Two new favorites for me (Rory and Lara)

The first one I’ve liked for awhile, but was thinking about it today. It is [name]Rory[/name] (for a boy). What do you think of it? Two of my favorite combos are [name]Rory[/name] [name]Gabriel[/name] and [name]Rory[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]; WDYT (other ideas are welcome too)?

The new favorite is for a girl and one that I’ve liked off and on for awhile but has really grown on me as of late: [name]Lara[/name]. What do you think of it? I have no MN ideas for this name at this time; suggestions are welcome.

I love [name]Rory[/name]! I used to babysit twins, [name]Rory[/name] and [name]Bridget[/name], and they were sooo gorgeous so I have been influenced in a good way!

[name]Do[/name] you have any names with family significance that you could put in the middle? My brother’s name is [name]Michael[/name], so I love [name]Rory[/name] [name]Michael[/name]. But I also love your suggestion of [name]Rory[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name].

I think [name]Rory[/name] is a nice name. Between [name]Rory[/name] [name]Gabriel[/name] and [name]Rory[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name], I’m going to vote for [name]Rory[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] (I love it), because I think [name]Sebastian[/name] is more masculine than [name]Gabriel[/name] (it’s close to [name]Gabrielle[/name], and [name]Rory[/name] is unisex). I love both names, though!

I think [name]Lara[/name] is pretty, but depending on where you live, pronunciation issues may arise. (I’ve heard Lah-ra and Lair-a.)

[name]Rory[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Rory[/name] [name]Donovan[/name]
[name]Rory[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name]
[name]Rory[/name] [name]Sullivan[/name]
[name]Rory[/name] [name]Samuel[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Edited: I first thought you wrote [name]Lana[/name], but all is well now. :slight_smile:

[name]Love[/name] [name]Rory[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]!
[name]Lara[/name] is so pretty. Sounds like the [name]Lara[/name] in Dr. [name]Zhivago[/name]. I know two sisters who are half Polish and half American. Their names are [name]Veronika[/name] and [name]Lara[/name]. They are teenagers and incredibly pretty. I think [name]Lara[/name] is pronounced a little bit differently than [name]Laura[/name]. [name]LAW[/name]-rah.

I really like both of your names! For [name]Rory[/name] I prefer [name]Rory[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name], but both middle names sound great together! As for a middle name for [name]Lara[/name]… the first thing that popped into my mind was [name]Lara[/name] [name]Michelle[/name]… I’m not sure why, but I really like the way it sounds together! Some other sugguestions for a middle name are:
[name]Lara[/name] [name]Michelle[/name]
[name]Lara[/name] [name]Lynn[/name] (Not sure how you feel about double lettered beginings…)
[name]Lara[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Lara[/name] [name]Joy[/name]
[name]Hope[/name] this helps! Good luck and congratulations! Cheers!

I agree that [name]Rory[/name] [name]Gabriel[/name] may seem a little feminine. When you read it on paper, it takes a second to register that it isn’t a girl, [name]Rory[/name] [name]Gabrielle[/name]…
I have always liked the name [name]Rory[/name], though and almost was one myself!

Well I just love [name]Rory[/name], even though the [name]Gilmore[/name] Girls just pop into my mind and then again my older cousin is called rory too. And he is really a nice guy. As for [name]Lara[/name] well what can I say? It’s my name! I really like it! :slight_smile:

I really like them both! [name]Lara[/name] and variations of this name have also been on my mind.

[name]Rory[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] & [name]Rory[/name] [name]Donovan[/name] (suggested by [name]Jill[/name]) have my vote.
