A honest question but what would you do if something like that happened? Would you go to court and get there names switched? You can't just leave it the way it is because of social security and things like that. Right? That's just all sorts of messed up. Fyl OP, I don't think you deserved that but you should of paid closer attention. Reminds me of spongebob who lost his identity.

what's the difference?

I'm a twin, and we are identical but there is still a big difference between us. Not just personality, bit we don't look exactly the same. If I was called the wrong name for eight years I'd be pissed!

yeah but how would they match a birth certificate to a person? like both twins are the same and both birth certificates are the same.. how would anyone know the difference.

Reply

170, yes and a social security number is just a series of numbers, can I have yours? You can't break things down like that because a name is also your identity, it has meaning and value behind it. Money is just metal and paper but we put value into it. Houses are just wood, bricks, and other raw materials, yet we spend lots of paper and metal to build/purchase/insure them. The list goes on.

#226 well, IF they're identical, their DNA would be so too, which mean that you failed.

thats what I was thinking... the birth certificates for my kids don't even have the finger/foot prints on them, just name, dob, parents name, place of birth etc. nothing that would distinguish twins...

yeah...im a triplet and id be pretty pissed off too i agree with the twin that commented. we are individuals and yeah it does matter. what if you were called by your sibilings name for eight years?

they have the foot print. So even though they are twins they still have different hand/foot prints so the birth certificate has the baby's foot print which tells the difference!

Reply
  jessyrodgers  |  0

it dosent matter if the birth certificate has hands or feet prints she was doing it for 8 and a 1/2 years you don't think the feet/hands would've grown hence not matched the birth certificate anyway

335, actually identical twins have the exact same DNA structure. the only differences there could be are finger and thumb prints which or from movement in the womb or from outside damage like scaring. other than those and hair and clothes everything is usually the same unless it's a rare case. Go and tale your biology class again... and again till you get it right.

I'm sorry to say this about the multiples who did comment, but I think you should only be half mad. yes they did name you one thing but you grew into the other. it might become a problem later with birth certificates, but you won't be able to remember if you were bob instead of rob. speaking for myself is all, but yes I'd be a little angry too

She doesn't say identical twins. The twins could have different hair colour or eye colour etc. So the Birth Certificates would have things on to identify between them.

my birth certificate just has my name, birthday, sex and where i was born nothing about my eye or hair colour... nothing that could be used to tell me apart from another person.

Reply
  Kill_Kayt  |  5

31 that is because most babies aren't born with hair. also 93% of babies are born with blue eyes that change colour after a few weeks. sometimes hair can change color after a few weeks to years as well.

It probably says on the birth certificates that X was older than Y, whereas they grew up calling the older one Y and the younger one X. i know twins like this who due to many mixups in the hospital STILL (aged 17) don't actually know which twin corresponds to which birth certificate.

well their DNA would test the same, but finger prints would be different even if they are identical Every persons prints are different. the thing is birth certificates don't have prints on them. just date, place , given names, parents names. there is a paper you get with all the other information but it's not the birth certificate.

Im an identical twin and we have different finger prints. Prints are determined by genetics AND external influences. So if one is exposed to more of one hormone then the other then the prints will vary.

babies are born practically blind..they are able to tell who their parents are by their scent and hearing. because of this ALL babies are born with blue eyes that after a few days/weeks will eventually turn into their permanent eye color.

97 - I have no idea if the 93% is right, but actually many babies are born with blue eyes that change colour due to melanin not being deposited in the irises yet...

Fingerprints and physical appearance in general are part of an individual’s phenotype, which arises from the interaction of the individual’s genes and the developmental environment in the uterus. In the case of fingerprints, the genes determine the general characteristics of the patterns that are used for fingerprint classification. As the skin on the fingertip differentiates, it expresses these general characteristics. However, as a surface tissue, it is also in contact with the amniotic fluid in the uterus. The fingertips are also in contact with other parts of the fetus and the uterus, and their position in relation to uterus and the fetal body changes as the fetus moves on its own and in response to positional changes of the mother. Thus the microenvironment of the growing cells on the fingertip is in flux, and is always slightly different from hand to hand and finger to finger. It is this microenvironment that determines the fine detail of the fingerprint structure. I stand corrected I was confused with the DNA aspects my bad

Yes, eye and hair colour often change. I was born with red hair. (It later changed to brown) My mom yelled at the nurses for not cleaning the blood off me properly. Lol

177- Let it go for fuck sakes, it has already been established that twins DON'T have the same fingerprints, similar, but no 2 people will ever have the same fingerprints, which makes us all unique.

