Clara or Maeve?
I am expecting a baby girl in thirteen weeks but can't decide between Clara (pronounced Clair-ah) or Maeve. I really like how both names are sweet and simple. Clara is my great grandmother's name, and I would name her Clara June or Clara Mary. I've always loved Maeve, but I am afraid she will spend her life correcting people on the spelling and pronounciation. Whenever I bring up the name to family or friends, people always ask me if I mean Mavis, which I dislike. If I went with Maeve, we would name her Maeve Elizabeth. What do you think? It's such a big responsibility to choose a name!

I don't like Clara Mary because of the repeated "air" sound, but Clara June is precious! Maeve Elizabeth is also gorgeous, and while you might have some problems with pronunciation, she would have plenty of nickname options, from Mae/May to all the ones from Elizabeth. I don't think it would be much of an issue, though? I do personally prefer Clara, but go with your heart. And congratulations!

Clara June and Maeve Elizabeth are both excellent choices! Totally torn between these two choices. (Clara Mary is a bit repetitive so I prefer June in the middle here.)
I suppose the family name has a slight edge, but if it helps any, I know two Maeve's (one 5-ish and one 30-something), and neither has trouble with their name. Is Clara Maeve (or Maeva Claire) an option?Amara Beatrice | Esme Cordelia | Gwyneth Hazel | Madeleine Vesper | Margot Elspeth | Olive Kerensa | Phoebe Matilda | Sylvie Marigold | Willa Rosemary | Zara Emmeline | Archer Nathaniel | Callum Jude | Emmett Frost | Griffin Wilder | Julian Emrys | Leo Sebastian | Milo Vincent | Lucian Mateo | Rhys Donovan | Thorin Jasper
