Baby Name Poll Results
Clara vs. Hannah vs. Sarah
Or Hailey/Haley? Which name do you like? The middle name will be Anne or Paige. Which combo do you like?
The Top Baby Name is...
Love love love Clara Anne
Hannah, Hailey, and Sarah! Clara just sounds...very outdated and stodgy
Better to go with Paige, Anne is pretty, well, drab.
Hannah Paige / Clara Anne :)
I think Clara sounds fresh and elegant, and Anne sounds classic and sophisticated. Wouldn’t call either name outdated or drab!
Poster 5: I’m not trying to be rude! Poll poster, the As in Clara Anne run into each other. Might want to rethink that. Sorry, but Clara has not made a comeback. I honestly don’t think it will anytiome soon....but Hannah Paige, Sarah Paige, or Hailey Claire would be lovely! You could also go with Claire instead of Clara. Claire sounds so much more fresh and approachable than Clara
Clara is a classic! It’s never outdated! My friend just had her 4th baby girl and named her Clara. I’m happy the name is coming back! I completely agree with none of the names being outdated or drab. Anne is actually one of my favorite names and I love that you’re spelling it with an "e".
Another name similar to Clara: Claret (a color)
Yes, Clara is a rather underused classic. That’s what I meant; no offense to the poll poster or anyone else
Hannah Paige or Clara Paige! Gorgeous :)
Clara HAS made a comeback! The poll poster can name her baby girl anything she wants.
That doesn’t mean she can’t accept or at least be attentive to advice. Despite Clara’s comeback, it is still hard to see this name on anyone but a grumpy old lady. Again, not trying to be mean, I’m just giving a pointer
I saw it on a beautiful little baby girl and the name suits her perfectly! You say you’re not trying to be mean. If that’s true, then, maybe you could use a pointer and try to find a nicer way to say things.
I adore the name Clara and I think Clara Anne is gorgeous. Clara will age very well. I’ve met a some Claras who are younger than 50 and most of them were under 10 when I met them.
Claire is an okay name, but it’s more plain and dull than Clara.
"Lizi", no one is insulting your aunt’s name! I just warned the pollster that some names may be problematic b/c they are rather underused and have only recently returned. When a name is in such a state, then stereotypes like "old and stodgy" may prevail
Anne was never underused, though. I’ve been hearing it my whole life. I hear a lot of people are naming their children old-fashioned names. The old-fashioned names are definitely making a comeback around here. My friend had a baby named Lena. She loves old-fashioned names. Would you consider Lena being old and stodgy because it’s old-fashioned? Just curious, why did you put "" around my name?
Yeah, Anne was rather overused for a while. Maybe Lena would be stodgy, but the pollster should be aware of the consequences of Clara and Anne
So far, my friend hasn’t received any unkind comments about Lena’s name. Everyone keeps telling her how beautiful it is.
Even Clara’s mother keeps getting compliments on her baby’s name.
Clara is a beautiful name, and is making a comeback in the US at least. It’s been moving up the charts since the late ’90s. I’m not sure what "consequences" the pp is talking about.
You may not have heard any unkind comments-they could just be saying what the bearer wants to hear
Consequences like a dull image
Accroding to who? You? Just because you find it dull doesn’t mean other do.
Others may find it dull....better to be proactive instead of reactive
Not everyone will like the name you pick. I’m sure some people would find some of your chooses dull too.
If several people find it plain or there are vehement warnings about it, then it’s probably time to rethink
That’s the thing you are the only one who has said Clara is dull, so, obviously you are in the minority. It sounds like a personal problem to me.
Yeah, but I am vehement!
Because you don’t like the name it shouldn’t be use by other people? Wow, you sure think a lot of yourself.....
Clara is beautiful!!!!
Get over yourself ADedicatedNameologist! Obviously the op and several other people like the name Clara.
Well, of this poll, Hannah, Paige, and Sarah are better than Clara or Anne
And Hailey is better, too
Clara is very pretty and classy! GL!
You have made your point move on.
I;m very passionate in everything I do, not mean!
So I’m sorry if I sounded hurtful-I send my deepest apologies!
I agree that Clarissa is pretty and I agree that one person CAN make a difference. It is true, though, that a majority of us like Clara and find nothing wrong with it. It’s an underused classic so, if more people started using it, it wouldn’t be underused anymore. I’m glad that more people are starting to use it and even consider it.
I’m not being overbearing-just helpful! And vehement!
People should be passionate in what they do. I’m passionate about names, cooking/baking, raising my family, and other things, too. I accept your apology and I really think we should just stop the argument. People don’t create polls for others to argue on. We should have ended the argument a long time ago. I’m sorry I didn’t suggest this earlier.
Ah! Thanks, Lizi! Are you the poll poster?
No. I’m not the poll poster for this poll. I am for a different one.
If I was the poll poster for this one, I wouldn’t want people arguing on it. We should start considering poll posters’ feelings before we start arguing on their polls. I really should have said this earlier!
Well, I wasn’t aware that I sounded rude, so I’m sorry. VERY!
I have to admit that I, too, sometimes struggle with finding a nice way to say things. If I can’t find a nice way to say it, I worry about until I do or I don’t say anything. Apology accepted. I hope I didn’t sound rude to you and if I did, I’m sorry about that, too.
Trust me, it’s okay. Having ASD makes social activities SO HARD....
How does having ASD make social activities hard?
ASD stands for autism spectrum disorders
Oh. You’re autistic. I looked it up and what my search came up with was a congenital heart defect called an atrial septic defect.
I mean *septal defect. Oops!
I can understand how autism can make social life hard.
Yeah, I know about the heart defect, too...it’s creepy!!
My mother’s name, who was born in 1912, was Clara Amanda and my newphew in Kansas just had a baby girl and named her Clara. We are all thrilled!
