    Inara vs Ostara

    Title says it all really, I'm curious which one between Inara and Ostara people generally prefer.
    I love them both, love that they're both goddess names, love the Pagan assoication Ostara has, and the more nerdy association Inara has.
    I'd love to hear what imagery they both conjure up for you, and how usable they would be in real life.
    Thank you!

    I'm so sorry I'm not gonna be of any help because this is one of those rare times where I literally can not choose. It doesn't happen often but these two names are just so gorgeous that it's really making it difficult to pick one.

    May I offer more information in exchange for my inability to choose?

    Ostara's alternative name is Ēostre. She was the Germanic Goddess of Spring. I've also seen her represented as the Goddess of Dawn. Ostara's numerology numbers are 2 (Destiny) 8 (Heart's Desire) & 3 (Personality).

    Inara, a Quranic name means "Illumination/Light/Radiance" ; "the bringer of light into darkness" and of course as you know, will forever be a classic name in the Sci-Fi community because of it's association with Firefly. Inara's numerology numbers are 7 (Destiny) 11 (Heart's Desire) & 5 (Personality).

    Inara is lovely! I think of rushing water, starry nights, forests and ink

    There's a proprietary technology in my industry that goes by Ostara, so I vote for Inara (also love Firefly). Definitely not something most people would know of though! LOL

    I like Inara because Ostara reminds me of Ostriches.

    May I suggest Judice as a middle name

    Wow, a fairly unanimous decision in favour of Inara! Thanks so much, Ostara will stay on my list but as a GP instead.
    Thanks for your help!

    @serpentialia thanks for all that extra info, I son't really know what numerology numbers mean but will definitely look into it!

    @greyblue that imagery is just gorgeous! Thanks so much!

    @tfzolghadr Yes! Inara George has such a beautiful voice!
