Amoura? I really love it, but I think everyone will hate it, not that I am too fussed ( not even pregnant yet smile )

I think it is a lovely name, far better than calling her a name that every other child has smile

Jessicahyde85 Mon 19-Jan-15 21:17:23

Do you think so? :/

IHeartKingThistle Mon 19-Jan-15 21:22:52

Yeah I pretty much hate it but I wouldn't listen to me grin

It sounds like the name of a massage parlour that offers extras.

Figster Mon 19-Jan-15 21:25:05

Sorry don't like it and yup will spend her whole life spelling it for people and pronouncing it .

Reekypear Mon 19-Jan-15 21:25:24

Woulda you like some amoura pasta ( In a dolmio type accent ).

I think it sounds pretty, though if I heard it out loud I would guess the spelling to be 'Amora'.

It's gonna inspire a lot of puns.

Maura, or indeed Moira, might be alternatives? Its nice, though I wouldn't use it myself due to potential spelling problems. My dad has a welsh name and told me once he purposefully chose "normal" English names for us because he didn't want us to experience a lifetime of correcting people.

No sorry it's terrible. Is it made up?

GiniCooper Mon 19-Jan-15 21:31:34

Have to agree with squoosh on the massage parlour name, sorry.

Its a Spanish name for love.

Awful. Massage parlour, happy endings, the lot.

I think a Spanish name meaning love would be Amora, OP.

kelda Mon 19-Jan-15 21:35:27

What about Amara?

mupperoon Mon 19-Jan-15 21:36:26

But Spanish for love is amor. It's more like a tarted up French amour. Sounds American to me.

Pippidoeswhatshewants Mon 19-Jan-15 21:36:28

It's not a Spanish name for love that I know. Love is amor in Spanish.

mupperoon Mon 19-Jan-15 21:38:04

And if you go with Amora - that's a brand of mustard. Hmmm.
