What do you think of these names? I think they are v unusual but I quite like them after meeting people with both these names recently.

Prefer good old Audrey. Audra sounds like you got confused between (my baby has an) Aura and Audrey.

Adeline okay.

Audra is very nice.

Prefer Audra.

Audra and Audrey are nice. Don't like Adeline.

What about Ada or Phedra?

Is Audra made-up? Because if it is, it's the only name I've liked that isn't a 'proper' name! smile It's very dignified. I like.

(Unless...isn't it what the Speaker in The Commons has to shout? grin)

I'm a bit obsessed with the name Audra, but not sure if I have the guts to call new dd that ...
I met one once who was lovely, and the name flicks up when I'm watching Private Practice and taunts me!

Audrey is a lot nicer.

I was at school with an Audra, she was a huge pita.

That alone puts me off the name.

sugarpop Mon 20-Jul-09 15:19:31

Hm me too Fimbo maybe we were at the same school!

Fimbo Mon 20-Jul-09 15:20:12

Sugarpop - are you from Scotland by chance?

sugarpop Mon 20-Jul-09 15:21:59

Ah nope Yorkshire!

Fimbo Mon 20-Jul-09 15:27:24

Maybe she moved! grin

sugarpop Mon 20-Jul-09 15:28:57

Perhaps, though I reckon tis the name and most schools have one! Not biased or traumatised by the Audra experience at all! I'm sure she grew up to be lovely!
