Do these names go together as a first and middle name?

Can't have Emmeline first as DD1's name begins with 'E'.

(I now want to know what dd1 is called because I'm sure that will be something stunningly lovely too!)

Oh, yes, I was hoping you'd say Claaaaaara. smile

Sorted then! smile

And yes I agree with Longdistance

When I saw the thread title I was hoping Pankhurst.

Clara is a lovely name.

Lovely name - feminine but strong smile

Thank you for the positive feedback.

We pronounce is 'Claarra.'

How exciting - think we've found 'the one.'

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

They vowels would only run on if they were both "a" (like Clara Amanda)

This is the most lovely name combination I've seen on here for a long time and I insist you use it!! <bossy> grin

I don't think they flow. It's the vowel vowel thing.

MadameJosephine Sun 28-Apr-13 11:14:03

Love it! Almost worth having another DD do I can steal your idea smile

Both lovely names but agree with Ikea about the vowels running together.

xigris Sun 28-Apr-13 08:09:41

Love it and love your DH's family tradition smile

I really really like both names but my only word of caution is that as one ends in a vowel and the other starts in a vowel then can tend to run into each other. When this happens people either tend to sort of add in an extra R sound between the names or have to make a deliberate pause in their speech to prevent it from happening.

This might not bother you but I have this problem with my dd's names and it does irritate me a little.

Love it.

They sound good together.

What a totally fab tradition! smile

Giggling at Emmeline being made up grin

It's said as Claa_ra rather than Clai_ra in my case btw.


Longdistance Sun 28-Apr-13 07:51:41

I likeir but, I'm biased....being a Clara Martha oops...<outs self>

stinkingbishop Sun 28-Apr-13 07:44:28

Gorgeous name, well done you, I only decided mine in the labour suite!!!

chattychattyboomba Sun 28-Apr-13 07:27:55

Hehe... Ok. I say 'uh'bove as opposed to 'ah'bove or 'ay'bove.
So Clara like 'Lara Croft'

JazzAnnNonMouse Sun 28-Apr-13 07:06:07

Chatty - the 'a' in both 'apple' an 'above' sound the same to me confused

To me the different pronunciation of Clara would be 'claarra' or 'claira'.
I prefer claara.

Clara Emmeline is a wonderful name. grin

I think they're lovely together. I prefer the pronunciation of Clarr-ra to Clair-ra, FWIW.

NathanTheProphet Sat 27-Apr-13 22:40:51

Very good!

LegArmpits Sat 27-Apr-13 22:40:00

One of them is my name, one of them is my favourite name!

chickydoo Sat 27-Apr-13 22:35:16

Lovely name xx

chattychattyboomba Sat 27-Apr-13 22:26:45

Out of interest- how will you pronounce Clara? Like the 'a' from apple? Or the 'a' from above?

Still18atheart Sat 27-Apr-13 22:20:15

Love it

Love Clara and really like Emmeline
