    Cora Shane? Cora Shaynee?

    I would really like to honor my sister named Shaynee in our daughter's name (due in November). Her first name will be Cora and I'm wondering what sounds better, Cora Shane or Cora Shaynee. Neither one would necessarily be my first choice if I were just picking a MN I loved with Cora, but my sister is very important to me and I would love to honor her. Would love to get all of your thoughts on these two options (and if you can think of a better way to honor a Shaynee please let me know!)

    I don't love either of the options, but Cora Shay popped into my head and I'm loving it!

    I love Cora Shane (though I'd spell it Shayne). Cora Shaynee could work as long as your last name isn't a "2 syllable/stress on the first syllable" name.
    And I agree with the previous posters - Shay is a good alternative if you like it.
    Btw, your parents are awesome. Shaynie was a pick of mine for a long time, but it sounds wretched with my married last name.
