[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I came across a name that we absolutely love and has stood out to us among the rest… [name_f]Alora[/name_f]! We love that it sounds so feminine and beautiful, is more of a modern name, but not too common or trendy and is easy to pronounce. The only thing that might be an issue is that my name is [name_f]Laura[/name_f]. Its not that we are trying to name her after me. They are two completely different names with different meanings, but obviously sound very similar, and so that might be confusing when someone calls us by one of our names. So I’m wondering if we could still keep the gorgeous name and have a nickname for her for family and friends to call her.
Our top name pick prior to this was [name_f]Lily[/name_f]. But we were worried that this name might be overused and too common. Especially now since [name_f]Meghan[/name_f] and [name_u]Harry[/name_u] just named their baby “Lili,” -we think the name will continue to be super popular. Which is why [name_f]Alora[/name_f] was so much more appealing. I still love the name [name_f]Lily[/name_f] so much that I would consider using it as a middle name… [name_f]Alora[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Do[/name_f] you have any suggestions as far as nicknames for [name_f]Alora[/name_f]? And maybe [name_f]Lily[/name_f] could be a possible nickname?
Lastly, her older sister’s nickname is [name_f]Maddie[/name_f] so we would want something cute that sounds good with it.
