We seriously can’t decide. Torn right down the middle. The middle name will be [name]Elisabeth[/name] (a family name). But we go back and forth.
We lean toward [name]Clara[/name] because it feels a bit rarer, and also my wife thinks it’s a bit more “petite” though we can’t explain why we think that.
But then we consider that [name]Clara[/name] will be abbreviated to “[name]Claire[/name]” in conversation, so do we just skip the abbreviation?
No idea. We probably can’t go wrong.
Oh, and she’s probably going to be born in the next three hours, so if anyone has any thoughts, now’s the time.
