    Opinion on spelling

    I was just wondering opinions on the spelling of Cocoa. I love this version but I feel like people would always assume it is Coco. What do you think? Thanks!X

    Coco is a name, usually as a diminuitive for names beginning with "Co" like Colette or Cosette. Cocoa is a powder, a beverage and a colour among other things. There are cocoa beans, cocoa butter, cocoa puffs cereal and ...well, you get the picture. I would stick with Coco. Neither is my style but why make life more difficult for a daughter named Coco by spelling it differently?
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Ditto.

    I honestly think I would chuckle if I met someone whose name was spelled the same as the chocolate (I know I did when I saw this thread).
