What is a paternal twin?

Answer

Although there is no such thing as a paternal twin, the term is often substituted for the phrase fraternal twin. This type of twin develops from a fertilized ovum separate from its twin brother or sister.

The two types of twins are called fraternal and identical twins. Fraternal twins do not always look alike and may be of the same or opposite sex. Identical twins develop in the same ovum and bear the same genotype. They usually look very much alike. Identical twins are always of the same gender.

Some people mistakenly identify twins as "maternal" and "paternal" twins, but these terms have no meaning.
