You've finally settled into the excitement of receiving the big news you're having twins, and now you're tasked with picking the perfect names for your two new bundles.
On the surface, it doesn't seem that difficult. However, when it comes down to it, picking twin names is downright frustrating. You want your babies to each have a sweet name that stands the test of time, celebrates their individuality, but still complements their twin sibling's moniker — without seeming cheesy.
This mission becomes even more complicated when you're having boy-girl twins.
We know you've already got plenty on your plate right now, which is why we've done our best to make the name-picking process easy for you. From boy and girl twin baby name combos that begin with the same letter to other twin sets that just have a nice ring to them, these are our favorite "two of a kind" picks.

Many parents like naming boy/girl twins with names beginning with the same letter, like Faith and Finn or Mia and Max. Check out our advanced baby name search to narrow down your list by searching for names by starting letter. You can also stick with the same theme, such as traditional names, or a specific origin, such as French names. Other parents feel like they want their children to stand out as individuals and give them names totally unrelated.
