    Clara or Olympia?

    So torn between the 2.... my husband loves O and I have always preferred Clara tough I might be starting to feel that is a little bit simple and a bit too common? Husband last name is German, so C goes way better right? NN for C? Help needed ❤

    Personally, I much prefer Olympia -- unexpected and quirky, yet familiar. That said, Clara is lovely too (I am just drawn more toward the more unusual names myself is all).

    Definitely Olympia! Soft, pretty, and unique. I know several Claras, from babies to young adults. Plus it sounds a lot like Claire, which is also very popular

    This is tough because theyre so different yet so lovely

    Clara - familiar and more often used, but it's timeless, clear, bright and strong -pretty but tough, elegant but not frilly. I like it

    Olympia - more unique, yet easy to pronounce and say. It has flair and softness, grandeur and sweetness and the cute nn potential of Ollie, Pippa, Mimi, Mim, Pia and Pip!

    I went with Clara in the end but Olympia is fantastic too

    What about a mix of the two to make something truly unique?

    Voted Clara because it's lovely... classic and nice meaning. And yes if anything it does strike me as the German version of the Claire/Clare/Chiara family of names, but I think first and last names certainly don't have to match the same culture, in fact if the parents want to represent more than one culture then by all means. Olympia to me is unique and out there (I'm from the US).. makes me think Olympics and Mt. Olympus

    Olympia for me! I used to love Clara, though am not so enthused by the name anymore. Olympia is gorgeous and fresh though.

    Olympia for sure! I'm not a fan of Clara, it's always sounded cold and unfriendly to me. Olympia feels like a girl who's smart and spunky and confident, and it's a lot more unique than Clara.

    Typically I would prefer a more safe and traditional name but I love Olympia! I think it is a beautiful unique name. Clara is lovely as well but could easily confused with the Claires and Clares. If you want a nn, Olympia would also have more options. Hope this helps!
