nickname my darling feti, PLZ!

Hellllp! I'm busy having the best weekend of my LIFE (we couldn't be happier) but somethings missing and that something is...

...

NICKNAMES FOR THE FETI! Seriously guys, what do I call 'em while there still inside? Snookums and Sugie? Bean and Other Bean? Brandon and Brenda? Hubba and Bubba? Jimmy and Pam? Pumkin and Pumkin?? Does it need to rhyme or is starting with the same letter enough?? Ack! Hard deciding but these cuties need the BEST NICKNAME OF ANY FETI EVER. I keep thinking of one name but then can't think of another that goes with. Sooooo greatful to have e-BFFs to turn to. Winner can be my doola!

J/K :)

How about Phoebe and Phoebo (à la Friends)? Or Sweetheart and Studmuffin?

rachael said...

What about poop and scoop?

Just kidding, TAMN.

TAMN, I was KIDDING.

Please stop crying.

I love you.

Jeanne said...

Dash. Feeti.

Merry said...

Thing 1 and Thing 2 :)

Susan said...

Names of our fetus's have been Squishy, Lumpy, Squirmy. But you need something extra special... how 'bout Shake and Bake?

Candice said...

Punkin and Squash

katie said...

Our babes always start out as Cletus the Fetus.

Skipper said...

Why don't you just call the pair TAMNjelina...a tribute to the ultimate parents (sides you of course!).

b. said...

Since I'm voting for one of each:

Brad and Angelina (beautiful people)
Darryl and Darrell
Maeve and Dave
David and Victoria (in keeping with the beautiful people theme)

Lizzy said...

I like Jimmy and Pam but then your son might grow up and drink and your daughter might be in a wheelchair. Yuck.

How about Donny and Marie?

Queen Elizabeth said...

Bert and Ernie

PenceFam7 said...

How bout Pete and Re-Pete

Pam said...

mork and mindy

Paige said...

How about Tommy and Franni (after our totally cute profet and his wife). Cuz we know your feti are going to be the most richus kids ever.

Marisa said...

Peanut and Lil' Bean.

Annette Lyon said...

Please don't do Hubba and Bubba. "Hubba" is too close to "hubby," and that's like, gross.

TaeLynn said...

Since we all HEART lit couples, why not go with some of ur fAVEs!? Edward and Bella? Darcy and Elizabeth?

...is it awkward that those couples are like, you know, COUPLES though and your teensy feetees are siblings? Um dunno!

Big Rig said...

Definitely Hans and Franz.

Lauren said...

PUNKY and PUNKIN!!!!!
so cute!!!

corinne and paul said...

It's SO obvious TAMNers the nicknames should be Mary-Kate and Ashley. Cutest fashionista twinses EVER

www.jsayreallen.com said...

Laman and Lemuel when they are kicking and Nephi and Sam when they are content.

Kristina P. said...

I think you should take a cue from your own blog, and call them Edward and Bella.

I know that technically, your feti are siblings, and Edward and Bella are lovers, but whatever. Don't sweat the small details.

Charity said...

Adam and Eve. I mean, they are naked in there.

Krissi said...

How about Bestest and bestestest.

Jacque said...

how about Prez and captain!
Cuz, I am assuming it's one of each, so your Girl will be president of whatever class she's in: Beehives, Mia Maids, Laurels, Relief Society, etc.
And your boy will always be captain of every sports team he is on, naturally!
So, Prez and Captain!

Jen said...

I have no idea who you are, but a friend of mine mentioned your blog to me and I have been laughing the entire morning. You are right on with EVERYTHING!! The best is the pieced ears and Bows glued to the babies head. I love the introduction of who you are on the side with law/business/dental/and medical school. Hilarious.

Lara said...

Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Justin said...

Faith and Hope.

Lisa said...

Pride and Prejudice

Admin said...

LeMonGelo and OranGelo... you gotta honor their "always willing to bring the best twist-of-a-dish to the potluck" heritage. Emi

Kamity said...

I've gotta agree... Thing 1 and Thing 2 or Shake and Bake have my vote!!! You totally need to make a poll with the bestest suggestions!!!

