    Orla

    Hello,

    I'd like to hear some opinions on the name Orla.

    I'm due in less than 2 weeks and thought we had decided on Marguerite... but I'm getting cold feet. I'm worried Marguerite is a bit long and fussy and will always be shortened.

    My husband is Irish and we have an Irish surname which really compliments Orla.

    What do you think of Orla Marguerite?

    Thanks!

    I like Orla with a brogue. My only concern for the name is that anyone who is dyslexic (or childish) will read it as "Oral"

    I think Marguerite is lovely long, short, or any which way.

    Orla is so lovely. Orla Marguerite is a great combo. And I love the young singer Orla Gartland as well

    Love Marguerite, but Orla is strange to me. The 'Or' part suggests an option...I guess it just confuses me, but if I knew people with the name, I might like it.
