Twin because he is hermaphrodit, cf. Germanic Tuisto (Twist-), meaning a double being.

Because I think *Yemos and *Manus are not Twins. The Celestial Twins are  the sons of the Horse-God and a giantess or demoness.

   But if *Yemos is "twin" he must be twinned with someone.
   I'm curious about your family tree for the Celestial Twins.  I often see them connected with the Sun Maiden, who is connected with horses; in both Greece/Rome and among the Balts they are the sons of *Dyeus; and they are themselves associated with horses.  But a horse god?  I don't see one in IE religion.  Who is the giantess/demoness?
