Are both my kittens torties?

Hello
We are getting two kittens on Friday, and I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of cats they are? someone thought they were torties, but I wasn't sure about the black one.

This is them at 4 weeks old one picture there, with mummy cat to.

Thanks if anyone can reply. We are still struggling to name them hehe

Neither appear to be torties. The black one is a black DSH (Domestic Short Hair). She(?) appears to have ghosting of mackerel tabby stripes.

The other one looks like a brown or grey mackeral tabby, again a DSH.

DSH is the breed, mackerel tabby is the coat pattern. (Tortie is also a coat pattern).

Thanks for the replies. I was told the black one was a boy, and the tabby is a girl.
Thanks for explaining about what types they both are
They are so cute but i can't wait to see what they look like when grown. Such lovely kitties they both are.

Thank you
The kids have come up with quite a few names, but our favourites are characters out of Avatar - the last Air Bender lol Katara and Sooka (pronounced Sacka, might just spell it that way lol)
