Victoria and Clare?

Lovely. Both classic names which go really well together.

one is such a long name, and the other very short so for that reason they sound mis matched to me.

I'd prefer Victoria and Clara.

I like both but agree that they don't sound brilliant together. If I was Claire, I might grow up to think that my sister had got the better deal, although Claire is the better name imho!

Lovely names but as a Victoria myself I must ask, are you happy with all of the NN's that can come with the name? My mum hated vic/vicky/vics, consequently all through school she would correct friends which as a child i hated!!!! However my family have shortened it to 'tor'.

I have twin girls myself so would also like to say 'congratulations', it's brilliant.

Nice names, and a refreshing change from the 'Tilly and Milly/ 'Daisy and Maisie' style twin girls names which seem a bit more popular these days.

Prefer Claire/Clare/Clara to Victoria but I agree with Remus, she may feel when they're little that she drew the short straw. Lovely names though OP. Congratulations!

I like the two names together, and I especially like that spelling of Clare.

Lovely! When I clicked on this thread I was so worried it was going to be really cringey and rhyming ��

I like them both.

One has lots of immediate nickname potential, the other has none. Don't know if that bothers you!

Really lovely, both of them. (for some reason I prefer Claire to Clare but don't know why)

If you're looking for alternative nns for Victoria I know a Toria. But I wouldn't shorten it personally.

I like both. But then I'm biased as one of them is my name grin

I don't like either.

I also prefer Victoria nn Tori with Clara

Both names are terrible and I say that as having one of the names myself.

I prefer Victoria to Clare, but both aren't great. Victoria is a classic but Clare to me just feels 80's and dated.
