    variations on Laura

    I would love to name our baby after my husband's grandmother Laura, but our last name rhymes with Laura. I would love some suggestions for variants of Laura that don't rhyme.

    Thanks!
    Amy

    I absolutely love Lara. What about...
    Laurel
    Lauren
    Lorinda
    Loretta
    Lorelei

    Laura means 'Bay Laurel' so what about Bay?

    Loretta is my absolute favorite version of Laura, and is the farthest from rhyming with Laura, and I assume your last name.

    Maybe consider a middle if nothing seems right. Best of luck!

    My mom's name is Laurette.

    What about:

    I am not sure what your surname is, so some of these names may rhyme with it more than others and I apologize for any repeats:

    Laurence
    Lori
    Lorraine
    Lorena
    Loriana
    Laraine
    Larissa
    Larisa
    Laurentia
    Laurenzia
    Laureen
