The Top 10 list shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise for anyone following baby names, except that Sophia finally edged out Isabella for the top girl spot, and baby boy name Mason jumped from #12 to #2 (perhaps because of a certain Kardashian baby).
But the Social Security Administration also released the top baby names for twins born in 2011. And although you’ll see a little bit of mixing and matching between the current Top 10 names, there are also some names that standout solely for their twin popularity.
There’s a lot of alliteration, a lot of rhyming, and a couple of jaw droppers. Take a look at the top 10 twin names for girl/girl, boy/girl, and boy/boy twins, which we paired with adorable twin outfits that you can buy for your twins-to-be:
It should be noted that while the most popular baby names (Sophia and Jacob) belonged to around 20,000 babies in 2011 (each), the top names for twins had less than 60 twins per name pair in 2011.
