Our baby girl is 2 days old and we still haven't settled on name yet. Currently swinging between Lara ( Larissa) and Cora. Which do you prefer? Need to settle on something asap.

Lara is beautiful I am less keen on Cora (corer). I have an apple corer which I got fromLakeland. If it wasn't for that it might be ok but it sounds a bit like a blousy American housewife to me whereas Lara is elegant and lovely.

Lara, but not Larissa.

Lara stands alone perfectly well. Beautiful.

Lara is lovely.

Cora just makes me think of the insides of apples.

Lara. Not Larissa but just plain Lara.

I laughed really hard when I saw the character of Cora on Downton, because Cora to me is a middle aged Irish Home Economics teacher c. 1979, not one bit elegant or smooth.

There are thousands of Coras in Ireland, all aged about 80 to 90 now. It's the Gladys or Phyllis or Mavis of Ireland, along with Assumpta or Attracta. Not granny chic.

Cora!! Beautiful.

Cora.. or Clara smile

I like them both equally. Don't like Larissa sounds cheaper and Clara is nice.

Prefer Lara. Also depending on surname Cora could sound funny eg Cora Sidebottom = Cor! A Sidebottom. Snigger snigger.

Lara, always loved it since I read Dr Zhivago, however I'm a big fan of Downton Abbey & Cora has somewhat of a revival since Downton

i like both but prefer Cora. it's so lovely

ginzillas Sun 13-Oct-13 20:26:02

Cora. Love it.

What about Carla? I've always loved that name and it combines sounds from both.

Floralnomad Sun 13-Oct-13 20:23:32

I was also going to say Coralie .

Another vote for Lara here. Have you decided yet??

Viviennemary Sun 13-Oct-13 20:20:54

I definitely like Cora best. Bt also Coralie and Corrine.

Don't like either.
