NAMING YOUR TWINS: How To Choose The Best Names For Twins The Modern Way.

Are you a parent of twins or are you a twin yourself? How did you choose the names for your twins? What were your considerations when deciding on the names to give to your twins? We shall be digesting these questions and also try hard to find solutions to these questions as we read along. All you need to do is to spend a few minutes and read this article to the end.

Twins are two children born at the same time by the same mother. These children may be of mixed genders, thus a boy and a girl or same gender. By nature, some twins are very identical and difficult to distinguish between them.

On the other hand, however, some twins do not look alike or have any form of resemblance which also makes it quite difficult for them to be identified as such unless you are told. One other unique and interesting thing about twins is how they are named. In this article, we shall look at some key factors to consider when naming twins.

 The moment twins are delivered, the next thought that comes to the minds of their parents is the name to give them which would match or rhyme and have similar meanings. Well, if they happen to be two boys, their parents have to choose two matching male names for them like James and Jake. 

 The same way if they are two girls, two matching female names such as Sonia and Sophia can be considered. This sounds interesting and special. But then what appears to be the simplest way out in this situation is when the twins are of mixed genders. Meaning one boy and one girl. 

Of all the twins I know who are of different genders, their names have always been completely unique. The names for twins with different gender is always differentiated by gender. The decision to names newborn children is a the prerogative of their parents.

 But even as parents, in choosing names for your twins you have a few things the consider. First of all, names of twins should not be confusing. Names such as Fabian and Dabian can be a perfect name for twins but can also be confusing to some people.

Do remember and also consider the initials for their full names. Sonia Amachi will have the initial (S.A) just as Sophia Amachi (S.A). You see what it means and the future implications? If we consider Fabian Bansa and Dabian Bansa, these two names will have the initial F.B and D.B respectively.

In as much as you would want your twins to have a unique name, and probably give clear indications about their status as twins, you can not neglect the impact of these names would have on them. The name you give to your children is a life time and possibly a generational identity. Watch the video below and get more insight into some baby names for your twin children. 

In the case of twins, they usually have the same date of birth. The commonest danger that comes with it is when auditing data systems. In the event that twins have names that are too identical and confusing, there may be a suspicion of duplication of data.

In this era of technology and artificial intelligence, biometric systems are being developed and used in data collection and entry activities, especially when it bothers on identity documentations. This can be one key panacea to the identity crisis for twins with identical matching names.

Knowing well all the risks that come with naming twins, we can consider these alternatives as a way of not creating identity problems for our children in future. Obviously, there is always a way out in every situation. And here we have come to provide some possible solutions. 

The choosing of matching or identical names would necessitate a middle name for twins. In order for twins to have distinct initials, having a middle name would be the best option. This middle name must however begin with a different letter. As indicated earlier, Sophia Oketa Amachi and Sonia Ebere Amachi will have S.O.A and S.E.A as their initials respectively.
