St. Patrick, St. Michael,
I know twins named Patrick and Michael. I also know twins named David and Gregory--after King David, who is associated with the psalms, and Gregory the Great, who is associated with Gregorian chant used to sing the psalms in monasteries. Only the younger twin was named David, not the older one, because King David was the youngest of his brothers, which just goes to show what God has in mind for you doesn't depend on who was born first.
If you want alliterative names, James and John, Paul and Peter. Otherwise, Peter and John go well together. (If you refer to them as Peter and Paul, rather than Paul and Peter, they are going to go through life hearing people ask them what they did with "Mary"....which could happen, anyway.) It does help, though, to have different first initials, so you can mark toys that are identical as far as who is the owner.
I have also heard twins arguing about who had the better saint's name. The names can rhyme or be alliterative or not, but if they have similar "arguing power" or "taunting power", this is a good thing. For instance, don't name one Timothy James (which shortens to the sing-song Tim Jim) and then not pull something like that on the other one.
