Finding a name theme you like can help you narrow down your baby name choice. When naming twin boys, consider picking names that start with the same letter, such as Luke and Landon.

Another cool theme is picking two destination names, such as Austin and Brooklyn or names with the same origin, such as Aidan and Kieran.
