Names like Dora or Nina?

I like both of these, but they're both slightly 'off' if you know what I mean, maybe slightly boring?

What has a similar feel?

Norah?

I've always liked Dora since I first read the name in a Dickens story, its sadly eclipsed now by Dora the Explorer sad

I went to school with a Nina.

I like Natalie although no idea how dated that is now.
Also Kelsey
Anna (although increasingly pronounced Honour since Frozen)

I like Nina but I know what you mean about Dora.

How about Maya or Maia? Nora? Eva? Lucia?

Nina - yes (Nina Simone!)
Dora - no!

I don't really get what you mean, they're 'slightly off', but yet you like them? Both nice names, especially Nina.

Mara? Lena? Lara? Lana?

NadiaWadia Sat 19-Dec-15 03:48:51

Or Lilah, Zara, Maya

Corbymummy Sat 19-Dec-15 04:17:02
