Help me choose! Surname is a fairly normal two syllable name.

Olivia Lara

Olivia Isabel sounds clumsy to me.

Olivia Isabel sounds lovely.

Too much L and A in Olivia Lara.

Olivia Isabel, definitely. I find Lara a bit slur-y (I did try and write that 'slurry' but that has other, far less pleasant connotations!)

I agree with toast.

I like Lara Olivia better. I know sooo many Olivias that it has kind of put me off the name now! Lara is more u usual and she won't have 2 others with the same name in her class!

Lara is lovely! But Olivia Isabel if it's a straight choice, agree with celtictoast

Olivia Isobel.

I agree that Olivia Lara is too much L and A.

Olivia Lara. I think the two vowels together at the end of Olivia and beginning of Isabel make it weird to say. Also, Olivia and Isabel are both quite common names round here (may be different where you are) and Lara is more unusual.

Agree that Lara would be lovely as a first name, Lara Isabel or Lara Olivia.

Olivia Lara doesn't flow well.

Olivia Isobel does.

Lara Olivia makes me think of Laurence Olivier.

Olivia Lara is nicer IMO. Middle names are largely irrelevant though so I'm not sure it really matters...

As brokenhearted says, neither flows wonderfully well.

I think Olivia Lara flows really well.

Fwiw, I like Lara Isobel better than either one on your list.

Olivia Lars out of the 2.

Olivia is a lovely choice of name.
