What could be a word for people who are born on the same day but are not siblings?

I am creating a website and matching my college students who were born on same day. I need an appropriate or the closest equivalent word in English to describe that situation. A word or short expression that I could use as its domain name.

I'm not expecting the exact word for this situation, but at the very least it should be an appropriate and acceptable one, even a short phrase will do but its meaning must be comprehensible to visitors to the website.

I need a single word or combination of two words that should be very catchy for the audience.

Can anyone help?

  • Statistically speaking, in a room of 30 people there is more than 50-50 chance that a least one pair were born on the same day. I can´t prove it but I just know it is true!

  • @Cascabel There may well be more than a 50-50 chance that a pair of them HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY. However the OP here is talking about people born on the same day - quite a different thing. If the age distribution of the 30 were entirely random - from 0 to age 90 - then I calculate that there would only be approx. one chance in 75 that you would find two born on the same day. This should be on the maths or statistics site!

  • @WS2 - 1 in 75 sounds high, but admittedly probability is weird, and of course as we all know million-to-one chances crop up 9 times out of 10.

I've heard the phrase "cosmic twin" be used for such folks. "Oh, your birthday is August 1, 1982? So is mine! We're cosmic twins!"


what about these suggestions?

"birthday twins" (born on the same day & same month)

"birthdate twins" (born on the same day & same month & same year)

"time twins" (born on the same day & same month & same year)

btw. there is a similar website with people born on the same day (same date) - https://birthdays.astro-seek.com


My late mother-in-law used to call them "Fairy Twins"! I still use the expression now.

    Answers to word and phrase requests should be backed up with links to reputable dictionaries. In most cases it is helpful to quote the relevant definition here as well.

You could call them "co-stars".

This would be catchy because it sounds as though they are movie stars.

It also hints at the fact that they were born under the same star-sign.

  • That would be a good one, But i am expecting little more word suggestions,So that in could get to a conclusion for the answer Jul 28 '15 at 8:45
  • Too general. The question is about simultaneous dates, not star signs.

  • @Anton - Thanks for the comment. I think it's a little harsh. Quote "I'm not expecting the exact word for this situation" and "two words that should be very catchy for the audience" - I did my best to fulfil both those requests. :-) Jul 28 '15 at 8:59
