12 Twin Names That Are Destined To Start a Sibling Rivalry

I am a big baby name person — my kids have unique names that have some meaning to our life and I love that when I say all their names together, they seem to really jive.

It’s no secret that I am kinda hoping to get pregnant with twins (I’ve always wanted 5 kids, but this next pregnancy will be our last for sure, giving twins my only hope of more) and I have put some thought into what I may name them if that should happen. I don’t really like the whole cutesy-rhyming names, but I would love for them to have a cohesive meaning.

My mind then switched over to what names would not be the best idea, what would put the kids off to a ‘bad’ start if you look at typical name pairings. Some come from silly pop culture, some from bad blood and all are bound to have the kids in a frenemy situation right from the start.

Click through for 12 names that are bound to start your kids off on the wrong foot:


  • Brandon & Dylan 1 of 6
