    Red face Corinne or Holland?

    My husband and I want a name for our baby girl on the way that is not trendy and not popular. We like both these names: Corinne (2nd syllable pronounced "in") and Holland. Corinne's nickname would likely be Cora. Holland's nickname would likely be Holly. But I'd really like to focus on the full/proper name here. Which do you like better?

    Some middle name combinations are:

    Corinne Holland Grace
    Corinne Autumn Grace

    Holland Corinne Grace

    Our last name starts with "L".

    Thank you for your help! Maybe talking it out like this will help us choose

    My favorite is Corinne Autumn Grace, because I think it flows the best, but since you love the name Holland, I would do Corinne Holland Grace. I prefer Corinne as a first name over Holland because Holland will forever be associated with a location, whereas Corinne will more easily be associated with a person. The -land ending in Holland makes it decidedly a place rather than a girl. I do like the sound of the word, but I would recommend maybe Hollis instead of Holland if you wanted to go that route. Corinne is beautiful.

    ooo I know it's not one of your combo's but I LOVE Holland Autumn Grace, love love love. Holly is adorable and I would also argue that the short 'o' sound in Holly ages very well and makes a sophisticated nn for an adult woman too.

    I prefer Corinne. Holland is sweet but nowhere near as elegant or timeless as Corinne.