Hizzeather said...

Pete & Repete made me laugh!

Bella & Edward - hmmm...too incestous.

How about Rosalie & Jasper? They were siblings (or at least pretended to be). You can say Rose & Jazz for short.

Or there's always Nessie! :D Nessie & Jacob! Gross.

Actually, since you're so spiritual, you should name them Thomas & Spencer, Tom & Spence. Or Dieter and Uchty. :)

Hizzeather said...

Oh! Never mind...I choose Posh & Becks! Oops...incestuous again. Whatever.

Jaymie and Donna Jones said...

Well in my experiance the boys are always a handfull so one (the most active one) should be wild thing, and the girl should be angel, or doll cause you know she is going to be your real life doll! My daughter is for me! But if you don't like that my second vote is for shake and bake!

Amy said...

Whatever you call them, they HAVE to start with the same letter. Not starting with the same letter, when they're twins and all, is just sad.

Natalie said...

How about Peace and Love

*MARY* said...

colon and cod liver oil

ramsam said...

Snuggle and buggle

Paul P said...

Riley & Taylor

Or Riley(squared)

See, since you don't know the gender of the Feeti yet, you want to pick a gender-neutral name.

Do you want to explain to your twin boys which one of them was named "Marie" (or explain to your twin girls which one of them was named "Donny")?

Yeah, I didn't think so. Until the gender is known, you better stick with a gender-neutral term.

Andrew said...

How about "the gummy bears"? 'Cause that's what they kind of look like...

Melanie said...

My grandfather always liked for twin boys--Pete and RePete. And for girls--Kate and DupliKate. Just a thought.

BrookeLynn said...

Spud and Spudette or
Bubby and Bubbette

MJ said...

How about Peter and Molly?

You know, Peter Priesthood and Molly Mormon. After all, your kids already are perfect examples to the rest of us about how we should've been when we were feti.

Carli Webb said...

I like Fetchen and Gretchen! Way Provo and Way cool!

Jenny and boys said...

***Frick and Frack***

Christine said...

This is all so fun, but have you thought about what their REAL names are going to be? I SO like the ones that have lots of ys and Ks, and are pronounced like normal names but spelled WAY different, so totally unique. OR, even better, you could create some COMPLETELY new names so your kids will be as special as they deserve and never have to share their names with anyone! Because really, don't they deserve better than normal names?!? And, as always, the more creative the spelling, the better!

Just a thought!

Alison said...

You could totally channel Breaking Dawn and call them your "little nudgers"

stewbert said...

"Laman and Lemuel when they are kicking and Nephi and Sam when they are content."

Applause.

Emily said...

Denise and Denephew ... It would be so adorable for Red-Flag Ruth and JJWT's Bro to call them that anyway. :)

Lauren said...

Sugar and Spice...

I mean, you have two buns in the oven and I can only imagine that your buns would be made of sugar, spice and everything nice, right?

Karlene said...

Captain and Tenille?

Well, your mom would think it was funny.

Allison Claire said...

Snookie and Snooks! Because they are SO cute like little cookies and cooks that cook cookies and it rymths. AWWWWW!

Sarah W. said...

I always lovingly called mine " my parasites" because they sucked the life out of me... but I'm sure your babes wouldn't do that to you.

Kellie said...

How about Sam and Ella?

tonyajez said...

Blob and Blobette...
Or the Mini-me's cuz we know their going to be perfect little angel babes, just like you TAMN!

Sher said...

Zack & Cody.

or Mork & Mindy, if you want to go old school.

brossettelewis said...

"my little miracle muffins"
"my stripling worriers" cause I seriously think of you when I read about that.

since i voted identical boys (cause really anyone can have fraternal twins and boys are even more rare... learned that in BYU Biology so I know it's true), like mine...

We've been thinking Bo and Luke cause there gunna be hott, Flotsam and Jetsam cause they are amazing little swimmers right now, Sammers (cause it rhymes w/ Tamners) and Nephi the feti.

You can totally use them all!

Daria - Boutique Cafe said...

Obviously you need to name them after your FAVE sweet treat!!

