Coral is my favorite by far! I think it's just brighter & more modern feeling than the rest. Coralie & Coraline are about equal in my mind. They're pretty but somehow stuffier & very old timey to me- which is on trend & might be more your style, which is fine. Cora is my leasr favorite & just the same as Corie to me.
In my mind...Cora is at the mall, Coralie & Coraline are in a parlor with flowery wallpaper & fainting couches while Coral is exploring in the woods.
Cora and Coralie :)
My husband has always loved the name Alie and it would certainly be a nod to my childhood friend, Alyson. Both of us are drawn to Rosalie-- however, in my opinion, Rose and its variants are just too overused for me to consider it a middle option (like the Marie's and Lynn's of my generation, although my husband wouldn't agree). Adding Cora only makes perfect sense, as Downton Abbey is one of our great loves.
Kinda shirked away from Coralie for a while though, simply because of the meaning. I suppose the beach is growing on me since moving to NJ with my husband, but even at that, there are so many 'attributes' I would love to instill in my daughter through her name! If i were an avid scuba diver, had a caribbean honeymoon or even fond childhood memories at the ocean, etc, it would be personal, but in my situation, "coral" just doesn't seem substantial enough, not fully satisfying... But then again, I seem to have found other associations and I'm definitely considering it as a middle to fn choice Nadia. Coralie accents the unique beauty of Nadia, not over powering it, and bringing that classic, old-fashoined Victorian flare to her. Nadia Corinne nor Nadia Clarice (one of my favorites!!!) seem to fit the bill, as Nadia Coralie does...what do you think?
I just can't seem to rule it out; I find it so very lovely and appealing
Coralie holds a soft spot in my heart. I love this name. I had it on my list forever, but decided to go with another name after some serious negotiations with DH.
I've always loved Cora and like the purity and simplicity of it compared to your other choices.
I love, love, LOVE Coralie!!! It has been on my list for years, and now that we just found out that I'm pregnant, it's one of our top four options for a girl. :) To me Coralie has it all - a beautiful girly name with the options of the fun nn's Cora or Coral. Coraline is also really pretty, and I considered adding this to our list, but I worry that it will always be misheard for Caroline. So my vote is for Coralie!!! :)
