Yes yes, I know it's a bit of a mouthful! But is it too much do you think?

We've fallen in love with the name Clara. It's the only name we agree on and I can't imagine using anything else now. Annabel is a close family member who I've always planned on honouring if I had a baby girl.

Thoughts?

Umm its lovely, but it does remind me of the carriages in Thomas the Tank Engine, though their actual names are Annie and Clarabel

I think it's a beautiful name x

Pretty but not sure about the a at the end of Clara mixing with the A in Annabel.

I might add another name....

Clara Evie Annabel

Clara Mary AnnBel

Clara beatrice Annabel

I thought it was the name of Thomas the Tank's carriages too, sorry.

Thanks for all the replies smile.

I didn't even think about the Thomas thing. Don't think it'll put me off though!

I LOVE Beatrice. shame DP has crap taste

I think it's a lovely name. It doesn't really matter how they sound together as you don't use the middle name everyday iykwim

I think it's a lovely name.

I agree with Ruprekt, I would put an extra, short name in there. Clara Annabel said together sounds a bit slurred confused Both beautiful names though, IMO.

Does sound a bit slurred.

Also makes me think of an imaginary sweet, doe eyed brown cow in a children's story book.

You should 100% stick with Clara Annabel. It's beautiful! You will rarely say the whole thing out loud, it looks lovely in paper and you have a good reason for using it. My first name ends in a vowel and my middle name starts with a vowel - it's never occurred to me that it's hard to say. Don't be thrown off course and don't add another name, really not necessary.
