    I agree with the other ladies that it depends on how you say it. If you rhyme Clara and Sarah, I wouldn't do it. If you say them differently, then I think it could work. I do agree with your daughter that Caroline works better purely because you've got three -ah ending names in a row (Sarah, Serena, Clara) while Caroline breaks it up a bit better.

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George

    Depends on pronunciation. (Is there an echo here?!!!)

    Clara = clah-ruh
    Sarah = sair-ruh

    That's fine.

    Clara = clair-uh
    Sarah = sair-uh

    That's not fine.

    I personally wouldn't do it, not because you have a Sarah,but because I think Sophie-Claire and Clara are too much. Caroline is gorgeous though. What happened to Susannah? Susannah Joy was the front runner wasn't it? I think thats beautiful too.

    While I love Clara, I think it is just a bit too rhyme-y with Sarah.

    Yes, Clara is lovely, but I couldn't bring myself to give my children names that rhyme.
