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.

I like the first more than the second.

I like Audra a lot, I know of someone called that and have always thought it nice.

I really like Adeline. I'm not so keen on Audra although I think it's fine. One of the things I like about Adeline is that it doesn't end in an 'a' or a 'y'. I think it has a lot of poise. Great name for a grown-up, as well as a baby.

I like Audra to....i really like Audrina as well. Adeline sounds made up and i'm not keen...

I don't think Adeline is made up - there was a French one who kept marrying Johnny Halliday (I think, that she was also known as Doudou or something orrible that sounded like the dog did it - but no need to use that nn!). There seem to be two threads on this, as I said elsewhere Adeline okay - but wouldn't Adele be a more traditional version.

Adele was my fab gran so gets a massive thumbs up from me.

Of the 2 you originally asked about Audra is the best but then I know an Audra who rocks.

Audra is lovely. I liked this and Audrey too but DH vetoed both. thankfully we had a DS so it didn't matter!

How about Adelaide?

My grandma was named Adeline (they pronounced it Adelyne) after an opera singer called Dame Adelina Patty.

Well, seeker, I love Adelaide. Actually, I started at thread on here about it a while back but found that most people weren't keen and just associated it with the city. Still love it though.
Adeline is fine but not as good as Adelaide (Adele v nice too). Prefer Audrey to Audra.
