Do you like the name Claire?

We are having our third child, and I have a strong feeling that it is a girl. Our son’s name is [name]Brendan[/name] [name]Wesley[/name] and our daughter’s name is [name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Lauren[/name] (she goes by [name]Lauren[/name]). My husband, and I like the name [name]Claire[/name]. However, we are having a difficult time deciding on a middle name. [name]Do[/name] you like [name]Claire[/name]? Which combination do you like best?

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Harper[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Julia[/name] or [name]Julia[/name] [name]Claire[/name]

I adore the name [name]Claire[/name]! If my husband liked the name, I would use it in a heartbeat! I think it is stylish and sophisticated, and sounds great with [name]Brendan[/name] and [name]Lauren[/name].

I would go with a longer middle name to both balance out the 1-syllable name and to “match” the longer syllable names of her siblings. Some ideas:

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Valerie[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] Talulah (a little out there with your other kid’s names, but I thought it sounded fun!)

Sorry! I forgot to say that I loved your combo of [name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name]! That one gets my vote!

I like [name]Claire[/name], and goes well with [name]Alexandra[/name] and [name]Lauren[/name]. I prefer [name]Clara[/name] to [name]Claire[/name] by a tiny bit, but that’s just a personal opinion.

I second [name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name].

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Claire[/name]! I also [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Clara[/name], if that’s something you’d consider.
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Julia[/name] is pretty, but not as wonderful as [name]Julia[/name] [name]Claire[/name]!

From your list, I also love [name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name] and [name]Claire[/name] [name]Elise[/name]!
(I think [name]Claire[/name] [name]Elise[/name] is my favorite!)

Here are some other suggestions with [name]Claire[/name] or [name]Clara[/name] as the first name:

[name]Clara[/name] [name]Louise[/name]* (this is my favorite and it kind of sounds similar to [name]Claire[/name] [name]Elise[/name], but is a little bit softer)
[name]Clara[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Clara[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Simone[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Audrey[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Emmanuelle[/name]

I like [name]Claire[/name], I just don’t [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Claire[/name]…if that makes sense. I don’t think I’m in love with any 1 syllable name. I like a little more “meat” :slight_smile: LOL

I also wanted to point out that [name]Julia[/name] [name]Claire[/name] sounds a bit like [name]Jule[/name] Eclair… I think [name]Jill[/name] mentioned this once. The names just seem to run together. (PS- I like [name]Claire[/name] better than [name]Julia[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name] - Gets my vote :slight_smile:
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Harper[/name] - I think this one fits with your other children’s names the best.
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - I don’t like the bluntness of two, 1syllable names right next to eachother
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Elise[/name] - not bad, but I like [name]Eliza[/name] better :slight_smile:
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Julia[/name] or [name]Julia[/name] [name]Claire[/name] - okay, but [name]Madeline[/name] is better :slight_smile:

I love it, but [name]Brendan[/name] and [name]Lauren[/name] are more trendy and popular (especially a bit further back) whereas [name]Claire[/name] is a classic. I don’t know if they really fit. I think something like [name]Teagan[/name], [name]Shannon[/name], [name]Reagan[/name], [name]Adelyn[/name] would be better, personally…what about [name]Adelyn[/name] [name]Claire[/name]? Good luck!

I love [name]Claire[/name]! It’s really pretty. Of your choices, I like [name]Claire[/name] [name]Julia[/name] and [name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name], and [name]Julia[/name] [name]Claire[/name] is really gorgeous too.

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Leonora[/name]

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Valentina[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Viviana[/name]

We found out for sure that the baby is a GIRL!
We are going to name her [name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name]!

for me, [name]Claire[/name] is a middle name… i don’t think it really sounds right in the first name position…
however, [name]Claire[/name] [name]Elise[/name] is a beautiful name…

[name]Claire[/name] is very pretty…I like your combo of [name]Claire[/name] [name]Elise[/name] best (although I prefer [name]Elisa[/name]).

I love the name [name]Claire[/name].
