The name game

Something we said after Max was born, that I hadn’t thought about since, was that we’d better never have any more boys as all the good names are gone. Jacob and Max are obviously the best boys’ names in the world. And we very foolishly used two of the other names on our top five list for their middle names – William and Oliver. What is the point of middle names anyway? I never use mine, they will most likely never use theirs. They seem completely pointless and now we have two fewer choices available for the twins. And we don’t just have to come up with one name, which would have been hard enough, but two. I think we’re going to have a hard time agreeing on anything, so we might just have to stick with Thing 3 and Thing 4 after all.

When you’re having twin boys, you’re inclined to think of the names in pairs – like famous double acts.

Bert & Ernie
Wallace & Gromit
Woody & Buzz
Luke & Han
Rhubarb & Custard
Statler & Waldorf
Stan & Ollie
Derek & Clive
Jake & Elwood
Lou & Andy
Wayne & Garth
Bill & Ted
Chip & Dale
Ren & Stimpy
Fred & Barney
Asterix & Obelix
Nathan & Peter

I don’t suppose any of these will go down too well with the missus. But I might seriously work on her regarding a pair of names whch would result in the nicknames Izzy & Ozzy. How cool would that be? 

Suggestions welcome…
