Cara (again...)

Sorry to repeat this again but I am having a really difficult time finding a middle name which I love which fits well with our top choice: [name]Cara[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] (car-a). The best I’ve come up with so far is [name]Cara[/name] [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] but it’s not quite right. Other names I like but I’m not sure flow that well as middles for [name]Cara[/name] are [name]Alice[/name], [name]Virginia[/name], [name]Lucinda[/name], [name]Daisy[/name], [name]Eve[/name], [name]Victoria[/name] and [name]Helen[/name]. The flow and sound of the names together is very important to me. Would really value your opinions and any suggestions of names which you think flow well in the middle and don’t end in a.

Thankyou [name]Rachel[/name]

Gosh I think [name]Cara[/name] [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] sounds lovely! And I am a tough critic! I do have to say for some reason car-a is a hard sound to fit with a middle name! Who knew! But it’s a great name so let’s give this a try.

Other options:
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Grace[/name] *fave
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Alexis[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Noelle[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Addison[/name] *fave
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Audrey[/name] *fave
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Rosaline[/name] (i thought perhaps [name]Rosalyn[/name] but i like the “line” sound better)

[name]Cara[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Seraphine[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Verity[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Madeleine[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Naomi[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Isolde[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Eloise[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Mireille[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]

missyby - thankyou! I do like the sound of [name]Cara[/name] [name]Felicity[/name] but [name]Felicity[/name] is just a little too much for my taste I think… I like the sound of [name]Cara[/name] [name]Grace[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] but do not like [name]Grace[/name] as a name unfortunately. hmm I do like [name]Rosalyn[/name]… [name]Cara[/name] [name]Rosalyn[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] or [name]Cara[/name] [name]Roselyn[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]… Quite like that one - thanks!

irisrose - I like the flow/sound of [name]Cara[/name] [name]Naomi[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] but again don’t really like either [name]Naomi[/name] or [name]Juliet[/name]… Why don’t the names I like sound good with it??? [name]Cara[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] is interesting… think I could be persuaded!

Any other ideas? [name]Rachel[/name] x

I posted these in the other thread in case you missed it since the board is not working properly sometime…

[name]Cara[/name] [name]Tatiana[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Natasha[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Lynn[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]


[name]Cara[/name] [name]Sage[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Phillipa[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]

For some reason I like having a long 4 syllable mn with “[name]Cara[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]”…

What about: [name]Cara[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]?

Best of luck!

Thankyou kulah - [name]Cara[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] is a possibilty… hmm not sure - will add that to the list for now - thanks. Really don’t like the sound of a middle name ending in a when paired with [name]Cara[/name] (the problem with most of my favourite names…!)

mom2bekatie - sorry don’t like [name]Elizabeth[/name].

Any other ideas? Thankyou [name]Rachel[/name]

Maybe you could list some of your fav names that you don’t think work with [name]Cara[/name] so maybe we can find alternatives or names of a similar style. I love [name]Cara[/name] by the way! My cousin had a baby [name]Cara[/name] earlier this year, [name]Cara[/name] [name]Nancy[/name] but [name]Nancy[/name] was after his grandmother.

[name]Hi[/name] [name]Laura[/name],

The list of names that I like is in the first post: [name]Eve[/name], [name]Virginia[/name], [name]Lucinda[/name], [name]Alice[/name], [name]Daisy[/name], [name]Victoria[/name] and [name]Helen[/name]. [name]Felicity[/name] is a little too fluffy for my taste but was the best compromise on flow etc we could come up with on our own!

Of other suggestions so far, I like [name]Cara[/name] [name]Rosalyn[/name]/[name]Roselyn[/name] [name]Matthews[/name], [name]Cara[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]. [name]Cara[/name] [name]Rosalyn[/name]/[name]Roselyn[/name] is the best so far but I’m still not convinced (sorry I know I’m frustrating - I’m driving my hub crazy…!).

