I voted [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Laura[/name] but I’m extremely biased as my name is [name]Laura[/name]. While there is a St. [name]Laura[/name], I’ve always taken St. [name]Lawrence[/name] as my patron. His is such a great story.

We seriously considered naming our second daughter [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Siena[/name] and I have at times wished we had gone that route…maybe I should change my vote.

I have to suggest [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] because my name is [name]Cathryn[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and I’ve always loved it. I voted for [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Michaela[/name] though. I love it as well. :slight_smile:

[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Laura[/name] is the only one I don’t care for simply because [name]Laura[/name], though pretty, seems like a fairly common contemporary girl’s name. The two together seem rather plain. [name]Michaela[/name] flows nicely and I love this spelling, but I might take all the [name]Mikayla[/name]/[name]Mackayla[/name]/[name]Makayla[/name]/[name]McKayla[/name], etc. kids into consideration if you are looking for something more unusual. [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Giselle[/name] and [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Siena[/name] are both bright, feminine, and pretty; I think those middles help make [name]Catherine[/name] (which I [name]LOVE[/name], but admit is a well-loved [and thus frequently used] classic) more interesting.

I voted for [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Laura[/name], but I also like:

[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Ivy[/name]
[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Julia[/name]
[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Iris[/name]
[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Violet[/name]

Thanks everyone. @lo -I love the story of St [name]Lawrence[/name] as well, I would probably tell her that story more than St [name]Laura[/name]'s.

[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Eve[/name] might also be nice.

I loved [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Eve[/name] in the past actually but now I have [name]Eva[/name] so it seems pointless to reuse it.

I will suggest [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]… because I’m a [name]Kathryn[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and love it as well!
