These are top contenders for DC2 - what do people think? We already have a DS called Jude. I want something unusual but not too out-there. The middle name will be Jane. Are there any other names I should be considering? Thanks!

All nice but Lara's my favourite.

Love Rosa! It's on my list too smile

I have a Lara. I meet very few other Laras. Lovely name.

Lara is beautiful, love Cora toosmile Rosa is nice enough but i fear it'll become 'Rosie' which is very 'on trend' at the mo!

IslaValargeone Thu 11-Aug-11 15:18:37

Lara definitely.

Lara...not so keen on Lara, due to horrid girl when I was at school [pulls a funny face, need to get over that] blush blush

Cora. Lovely. Live Jude btw.

Have you thought about

or Lyra?

They're all lovely, must be hard to decide. Maybe think about which goes better with your surname? I think Lara would be my favourite, followed by Cora then Rosa. I like the sound of Lara Jane.

I love the longer forms too like Larissa, Corinna etc.

Lara definitely.

Hmm, like them all. Write a list and stick a pin in it when blindfolded!

Not sure about Cora but v much like the other two. I know one of each, Rosa doesn't get called Rosie either - it's very definitely Ros-a.

Not keen on Cora, but love Rosa and Lara (also Clara).

Carrotsandcelery Thu 11-Aug-11 18:15:21

I love Lara - and Lara Jane is a fantastic name.

My name is very similar to Cora and I find it a bit harsh sounding - I never enjoy telling people my name.

Rosa is very pretty but very popular just now. If you don't want her to share her name with three others the same or similar in her class I would vote for Lara.

Cora then Rosa. I'm not fond of Lara.

Rhubarbgarden Thu 11-Aug-11 18:52:34

Lara. I also like Lorna and Flora in the same vein.

Cora is gorgeous! And out of the three I think Jude and Cora sound best together and of the same 'style.'
