Amara, Mira, Amira...Myra?

I’ve been playing over a name combo that I could potentially use to honor my dad’s side of the family, including my beloved Aunt [name]Myra[/name] and my late grandmother [name]Geneva[/name].
The thing is, though, I’m not too keen on [name]Myra[/name]. It feels old to me. WDYT?
I really love the sound and meaning behind [name]Amara[/name], and it kind of plays off my name ([name]Marissa[/name]). But would [name]Mira[/name] or [name]Amira[/name] be closer to [name]Myra[/name]?
Also, as much as I love [name]Geneva[/name], I cannot use it because my grandma didn’t want a legacy. However, My dad actually cheated when he named my sister and took a roundabout, naming her [name]Genae[/name]. So I guess I could continue that “sneaky” way of honoring someone. :wink:

So here’s the options I’ve come up with:
[name]Amara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Mira[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Amira[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
and, in case I’m taking no round-abouts
[name]Myra[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]

Which do you like best?

[name]Amara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] is absolutely gorgeous, I love the combination. It seems like a lovely way to honour both family members whilst giving your little one her own name.

I know what you mean about [name]Myra[/name], I do think a variant is slightly more usable today. [name]Amira[/name] seems like a nice way to do it, but to me [name]Amara[/name] is just streaks ahead of the other options because it is such a striking name.

I agree! [name]Amara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] is wonderful! ( SO speaks a [name]Tamara[/name]! LOL)

The name [name]Amara[/name] seems to be ideal, as it offers a means of giving your child a link to both you and a beloved relative, and it has special meaning. It sounds like you prefer it over your other options. If you do decide to go in another direction, though, I think [name]Amira[/name] is a wonderful name that could pay tribute to your aunt (but doesn’t share much of a link to you). Also, I don’t think [name]Myra[/name] is too “old lady” at all, so if you prefer to go with [name]Myra[/name], do it!

I absolutely adore the mn [name]Genevieve[/name] as a tribute to [name]Geneva[/name]! [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name]!

I actually really like [name]Myra[/name]! It doesn’t sound old fashioned to me at all. I guess you think that because you know someone of that age.

For some reason, I’m not too keen on names that start with Am so don’t take my opinion on the names [name]Amara[/name] and [name]Amira[/name] since I’ll be biased.

[name]Amara[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] would be my first pick, but I also love [name]Mira[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Amira[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]. Good luck.

I actually think they are all wonderful options! However [name]Amara[/name] wins for me for the connection and the meaning, barely edging out [name]Amira[/name]. [name]Imogen[/name] could also be a way to honor [name]Geneva[/name], if you’re really wanting to be sneaky :wink:
