Two If By C...

The house is getting too small...
  [vote for,

It's a full-scale invasion. Twins expected early next year. That'll bump us from a family of 3 to 5. RayfordSteele Jr. will be 18 months then.

Heaven help us. Did I mention that the house only has 2 bedrooms and is underwater on the mortgage? New accommodations or renovations desperately needed.

Name ideas are also a sticking point thus far...

RayfordSteele, Jul 05 2013


       Congratulations all around.
Custardguts, Jul 05 2013

       Excellent news!

       How about palindromic names? Iain and nial, or anne and enna...
pocmloc, Jul 05 2013

       Twins, what grand news. Yay.
blissmiss, Jul 05 2013

       I suppose "Bun" and "Fishbone" are not options?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 05 2013

       That 'is' good news. Congratulations!   

       You will be BUSY. Congratulations.

       double trouble - congrats...

       Surely you are not overlooking "Remington" and "Bethlehem", especially if the twins are fraternal rather than identical?   

       Similarly, if you'd like to continue on an automotive theme (as with ray-FORD), Dodge, Chrysler, and Buick all make fine names. At least, my German shorthaired pointers all seemed to like them.

       Stainless and Chromium.   

       The greatest thing about twins is that whenever it's *not* your turn to change the baby's diaper, it's your turn to change the other one.   

       From experience: keep a diary. Your brain can't remember it all. (Or won't; it may be a survival thing.)

       There's a gal in the wife's mom's facebook group who named her twins Steele and Sterling.   

       I've just poured over listings of the top 1000 popular names for both sexes, and I worry for the next generation.
RayfordSteele, Jul 06 2013

       //I've just poured over listings of the top 1000 popular names for both sexes, and I worry for the next generation.//   

       Yes - whatever you've poured over the listings will make it difficult for the next generation to read.

       Thank you, m'lud. I very nearly said something regrettable* until you slipped in and defused the situation with your famous dry wit.   

       * or 'typed something regrettable', pedanticularly speaking**   

       ** or pedanticularly typing, if you wish
Alterother, Jul 06 2013

       // your famous dry wit.// Ah yes. One of my former bosses once called me a shining wit. Mind you, he also described himself as a binocular myologist.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 06 2013

       2 buns to help feed the family!! [++]

       Shiny things can be very dry; dry things, however, are almost never shining.
Alterother, Jul 08 2013

       Update: Only 1 if by land. :-( The other invader turned tail and fled.
RayfordSteele, Jul 09 2013

       Mayhap 'twere a signalling error, perhaps a reflection to double the lights in the Old North Church?   

       But if it were real and a loss, my heartfelt condolences and support.
lurch, Jul 09 2013

       Better days to come, Rayford. We all share in your disappointment, but continue to be happy in your blessing.

       Have you considered adoption? If you can get yourself adopted by a wealthy couple, you're set.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 09 2013

       I hear the Buchanans have plenty of space. No signalling error. Baby B was about a week younger than Baby A at one measurement. In such a complicated, buggy product development process, it seems that quality control has their hands full.
RayfordSteele, Jul 11 2013

       Are they identical twins ?
