I love it when some kids play from the toy box, they take out the toy horse and make car noises "vroom vroom!" *slams on brakes screech*

For some reason, whenever I'm going through a tough time (such as when my cat died a few years ago, or when my mother had a stroke, or my recent kind-of diagnosis) I tend to be nicer to my Sims. If they do something stupid I'm more likely to reload the game rather than let them live with it, and I don't smite them with the batbox for giggles.

I'd be grateful for baby name input, if anyone feels up to it. Twin girls Parents are Alicia Flex (a playable I created as the sister of the premade Max Flexor from Academie Le Tour) and Henrik Lindström (downtownie with one of those pre-set appearances). This is the two of them on a date downtown:

And here's a picture of the twins right after birth


Any suggestions on fitting names? I can't seem to think of any baby names any more, last two babies in born in my game were called "baby girl" and "baby boy" until turning toddlers when I finally gave up and asked my sister to name them

Wait, are the twins two boys, two girls, or one boy and one girl? When that same guy had twins in my game, I named them Dallas and Alexa, because those were the first names that went through my head lol. When I'm stuck, I use a random name generator, like this one, and choose the one I like the most.

I just named twin boys Alex and Xander
Maybe the girls can be Pat and Tricia or Eliza and Beth.

I have an old Baby Names book that I like to flip through because it has some not-so-common names like:
Calantha (lovely flower); Alverdine (counsel from the elves); Mouna (wish or desire); Tzigane (gypsy)

You might try a baby name site to see if something jumps out at you:
https://nameberry.com/girls-names
https://www.babble.com/baby-names/
https://www.babynames.com/

Edited to add:
I like that name generator. I'm going to bookmark that one for later.

So many things to learn; so few brain cells to process the info needed to learn things!

On Nameberry, try out the Namehunter. You can put in names that you like and it'll spit out various ones with the same kind of feel to them.

Accidentally renamed Nervous Subject to Nervous Cameron. So the story so far is that (with the help of the buyable gypsy crystal ball) Nervous got together with elder Jock Neil Cameron. I was thinking of having him die eventually so Nervous becomes a widower. I apparently waited too long with the last name chooser when they finally did get married, thus the name change. Now I'm thinking something additional, like since Nervous wants to forget his past as a test subject, that with his new married name will bring about "Cameron" as a new first name when Neil does die of old age. And then Nervous remarries and gets someone else's last name so he is then finally rid of his old name linked to his past. Not totally sure tho. :P

I have Visitor Controller (how did I ever play without it?) and if I see a fight brewing then I step into Bouncer Mode and ban the offending party. Or parties, if I don't know who started it. On my teen-only lots, Sophie Miguel seemed to be the usual culprit, for some reason.

I never have trouble coming up with baby names. Last time a baby was born, the mother screamed EXACTLY when the lightning went off. I laughed my ass off. So I named the baby after the Latin word for thunder, Tonitrua.

I finally go for the "smite" option. The sim who started the fight got smited.
It seems that, for now Bonneville's inhabitants play kickybag instead of fighing.

The German for thunder is Donner, which is homophonic with Donna (a real name).

Oh, I don't know! Nothing special. What should I do then? :o Maybe she needs to become an evil witch.
She may be the heiress of the family, I don't know yet! I'm playing a kind-of legacy where every generation must have 10 kids, and when there's 5 teenagers, they go to the university, and one of the sims in that first group (the prettiest of course ) becomes the heir/heiress and moves back to the same house. So her future is very unknown atm!

I read "homophobic" I was like WHAT is going on? xD
Oh that would have been a pretty name! But also quite common, so I prefer Tonitrua Although Donna sounds nicer, I admit. Oh well

I've been on a same-first-letter twin naming kick for the last couple of years. It kind of just helps me keep track of who is twins with who: Roderick and Rosaline; Sherya and Shalin; Atticus and Amelia; Franz and Fauna; Andante and Adagio; Pryce and Peirce; Marquez and Mercedes, etc

Before that I used rhyming names, but it gets a bit hard after a few to keep finding Rhyming names unless you want to go with Mary, Gary, Barry, Jerry, Larry, Terri, etc but at that point why waste tha ton twins when you could make them quintuplets? (I don't have that mod, yikes If I did!)

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

I need to break myself of the habit of thinking that once I've started work on the interior of a lot, I can no longer make changes to the exterior. The cafeteria on the terrace of my hospital lot has been bothering me because it's too small for quite a while, and yet it only occurred to me this afternoon that I could expand it.

Still have to see if that approach works the way I want it to from an aesthetic standpoint, but it was really kind of a "hey, duh" moment for me...

Assuming their last name is Lindstrom: For boys, Frederik and Valdemar; for girls, Sofia and Freja.
If their last name is Flex, maybe replace Frederik with Magnus and Freja with Laura or Lorelei.