Fro and Yo !!! :)

Should I go and buy some hot scrubs to wear in the delivery room? ROTFL

Accountability Diet Abbs said...

how about -aden? cause you know no matter what you can plug any letter to the front and both your babys names will be made with that same end. think of the possibilities! aidan, jaden, kaden, raden, maden, braden, daden, everyone is doing it. aden is the new ava/jackson

Hayley Hatch said...

How about... HOCUS and POCUS?...Just in time for Halloween!

Tami said...

I love Shake and Bake or Fro and Yo!!! lol

Regan said...

Since you have two buns in the oven you could call them the bunnies. Bunnies are way cute.

SSS said...

How about Dumb and Dumber. You are trying way too hard to be funny.

The Howertons said...

Mani and Pedi of course- after one of your fav things!

Although Fro and Yo - is Awesome!

cheri said...

mickey and minnie?

gotta admit brandon and brenda made me snort.

Sadie said...

Well since you really don't know the exact S-E-X of them yet, maybe gender names is a bit confussing for them. I mean you know what happens to boys named Cody don't you?! (they sometimes end up G-A-Y...shhh...) So maybe something like Zing and Zang or THE HOTTIES IN MY BODY...you've got options.

Nikie said...

How about Abercrombie and Fitch or Anthro and Pologie or Jimmy and Choo?!

The other me said...

Fee and Ty, because that's what/who they are. We must be true to the truth etc.

Amber Gardiner said...

The Twots (for twin hotties)

Hauni said...

Jack and Jill

Valerie said...

I love, love, love the suggestions of gummy bears, twots, and shake n' bake!!

Robyn/Lauren said...

Doesn't "twots" sound a little yucky?
How about "itty" and "bitty."

Heidi Ashworth said...

Hows about Pepsi and Coke?

Laura said...

Thing 1 and Thing 2. Julianne and Derrick (like the hot "hough" bro and sis on dancing with the stars) Short it could be J&D or JD. Beau and Betty (like at Abercrombie and Fitch). Then you can call them BB's, it sounds like "babies", but it will stand for Beau and Betty. That is hot. Ok, this is all I can think of. I am sure you will pick the best nickname out of all your e-bff's. You have such impecable taste. Love ya!

Melanie said...

Salt & Pepper

Peanut butter & Jelly

Peaches & Cream

You know, because they go together so well, just like your twinsies will love each other so much and always get a long. Plus, they'll be SOOOO adorable that you could almost just eat um up! (Not literally, of course!)

{Ashley B} said...

In honor of the parentals how about ASEF & EBBY?
Adam/Shake/Edward/Fro
and
Eve/Bake/Bella/Yo
Hey I think your feti could make those names HOT!

Momza said...

TAMN TAMN TAMN....
I love your fun blog...I've never commented until NOW....I know Utahns are "spilling-word-challenged" so here's a freebie--
it is D-O-U-L-A.
I know, because I are one.
As for names...call them blessings.

Chelle said...

all are very funny, but you totally don't want to freak the old ladies out at church when you refer to them, so I totally think a quick and perfect nick-name for both of them should be "Blessing Squared" or "TAMN Squared". I know JJWT would totally love the latter!

Chelle said...

I meant "My Blessing Squared". Good luck TAMN! Heart you!

Laura said...

Mary Kate and Ashley--IF they're girls. You don't wanna jinx anything while they're still in the womb!

But I also vote for poop and scoop. Cause man, will you be rolling in some poo in a few months!

Jen said...

We called our Nugget. Nuggie for short.

Janelle said...

M&M

Bailey said...

Paris and Nicole...besties forever!

Allison said...

Hugs and Tugs! You know like the so adorable Care Bear babies! SO Cute!

Larissa said...

I'm voting for Tic & Tac... because, HELLO, they're tiny and cute just like the bestest candies EVAH because they're like almost calorie-free.

Amber said...

Fanny May and Bernie Mac.

the moms at babysteals said...

Jelly and Bean!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

My twins think you should call them hip and hop

li'l mil said...

I totally think you should call them Diva and Divo because let's face it...they've got no choice but to be the most glamorous feti EVER.

