah so we actually had to work a little harder naming Baby A. Then one day

  • We assigned names because of their personalities. One was much more active so we named him Drake and the other Bentley as he seemed more calm and reserved.

  • We did, but then it got super confusing because Baby A became Baby B after my emergency csection, since they had to get Baby B out first, so they could yank Baby A out of the birth canal...as she was attempting her first of many dramatic escapes!

    We decided ahead of time that names for A & B (both boy and girls names as we didn't know). They never changed positions so they got the name we originally gave them and we would have switched the names had they switched positions!
  • I had my 3 names chosen ahead of time, but waited until I could hold them and meet them to decide who was who almost 12 hours!

  • Thanks for all the replies...I am so glad to see I am not sitting around overthinking this!  Hopefully one of these days we can agree on the second name:)
