I adore the gentle elegant sound of Lara it's currently in the Top 100 for girls names and increasing in usage as are quite a few 2 syllable girl names starting L. I had a look and there's Lyla, Lola, Lily, Lucy, Lara, Lilly etc. I can't use Clara.

Lara is gorgeous, can you think of other elegant 2 syllable names for girls? Preferably not beginning with L or El.

What about Dalia/Dahlia?

Not 2 syllables but not quite 3 either, more of a schwa (the way I pronounce it) - dah-lya.

Sorry I misread the OP and thought you were looking for names beginning with L or EL blush.

What about Orla, Anja , Zara or Sasha?

Kara?

Agree Cora is nice, but a bit similar to Cara which I feel is very overused.

I adore Coral.

I know a Larissa nn Lara
Would something like this allow you to have Lara at home but full name can be used as an alternative for school etc?
