Sibling for Clara

Hello,

I haven’t got long to go now and I’m still stuck on sibling names for [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_f]Niamh[/name_f].

I often link Irish or [name_m]German[/name_m] linked names but it doesn’t have to be.
Names like [name_u]Dylan[/name_u], [name_m]Auley[/name_m], [name_u]Rory[/name_u] and [name_f]Bonnie[/name_f], [name_f]Heidi[/name_f], [name_f]Lena[/name_f] are on my list so far but I’m not 100% convinced by any.

This site really helped me choose [name_f]Clara[/name_f]’s name so I’m keeping my fingers crossed this time round!

Thank you

Connor is a good Irish name :slight_smile:

Daniel also evokes Irish imagery, but it’s very international at the same time. Alexander is another great option.

Leon, Finn, Hugo, Jonas, and especially Johann give me German/Eastern European vibes.

Girls’ names to go with Clara:

Anna
Anya
Annika
Erica
Julia
Lena
Laura
Saoirse
Maura
Heidi
Molly

I think you have a great short list to fall back on if no other names rise to the top. I’m intrigued by [name_m]Auley[/name_m] in particular, while I’m unfamiliar with the name itself it sounds rather charming. [name_f]Lena[/name_f] would be my choice of your girl options for its understated elegance and the cosy, vintage connection to [name_f]Clara[/name_f].

I’ll suggest: [name_f]Leah[/name_f], [name_f]Alice[/name_f], [name_f]Faye[/name_f], [name_u]Marie[/name_u], [name_f]Ada[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_f]Flora[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Leona[/name_f], [name_f]Ida[/name_f], [name_f]Nadine[/name_f], [name_f]Rosa[/name_f], [name_f]Liesel[/name_f], [name_f]Marina[/name_f], [name_f]Theda[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Veronica[/name_f], [name_f]Sabine[/name_f], [name_f]Zella[/name_f], [name_f]Therese[/name_f], [name_f]Saskia[/name_f], [name_u]Fiadh[/name_u], [name_f]Mairead[/name_f], [name_f]Riona[/name_f], [name_f]Nessa[/name_f]

Edmund, [name_m]Frederick[/name_m], [name_m]Julius[/name_m],[name_u]Toby[/name_u], [name_u]Flynn[/name_u], [name_u]Rudy[/name_u], [name_u]Axel[/name_u], [name_m]Matthias[/name_m], [name_m]Simon[/name_m], [name_m]Roland[/name_m], [name_u]Florian[/name_u], [name_m]Bastian[/name_m], [name_m]Oisin[/name_m], [name_m]Ronan[/name_m], [name_m]Tadhg[/name_m], [name_u]Shay[/name_u], [name_m]Padraig[/name_m], [name_u]Tiernan[/name_u]

Hello, I thought I’d quickly pop some names into the mix for you. For girls: [name_f]Jeanette[/name_f], [name_f]Annette[/name_f], [name_f]Caoimhe[/name_f], [name_f]Aoife[/name_f]. For boys: [name_u]Darragh[/name_u] and [name_u]Delaney[/name_u].

Oh, I love your daughter’s name! [name_f]Clara[/name_f] [name_f]Niamh[/name_f] is just beautiful.

Heidi & [name_f]Clara[/name_f] would be so sweet together – not sure how many people will notice that [name_f]Clara[/name_f] is the name of [name_f]Heidi[/name_f]’s friend in Heidi, but the connection might be worth considering. [name_f]Bonnie[/name_f] and [name_f]Lena[/name_f] also would work well for a sister. Other ideas based on those:
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Molly[/name_f]
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f]
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f]/Meabh
[name_f]Fiona[/name_f]
[name_f]Annie[/name_f]
[name_f]Rose[/name_f]
[name_f]Elina[/name_f]

Others with a [name_m]German[/name_m] bent, but a little lengthier:
[name_f]Anneliese[/name_f]
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f]
[name_f]Helena[/name_f]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f]

For a boy, maybe you’d consider these based on [name_u]Dylan[/name_u], [name_m]Auley[/name_m], & [name_u]Rory[/name_u]:
[name_u]Owen[/name_u]/Eoin
[name_m]Henry[/name_m]
[name_u]Finn[/name_u]
[name_u]Aidan[/name_u]
[name_u]Tristan[/name_u]
[name_m]Conall[/name_m]

Other ideas:
[name_m]Jonas[/name_m]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m]
[name_u]Julian[/name_u]
[name_m]Rafael[/name_m]
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]

Hope this could help! :slight_smile:

What about:

Helena (nickname [name_f]Lena[/name_f]?)
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Lucy[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f]

[name_m]Rupert[/name_m]

[name_u]Max[/name_u]

Hi there.

Clara [name_f]Niamh[/name_f] is so pretty! I love [name_u]Dylan[/name_u] as a brother for [name_f]Clara[/name_f]. It has such a beautiful artsy vibe to me. I’ve never heard [name_m]Auley[/name_m], but it’s really kind of fun. And [name_u]Rory[/name_u] is cute too, but just hard to say. [name_f]Lena[/name_f] is my favorite from your girl list. I’m not into [name_f]Bonnie[/name_f], but can certainly see the appeal. And something about [name_f]Heidi[/name_f] just sounds snobby to me for some reason.

Oh so many great suggestions! Thank you. This is such a helpful forum.

@elanorelle if it weren’t for that connection I think [name_f]Heidi[/name_f] would be top of my list! It’s only that [name_f]Clara[/name_f] is the somewhat weaker character in the story (I seem to remember her being described as the “invalid” in fact!) that puts me off!
