Parent gives identical twins near-identical names
The comments suggested it is quite common for parents to give twins similar-sounding names.
LONDON (Web Desk) - A substitute teacher will have likely had to make an extra effort to differentiate identical twins in their class after they learned the sisters share similar names. Taken aback, the teacher took to the internet.
For many twins, sharing related monikers may be a beautiful sign of their close relationship. Unfortunately, the teacher appeared to disagree, as they slammed the ridiculous choice on Reddit. In the post, the educator revealed they teach twins named Selene and Selina, before asking: "Anyone else ever come across an equally ridiculous sib set?"
However, the comments suggested it is quite common for parents to give twins similar-sounding names.
One reply read: "My husband went to school with twins named Chris & Christopher." A second said: "My dad knows twins his age named Rick/Ricky and Richard." And someone else revealed: "I went to school with identical twins named Kelly and Kellen."
While it was not clear if all responders liked the names they shared, several did debate the merits of similar monikers.
