Middle names for Zara

(24 Posts)

Zara is our current front runner for our daughter due in spring, my other half isn't fussed on middle names so I have pretty much free reign here! My current middle name choices are Penelope or Morgan as these were names I liked for a first name but my other half wasn't keen. I like nature names and names that have a nice meaning, or anything to do with Spring as that's when she'll be born!
Would greatly appreciate any inspiration please!!

I’d be tempted with another Z name! I love alliterative names, and the Zs would be very distinctive.

Zara Zoe

Zoe means “life” in Greek.

I know Rose is overused as a middle name generally but it sounds lovely with Zara.

Zara Penelope works really well. Think you need something longer as it’s short and light. Springish names -

Zara Persephone (goddess of grain)
Zara Aurora (dawn)
Zara Aurelia (golden)
Zara Anastasia (resurrection/ Easter)

Thank you everyone, some really beautiful suggestions I'll definitely be considering along with Penelope which seems like a popular choice!

I thought Penelope before I even clicked on the thread and I never do baby name threads. Do it!!

I love Zara Penelope. It flows beautifully.

Zara Penelope is lovely! Flows lerfectly and seems classy and beautiful. Morgan isn't very nice... Seems very dated and i think using it would spoil the name. Zara Rose is way too much of a mouthful. I tried to think of more suggestions but can't think of anything which sounds nicer than Penelope.
