A long time ago I posted here asking for help naming my main character and her twin sister. Well, that story never went anywhere and recently I've decided to try again at writing a story about twins. I have always had an intrest in names and was just looking around at baby name sites for fun and found twins named things like Michael and Michelle or Paul and Pauline or Nicholas and Nicole. I got to thinking, How must these kids feel? I mean, I've known a few twins and they seem to hate being called "the twins" and being lumped together in everything simply because they're twins. So, I decided to write a story about twin girls whose parents can't seem to think of them as two individuals, but rather as a set. Now, I've always had a problem with getting hung up on names, but this time it's even more important because I want to get the right combination that shows how the parents try to make them too similar, but is not so close that it becomes confusing. So, looking at my list, are there ones that aren't similar enough for my story? Or are there ones that are too similar that they will confuze readers? And let me know if you can think of other good ones. Here's my list: -Madison and Madeline -Kailey and Hailey -Hannah and Brianna -Sarah and Cara -Alexandra and Alexa (or Alexandra and Alexis) -Melanie and Melina -Alyssa and Alicia Note: these twins will be born in the early-mid '90s, so I'm looking for names that would be used then (being a teenager myself, every name on my list I know at least one person around my age with that name). Thanks!
