Chapter 2: The Most Popular Names for Twins (2014)

For many prospective parents, this chapter is a logical place to start - with the most popular names for twins in the United States. Ironically, readers like this chapter for two very different reasons: some love the idea of giving their children popular and trendy names, while others hate the concept - and immediately dismiss all top names from consideration.

Regardless of your own inclination, it's fun to explore the current trends in names on a national basis, if only to know what other parents consider trendy and desirable. This chapter also shows you the types of combinations that parents prefer, which may (or may not) influence your thinking. As you read and consider each name, you can use this information to add (or subtract) various possibilities from your list.

Finally, a word about "popular" names in a nation as large and diverse as the United States: different names are popular in different regions, depending upon the cultural, spiritual and socioeconomic backgrounds of their residents. In an area with many Asian families, for example, names such as Ling and Ming will be more popular than those in other communities. Likewise, in regions that are predominantly Christian, Biblical names will be more popular than those in communities that are spiritually diverse.

On a practical basis, this information may not affect you (or the choices that you make). But it does explain why the variation among children's names is so broad in different parts of the country. In some cities, there will be five Isaiahs in every classroom, but no one named Jose or Carmen. In other places, there will be several Lings, but no one named Cynthia or Kristen. Ultimately, the names in this chapter are the most popular in the US on average, which may (or may not) reflect the demographics in your own community.
