    It bothers me because it's repetitive. I would use a middle that doesn't end in a.

    It depends on emphasis on the a and if there's enough contrast or balance not to clash together. Your two examples have just the right balance to flow together nicely. Anastasia has four a's breaking it up and your two middles break up into two syllables each so you've got a nice 4 and 4 rhythm going so it balances out.

    It doesn't bother me. I guess something that rhymed like Lara Cara would be a bit weird, but I don't think there's anything wrong with something like Lara Cordelia. But then, maybe I'm biased because almost every girl name I like ends in -a.

    Isa (Ee-sa) Mika'il ~ Sufian Iskandar ~ Idris Haroun ~ Ilias Mahdi (Ill-e-yas)

    Noora Yasmina ~ Hira Imani ~ Lana Safiya ~ Isra Sakina

    Adam (Ah-dum) | Haris (Hah-ris) | Musa | Nail (Nile) | Younus | Yusuf

    Aalia | Anah | Inara | Nahla | Saffah | Safina | Sana | Tziporah

    Most of these are Arabic/Muslim names.
