    Corin/Coren

    We really like the name Corin/Coren for a boy but as I am aware it can also be used for a girl, I'm wondering which spelling people think is most masculine?

    Corin is the usual spelling for the boys first name (eg. late actor Corin Redgrave) so I voted for that option. Corinne/Corrine are the girls versions. Coren is a surname.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I dont like it at all. I know a really cool kid (boy) named Coven. I like that much better. Or you could do Covin.

    Corin reminds me of 'The Horse and His Boy' - one of the 'Chronicles of Narnia' books by C. S. Lewis

    pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
    not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
    (if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )

    IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!

    Corin is a masculine name. Corinne/Corine is feminine. I much prefer Corin to Coren.
