    I googled it and I found Dorothea (or even Dorothy?) and Theodora which are nice too.

    What first names are you considering?  That might help us.

    Dora is sometimes a name on it’s own, other times it’s a nickname for Theodora, Adora, Pandora, or Dorothy (or like mandb122 said, Isadora)…so  you could use one of those.

    Or you could use a different form of Dora, like Doreen, Doralyn, Dorina, Dorilee.  

    Or maybe a name that is close to Dora, like Dara.

    Or you could choose a different name with the same meaing.  Dora means “gift” or “gift from God” so I’m guessing there might be other names with a similar meaning that you could use and still honor your Aunt.

    What about something like Dorene?  It doesn’t contain “Dora” exactly but has some similarity.

    For a boy it could be Dorian. Just an idea:) I actually new a girl that had the first name Dorian too.

    I think Isadora is very old fashioned but really, really beautiful.  🙂

    I like Dorian. It can be used for either a boy or a girl. I know women and men with that name.

    You have Leia listed as being pronounced the same as Leah, but isn’t it pronounced Lay-Ah, as in Princess Leia from Star Wars? For middle names I prefer Adora over Adoree.
