    How to honor family name Carolyn with an updated name

    Hiya!

    I'm looking to somehow give a nod to the name Carolyn without using THAT name.

    I like Caroline, but it seems harsh or clunky to me for some reason.

    The types of names I love are usually simple, like: Tess, Mae, Elise.

    Just wondering if you Berries have any good ideas to honor Carolyn without using Caroyln or Caroline.

    THANKS!!

    Yep, I'd say Cara. Or really any name with the same meaning, like Charlotte, which feels similar to Tess on your list.
