    I think it sounds okay...especially if you absolutely love Cora. I'd definitely give her a middle name that starts with a consonant though, like Delphine!

    Ok, thanks Mookai, thats good to know. Its a bit sing-songy with all the or-sounds but i can't decide whether or not that's a bad thing.

    Well, I love sing-songy names myself. They are fun to say! I have a good friend whose first and last names rhyme similarly and everyone loves it.