Porsche said...

I so vote for thing 1 and thing 2!

J-Dub said...

curelom and cummom. exotic to say the least.

Shannon said...

Dot and Dash

Stopher and Nicolle said...

why don't you just start calling them their real names so when they come out you're not confused? seems like nicknaming them something might confuse your precious little self later. you don't wanna be calling them thing1 and thing2 when you're at the grocery store or something...someone would call CPS on your sorry self. you seem like a nice girl, name them something EZ 4 U to remember...and no nicknames!

Amy said...

BIll and Hillary.

No wait, Bill and Monica.

Jamie said...

Because they are such a neat blessing, you should call them Your 2 GIFTS FROM GOD.

If that doesn't work, how about Charly & Sam. Like the best Jack Weyland book ever, I'm sure you read it as a teen and cried over it.

Sad.

Lets just make it Pat and Niki, in case.

Barton Family said...

Jose and Hose-B...

slytrifecta said...

How about aye and bee....that's what they will be called when they are born. Baby A and Baby B.....I was actually fortunate enough to have a baby C.

Whitney R said...

You have almost 100 comments so I didn't read them.

BUT. How about Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy? Or if they are both boys, Raggedy Andy and Raggedy Andrew, or if they are both girls Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Aundra?


Hmmm.... or slop and shloop?

The Scooter Lounge said...

Fritz and Ernst

THE KEDDINGTON CHRONICLES said...

O.K. so the first time I heard "feti", it totally reminded me of fettucine, SO.... I've been thinking that perfect in utero nicknames would be "Alfee" (For alfredo sauce), and "Mari" (For Marinara sauce). Stretch? Maybe!!! Crazy? No more so than this post, so all is well, Plus, I REALLY want to be a doula (really), so pick me!!!!

Jordan said...

The feti are totally going to be total cutie pies, but you don't want them to think they should be tubbos (gross!) while they're still in your righteous womb. You should call them Carrot and Celery, instead. Or Apple like Gwyneth Paltrow's kid.

Jenn Mize said...

We called ours parasite until we knew what we were having, because that is pretty much what they are until that point. So you could call them Para and Site. Just a thought! :)

maggiemoo said...

Ross and Rachel because in the end, no matter what they will always end up BFF's. Or....Sonny and Cher because just saying the name Sonny turns that frowny face upside down.

Andrea said...

Your blog is hahlarious!! Thanks for the laughs. One thing you have overlooked, TAMN, is that as a young mormon mom blogger you HAVE to have a post about the marathon you ran or the sprint you just did. I guess you can't b/c you're preggers. But within 3-4 months of those most perfect feti ever being born you must have a post about your athletic accomplishments.

Token Asian Friend said...

Whipper and Snapper. But, gross, I don't want to be your doula.

Mysticnocturne said...

You could nick-name them 1 and 2 al 'la Grey's Anantomy,

or Snickers and Snookums,

or Tuti and Fruti,

or Sweet & Heart,

or Angel & Baby =)

Mina said...

Well, I'm pritty shure your gonna have one boy and one girl. I have a talent with knowing thees things (espeshally with eBFFs who I've never seen).

So call them Sweetie and Stud, cuz thats what they'll be, right.

If not, I vote for whoever said Peter and Molly, cuz that's so cute and and inside joke for those of us who know the Plan!

Sue said...

I'm out of it: what is a doula? Anyways, love the Shake and bake (that's what they're doin' in there) and Fro and Yo.

Curtis Clan said...

I like pip & pop.
You might not be old enough to remember the "Good" SNL, but "Pat, is it a boy or a girl, it's Pat?" So...1Pat 2Pat. :)

Reggs said...

total no-brainer!
Dolce and Gabbana.

Mishqueen said...

My sis-in-law calls her twin feti Xena and Athena (awesome amazonian warrior/greek goddes names), but you'd have to give her some serious props if you "borrow" her nicknames.

Wendyburd1 said...

How about Frick and Frack?

Oh then's there's Fletsam and Jetsam.

Though I'm partial to Frick and Frack. Catchy!!

Eins (EYE-n-sss) and Zwei (ss-VY) it's one and two in German

Uno and Dos

Misty said...

