3 sons already, all of whom were named very easily.
Our DD is proving not to be as easy?
Shortlist (ish)

Iris (to popular?)
Mika (that annoying singer years ago?!)

Middle name will either be Morgan, Mary, Shea or Clementina. All have personals reasons as to why.

Opinions please- I can handle brutal.

Raya only sounds like half a name to me saraya/soraya (but raya is a name that's just what I think)
I like Iris, I like Honour.
Not sure about Mika. It's nice but yes it does remind me of the singer, but i imagine 2 seconds after meeting your baby I would associate with your baby.

I've never heard of a singer called Mika but to me it's a boys name (Micah, might be a biblical name actually).. despite that it could be kind of cool on a little girl, spelt your way.

Iris is lovely, met one in the playground the other day but she's the only kid I've ever come across. Agree with pp that Raya isn't great.

Honor is lovely

I actually really like Raya.
Like iris too but was worried it was becoming too popular also but it is very pretty.

Ordinarily Tue 21-Feb-17 21:15:59

My favourite would be Honor Clementina smile

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 21-Feb-17 21:30:41

Raya Clementina, lovely name OP.

Honor is a beautiful name although I do always wonder why it isn't Honour? My absolute favourite of the list though. I quite like Raya but wouldn't know if it was Ray-uh or Rye-uh. Just a thought. Iris is ok but sounds too much like Isis for me.

If you like Raya, would you like Freya?

Freya Clementina is so lovely

Thumperstopthumping Tue 21-Feb-17 22:32:30

baker it is Ray-uh. I've loved it since childhood and really is my top name but I worry it looks made up? I have only met a little Raya when I was a child myself! I have the same question about Honor, but would hate too cause her problems with adding a u!

bohemian I love Freya but I have a cousin Freya. She pronounces it Freh if that makes sense? Her mum is Norweigan.

Honor is fab

Baconsausageandegg Tue 21-Feb-17 22:39:23

I love raya ! If you're worried just name her soraya officially smile
Incase you want some more ideas ...
Elke (know one with a sister mika)

I'd go for honor Mary - spelt with no u is correct for the name in my opinion ! Honor Mary is gorgeous

SuperBeagle Tue 21-Feb-17 22:40:26

Honor Clemetina. smile

EggsEleven Tue 21-Feb-17 22:43:34

I dislike Rays and Mika.

Love Iris. Haven't met or heard of any so i don't think it's that popular though maybe depends on region.

Honor is nice.

Iris Mary
Honor Clementina.

I know a grown up Raya. Her dad us Egyptian and calls her sunshine. Raya Sunshine. He thinks it's hilarious! I like it because she's a very cool and kindhearted person.

Sophronia Wed 22-Feb-17 01:25:47

Iris Mary or Honor Clementina

I like Iris Morgan.

Just has a nice ring to it.

Jooni Wed 22-Feb-17 07:37:38

Honor! Great name and very fresh.

Iris is nice too.

INeedNewShoes Wed 22-Feb-17 07:41:42

I like Raya. I've never heard of it before now but it doesn't sound made up to me.

Raya Morgan would be lovely!

Sistafromanuthamista Wed 22-Feb-17 09:19:55

Second for Honor Clementina

Kazzawazza69 Wed 22-Feb-17 09:26:23

Raya Morgan is lovely x

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 22-Feb-17 09:45:45

Raya is lovely OP, it doesn't sound made up at all.
