Cora vs. Eloise
I'm due in 2 weeks and still trying to finalize a girls name. So far we think we've narrowed it down to either:
Eloise Elizabeth (nn would be Elise)
We're also considering Coralie Linda in an attempt to try and incorporate my mothers name (Linda)
I would really appreciate people opinions on first which first name they like the best and any suggestions for middle names as well. Thank you!!

Cora Adeline — I try to stay away from the same vowel running into each other on both names—"Coradeline"
Cora Evelyn — I like both names, but I'm not a huge fan of the combo.
Eloise Elizabeth (nn would be Elise) — Way too much "El" going on. Alliteration has to be done very carefully to work, and this doesn't, IMO.
Coralie Linda — Alliterative with the "lie-lin" sounds. Very sweet to want to incorporate your mom's name, but what about an alternative to Linda, such as Rosalind? I'm not sure that one sounds the best with your first name possibilities, but maybe we can come up with something else.
Wow, Eloise is really hard to come up with a middle name for. That's all I got.Two pink lines means we're now planning and not just dreaming of names! First babe, due 4/17.

I don't think using Elise as a nn for Eloise makes sense, Elise isn't really a nn for that name, it's just a similar name. That may be confusing. I can see people saying "Wait, so is her name Elise or Eloise?"
I adore Coralie! And fergosky has a great idea: Linnet is a cool middle name!
I also agree with littlemrsb, watch out for those vowels running into each other. If you do go with Cora, I think the middle name should have a consonant as the first letter.
Cora and Coralie get my vote
