As a sister for Naomi. Is it too poncey/too much of a mouthful?

It is definitely difficult to say. I know someone with an Aria and it took me a long time to remember it because it's unusual (in my circles anyway.)

My daughters name.

We call her Rorie for short. I love it (obviously!) but there is the Sleeping Beauty connection which is made by people more often than I thought it would.

It's a lovely name and sounds good with Naomi smile

I love it. When introducing your children you would need to say "Naomi and Aurora" rather then "Aurora and Naomi" Auroraand is definitely a mouthful

It's a really beautiful name. Not sure it "goes" with Naomi though, but I don't see why sibling names necessarily have to match.

Bit Disney for my liking. Plus quite a mouthful with Naomi

Ive been wondering the same thing today, but after saying it out loud a few times I decided it is a bit too tricky to say. I also don't like Rory which I think would be inevitable. It's a beautiful name though.

Over-reaching, a tad. Are you generally quite insecure?

I love this name but it's been vetoed by all my family. I was surprised about the princess connection as I didn't know this until it was pointed out to me. The main problem is my mum and son can not say it so I've had the go for another name.

One of my favourites but DH veto'd sad but turned out to be a boy so I have more time to nag...

I like it. I know a few Italian Aurora's.

CalacasSG Wed 30-Mar-16 21:54:50

Aurora is nice enough. However, I agree, it's a bit hard to say! I do like the NN Rorie though smile

Love that Name.

Doesn't sound right with Naomi

I love the name Aurora and Rora rather than Rorie as a nickname. I think it goes fine with Naomi.

I know an Aurora & her mother never shortens it & hopes it never will be shortened.

Naomi & Aurora is a bit of a mouthful but it could go.

If you're bothered by the Disney connection, Aurelia could be an alternative.

UptownFlunk Thu 31-Mar-16 01:17:01

Came on to suggest Aurelia too. Much prettier than Aurora in my opinion.

Ugh my phone corrected

LemonLuLu Thu 31-Mar-16 11:54:39

Beautiful name and sounds absolutely fine with Naomi.

BushDiggle Thu 31-Mar-16 16:08:12

Too Disney for me!!! Sorry

MamaLazarou Thu 31-Mar-16 16:30:31

It sounds wishy-washy and faintly ridiculous to me.
