    Cora Belle

    What do you think? I threw it out to my husband this morning and much to my surprise he gave it a maybe! Too cutesy? Or absolutely adorable?

    I will say too cutesy because:
    1) both names are short and while I agree Cora can be used on its own, Belle needs longer form - Annabelle, Isabelle...
    2)Belle is terribly cutesy, to be honest. There are a lot of other names meaning "beautiful" but less popular. Think Bonnie
    3)Cora and Belle used together make me think of Clarabelle cow and it's not very pleasant, sorry.
    If I were you, I would keep Cora. It's a pretty name and though I love it more as a nickname, it works perfectly. Some similar ideas:
    Cora Annabelle
    Cora Isabelle
    Cora Astrid(Astrid means "beautiful")
    Cordelia Belle nn Cora
    Coralie Belle nn Cora
    Carolina Belle
    Cora Calliope(Calliope means "beautiful")
    Cordelia Bonnie nn Cora

    I love Cora! Belle is too cutesy for me personally, but I don't think it's bad. I just think you could name her Cora + something beautiful, and call her Corabelle as a term of endearment.

    Some fo my favorite Cora combos I've seen are Cora Lucille, Cora Madeleine, Cora Bellamy..... wait, there it is! Cora Bellamy nn Cora Belle?

    I like it as a full name like Corabelle instead of Cora Belle. I know a lot of people don't like -belle names because of the cow reference, but I'm 16 and never knew about the cow so I'm guessing your daughter and her friends won't have that association either. I love all Cora names - Cora, Coralie, Cordelia, etc
