    I know it's still waaaaaaaay too early to go through baby names, but i just love doing it so much haha i know it'll probably still change a 100 times, but i just like looking for cute names. And I like hearing what names other people like and chose :)
    we're having fraternal twins and of course don't know the genders yet.

    What do you think of the name Zola? I was watching Grey's Anatomy today and Meredith & Derek's daughter's name is Zola and before I didn't like it so much, but today i was like wow...that's actually a pretty name!

    And - would you give twins names starting with the same letter or with different letters?

    Dh and i both like Zane for a boy and Zola for a girl...it was a coincidence that both letters started with a Z..would you think that's a weird combination?

    Zander and Zola B/G
    Zack and Zola

    I prefer giving twins names that don't start with the same letter. But that's my personal preference and if you love two Z names, go for it. :thumbup:

    Names on my girls list:
    Myla
    Rowyn / Rowen
    Neave (what this baby will be if it's a girl)
    Mirin
    Seren
    Jade


    Names on my boys list:
    Fallon
    Russell
    Ezra
    Rowan
    Micah

    Zola is nice and unique, as is Zane...However I'm just not a fan of twins with the same letter names, really. They're likely already going to be called the "Smith twins", so why not give them a different letter name? Again, just my opinion.

    If I had twins I would say:

    :pink: :pink:
    Mikaelyn & Neveah
    Lorelei & Eden

    :pink: :blue:
    Mikaelyn & Xavier
    Thomas & Harper

    :blue: :blue:
    Xavier & Elliot
    Logan & Jackson

    I like twins with the same letter or some form of sibset theme.... no idea why people are so against this, its no different to any siblings having the same letter name

    it gets silly when you have stuff like Ashley and Ashlyn as its only one letter difference but whats wrong with say Jack and James or Luke and Logan?

    would you consider little Jack and James as odd if they had been born a year apart?

    I don't really like siblings or children having the same inital either. While not much of an issue as tots it will become a PITA when you have 2 18 year olds with the same name or Dad and son
    Letter for Mr Z Smith, or Phone call oh just checking I have the right Mr Smith, whats your DoB?

    I kind of agree with avoiding the initial thing, it just makes me think of Jack and Jill, Bill and Ben etc lol although its totally up to you.

    I love Zola. I don't really like same letter combinations though, especially as Z is so uncommon. Not a big fan of Zane.

    I like the idea of pairing Zola with a quite traditional name, just because Zola sounds like it's gonna be classic soon, well to me anyway. It's also kind of dramatic, so it'd work well with any sort of Greek/Roman god/goddess names, if that's your thing.

    For girls, Zola and Lana springs to mind!

    I find matchy names about as bad as matching twin outfits lol... not my cup of tea :)
    I would just pick two names I like.

    How about Dane for a boy instead of Zane? I think its much more classic and would go with Zola.

    Lol - If I am ever blessed with twins I would TOTALLY match/coordinate their outfits every single day!! :haha:

    I would just pick two names I love but would make sure they "go together" in some way. I think starting with the same letter is cute, if you love both names and as long as they aren't too similar.

    Like Jayden & Jordan or something so close.

    I don't mind the names beginning with the same letter, in fact I like it.. I don't however like Zola (sorry hun!) first thing that springs to mind is Gorgonzola cheese.. Not good.
    Zara is very sweet though.

    I find out if I'm having twins next Thursday (IVF 2 embryos transferred) and if we are lucky enough to have both embryos still in there I won't be using the same letter names, but ats just a personal preference. I have twin brothers and they have different letter names so maybe that's why I prefer it.
