Having a hard time trying to choose one for DD middle name will be Poppy or Serena probably Lucy Serena, Lara Poppy. Which do you prefer?

For Lara will be Lara Poppy Imogen actually which I forgot to add!!

Lara, by miles.

I really like Serena - would you consider that for a first name? Otherwise I think I prefer Lucy.

Lucy Serena is lovely

It's Lucy for me.

Not particularly fond of the tomb raider, do you think that's an issue?
Mini, we really like Serena but as a mn for Lucy.

Love Lucy Serena

Lucy & lara are both lovely but Lucy serena got a nicer ring to it than Lara poppy for me

DiegoMadonna Tue 05-Dec-17 11:03:46

Regardless of middle name, I prefer Lucy.

I prefer lucy, I considered both lara and lucy for dd and decided on lucy.

Lucy is better in my own opinion. Lara is also good but it should have a middle name.

Callamia Tue 05-Dec-17 11:14:45

It’s the sort of name that makes me think of a smart capable girl. I wanted to use it, but I have boys instead.

FrancisCrawford Tue 05-Dec-17 11:36:53

Lara is so gorgeous

Debby08 Tue 05-Dec-17 11:38:58

My vote is for Lara!

TonicAndTonic Tue 05-Dec-17 11:39:44

Lara is lovely. For me Lucy is a bit twee, but not awful.

Laska5772 Tue 05-Dec-17 11:42:41

Not your request for a choice but have you thought of Lucille rather than Lucy ?

ElfrideSwancourt Tue 05-Dec-17 12:03:34

Lara is a bit 80s, but maybe I'm biased because I have a Lucysmile

HuskyMcClusky Tue 05-Dec-17 12:09:44

Lucy Serena

Lara is mega-80s, like Tara or Lauren. I don’t like it at all.

AnyaMoondial Tue 05-Dec-17 12:18:57

Lucy Serena is beautiful.

I prefer Lucy. It seems quite unusual at the moment (in a good way). Lara seems too much like a lot of other names (Lola, Lyra etc.)