I like the flow of [name]Cara[/name] [name]Naomi[/name], [name]Cara[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Madelyn[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] but I don’t like [name]Naomi[/name], [name]Juliet[/name] or [name]Madelyn[/name] as names…

I’d really appreciate any help you can give!
Thanks, [name]Rachel[/name]

Sorry, I did see your first post but I couldn’t quite work out your style from it and didn’t want to suggest things you’re not gonna like. So nothing too frilly and not ending in ‘a’. Hmmm. Ok let me see if I can help! (sorry for any repeats):

Let me know if any of those are close, if not I’ll try again :slight_smile: hehe.

Thankyou [name]Laura[/name]! Yay - you’ve come up with some I like!
[name]Cara[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] [name]Matthews[/name], [name]Cara[/name] [name]Briony[/name]/[name]Bryony[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] (can’t decide on the spelling…) and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]! Woohoo - they do exist! They still have to pass hub test though so if you have other ideas though I’d be glad of them!

Thankyou so much! [name]Rachel[/name] x

Hehe so glad some of them hit the spot! I also thought of [name]Cara[/name] [name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Bridget[/name] after I posted.

[name]How[/name] would you describe your name style? Vintage, exotic, classic, nature, unisex, sophisticated, short and sleek, etc? I’ll try and think of some more ideas!

Thanks. Not sure of [name]Ivy[/name] or [name]Bridget[/name].

Really don’t know if I have a naming style… My sons name is [name]Sidney[/name] [name]Warren[/name] (woh-ren) and here’s my boys name list which I’m very happy with if that helps you with style: [name]Morgan[/name] [name]Alexander[/name], [name]Tobias[/name] [name]Harvey[/name], [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Samuel[/name], [name]Oscar[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name] and [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Albert[/name]/[name]Alexander[/name]. I only do unisex names on boys though! Does that help at all?!

I suppose I like unfussy classic/vintage names but I’m not against more modern or those which are a bit unusual - sorry that doesn’t help much!

Thankyou for the help - really appreciate it! [name]Rachel[/name] x

I love [name]Cara[/name] and plan to use it one day, except as “CARE-uh” which I think isn’t your preferred pronunciation, am I right?
Unfortunately, I was going to suggest [name]Cara[/name] [name]Margaret[/name], which doesn’t work at all (imo) with “CAR-uh”. But perhaps it can inspire ome better ideas :slight_smile:

Thanks sylvr. yes we pronounce [name]Cara[/name] as car-a. [name]Ah[/name] I can see why people were suggesting margaret now! care-a margaret does sound good! Unfortunately car-a [name]Margaret[/name] doesn’t sound as great… think it’s the car-mar rhyming thing… [name]Rachel[/name]

[name]Love[/name] [name]Cara[/name] [name]Bryony[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] - Stunning name! I’d go with that one!

Best of luck, [name]Val[/name]

Still thinking! Lol.

Thanks [name]Laura[/name] - (you are wonderful btw!). I do like [name]Cara[/name] [name]Rosamund[/name].

I ran them all past my hub and he said no to them all except [name]Cara[/name] [name]Bryony[/name] which he really likes and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] which is apparently “ok”… So, thankyou so much for those suggestions! Which spelling do you think is best [name]Cara[/name] [name]Bryony[/name] [name]Matthews[/name] or [name]Cara[/name] [name]Briony[/name] [name]Matthews[/name]?

[name]Rachel[/name] x

Hmm I’m not sure, I tend to think [name]Bryony[/name] is more correct but I could be totally wrong on that one! Check what nameberry says about each spelling maybe?

I love [name]Cara[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Bryony[/name] by the way :slight_smile:

Also thought of [name]Cara[/name] [name]Lorelei[/name], [name]Cara[/name] [name]Tasmin[/name], [name]Cara[/name] [name]Tamsin[/name], [name]Cara[/name] [name]Delphine[/name] and [name]Cara[/name] [name]Angeline[/name]. I’ll stop now though cos I’m sure you have enough suggestions! Seems like [name]Bryony[/name] could be the one :slight_smile:

Good luck [name]Rachel[/name] :slight_smile:
