Struggling a bit with this unexpected pregnancy in my 'old age', so focusing on names now for a bit of jolly, I need an L name, thoughts on Lara, Larissa, Laurel
Which sounds the least chavvy and will be the least common in the ensuing years?
Crystal balls out please.

Not fussed on any of those. I don't think they're chsvvy. Just not to my persona l taste.
Other L names. Laura. Laila. Liza. Larna. Lena. Leia.

*Laura
Also Loretta.

AliceKlar Thu 20-Apr-17 15:45:04

Lara, then Laurel out of your list. None are chavvy imo.

Also love: Leah/Leia, Lila, Laila, Lillian( Lili), Lucinda.

LiviaBC Thu 20-Apr-17 16:07:59

I like Lucinda too but it seems so so posh!

SumAndSubstance Thu 20-Apr-17 16:38:09

What about Lucy if you like Lucinda? I think Lucy is a lovely name, well-known but not very very common.

shaggedthruahedgebackwards Thu 20-Apr-17 16:40:37

Lucianne is another option?

Lucinda is absolutely lovely, not posh at all !
Your baby girl is worthy of any name.

AliceKlar Thu 20-Apr-17 18:39:36

Livia Lucinda is no posher than Larissa I don't think. If you like the name, I'd not let potential posh factor stop you using it. It can shortened to Lucy/Luci too if you like that.

vitaminC Thu 20-Apr-17 18:47:36

My favourite 'L' name is Lavinia, but I also love Lara and Louisa.

Mrsknackered Thu 20-Apr-17 18:55:49

I hate ' chavvy ' but none of them are what are generally classed as chavvy but I do think Larissa is so try hard.
I like Lara but quite a few about, I really like Laurel.
What about?

I like Laurel beat by far. I also like Lorelei and Lavender.

I'm not keen on Lucinda, but it definitely isn't posh (imo).

Rockaby Thu 20-Apr-17 19:04:45

Best by far*

Lara is my favourite (it's my DD!) - I also love Leia and like Lana, Larissa and quite like Lila and Lucy.

mathanxiety Fri 21-Apr-17 04:19:02

I love Laurel and Lara.
Larissa is too frilly for my taste.

Suggestions:
Lorna
Letitia

Leonie
Lilou
Lida

I believe there's a character on How to Get Away With Murder called Laurel... Previous to that, I wouldn't have been able to picture it on anyone under the age of 50.

If you like Lucinda but think it's too posh, maybe you'll like Lucille, Lucia or just Lucy?

Others:
- Lola
- Lily / Lillian / Liliana / Lilia
- Leia
- Leah / Lia
- Leonore / Leonora
- Louise / Louisa
- Liv
- Luna
- Lila
- Layla
- Lana
- Lottie

FWIW, I don't think Lucinda is "too posh". It's likely she'd have her name shortened anyway, and Lucy - or Cindy! - are much more "middle of the road" type names.

Linnet is such a beautiful name.

user1492757084 Fri 21-Apr-17 11:54:17

Llewella or Luella
Louise
Lisa
Laura
Lavinia
Lucy
Leah
Luciana
Lenore

LiviaBC Fri 21-Apr-17 14:55:12

Thanks everyone! Out of the list, I really like Lucienne and Laurel and Lucinda - I'm amazed and well chuffed that no one thinks of it as posh/snotty!

AliceKlar Fri 21-Apr-17 15:26:33

They're both gorgeous names Livia. Am a big fan of Lucinda. No idea why but just love it. It's unusual too without being wild and wacky and it won't date. It also has nn/shortening potential. Good luck with rest of your pregnancy and am sure whatever name you choose for your DD will suit her perfectly.

KoalaDownUnder Fri 21-Apr-17 15:33:56

Letitia is my favourite. I also love Layla and Lola.

Not a fan of Lara at all.

Lucinda is lovely! Go for that if you like it.