How about Nephi and Keephi (say keef-eye)
Nephi- because I just know he was totally hot. And, it's gotta rhyme! So, that's where I got Keephi
and, you can say, " Nephi and Keephi my feti" yeah, it all works!

Michael said...

Jot and tittle -- spiritual but cute!

kareninkorea said...

I like Cupcake and Muffin (better than just a regular old bun in the oven--wink,wink)

or

Sugar and Spice

or

Bean and Chickpea

Princess and Buttercup

Brynn said...

ASEF & EBBY are totally and completely PERFECT! Love the idea

Lesa said...

if they are both girls call them the 'twincesses'

The Deckers said...

Our fetus' always start as
"Baby Herman"
So how about Herman & Sherman for yours...?

Julie said...

Tweedledee and Tweedledum!

DKAZ said...

What is wrong with Mary Kate and Ashley? Here are some other quick suggestions.

Carrie and Big, not like I know who they are or ever watched them religiously every week on HBO and re-runs...

Ross and Jen...if you're wanting to keep this fictional.

Justin and Brittany for old times sake

Tom and Lucy's Art Shoppe said...

thing 1 and thing 2

KatrinaMaye said...

Stay away from the couple names. Your fertile wombgarden grows those babys with faith, hope, and love, not akwardness.


I suggest calling them your "Nephi-Lehi-Feti". Riteous AND ryming!

Looking for something less yawn-ish? "Mike and Ike the Feti" fits nicely and is totally not the LEAST bit akwardish.


Good luck, hun!!!

jello said...

Pebbles and Bam Bam (or BAMN BAMN)

Peaches and Herb

Brender and Eddie (they were the popular steadies and the king and the queen of the prom)

Tami said...

Princess: Belle
Stud: Gaston

Juli said...

How about instead of having to say TWO names, you refer to them with one name. After all, isn't that what nick names are for? I'm thinking you should call them the Fetishes. Get it? They're your fetish!

Good luck!!

Matt, Heather and Miley said...

I think Super and Duper because that's what they'll both grow up to be!

clan of the cave hair said...

obviously Amber Gardiner has not been around the block enough times to know that Twot is not a very nice word at all! YIKES!

Rachel said...

OMG (As in 'oh my gosh slash golly' and NOT dog spelled backwards.)My friend told me to check-out your web-site and OMG--she was right, you rock!

p.s...might want to name the feti something seriously cool, because you don't want them to have the same names as everyother kid in school. So, i suggest mixing cool names, like, "Chacoata", or "Taylynn", or "Jordaruth" or "McJayson."

TEAM HATHAWAY said...

I totally think ADAM & EVE are too funny!! I called mine little and bubbles...they were little and they gave me bubbles =0!

Anne said...

How about Do and Rae, because they are your drops of golden sun and make the hills wanna sing?

Token Asian Friend said...

Whipper and Snapper. But, gross, I don't want to be your doula.

Elle Woods said...

Seriously, what is a doula? It's like the only thing on this site I can't figure out, and it's starting to make me wonder if it's something dirty ...

And OMGD, you should nickname the feti Artemis and Apollo, after the twin Greek god and goddess - partly because they're going to be that studly, and partly because they're going to be real gods and goddesses, thanks to the Plan. WTF (what the freak) is with all the peeps suggesting boyfriend/girlfriend nicknames?

Token Asian Friend said...

sorry about the double comment! I must have traveled through some mind-numbing wormhole and ended up in a faraway land with a 23 hour day and accidentally commented twice.

And, I very much want to be your doula!

Diana said...

Luke and Leia

Diana said...

Or Phil and Oprah

K. H. said...

i like "PB" & "J"

SumGreater said...

I think if Fro and Yo don't win, you ought to give "Hottie" and "Bajottie" a shot. I mean, really, no matter the S-E-X, they're gonna be total hottie bajottie's.

I'm torn on the Donnie and Marie thing. You could refer to them collectively as "Osmond." They're gonna be BFF's so I'm sure they won't mind...just like they're forever going to ADORE the identical outfits you'll make them wear.

