While our minds are racing with doubles – Abbott and Costello, Thelma and Louise – the time may be right to consider twinship. In case you don’t know, there’s a trend afoot to concoct cute and compatible names for twins – like Polly and Holly, or Aiden and Diane.
Sure, rhymes or anagrams are sweet. Or maybe a trip to the Gospels will give you Luke and Matthew – but what about some pairings with a more cryptic connection? Like Oscar and Emmy, or Dawn and Aurora, or these:
Steele and Nicholas (Nick)
Olivia and Wanda (beheaded nations)
Hugo and Amelie
Ash and Craig (cigar)
Get the game? Sift the census for haywire overlaps, using wordplay or theme, and let’s have some gemini hijinks while our double-Storm plays out.