118...not ALL babies are born w/blue eyes. True, most Caucasian babies' eyes change from blue to whatever color but blacks, Latinos, Asians don't typically have the blue eye gene.

224: technically, everyone has the blue eye gene. eye color is determined by multiple genes. everyone has the blue eye gene and if u have a certain gene it changes blue to hazel or green. if u have the green eye gene, u could have another gene to change it to brown

Humans are about 99% genetically the same except the little DNA things at the tip of the fingers called microsatellites that are unique to one another.

67- ah no sweety! sorry everyone is unique in there own way and has different prints - that's how people identify them eg. forensics, anything to do with crime, hospitals etc..... duh how do you not know that?

cause you're not a twin and likely cause the hospital did not the technology, did a Wolf deliver you? many children have footprint cause finger print is still developing and not constant at this point.

#9, I have never seen a birth certificate that lists eye colour, hair colour, or any identifying characteristics of the child. #10, I've never seen a birth certificate with finger prints on it.

#240 - uh, NOT everybody has a blue eye gene. You can have two brown eyed genes! Or two green, or two hazel. It depends on the genes your parents carry. If your parents both have a brown eyed gene, then that means you could end up with two brown eyed genes (one from each of your parents). Perfectly normal. Did you do biology in highschool?

when my parents named me and my twin sister they decided that the first one born would be name this and the second one born would be named that. Maybe she got mixed up somehow.

  sappy082996  |  6

280 yes I took biology. I took it this yr in fact. and like I said unlike most traits eye color depends on multiple genes and unless ur albino for that trait u have the blue eye gene. u inherit from ur parents the genes to change it from blue to other colors. if u have brown eyes, u still have the blue eye gene, u just have others as well to add on to it and determine ur eye color

When I was born I had a band that said "Boy A" and my brother had "Boy B" So the mom would probably know who they are. But if I were the mom I just wouldn't tell the boys.

ok if they were identical she wouldn't mix them up. she most likely realized that she had been calling the twin born first by the younger twins name and noticed by the time of birth of both.

97-My son had blue eyes and dark brown hair when he was born. He is now 3 1/2 and has blonde hair and green eyes. His hair color has changed several times. Dark when he was a baby, super blonde after his dark hair fell out and new hair grew back, then it turned dark again around 1 and has now stayed blonde for about 1 1/2 years. So yes eye color changes in newborns. Sorry to burst your tiny bubble.

I work on a pediatric/ nursery unit and I rarely see a baby born with no hair. where are you getting your statistics from? cause it's not accurate. Also, you can't just look at a fingerprint and identify who it belongs to.

No, you would have to tell then now so that they can get used to their new name .. once they get older n have to get license they will need to have the right name.. I would be more pissed if I had to change my name at age 16 then at age 8

Reply
  AcidRaen  |  4

what exactly is the point of changing their names now? they are too old to change it now. they have been identified by those names for 8 and a half years. but then again if their parents told them what happened i guess they could choose if they wanted to stick with the names they have now or if they wanted to switch names

Well then they aren't identical twins, they're paternal twins. The difference is that in identical twins, the egg is fertilized and then splits in two. For paternal twins, two eggs are released at the same time and are fertilized at the same time. That would result in the twins being born on the same day but looking like regular siblings.

I don't see how you would find that out from a birth certificate. that is unless they have numbers on them an you tattooed those numbers on the bottom of their feet...

# 10, they're identical twins, so they have the same genes, so they can't have different eye colors.

One would have been born before the other. The time of birth is on the BC, so if she was calling the eldest by the name she gave the youngest, and vice versa... therein lies the problem.
