Which spelling of Laura/Lora is easier and which one do you prefer?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all

I have chosen to keep the name my parents gave me but I am not sure on the spelling. Either to keep the spelling [name_f]Laura[/name_f] or to change to [name_f]Lora[/name_f].

Which spelling would you choose?
Which spelling is easier to live with?
Which spelling goes better with the middle name [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]?

Thanks in advance.

[name_f]Laura[/name_f], for every criteria listed.

Definitely [name_f]Laura[/name_f], on all counts. Honestly, I think [name_f]Laura[/name_f] is the more recognizable of the two, which makes it the better choice.

[name_f]Laura[/name_f] for everything.

I prefer [name_f]Laura[/name_f]. To me it seems a lot more widely recognised than [name_f]Lora[/name_f]. [name_f]Laura[/name_f] [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] is a beautiful combination.

Definitely [name_f]Laura[/name_f]!

I like the look of [name_f]Lora[/name_f], but for convenience [name_f]Laura[/name_f] is better [name_f]IMO[/name_f]

I pronounce these names totally differently. I guess my recognition and spelling would be on if I heard"law-ra/lou(d)-ra" or if it was “lore-uh”!

Definitely [name_f]Laura[/name_f].

I would have to say [name_f]Laura[/name_f]!

[name_f]Laura[/name_f]. [name_f]Laura[/name_f] [name_f]Lucy[/name_f] is really nice, too.

[name_f]Laura[/name_f] is far more recognisable and would be much easier to live with than [name_f]Lora[/name_f], which would commonly be misspelled, I’d think.

I think that [name_f]Laura[/name_f] is by far the nicest of the two, and checks off all of the boxes for the questions you asked. It’s a lovely name, and I really like [name_f]Laura[/name_f] [name_f]Lucy[/name_f], it has a lovely lilt to it, and looks great written

[name_f]Laura[/name_f] 100%

[name_f]Laura[/name_f] for sure.

[name_f]Laura[/name_f] for everything :slight_smile: [name_f]Lara[/name_f] is my second favorite. I’d say only go with [name_f]Lora[/name_f] if you hate being called “lawra” ([name_f]Lara[/name_f]) over [name_f]Lora[/name_f], because I know Lauras that go by the pronunciations [name_f]Lara[/name_f] and [name_f]Lora[/name_f]. So tbh it probably depends on what you’re most worried about.

[name_f]Laura[/name_f] without question. [name_f]Lovely[/name_f] name!

[name_f]Laura[/name_f], for all

[name_f]Laura[/name_f] all the way.

[name_f]LAURA[/name_f], definitely.

I actually pronounce these names differently. I say [name_m]Law[/name_m]-ra for [name_f]Laura[/name_f] and [name_f]Lore[/name_f]-a for [name_f]Lora[/name_f]. I’m probably the minority in that, but perhaps it’s something to take into consideration?

I vastly prefer the [name_f]Laura[/name_f]. I do like the suggestion of [name_f]Lara[/name_f] though.
