Middle name to go with Cara

Hi all,

We're expecting our first baby in a few weeks and are thinking of choosing Cara if it's a girl, but can't think of a middle name to go with it. We have an Irish surname that's quite difficult to spell so are looking for something fairly simple.

Let me know if you have any ideas!

Thanks :-)

Cara Louise sounds good

Oooh spooky - I came on to say Louise too!

Are you both Irish? If not perhaps a nod to another culture?

Most names work with it provided they don't have an A ending too I think?

So it could be
Cara Louise [which is lovely but sort of rolls off the tongue like it should be Cara-Louise]

Cara Poppy
Cara Ivy
Could be anything really.

So many ways you could go!

Cara is a lovely name by the way- good choice!

Thanks! I like Cara Louise too but my sister's name is Clare Louise so not sure if it's a bit too samey?

I did think Cara Maeve too...
