Expecting DC2, don't know the gender but these names are amongst our favourites for girls, though DH not so keen on Cecilia.

We have a rather harsh, short surname beginning with F, and middle name would be either Anne or Alice.

Your thoughts please?

Will you say it
Claw-dia
or
Cloud-ia
?

(exaggerations but you know what I mean)

I like Cecilia best.

Cecilia and Claudia are two of my favourite ever names. And with a one syllable surname (I'm guessing along the lines of Frost/Fox?) I think you need something a bit longer than Lara. Claudy/Cloudy and Celia/Ceecee are lovely nicknames.

Think Alice runs better with all three possibilities, given a short surname.

Also, if you are attached to "C" (I am for some reason):

Cicely
Cornelia
Celandine
Callista
Collette
Calliope
Carmela
Clemency
Claudette
Cynthia
Coralie
