We’re talking about twins, y’all!
Heads up, I have a twin brother.
Look how ridiculously adorable we are!
You know what would have taken away a level of adorable? — Awkward names. And let me tell you, it was a close call for my brother and me. Suggestions ranged from Pete and Re-Pete, Michael and Melissa, to Luke and Leia. Yes. Luke. And. Leia.
People have always chuckled when I mentioned that was a possibility — and I did too! But, for two brand-new beings in this world, luck just wasn’t their’s.
The only thing more unfortunate than their names, perhaps, is this headline: “The Force Is With These Twins Named ‘Luke and Leia’ Who Were Born on Star Wars Day”

Now this got me thinking about other ridiculous names people have given twins… so I scoured the internet and found a bunch to share with you. Feel free to procrastinate on whatever you’re doing and give these a look-see.
Sam and Ella (in that order)
Triplets called Faith, Hope, and… Kevin

Catherine and Katherine
