Lyrica vs. What do you think?

What does everyone think of the name Lyrica? We are having a baby girl and would like to honor her godmother, Erica, by naming her after her. Erica has always been one of my favorite names, but I’d like to distinguish her name from her godmother’s. Any other suggestions? Middle name Suggestions?

Lyrica is ok but you could use Erica as your daughters middle name and she still would honor her godmother but would have her own name just the same.

I’m not really big on Lyrica. I don’t mind Lyric, and I love erica, but lyrica is just too much for me. you could always spell it with a ck or a k or use it as a mn? otherwise, i can only think of erela, enrica, aria. it means heather so you could use the name heather, or hadley which means heather field.

I think that the name Lyrica is very original and she will be the only one. Though I like the Erica too.
Combine them (or from another suggestion Aria.) Can be a good match.

Lyrica is a medication. Erica is a beautiful name, and is definitely underused. You could call her Erica, and have her middle name some form of godmother’s name.

I don’t mind it per se, but I would NEVER use it myself.

Jessica, Erica IS the godmother’s name. From everyone’s suggestions I like Emmica, I’ve also thought about naming her Erica and using a nickname that she could go by if she wants. Erie is out of the question because a family friend’s baby is named Arianna and I call her Aerie.

Lyrica sounds made up to me. I’d go with Erica either as the first or middle name.

Lyrica is totally a medication, I think it is for restless leg syndrome...could be’s fairly new. I definitely would not use this name, sorry.

Lyrica... sounds like lyric. You know, like music lyrics. Umm, I like the name Erica. If you would want to distinguish her from her godmother, use it as a middle name. :D:D

Well, we were thinking about Erica Madeline and maybe calling her Maddie?

Oops. :P I’m a blonde. Well Erica is still beautiful, so is Emmica. Good luck!

Lyrica is a medication. It’s for nerve problems and used to treat everything from seizures to nerve pain and fibromyalgia. It has a pretty sound, but so do Celexa and Zetia. If little Lyrica grows up to work up in the medical field, she’ll have people snickering about her name.

I would use Erica as a middle name if you want to name her after her godmother. Erica Madeline is pretty, but if you are going to call her Maddie, I think it’s far too confusing. Madeline Erica sounds almost as good and if you’re going to call her Maddie, I think Madeline should be the first name. Madeline is beautiful, though very popular, especially when shortened to Maddie.

Everyone doesn’t like the name Lyrica, but I love it. When I’m ready to have kids, that’s going to be the first or middle name of my daughter.
