Will Xara/Zara be the middle name?

I myself prefer the X because I hate the way scripted Z's look. Irrational yes, but that is my main reason for not using Z names.

I would pronounce both Xara and Zara the same way so I don't think prn would be an issue...especially if it is in the middle name position.

I think it's supposed to be the middle name. I like it with a Z, just so you can use the initial nickname JZ. But on second thought I think that's a rapper or something so maybe you wouldn't want to use that anyways. In which case I prefer the X.

I hate the way cursive Z's look too. Xara is better than 3ara.

I say the Z looks better for print purposes but I'll have to agree with the other ladies on the cursive Z's not exactly being pretty to look at haha!

Best of luck!

I prefer the Xara spelling....and I prefer Xara Jaiden to Jaiden Xara. But, then it would be cute for you to have a Zoie and Zara.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

I definitely prefer the Z spelling. X names always look awkward to me.
