We have managed to short list the below but would like to know your thoughts please or other suggestions. We have a 4 syllable surname so have been looking at shorter names. DH is Irish and favours Orla from the list below. Let me know what you think:

I love Orla and Ines. I also like áine.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 16-Jun-17 21:33:54

I love Iona.

Claudia and Rosa joint second.

Orla always changes itself to oral when I type it and that's what it makes me think of! Sorry op.

Orla or Maria.

Muumi3 Fri 16-Jun-17 22:31:38

I've always loved Iona, just don't think I'd be brave enough to use it

mummytobemaybe Fri 16-Jun-17 22:46:51

Orla, Eva and Rosa are my favourite

Fantastic list. I'd say Orla (once your accent lends itself to the name) or Claudia.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 16-Jun-17 23:01:26

Ines Diana
Maria Ines

blahthisistoohard Fri 16-Jun-17 23:30:41

What about Aoife as an alternative to Eva? I love that name but sadly we're not Irish enough to pull it off.

I like Rosa from your list as well

Ohmyfuck Fri 16-Jun-17 23:52:20

Orla is a beautiful name. X

rhodes2015 Sat 17-Jun-17 00:00:19

Orla is gorgeous!!

BlondeGinger Sat 17-Jun-17 00:02:25

Ines and Claudia are my favourites (Ines is one of my all time favourites) but I think I like Diana as a middle name too.

Orla sounds a bit strange when said by English people. I love Claudia from your list.
