When I last saw the then parents-to-be two weeks ago, they didn't have names or even nicknames for the babies yet. So I suggested a few (nicknames, that is):
- Murano and Burano --- blame this on my being in Venice in July. Hey, we could call them Mu and Bu.
- The Bobbsey Twins --- in honour of some children's novels whose titles we knew of, but never read. Unfortunately a little judicious Googling turned up the fact that the Bobbsey twins were fraternal, while my friend is having identical twins.*
- A and B --- the boring option, which I said out loud in order to compel the parents-to-be to think of better nicknames.
* If they were fraternal twins, I would immediately suggest Huck and Molly, of course.
