Hi everyone,
Just wondering your thoughts on the name Zara? Older brother Ryan. Looking for a pretty name that is not overly common. Means 'princess' and Ryan means 'little king' so I thought that was cute!

I love the name Zara and it was our choice for a girls name before we found out DS3 was a boy. However it is comng popular with different spellings, that wouldn't stop us from using though if we did have a girl.

I LOVE IT and my DH dislikes it with a passion! I think its a beautiful name and if it has a nice ring to it when someone says the full name then go for it!

It's not bad. I wouldn't use it personally but that's because I can think of dozens of names I like more. The 2 meanings put together are quite special though.  original.gif

I love it and it was my pick for years and years before I even got pregnant.  Then...friends named their DD that and I felt I couldn't use it  sad.gif  Although having said that I now can't imagine DD as a Zara  wink.gif

Nice fit with the meanings of the two names too!

I love it. It is my DD's middle name. I did want it as a first name, but it was vetoed by DH.

Fantastic name.

#23 Madeline's Mum

Lovely name!

It is gaining in popularity but if that's not of concern then go for it.

#24 Gudrun

Posted 23 January 2013 - 05:23 PM

I like it well enough.  Bit too popular nowadays for me.  Neither Dame Zara (though that is long enough ago) nor the chain do too much for it.

However, there's nothing wrong with the name and it does team very well with Ryan.
