I know someone with this name, they chose it because they loved Coraline but, didn't like the movie association

Thinking of naming my daughter Cora, and having one of her middle names be Lee...

I love it pronounced Coral-ee but fear it would get Cora-lee much of the time, which is pretty but not my style.

It comes from Greek. The meaning is "coral."

For a little while, I actually thought the 'ie' at the end was pronounced like 'eye'. Coralai? I think Coralie is much cuter, though.

You know, those who can only think of sexual things when they see names may need to expand their horizons. I personaly don't like this version preferring the much prettier Cora or Coraline. Just not my thing but I can see why some would like it. I had a roommate named Cora, she was actually named after a great-grandmother.

I like this name but other sites list the meaning as "maiden". The French word for coral is corail
