Corinne, Audrey, Camille, Elizabeth
Hi! We are still struggling with names. Each one Camille, Audrey, Elizabeth and Corinne has its positives and negatives.
Camille - Great nickname options (nn Mila, Cami), but Camila is in the top ten where I live. Not sure about the ending -meel sound either. A bit whiny?
Audrey - Love the way it sounds, but Aubrey when combined with Audrey is in the top ten as well. I am afraid she will always be correcting people that her name is Audrey, not Aubrey. No nickname either.
Elizabeth - Strong yet feminine but really popular. Lots of nickname options though. Kinda boring?
Corinne - Love the nn Cora, but not sure about Corinne. I would go just Cora, but my husband finds it too masculine and prefers Corinne though he doesn't love it. Definitely prefer the -in ending versus the -een.
Any help is deciding is greatly appreciated!

Elizabeth is a superb name--love the many nn options. Eliza's my favorite. I haven't met little-bitty Elizabeths for a few years, so I don't find it boring.
I've only ever seen Corinne with one R / two Ns and heard it as Cor-RIN. (Never heard Cor-EEN.) I love it--classic, a little unexpected in my neighborhood, very feminine. It got my vote.
I like Audrey and Camille as well.

Even though I love Camille, Audrey, and Elizabeth, it sounds like your biggest concern is popularity, in which case Corrine looks like the best option. However, I agree that Corrine isn't my favorite, even though I love the nn Cora.
What do you think of these names that could also have the nn Cora?
If you do end up using Corrine, I just wanted to make sure you know that the spelling Corinne is the more authentic one, if that's something you care about.

Elizabeth - I voted for she Never boring! So many fab nickname choices and it'll never be dated. Can't go wrong with a little Lizzie. Or Libby. Or Liz, Liza, Beth, Zabby, Izzy, Eli, Ellie...
Camille - I like very much. Not whiney at all, very pretty and I do like the nn Cam!
Audrey - Meh. It seems like such a drab, background kind of name. Nothing lively about it. Perhaps I feel this way becuase it's still dated on this side of the pond. Or perhaps because the 'aud' sound is quite blunt and dull to my ears.
Corinne - This would be #1 if pronounced with the -een ending. I never knew it was pronounced differently until the other day! I used to really like the name but the COR-in pronunciation makes me think of 'coffin' now :/
They're all essentially good names. Good luck with whichever you choose
