Aiden Alexander is a lovely name and sounds great together and also with Emma

I would personally avoid E names to stop them being too matchy but I know some people go for that

Figured I would update this thread with what I actually went with...and the result is Aiden!

My reasoning:

I really liked Emmett, but felt that was far too matchy with Emma. Emrick was dropped for the same reason and also because it is a much more unused name making it a poor match with the popularity of Emma. I wouldn't want him singled out as more special because of the rarity of his name or oppositely more strange because the name is rather esoteric.

I wasn't surprised Ethan was popular as it is the most common name paired with Emma among B/G twins. I have to admit, that sort of turned me off of it. While I'm using really popular names, I still want them to be individuals and giving them charting names is one thing, but charting twin names is another.

Ian was...meh. And clearly the polls agree with me. It's a nice enough name, but I felt it needed something more.

To be honest, Jayden was a last minute throw-in. My last name is hard to work with and names with the "ee" sound and "n" ending go really well with it (which is probably why Ian even made the list).

Aiden was always on my short list, but I was hesitant to have the same starting letter for his first and middle name. In the end, though, it was the name I liked best, so I chose that one.

Hope that clears up any lingering curiosity.
