DW and I have over 100K in cash that we need to preserve. If FDIC insurance only covers up to 100K, what possibilities do we have?

--Deposit the money in two different banks?
--Will a joint account mean that we are really insured for 200,000? (Does it matter whose name comes first? For example, DW has suggested that it might work to have two joint accounts at the same bank, but one lists her name first and one lists my name first.)
--Other possibilities?
