Twin name themes

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. You can also pick names with the same number of syllables, such as Jax and Jude or Cody and Caden. Another cool theme is picking two destination names, such as Austin and Brooklyn or names with the same origin, such as Aidan and Kieran.

One word of caution: Avoid getting too cutesy with twin boy names, such as Easton and Weston, for example.
