two girls and no ideas

My husband and I are having twins, and just found out the sex of both our babies and we're THRILLED to be having two girls.  The problem is we've got zero ideas on what to name them.  Part of the problem is that our two  daughters were adopted as infants but not newborns so they both had birth names.  To make the transition easier we picked names that were similar enough to the names they were already called.  Kay Josephine was named  KaiLeigh(pronounced Kay-lee) and Josephine is my middle name, which is after my great grandmother.  June Louise was Julia and even though I go by JJ 90% of the time my  first name is actually Julie and we didn't want any confusion, mostly for me Embarassed, so we changed her name to June. Louise is after one of my husband's grandmothers. We've come up with a ton of boy's names but no girl's names at all.  We joke that it's because we don't have names to start with.  We do agree that their middle names will be Patricia (my mom) and Kathryn (mother-in-law).  My husband's one suggestion is to use one syllable names so our daughters feel like a unit so to speak.  I'm not sure if I like this idea or not but I do know I'd love suggestions for my two girls.

SUGGESTION Patricia Donner
