Hello! My husband and I are expecting boy/girl twins in August, but they will most likely arrive in July. We currently have a son named Benjamin and a daughter named Rosalie. Ben and Rosie. We love both of their names and it was a no-brainer to use them. We have a list of names we like for these babies, but none are really jumping out at us. My husband is Hispanic and our last name sounds like Tablecloths, with emphasis on the T, B and S at the end. We don't want any cutesy, rhyming twin names. But we want them to compliment each other and our other kid‘s names. Here’s our list:
Cecelia (nn - Celi, pronounced see-lee)
Rafael (nn - Rafe)
Names that have been vetoed:
Thoughts and any other suggestions would be much appreciated!
My favorite boy name from your list is Isaac: it's most similar in both style and popularity to Benjamin. From your girl name list, I think I'd remove Violet because of the flower theme with Rosalie; then, of the three remaining, I think I like Lucy best with Isaac and with the two first children's nicknames---but Cecilia best with Rosalie. Ben, Rosie, Lucy, Isaac---or Benjamin, Rosalie, Cecilia, Isaac.
Would you like all four children to have nicknames? If you used Lucille or Luciana or Lucienne, it would go well with Rosalie AND have the cute nickname Lucy; and Isaac could be nicknamed Zac or Ike.

I especially like Charles and Amalia with the nicknames Charlie and Molly: Benjamin, Rosalie, Charlies, and Amalia; Ben, Rosie, Charlie, and Molly. But perhaps the ending of Charles is awkward with the surname, in which case I like the sound of Jonathan/Jon: I like the subtle repeated O sound in Jon and Molly.
Or Joshua and Annabel, nicknames Josh and Annie: Benjamin, Rosalie, Joshua, and Annabel; Ben, Rosie, Josh, and Annie. But I wonder if the "bel" sound in Annabel is too repetitive with the surname. If so, I'd go with Annika instead.
Or Nicholas and Penelope, nicknames Nick and Nell: Benjamin, Rosalie, Nicholas, and Penelope; Ben, Rosie, Nick, and Nell. But again: maybe the ending of Nicholas isn't great with the surname AND maybe the -ell sound in Nell is too repetitive with it!
