How bad is it?
I've really loved the name Aurora for the longest time, but in the past several years I've felt it was unusable thanks to how "R" heavy my surname is. However, a good friend of mine keeps insisting that Aurora with my surname is just fine. I love the idea of a little Aurora, and I love the nn Ari.
Tell it to me straight--how bad is Aurora R!ch@rds?
Thanks, ladies!Ashley | namenerd | Christian | storyteller

I voted that it was "fine" because I too LOVE Aurora. (I also have an R heavy LN and it's never been an issue I've considered).
I'm not psyched that it's made it's way above the 200 line but you know at 183 I probably shouldn't be worrying about it too much.
Also I'm nowhere near naming a child so I probably shouldn't worry about ranking too much right now.
currently my favorite nn's are Rory, and Ora.Little Lorelei - May 2016Endora - Freya - Merida - Viola - Zelda

I think it's too heavy on the r's. The sound of Aurora Richards reminds me of the late Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner imitating journalist Barbara Wawa (aka Barbara Walters). Sorry but when I saw the name and pronounced it out loud for the first time that's the image that came to mind! When I said it about five times, my tongue was tripping up and I ended up sounding like lispy Elmer Fudd. All of the r's became w's!All the best,

I think it actually sounds quite great together, the Rs are complimentary in both names, imo.Nathaniel . Eden | Alessandra . Noel
