So if i finally concieve no2 lol, i really want to honour a deceased relative, My grandmothers name was Lola, and i had a great aunt whose full name was Sabra Valentine Pettitt. ( She was born 14th February 1882 hence the middle name.)

Anyway i get mixed reactions about both names. I really love Sabre, but our last name is Starmer, does Sabra Starmer sound too much, especially with Simon Starmer?

I know Lola is being used more now, but bad reactions i have had from people is that is sounds like a strippers name.

BTW Sabra is said as in Sabre tooth tiger.

Any thoughts.

If I had to pick from the two, I'd choose Lola. Maybe you can make one of the names her MN instead of the FN?

Best wishes!

I have a second cousin named Valentina - I think that form of the name is very pretty. What about Valentina Lola Starmer?

I love the name Lola - hubby said the same thing about it sounding like a stripper - but I have been in plenty of strip clubs, and can't recall any of the girls being named Lola Most of the girls I knew used stage names anyways.

Lola Valentina is pretty, as is Sabra Valentine, I think both are lovely, and Sabra is unusual as well.

I don't think Sabra is too much with Starmer. Lots of people stick with one letter in choosing names, and alliteration makes for a memorable name too.
