It should also be noted that Negi and Nagi have different magic specialties, Negi is said to be a wind specialist while most of the scenes of Nagi are shown with him using lightening(although negi can use lightening his main element is wind)
Then again recently he's been using lightening more often
This theory isnt baseless but there are too many holes for me to consider as a possibility
