Sister for Cora
Hi folks. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to posting but spent countless hours scouring this website during my last pregnancy! We named DD1 Cora which I had always loved and which I managed to sell to my initially unsure DH in the basis that it is old fashioned yet uncommon. I am now expecting again and struggling to find a girls name I love as much as Cora. I would like something of a similar vintage but without being too popular. So far I have come up with Elise (DH vetoed), Ella (works well as derived from both granny's names but getting quite popular) and Emmie/Emme (ticks both the old fashioned and uncommon (in my country) boxes but wonder whether it is too cutesy. All thoughts/suggestions welcomed!
I LOVE the name Cora. Some suggestions are...
Jane (nn Janie)
Josephine (nn Josie)
Elizabeth (several nicknames - I prefer Betsy)
Thanks! I love Lila but DH not convinced (Cora's middle name is Lily so maybe too close to that anyway). Really like Elizabeth but would prefer fewer syllables.
Cora and Pearl is just so sweet!
What do you think of Eliza? Shortens Elizabeth and I think gives it the same quirky spunk that Cora has.
I like The name Emmie, it is a bit cutsey, and nicknamey but if you like that then you shouldn't let it worry or bug you.
Vera? Too similar? And I LOVE Cora and Emme
Love Eliza but again DH not a fan. Considered Elsie but I'm a big musical theatre fan and can't get the Cabaret reference out of my head!! Alice is lovely too.
I think Emmie is adorable! It could be short for Emmeline if you are afraid it is too cutesy.
Others based on your list:
Rosalie (Cora and Rose would be cute)
Clara (maybe too close to Cora)
Catalina/Katerina/anything else that can nn Kate/Cate - Cora and Kate would be adorable!
