    Question Coralie vs Coraline

    The title says it all... we love both of these names. I think we might end up calling her Cora, but I like the option of a longer, more feminine name. Cons for Coralie for me are that it feels a bit "made-up" to me, I feel like I am "forcing" the -lie on the end and I dont' want it be mistaken for a hyphenated name (cora-lee). Cons for Coraline are that it also feels a bit "made-up" and I think it will be forever confused with Caroline..... thoughts? Thanks so much!

    I prefer Coralie, but it sounds like you're unsure about both options. Why not name her Cora and choose a longer, more feminine middle name?

    I prefer Coralie, because I feel kt is timeless. Plus, Coraline always reminds me of that creepy cartoon movie. Best of luck.

    I prefer Coralie too, although I feel that (as southern.maple said) Cora with a longer nickname would be lovely as well. Good luck.

    I really like both actually.

    I think I'd probably pick Coralie if it came down to it.

    Just a suggestion, but are you super against the whole hyphenated/ first-middle thing? If you're going to call her Cora most of the time anyway, why not make her middle name Lee/Leigh and then you can sometimes call her Cora Leigh but have Cora as her birth certificate name.
