My wife wants us to do matching names for our twins – but I refuse because I think they’ll be bullied for it

My wife wants us to do matching names for our twins – but I refuse because I think they’ll be bullied for it


ONE of the most stressful things about welcoming a child into the world – aside from pushing them out, of course – is picking a name.

This dad is facing an issue as his wife wants to name their unborn twins matching names but he knows it's bad news.

Taking to Reddit, where he could remain anonymous, the 33-year-old dad opened up to others about his current fight with his wife.

He said: "I am a future parent to two twin boys. My wife and I have recently been deciding names for our twins and my wife wants them to be matching.

"I said I don’t like the idea, I have a twin sister who I matched everything with and it got so annoying to me."

His wife clapped back at him and told him she thinks it's cute when twins have matching names, but "I told her for the sake of our kids lets not do the matching name thing and only make them match on things they BOTH want.

He then explained that his wife and his mother-in-law are pushing for matching names, but he and his sisters are against them.

When he asked if he was wrong for putting his foot down, many took to the comment section to express he wasn't.

One person wrote: "It might be cute but your twins are still individuals too.

"It amazes me how many twin parents seem to lose sight of this (I have twins, their names don’t match and neither do their clothes unless they want them to).

"Time to remind your wife your twins are individuals just like you and your sister are."

A second one chimed in and said: "I have twin friends with matching names, they both look the same too and they hate each other's names. Everyone could guess the reason."

And a third commented: "My sister and I have extremely similar names and we aren't even twins.

"It's annoying as hell because our parents can't even get it right and it's been a decade and a half since we were born."

Who should give in in this situation? The twin dad with experience or the mom carrying the actual twins?
