    It actually wasn't. Neil Gaiman thought he made the name up but then discovered that it was in fact a legit name with a history (he mentioned this in some interview awhile back). So while the book and movie definitely made the name more mainstream, the name didn't originate from them.

    Anyway, I would go with Coraline since you can use both Cora and Coral as nicknames. Unless you want to use a super long middle name, in which case I'd go for one of the two shorter names.

    My vote goes to Coral. It's most beautiful to me cause it feels naturey and vibrantly colorful. I never saw the movie Coraline, but somehow associate it as being gothy...I could be wrong, but that's my memory of it. Tim Burton or something? A cartoon, no? I would rather a name evocative of sunny brightness & the ocean, but that's just me. Cora is very sweet, but prim. I picture a Colonial girl & I think of the name Laura which I associate as shy & sweet.

    Cora! It's simple and classic. Not a fan of Coral or Coraline.

    I like all three, but I voted Coraline because you can always use Cora or Coral as a nn, and then you get to use two of them
