In this paper, we define the double Fibonacci sequence and the basic double Fibonacci sequence in groups and rings. Then we examine these sequences in finite 2-generator groups and rings. Also, we obtain the periods of the double Fibonacci sequences and the basic double Fibonacci sequences in the dihedral group D2m and the ring E for the generating pairs (a, b) and (b, a) as applications of the results obtained.
