Sister for Mara — The Bump
Baby Names

Sister for Mara

Im throwing out baby names to DH, as we have just started to try for baby #2. Our soon to be 4 year old daughter is Mara Noelle. 
We have a boy name we love (Callen, middle name likely Andrew or James) but are at a complete loss for girl names. We had no other options or considerations other than Mara last time :) 
What sounds good with this? We like names that are unique, but not unheard of.
Wide open to suggestions!

  • Thoughts on Lila? 
    Spelling choices: Lila, lilah, Lyla...
  • I know it's not a huge deal but personally I would try to find a name that doesn't end in 'a'. It's hard because there are so many good ones! But I loooove Astrid. And Bridget is awesome & goes well with Mara.

  • I like Lila, but don't love it with Mara. I wouldn't use 2 2 syllable names that end in a. Suggest Corrine Carys Ivy

  • I love the suggestion of Bridget. I think it's perfect with Mara. Suggest:

    Daphne
    Erin
    Collette
    Heidi 
    Eliza
    Helena
    Annie 

  • I like what others posted Astrid or Naomi with your Mara.  I am sure when the time comes the perfect name will pop up.  
  • Heidi is cute with Mara!

    Just show your husband the episode of The Office where Michael's ex-girlfriend names her baby Astrid. I can only hear it as ass turd now.

  • I don't really have suggestions, but I love Mara! Simple but different is absolutely what I look for in a name. 

    I like Lila, spelled that way. 
  • I love Eliza. DH isn't too sold :(
  • Thank you! We were so sold on Mara, I feel like I don't like any other girl name as well.

    Just to encourage you, myself and all my friends who are on their second child have this feeling. I think you just get so connected to thinking about your first pregnancy/child, and you are so much more familiar with that first name. It may not be as instant, but I'm sure once you connect a new face to a name you will fall in love with it.

    Thank you! This was really sweet! I know you're right, I'm just not there yet. Hopefully I will come up with something that's feels just as right as Mara the next time around. Thanks again for the encouragement...much needed!

  • I have never heard the name Mara, it's beautiful. PP have given a lot of good suggestions I just wanted to add Louisa, Leona, Irene, Annabelle, and Camille.
  • I do like Annabelle and I'm liking Eliza and Audra too. My husband is just so picky!
