    Default WDYT of Lara?

    Hi,
    My husband and I are growing to love the name Lara for DD2 who is due in a couple of months time. What are your thoughts on this name? Her older sister has started calling her "Ari" which we think is lovely because we are keen for her to be involved in the naming process. Do you think the nickname "Ari" is a bit of a stretch for Lara?
    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

    Not at all a stretch especially if the nickname starts from big sis!

    Agreed

    Dd1 couldn't say dd2's name when she was little so she gave her a nickname (sounded similar to her name) now all family & friends call dd2 buy her nickname

    I think it's lovely, not a huge stretch at all. If people ask just let them know it came from her big sis.

    I like it. My DD1 gave DD2 a nickname that is not in any way like her name and most of us use the nickname now because it is cute

    I like it. And the nickname isn't too far stretched, especially coming from dd1

    Lara is lovely and has a lot of class because of the Doctor Zhivago link.

    Ari is cute, too.
