...or Clara.

Which would you go for? smile

Clara. I find Martha and Eliza quite harsh.

Do love Eliza Thornberry though.

Martha. Hate Clara. Eliza is nice but I'd go for Elizabeth, personally grin

All fabulous names and were on my short list for dd1. I love Martha but my DH hated it (but couldn't say why!). I'll be keeping Clara and Eliza on the list for the next one.

Eliza. I think it's a beautiful name.

Love Martha, like Eliza, don't like Clara.

SparklyFucker Tue 19-Nov-13 23:45:11

Martha has been done to death around here, Clara is lovely though.

TerrorMeSue Tue 19-Nov-13 23:46:25

Martha or Clara. Never Eliza.

Close call between Eliza and Martha but I would go for Eliza.

Not keen on Clara, makes me think of cows and matronly Austrian women with plaits.

I love Martha..if we're having a girl she will be Martha Rwth xx

I'm probably outing myself but I have an Eliza and a Clara. I can't tell you the number of genuine compliments I have had regarding them. Beautiful names that will go with them in which ever direction they chose to travel.

shootingstar1234 Fri 22-Nov-13 22:57:26

Eliza, then Clara then Martha.
Eliza is on my list for future DD smile

I think Eliza is beautiful smile. Clara sounds a bit clumsy to me - I think it's awkward to say somehow. And Martha's a bit old fashioned for my liking.

We have a 4 year old Martha. I don't know any others. She suits it down to the ground. smile

MikeLitoris Sat 23-Nov-13 19:20:32

I have an Eliza and always get compliments.

I like Clara but am not too fussed on Martha.

I know an Eliza who is a piece of work - and she is a grown up. So no to Eliza. I think I like Martha best.

Eliza is nice, nn Lizzy. I teach 3 Martha's, 1 Eliza and no Clara's (primary) .
