Twinwatch

Perhaps I ought to review a little Bad Baby Names Blog tenet before I launch into this short entry. Let's talk about twin names for a moment. People have this funny notion that twins' names need to match. Ruby and Pearl. Lily and Violet. Dakota and Cheyenne. Thing #1 and Thing #2. As a twin, I'll let you privileged readers in on a little secret: twins come matched. You don't need to match them - they match already! Wasn't that kind of Nature, saving you all the trouble of coming up with matchy names? Just think! Now you can spend that energy coming up with names that will reflect their individuality and separateness, on the off chance that they might grow up as different people! Thanks, Nature!!

Anyway, meet Gabriel and Gabriele.

Only a bit confusing.

On an only slightly better note, meet Kaprice and Koltyn. Correct me if I'm wrong, but does this not sound like the name of a successful exotic dancing act?

My aunts are Cindy and Sharon. Different letters to start with but still sound the same. Sigh.

I know sisters named Sherri and Sara. Say that five times fast. Or Carmen and Camryn. Or Rasheeka, Rochelle, and Rashawn (which I may not be spelling right).

How about Maria and Mariah? They weren't twins, but sisters
