My husband and I can't agree on a name for our soon to be arriving baby girl. Emily or Clara? Please give us your opinions!

I like them both as well, but I would choose Clara. I love the meaning and the look of it.

Clara is a lot less popular though if that makes any difference to you. Emily was the 3rd most used name and Clara was #206.

I also LOVE Claire so any name that could have Claire as a nn would be my choice.

Good luck on deciding

I prefer Clara over Emily. It would also depend on the mn.

looks like I'm in the minority, I prefer Emily. However I agree with some other girls, it depends on the middle name.

we most probably will be using both of our last names on the baby so we'll only give her one name. I find three names to be enough.

I like Clara, Emily is too popular/overdone in my opinion
