    Zara & Sadie
    Zara & Sylvie
    Zara & Elodie
    Zara & Delphy
    Zara & Daphne

    I agree about Ivy, it's one of my faves, but Zara's best friend is named Ivy, so we immediately ruled it out. What are your thoughts on using a friend's name?

    My other faves are
    Cleo
    Luna
    Violet
    Noelle
    Lucia
    Matea

    Oh, genevie got some of my favorites: Mamie, Sosie, Phoebe, and Daphne. I think I would probably rule out the names of friends, too.

    I like Matea and Lucia with Zara.

    Weirdly enough, I was actually thinking about this earlier! I think it would depend on several factors, including age (a young child can lose touch with a best friend easily, whereas an old child is more likely to keep their best friend around for the long haul), the parents relationship with said best friend (i.e. it's more of a problem if you have the kid over all the time than if you've only seen them talking to your child in the playground), the area you live in (two Ivys in a small town might stick out like a sore thumb, but in a big city no one will notice), and the opinion of the child whose friend it actually is. Really, I think if you have an older child whose best friend is a close family friend and that child spends a lot of time with you and your family, then it's probably wise to avoid it. If not, I don't see why it should completely stop you from using the name - after all, if you'd named your daughter before the best friend came along, you wouldn't change your daughter's name just to avoid confusion!
