We're having a little girl this time around - yay! Our son's name is Liam Patrick and we are so torn between 2 names for our daughter. I need some honest objective opinions, please!
Option 1: Catherine Jane
Option 2: Claire Margaret
I love Catherine.
Claire is just meh for me.
Tough choice. I like both names a lot!
Claire has a slightly more feminine feel to it. Catherine is a little stronger.

I really like Claire Margaret .... that would be my vote. It's a name that's cute on a little girl and classic on an adult.
Catherine Jane flows well, but I'm not a huge fan of the name Catherine. I don't like the nn Cathy.&nbs
Mochadoodle:Both are great choices, but I love the name Catherine just a bit more. Liam and Cate pair nicely together, too. :
catherine jane flows better, but i like claire more than catherine.
my vote is for claire since she probably won't use her middle name that often anyway.
As the mom of Katherine I vote for Catherine Jane.
I also love Claire Margaret. Claire was on our list had DS been a girl.
As for nicknames, our DD goes by Kate most of the time. For the PP that mentioned Cathy, wha
