Hi,
Following all of the positive responses to my last post and sitting on it for a week or so DH have finally decided that DD2 will be called Lara original.gif  DD1 continues to refer to her as "Baby Ari" so it looks like this may end up being her NN - time will tell!
Our surname is a fairly strong German name with 1 syllable so I have been looking into longer pretty family names that will compliment Lara. DH has vetoed Isabella, Elizabeth & Juliette but is coming around to Sophia. Lara Sophia just feels "right" to me IYKWIM but would I love to get some objective thoughts or suggestions...
Thanks  original.gif

Lara Sophie is fine. I dont know what your last name is so it will be Lara Sophie Blahblah and I think that sounds very nice

Lara Sophia is pretty but for something almost the same, I think Lara Sophie flows much nicer. Lara Juliette does sound gorgeous too, shame you can't use it.

Other suggestions:
Lara Imogen
Lara Charlotte
Lara Frances
Lara Claudette
Lara Adelaide
Lara Katherine
Lara Madeleine
Lara Bethany
Lara Phoebe
Lara Xanthe
Lara Emmeline
Lara Violet
Lara Josephine
Lara Annabelle
Lara Eloise
Lara Georgette
Lara Harriet
Lara Celeste
Lara Estelle
Lara Yasmin
Lara Maisie
Lara Natalie
Lara Emily

I think the double a sound at the end is not as nice as Laura Sophie as PP have suggested.

Lara Sophia is lovely, I don't have a problem with the two "a" endings.  Especially as you have a one syllable surname.

Personally I'd spell it Sofia, but that's a personal preference (Spanish influence here).

Thanks for your responses... Forgot to mention that SIL's dog is called Sophie which would be a bit weird  biggrin.gif plus Sophia is a family name

Lara Sophia flows perfectly and especially with a monosyllabic surname.

Well if you're worried about the dog then using Sophia is just as bad to me. I'm not sure why the names of pets worry people so much though? All all pets awful things or something to some people?

Not at all fifi, in my opinion it would be just as weird to use one of my niece's names for my baby or for another relative to use our dog's name for their little one - and our dog is part of the family!  original.gif I want to use a name on my side (hence Sophia) to honour a relative who is terminally ill and whom I am very close to.

Lara Sophie is a pretty name.I love Lara. It has been on my top 5 list for all 3 of my girls. And if we have a 4th it will probably be her name.

My DD2 shares the same first name of an old family pet. For some, it was strange at first, but everyone is used to it now.

Sophia is a lovely name - we have one in our family  original.gif

Lara Sophia is a great combo. I think it flows really well, and would be great with a one syllable surname!

I've been trying for days to figure out why the combination was bugging me and I finally got it.

One sound away from Yara Sofia of RuPaul's Drag Race.

In saying that, Yara is pretty awesome and obscure so it wouldn't necessarily put me off. Just took me awhile to figure out my issue!
