Ok so I think we are officially down to these two names! Our last name is DeMaranville and our first daughter's name is Navarra Rose. Any comments or suggestions you can provide would be SO helpful! Thanks!
FYI...Lara is pronounced LAR-RAH.

I vote for Vienna Grace! It goes well with Navarra Rose and both names seem equally uncommon with very popular (not to mention pretty) middle names. They compliment each other quite well.

There's nothing wrong with the name Lara, but here's something to think about depending on how you pronounce Navarra...My initial thought was to pronounce it Nah-Var-Rah which rhymes with Lar-Rah. If this is true, I wouldn't use Lara only because it sounds so similar to Navarra.You've found a unique name for your first daughter and to now use a similar sounding name, I feel it would take away from both of your daughter's names. My suggestion would be to make another interesting choice!

Here's one other name that came to mind...
Neah Grace (nee-ah)

Good luck and congrats!

Truffle Berry thanks so much for the reply! What you are saying makes perfect sense and I said the same thing to my husband. He doesn't care that Lara sounds so similar to Navarra but that is my biggest gripe with it. Neah is very pretty too! Sounds very similar to my first name....Mia! :-)

Vienna Grace is beautiful. I do agree that even though Lara is a great name, it is too close to your other daughter's. Your husband may not care, but will your daughters? In a few years, the confusion will really kick in and it could annoy them. I think because of your other daughter's name (which, by the way, is GORGEOUS!), Lara is more guilty pleasure list material. Stylistically, Vienna Grace does match better as well.

Thanks for the comments everyone! It has been very helpful to us and I have definitely decided on Vienna Grace as my top pick! Hopefully the hubby will agree once our little princess is born and its officially time to name her. Could be any day now...very excited! :-)
