    I think we’re down to our final 2 names!
    Thea and Zara. Middle name will be Elizabeth after my granny (her due date is my granny’s 90th!)

    We both love both names, but ds is called Zachary, so not sure if we should avoid a 2nd Z?
    thoughts?

    Zachary and Zara sound cute together. :)

    Not keen on the name Thea at all! I think Thea Elizabeth doesn't flow. Ending one name with the same/very similar sound as the start of the next name always sounds weird.

    I much prefer Thea to Zara. I think Thea is a very pretty name and it goes lovely with Elizabeth.
    Also not sure on Zachery and Zara together xx

    It just shows that baby names really are individual and it doesn't matter at all what anyone else thinks. There's always going to be people who love and hate whatever you choose.

    Haha thanks ladies!

    I keep swaying between the 2, I have a friend that has 3 boys with the initial J though and I’m not keen so I do think it will end up being Thea. (Sorry @WinterWolf !)

    I loooooove Thea! It was on my list but the OH hated it! He has an annoying uncle called Theo, so I guess he didn't want the association.
    Zara is nice but it's quite common.
    But like the others said, it's a personal decision! Good luck!x

    I like both names and I think they both go nicely with Elizabeth. I would pick Thea though as I think it works much better with Zachery.

    I really like Zara Elizabeth and don’t think Thea works well with Elizabeth. Also Zara and Elizabeth are both royal family names which makes me think of them going together as a pair x
