We've always joked that if our twins had been boys, we would have named them "Franklin and Frederick" and nicknamed them "Frankie and Freddie." Given our last name (which also begins with the letter F), the combination conjures up a nightmarish image of ruckus-raising, trail-blazing, out-of-control boys. Thankfully, our twins are very much girls, and their names definitely do not begin with F!
I often come across other combinations of names that would be funny, silly, crazy or interesting names for twins. Sometimes they are found in books, movies or music. That led to this article, a collection of "fun" names for twins. Of course, there are plenty of serious resources on my site for parents seeking advice on naming twins; this piece is not meant to be taken seriously. But it is fun to consider different combinations. And you can get in on the fun! Submit your ideas for crazy twin names.
