I love the name but bothers me that everyone shops at Zara, including myself!
Do people like the name and would you be put off by the shop name?

I really like the name, but dislike the shop!

MargoReadbetter Wed 22-Jul-15 23:22:06

I too like the name. I think I should like the shop but nothing ever fits me from there. I'm an average shape and size.

I like the name. I didn't think of the shop when I saw your thread title.

Minniebrown Wed 22-Jul-15 23:24:12

Haha I also have that trouble Margo.
But would it put you off naming your girl Zara?

I do like the name. The shop, not so much.

I like the name and the shop doesn't put me off, but when I mentioned it my friend said oh no you can't use that, because of the shop!

I thought of Zara Phillips!

The shop wouldn't put me off at all. Zara is a nice name. If you'd said Lakeland or Paperchase, maybe a gentle nudge towards more mainstream names. I have a friend with a dd Zara (half-Iraqi).

The shop wouldn't put me off, I should have added.

Minniebrown Wed 22-Jul-15 23:29:52

Better scratch Paperchase from my short list then..oh well!

Smiggle is the new kid on the block.

Thanks reuset

Zara says Princess Anne's daughter to me. I've never met anyone called Zara.

I'm not really aware of the shop. Don't think there is one near me.

I like it.

motherofallhangovers Thu 23-Jul-15 00:53:24

I also like the name and didn't think of the shop.

HelenF35 Thu 23-Jul-15 01:12:40

Hate the shop (mainly because my massive boobs won't fit in anything!), love the name.

clearasmud Thu 23-Jul-15 01:20:08

Love the name. I know a 30 year old Zara and thought of her, not the shop.

scrivette Thu 23-Jul-15 01:36:01

I first thought of Zara Phillips too it the shop.

I would use it.... except I already have a little girl called Sara.....

tomatodizzymum Thu 23-Jul-15 01:45:59

I do but it does remind me of the shop. How about Lara, Kara, Cara or Yara/Iara?

BreeVDKamp Thu 23-Jul-15 02:22:36

Loooove it, it's my chosen girls name! smile

freddyfucktard Thu 23-Jul-15 02:30:10

That's my name grin

freddyfucktard Thu 23-Jul-15 02:34:00

Nice to see so many people actually like my name lol, I didn't like it for a period of time because I thought it was too girly for me (bit of a tommy) but I actually love my name now and I have only ever known two other people with it
