Honest thoughts on this combo?

I thought we felt decided but maybe I spoke too soon. The more my partner and I discuss names the more I realize how much meanings have played a part in our picking names in the past etc. We are really loving

[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Diana[/name_f]

Are the same sounding endings that awful? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you struggle to pronounce this name?

Please note, [name_f]Diana[/name_f] is an honor for my late mother. It’s a firm middle choice. I won’t/can’t use [name_f]Diane[/name_f] as an alternative for a few personal reasons, one being they are quite literally different people in my life. I really, really want to use [name_f]Diana[/name_f] as a middle.

I am loving [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] a lot and her meaning so much it’s growing on us. I’ll mention our last name “ruins” a lot of names and we have narrowed a LOT and done SO much name searching. I do appreciate honest opinions. Thank you!

I think it’s perfectly fine, both ending in -a doesn’t shock me in the slightest

It’s a very pretty name, so if you love it, just go for it.

I absolutely love it. The double -a isn’t a dealbreaker for me. [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Diana[/name_f] are both beautiful names with lovely meanings :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

It is a lovely choice and when I say it, [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Diana[/name_f] have a slightly different ending sound for the ‘a’. Perfectly useable!

Thank you for your thoughts!

[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Diana[/name_f] works for me and has grown on me since I first read it! It’s a charming and bright name

[name_f]Aurora[/name_f] [name_f]Diana[/name_f] is stunning. I would love to have this name. I actually love the double -a ending and I think it makes the combo sound so elegant.

[name_u]Alba[/name_u], [name_f]Roxana[/name_f], and [name_f]Zora[/name_f] also have “dawn” meanings.

I love it too! I don’t mind the repeating -a endings…it brings out the “n” in [name_f]Diana[/name_f] in a nice way.

I like it and I think the the double a endings actually work well! however I don’t know if it’s been mentioned yet but it feels a bit goddess-heavy because [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Diana[/name_f] are both goddesses in [name_m]Roman[/name_m] mythology — [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] is the goddess of the dawn (Roman equivalent of Eos) and [name_f]Diana[/name_f] is the goddess of the moon and the hunt (Roman equivalent of Artemis)

Sounds perfect, and it seems to have all the meaning in the world to you. Congrats!

Normally the same endings would be weird, but with this combo I actually don’t think it sounds bad. I think the different amounts of syllables helps.
