The terms Siamese twins and conjoined twins explain the same phenomenon, 
however, the use of the word Siamese instead of conjoined is due to the fact 
that the first set of twins known to the world came from Siam.

Here is an interesting link on the classification of Conjoined or Siamese Twins

Thanks for your question!
