What would you name twins if...?

What would you name twins if...

a. They had to have the same initials (e.g., C.M. and C.M.)?

b. They had to have reverse initials (e.g., C.M. and M.C.)?

c. Their names ended in the same sound?

d. Their names had to have the same number of syllables?

e. Their names had to come from the same foreign country/language?

f. Their names had to have similar meanings?

g. Their names both had to be from the same work of literature?

h. They were both given first and middle names after family members?

i. They were both given variations of your name or your partner's name?

j. One had your intials; the other had your partner's intials? (If you don't have a boyfriend/fiance/husband/crush, then use your father's initials.)

k. They both had nature names?

l. They both had place names?

Feel free to use the genders you'd prefer, or give twin names for each gender combination (girl/girl, boy/boy, boy/girl). And feel free to add in middle names, even if they are not called for.

Now out of all those names you came up with, which combination is your absolute favorite?

Update:

Laoise -- Since Alicia comes from Alice, you actually have all the old Germanic "adal" names to work with -- like Adele, Adelie, Adeline, Adelaide, Ada, etc.

Update 2:

a. Same initials:

Clara Josephine and Cecelia Joy

Archer Bennett and August Byron

Callum Arthur and Clara Anneliese

b. Reverse initials

Clara Evangeline and Eleanor Catherine

Julius Arthur and Alasdair Jude

Eleanor Joy and Julius Edward

c. Same ending

Susannah and Judah

d. Same number of syllables

f. Similar meanings:

Frederick and Kenton ("ruler" and "royal")

Asher and Leta ("happy" and "glad")

g. Same work of literature (Northanger Abbey):

Eleanor and Frederick

Update 3:

h. Family names:

Eliza Joy and Susanna Ruth

Frederick William and Arthur Benjamin

Clara Joy and Frederick Bennett

i. Variations of mine and husband's names (Emily Joy and Brian Daniel):

Amelia Josephine and Daniela Briallen

Joseph Emile and Daniel Byron

j. Our initials:

k. Nature names:

    Now out of all those names you came up with, which combination is your absolute favorite?

    d, same syllables is my fave set, but I also really love the shakespearean pairings from the same literature set. And lastly, I'm quite pleased with the set using my husband's and my initials. Not something I'd ever thought about doing before, but I think there is some potential there. The variations of our names is definitely my least fave. Mostly because Rick doesn't have that many variations, and neither does Alicia....other than variant spellings. And, they don't cross genders very well.
