    I was going to vote for Holly before I read your post now I definitely think Holly. Claire is my favorite middle name so I would choose Holly Claire. I do love Holly Marie though. πŸ™‚

    I’ve planned for years on naming my son after my grandfather, as we were very close. He passed over ten years ago so it’s not as “fresh” but I think it’s a sweet idea to name your daughter after someone close to you.

    That said, I’m not huge on Marie because it’s such a common middle name. How about Holly Kathryn? Holly Claire is cute, too.

    I think Holly Kathryn flows beautifully – maybe because I have a friend whose daughter is Holly Kathleen, so it sounds somewhat similar. I understand what you’re saying about Marie/Mary. It stinks when you love someone but not so much their name. πŸ™‚

    My favorite is Norah Claire or Norah Elizabeth.

    Lucia is beautiful but I don’t care for Lucie. If you want to use Holly, I would for a middle name but I dont think any of your names would work with Holly for middle name.

    I love Julia! Our favorite boys name starts with a J so I ruled it out but only for that reason. For Lucia, if you call her Lucy I cannot help but think of I Love Lucy, mainly because my mom and aunts always reference the show lol.

    I think Holly would be very sweet and as your daughter grows older you could tell her wonderful stories about the woman she was named after. But I do understand how that could be hard to name your child after someone you are still mourning.

    @78h2o:  I love the name Lainey. I think it’s so cute!

    I’m biased about Marie because that’s my middle name & I absolutely love it! My little girl’s middle name will be Marie as well.

    @78h2o:  I love the idea of naming her Holly. I know what a special person Holly was to you and I think that would be such an honor.  However, since you did say you were unsure and felt a little bittersweet, I voted for Norah.  Then I just read you don’t like Norah as much.  What was Holly’s middle name?

    I didn’t vote because I truly like all of them except for Lainey.

    I think naming your daughter after your friend is a sweet gesture, and Holly is a beautiful name! That probably takes my top vote if you’re able to handle it.

     

    Between Julia, Lucia and Norah I think Lucia is winning by just a smidge.
