Naming twins can be delightfully confusing. Read on to know the guidelines for choosing perfect baby names for your little munchkins.

Having babies is a blessing and if you have had twins then it calls for a double celebration and congratulations. Now you'll have to plan everything in pairs, even their names. Yes, naming a baby can be quite a daunting task. But when you have to think of naming two kids together, it gets even more difficult to pick the right names. Many people get confused in such cases and just choose any name which comes to their mind without doing much research. To help you avoid this, we've enlisted a few guidelines which will help you keep some important points in mind when naming your little bundles of joy.

Avoid rhyming names

Your little ones are individuals too and even though they were born together, they have their own identities. Even if they look alike, their habits, skills and behaviors may differ. Therefore, when it comes to naming twins, you need to take into account their individual personalities. Avoid rhyming names. Just because they sound similar doesn't necessarily mean they are fit for your babies. Rather, gift your babies unusual names which reflect their individuality. For example, avoid names like Twinkle, Rinkle or Arun, Tarun which have been overdone.

Choose names with similar meaning

You have twins who are connected to each other by birth. So, if you want their names to have a connection forever too then try picking names with the same meanings. Names which have similar meanings is a great way to link the two babies without making it too evident. Try choosing a name with a meaning which symbolizes something important in your and your babies' lives. Then search for another name with a similar meaning. For example, Hriday and Mann: Both mean 'heart'.