Aaron and JaLae said...

Ying and Yang.

No...I really like Cletus and Fetus the bestest.

Kyra said...

One day my friend was fed up with the twin questions and someone asked her the names and she told them lemonjello and orangejello. Of course this was done with a french accent and several missed that she just called the babes lemon jello and orange jello. 8 years later some still do not get the joke.

Jacob and Mindy T. said...

I personally like Mork and Mindy. :) LOL

megan said...

How about "Silver" and "Gold?" Your babies are precious and pretty much coolness royalty.

Wendyburd1 said...

Um a doula is NOT a bad word. The bishop's wife is one. They help you during the birthing process,kinda like a mid-wife but different.

kristimaria said...

for sure, you need to call them princesses/cuties/pumkins if you think they're girlies. (You are soon in tune you'll probably have a dream/vision tonight to find out the sexes) Or for boys studs/captain studs/JJWT studs.

Or name then after you! Tamnetties, or JJWT stud juniors!

Sarah said...

Luke and Laura
Mutt and Jeff
Batman and Robyn
Superman and Wonder Woman
Fetus and Fetyou
Ron and Hermione
Fred and George
Harry and Ron
Hermione and Ginny
Harry and Ginny
Chuck and Larry
Barbie and Skipper
Barbie and Ken

The possibilities are endless!

lara said...

Um, Bella and Edward, Duh!

Jessica said...

Kicker and Puncher

Sanpeters said...

Donny & Marie defanantly!

Loomi-Loom said...

I'd go fer He-bean and She-bean, so as not to get confused with real people that might not be good roll-models, according to the Plan, I mean. Gotta stand at all times...except when you're getting a pedi.
Oh, and I can't be you're doula cause I'm a guy and that wouldn't fit in the Plan.

Kim and Arnie Graff said...

Lets stay true to our BYU-ness and stick with the acronyms- T-HAC (totally hot and cute) and S-GLIS (so good looking it's sick)

pdholgreen said...

PHINEAS and FERB

pocketposies said...

Gumby and Pokey

Also luvin' Frick and Frack....

But in the end you'll have to trust your own spirtchal inspiration, cuz I'm not supposed to receive revelation for you... well, at least I'm not supposed to tell you about it when I do.

Wendyburd1 said...

SEE!! The people LOVE my Frick and Frack idea!!

Sean and Janet said...

I like Bill and Ted.

Noelle said...

derek and julianne.

you know, like the houghs! bc they are the perfect siblings, blond, have big white teeth, and julianne is especially sassy slash modest but not slutty. plus they can dance, obv, and are like world famous mormons now and are pretty much the new barbie and ken. also, i heard shannon elizabeth is taking the discussions. whew!

Em said...

SQUASH & BISCUIT - it's what they call tea and cookies over in the good old Motherland (Britain) and in reference to the feti I think it's kinda precious. Let me know if I need to practice my doola skills!

Spirit Woman said...

Thing One and Thing Two.

Hailey said...

chuck and norris, pink and floyd, awesome and possum, cow and pie, bay and toven, this and that, this and that, you have many options. i leave wisdom with you from my miamade heart.

how about stew and pid? costa and vida, tar and zan, i could go on for hours. . . you and two!

Lindy said...

Archie and Betty.. and thats totally clean cause- lets be honest. Archie will never end up with Betty cos her cents of steel will never be quite up ta par like Veronicas. Plus veronica gets him really nice things and has cuter parents than poor ole betty. (No worries- you are way to hot to be worried about being betty's not so hot parents)

Rachel Cunningham said...

Maya and Miguel.

Please tell me your husband speaks spanish so your twins can be bilingual by the age of 2. And make sure he speaks Espanol to the babies in public to make all the stateside RM's jealous.

KJ said...

peas and carrots. Gucci and Prada. piggly and wiggly.

Jailbird said...

PB & J or u may want 2 save that 1 for your triplets.


I have a dirty shank about babies - but of course none of *those* circumstances would apply to you since you know who the dad is and everything.

michellejohnnie said...

I think the names should be "no name" and "who cares".

Tif said...

The obvious choice: Branjelina
