    I think Emmie is adorable! If you're worried about it being to cutesy, you could always make it a nickname for a longer Em- name! Like Emmeline, Emilia or Emmanuelle.

    From you new short list, Ivy and Georgia are definitely my favourites!

    Some other options that fit with Cora:

    Pearl
    Eliza
    Eleanor
    Hazel
    Lillian
    Lilith
    Eve
    Cecily
    Clarissa
    Edith
    Winifred

    Once again, thank you for all of your help and lovely suggestions. Still not entirely there but DH seems to like Esme, Emmie and Ella best so huge progress! Have the same middle name dilemma as last time - really want to honour my grandmother who is Jean but not a massive fan of the name (neither is she!). Will probably just stick with it but any clever ideas welcomed!

    Esme Jean sounds quite lovely to me actually! My grandmother was Jean so i have a soft-spot for it. Or maybe a variation of Jean like Jane, Jeanne or Johanna?

    Update! Husband unfortunately went off Esme . After a long impasse we are back to Emmie/Emmy or Ella. Ella is quite popular where I live whereas Emmie/Emmy is almost unheard of, which is a positive for me (as Cora is also pretty uncommon here). Still have slight reservations over whether it works on an adult though but don't want to give her a formal name I will never use. Thoughts on the best spelling to use to avoid sounding too cutesy?

    Cora and Emma nn Emmie would work. Some full names for Emmie/Emmy/Emme are;

    Emma
    Emily
    Emmeline
    Clementine
    Emilia


    I think the best stand alone spelling of the name would be Emme. Not too childish in appearance, so it would work on an adult, but also, not too grown up.


    Emme Olivia
    Emme Kaylee (I know a little girl named Emmy-Kaylee)
    Emme Danielle
    Emme Celeste * (definitely a favourite!)
    Emme Arabella
    Emme Evangeline
    Emme Violet
    Emme Blossom
    Emme Bluebelle
    Emme Isabelle
    Emme Victoria


    Good Luck! x
