I know I keep asking for Clara but we wanted to be sure and the popularity in the UK makes me rethink our choice.
Which do you like best Alba or Clara? DH is Spanish

Alba sounds like it could be a male name. I would go with Clara

Oh god alba is a television brand please don't do that to your child

Clara is lovely. Alba sounds very masculine but that's probably because I like Idris Elba and I would pronounce it the same way blush

Alba is the Gaelic name for Scotland.

Alba is Gaelic for Scotland - I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Clara. There is a radio brand called Alba. Don't like Alba at all.

Clara, love it.
Alba makes me think of Alberta hair shampoo.

I love Alba but I noticed it's the Welsh channel on sky and when Googled discovered it's also Gaelic. I just don't think I can be bothered to have to say, no I didn't name her after a TV channel, no I'm not Scottish, no I'm not Spanish, no I'm not a fan of Jessica Alba etc

Clara is so much better

Clara. The other name is horrid.

Meadows76 Thu 17-Nov-16 21:06:40

I love Alba but I noticed it's the Welsh channel on sky surely it's the Scottish channel hmm

I am Spanish and I prefer Alba to Clara. Alba is a lovely name in Spain but not sure if you live here

WellyMummy Thu 17-Nov-16 21:13:07

Clara, every time! But I am exceptionally biased.

Clara is lovely and elegant. Don't like Alba at all.
