My daughter is Clara Beatrix. It was the only name I wanted, but my husband was iffy on the Beatrix, so I did come up with alternates. He eventually caved on the Beatrix, though. :D
I have my own Clara, so I am biased, but I do not like the name Flora for two reasons. Like some PPs, I associate it with Floor and also with flora/fauna.
For my own Clara, I like the nickname...

Our family was completed on July 15, 2013 when Clara Beatrix joined her sister, Phaedra Noemi (nn Phae), and my stepdaughters, Xandra Mae and Malanie.
We're in love! :-)

Phaedra is my favorite! :-)

By the way, thanks for the compliments on Phaedra Noemi. :p

He hates Delphine and Lucretia. Ugh! The others he's going to look at on the list but I don't hold out much hope. He mentioned Sophia again as a mn. Wahhh. I like the name (I really do) but it's just...

Thanks for all the responses so far! I love them!

I am in need of a middle name for Clara ____ Pagan.
I have to rule out A or O names because I don't want CAP or COP as her initials.
I tend toward real names that are not hugely popular. My...

I love the name Phaedra and have since I was 12 and met someone with the name. I held on to it for 23 years and this last May named my first child Phaedra. I think it fits my daughter well, I love...

My husband has two girls (Xandra and Malanie) and we have a new baby girl (Phaedra), my first. If the next is a girl, she will be Clara, which is my grandmother's middle name. I am stuck on a middle...
