    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?
    Rosemary Una - Annabel Briar - Tabitha Lettice - Maude Evangeline - Fenella Pearl - Agnes Eilidh Rose
    names for dreamy, sublime little darlings. the smell of springtime air, freckled knees, damp hair. Soft evening light and fiery hearts.
    Emmett Kielder - Rufus Wilfred Jack - Cathal Nicholas - Eoghan Baez - Caspian Hugh - Alec Ivor

    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
