Clara has always been the favourite but having seen the name Astrid in a book I really like it. Her brother is Adam.

Clara Astrid?
Astrid Clara?

definitely clara

Barefoot789 Fri 07-Aug-15 18:41:04

I love Clara! But I do also like Astrid. Clara is more classic I'd say x

Romeyroo Fri 07-Aug-15 18:46:11

Clara definitely.

Clara, definitely smile

Clara. Astrid sounds clunky.

I love Astrid, I'd love to be able to use it.

I like Clara too though.

AnnieOnAMapleLeaf Fri 07-Aug-15 18:51:22

That depends. Which pronunciation for Clara would you use?

Thanks all!

Lurleene I am but haven't chosen the names because of that - I only discovered yesterday after looking at the name Astrid it was the name of Kylie's character in Doctor Who. Astrid is also an anagram of Tardis I now know!

lostinikea I don't know what you mean?

I love Astrid. Sounds like a trail of stars in a pitch dark sky to me! I have known two Astrids - both German - and they are both lovely people and very interesting. I Clara a bit meh.

Clara and Adam work better as a pair - they both get their own initials.

Astrid sounds harder and less elegant to my ears.

Inkymess Fri 07-Aug-15 19:03:21

Clara. Like Astrid but could be seen as I bit odd

Lurleene Fri 07-Aug-15 19:21:46

Doctor Who reasons or not I think they're both lovely. Congratulations. smile

CrystalMcPistol Fri 07-Aug-15 21:01:38

Clara is lovely.

I don't like the ass sound in Astrid.

Only1scoop Fri 07-Aug-15 21:02:11

Like Clara not keen on Astrid

AnnieOnAMapleLeaf Fri 07-Aug-15 21:46:28

I'm not a fan of the Clar-ra pronunciation personally. I prefer Clair-ra.

Sophronia Fri 07-Aug-15 22:15:18

Clara Astrid

FlossieTreadlight Fri 07-Aug-15 22:17:46

Clara - lovely name

Whitetulipofpeace Fri 07-Aug-15 22:24:09

I adore Astrid. I loved it when I first heard it in Doctor Who and loved it even more when I watched Fringe!

Skittles88 Fri 07-Aug-15 22:24:43

I know two sisters with these names! I prefer Clara as I always see/think Asteroid with Astrid.

DramaAlpaca Fri 07-Aug-15 22:26:51


I know two sets of siblings called Adam & Clara, no doubt because they go together really well.
