Had DD3 on Saturday and she is still nameless. DH and I can't decide between Clara or Ada. Clara is his choice and Ada mine.

Middle names will be Emmeline Rose.

Help us decide please!

Clara is very pretty and I have only come across one in the last few years.

I had DD2 on Saturday, and she is nameless too grin

Unhelpfully I love both your names. Clara is probably a tad more popular if that bothers you? What are the sibling names?

But you have had nine months to think of names. grin

Ada makes me think of Les Dawson in drag. Cissie and Ada!

Also voting for Clara, it's prettier I think, without being too baby/girl ish IYKWIM

Congratulations smile

Definitely Clara

My DD is Adelaide and is Ada for short. I am biased but obv. prefer Ada, I think it's a strong but feminine name.

Clara I love, (The book Heidi anyone?)
I think Ada as a nn for a longer name like poster above would be a good option also.

I like Ada better, agree it's a good strong but feminine name, though both are nice!

Both really lovely names as are the mns. Clara is more popular I think and perhaps more classic while Ada is old-ladyish but still really pretty. Its a tough one. How would you pronounce Clara? would it rhyme with Sarah or Lara iyswim? What are your other DC names?

Papyrus Tue 20-Sep-11 16:27:15

Thanks for all the comments. Clara would be pronouced to rhyme with Lara.

Other DC are Eliza, Henry and Annie.

Seeing your DCs names I feel Clara would go the best. Hard choice for you though! Also, I have yet to meet a Clara so fail to see how it is popular.

Def Clara and adore your middle names.

Your other childrens' names are lovely too.

Ihavewelliesbutitssunny Tue 20-Sep-11 17:16:21

I think that Clara goes better with your other DCs names than Ada.

Papyrus Tue 20-Sep-11 17:19:47

Right we've decided she's Clara Emmeline Rose

Thanks for all your imput grin

Hooray! Beautiful name smile

sailorsgal Tue 20-Sep-11 19:04:44

Fabulous choice! We have similiar taste as I have one of your other dc's names.
