Inoffensive. I prefer Lana and Lyra of the cluster of L names that's around.

Love it. Have loved it since there was a Lara in Casualty. grin Unfortunately it doesn't really go with our surname. hmm

Would have been my DDs name if I hadn't only had boys. Really really like it.

Fabulous name

Lara is a beautiful name!

I have a Lara. It's surprisingly uncommon. I think we've met two other Lara's, one a few years older and one a few years younger.

It's beautiful.

REALLY like it!

Its really lovely, I have 3 daughters and I flirted with Lara for each of them. In the end I didn't choose it, but my dd1 goes to school with a Lara and its gorgeous when she says it.

I love Lara - pretty without being overly flowery.

MrsLatcher Mon 07-Jan-13 07:34:06

Absolutely beautiful name.

HDee Mon 07-Jan-13 07:29:59

I love it. I know a Lara who is lovely and confident and friendly which helps (she's very loud too, but I can forgive her that)

chickabilla Mon 07-Jan-13 07:26:17

Love it, want this for my baby but too close to Laura, which would cause upset!

DessieLou Mon 07-Jan-13 02:35:23

Lovely! I also like elara/alara. :-)

I like it too -- but Larissa is the full form in Russian, not the diminutive.

Lovely name!

I prefer Clara but Lara is nice enough.
