Twin Girl Themes

Many parents choose a theme when naming their twin girls. Some popular themes include names that start with the same letter, like Addison & Ally or Harlow & Harper. You can also pick names that rhyme, such as Mia & Nia or Emma & Gemma.

One cool trend among twin girl names is picking two virtue names, such as Faith & Hope or Grace & Justice. Some pictures stick with the same type of name, such as seasonal names (Autumn & Spring) or destination names (Brooklyn & London).

It is interesting to note one set of twin names of the top 50 list has one reversed – Heaven & Neveah.
