Twin girls, looking for a name.

We just found out a little less than two weeks ago that we are expecting twin girls, and we are totally shocked.. lol. We had started working on a girl's name already so we have a name for one so far, and a middle name for the second. We just need help with a first name.

A little background: My family has a tradition for two middle names, so we were originally looking for two middle names with the first name that we liked. When we found out we were having two we decided to go with just one middle name for each because the idea of coming up with a name plus TWO middle names for TWO children at once seemed a little overwhelming.

So, the first girl is going to be Evelyn Mae. Mae is for my grandmother. The middle name for the second baby is going to be Iris for DH's grandmother. DS is Caleb Michael Allen. "E" names are out because we don't want the matching first initial for both of the girls. "J" names are out because our last name starts with a "J" and both DH and BIL have the matching first and last initial and we agreed that we don't like that either. We're on the fence with "C" names. We'll consider it if we really like it, but would prefer to find one we love that has it's own first initial.

SO, please help us!

So far it's:

Caleb Michael Allen *last name*
Evelyn Mae *last name*
______________ Iris *last name*

Thank you!

I'd love to suggest Alice, but it doesn't really work with Iris as a mn at all. But how about...

Hi there.

Evelyn Mae is awfully pretty. You sure have nice granmda names to work with! Would you consider doing Evelyn Iris if you found a name that you love w/Evelyn, but not Iris?

Suggestions-

Adele

Adela

Alice Mae

Celia-It's a 'C', but a different kind f 'C' from Caleb.

Hannah

Ivy Mae

June/Junie

Louisa

Mira

Norah Mae

Rosalie

Sylvia

Hope this helps!

Congrats on your twins! Evelyn Mae is beautiful and I love it with Caleb. I'd stick with something equally old fashioned and pretty:

Mary Iris
Celia/Cecilia Iris
Laurel Iris
Adele Iris
Leonore/Leonora Iris
Honora Iris
Helena Iris

I'm exhausted so my brain isn't working full tilt right now, I'm sure I have more in there! Good luck on your twins! We find out next week what ours are!

Someone suggested Lydia Iris, and I think that's a fantastic combo.
