Minerva's Breakdown 

Advice for those on the verge


Dear Minerva,

My partner and I are currently expecting double trouble. We are over-the-moon excited, but here is the problem: We can't seem to agree on names and they can be born at any moment. We don't know the gender of our little ones. If you were to pick two boy and two girl names what would they be?


—The Name Game

Dear Name Game,

I am certain that by the time I came across this question in my queue of "Minerva's Breakdown" topics and questions, your new babies had already made their grand debut. Let me extend a huge congratulations to you and your family on their arrival and I wish you all the happiness in the world. Now for the fun! Names are a special way to pass along something of yourself to your children, besides DNA. Whether they grow to appreciate that or not, only time will tell. So you have asked me what I would name your sweet little babies if I was to choose. Here are my choices and, for fun, I am going to mix it up a bit.

Boy twins: Gable and Cash

Fraternal twins of different genders: Porter and Dolly

Girl twins: Minerva and Jayne

All kidding aside, what I might also suggest is being understanding if your children end up disliking their names as they get older. Names are very personal and sometimes as we change and grow, our given names no longer fit who we are. Happy naming!
