Name for DD2 - thought we'd decided, but having a wobble....!

I'm 30 weeks with DD2. DD1 (age 6) is Cecilia Rose (known almost exclusively as Cece). I originally had a list of possible names that I liked, but realised that none of them 'felt right' so left it for a while to have a think.

I realised that I picked DD1's name for lots of reasons (though I do love it) and as this is a very surprise pg and I never thought I'd get to choose another baby name, I just want to pick a name simply because I love it.

I came up with two contenders. First is India, which I really do love. When I suggested it to DH he just said 'that's not a proper name' and wasn't keen at all! It also doesn't go with our surname.
My other choice is Tara. I have no idea why, but this does 'feel right'. Though I know it's not, it seems like a nick name, so the plan was to call baby Tamara but use Tara as her everyday name. Middle name to be Jane.
DH is much more keen on this. I'd just like to say that although this post seems all about what I think and want, DH does have an input! It's just that he is so over the moon to be having another baby (when we didn't think it was possible) that he is ultimately happy to let me choose. He trusts my judgement!

So, Tamara (Tara) Jane. What do you think?

DH wanted Tamara for DD2. I think it is a beautiful name. Go for it.

Tara is lovely name - not chavvy at all! And very rare without being weird. The meanings are nice too. She'll be destined to turn out gorgeous, clever and successful with such a brilliant name

...can you guess my name?! grin

Love Tamara and Tara. The Tamara I know is never shorten to Tammy only Mara. The Tara I know gets shortened to 'T'

If you like India, have you considered Indiana?
