Thoughts please, and does it go with Noah?

mayanna234 Sat 22-Dec-12 12:35:15

Is it the male version of Corinne? I've not heard it before.

mayanna234 Sat 22-Dec-12 12:35:59

In what way should it 'go' with Noah confused? As in Noah Corin? Or brothers Noah and Corin? Why not?

ThermalMittens Sat 22-Dec-12 13:29:21

Oh, as in big brother's name is Noah smile. Sorry, that was unclear.

Anything that doesn't start with N and has two sylables or rhymes with.

ThermalMittens Sat 22-Dec-12 14:11:08

Eh? confused. So Corin is a no because it has two syllables?

racingheart Sat 22-Dec-12 14:32:09

I like the name, but both the Corins I've met in life have been very weedy, meek men. Nice but looked like they needed a hot dinner and a brisk walk. That colours the name for me, even though it sounds lovely.

I like it. Only one I have heard of is the actor Corin Redgrave and it always struck me as a ....striking name.

ThermalMittens Sat 22-Dec-12 15:32:45

grin at hot dinner and a brisk walk.

FiercePanda Sat 22-Dec-12 15:50:12

I've only ever heard of a woman called Corin. Love the name.

MERLYPUSS Sat 22-Dec-12 23:34:38

But Corin doesn't start with an N.

Is it a boys name? Heard of girls name Corrine which is ok

talkingnonsense Sat 22-Dec-12 23:46:58

I love it. Corey or corry for short?

usualsuspect3 Sat 22-Dec-12 23:47:49

Love it.

lottiegarbanzo Sat 22-Dec-12 23:54:14

Like it. Have only heard of Corin Redgrave too but really like it.

I know a Corin. Think he's 8 or 9 now.

Have heard him get called Colin by mistake though.

Damash12 Sun 23-Dec-12 05:06:03

Always thought it was a girls name.

Sleepyfergus Sun 23-Dec-12 05:14:40

I know a Corin. He's my DHs best friend. He's stupidly handsome, models for Barbour etc!!

Great name. Never gets mistaken for Colin. We're in Scotland though, not sure if its more if a Scottish name (hence not getting muddled with Colin?)

ThermalMittens Sun 23-Dec-12 10:07:37

Right, hands up who headed to baby names after the thread on poncey and egocentric middle class name choices? grin Does this count?

Must admit, one of the reasons I love it is because it's used in A Horse and his Boy. But that sentimental rather than pretentious, I think.

I guess when I asked if it 'goes' with Noah, I meant that we're obviously aware that Noah is one of the most popular boys' names today. Can't work out if it's fine to offset that with a slightly more unusual name, or if it will seem odd. Of course, with my naming skills it's likely that Corin is starting rocket up the charts and I just haven't noticed yet!

A girl would have been Marnie or Merryn <sigh - love those names>.

ThermalMittens Sun 23-Dec-12 10:21:13

The girls' name is Corinne, btw.

lottiegarbanzo Sun 23-Dec-12 12:12:53

I don't think it's flowery enough to be poncey, it's just unusual.

eachtigertires Sun 23-Dec-12 12:39:21

I like it, one of my cousins is called Corin.

FiercePanda Sun 23-Dec-12 12:45:47

Girl Corin.

ThermalMittens Sun 23-Dec-12 15:19:39

She seems like a fairly cool person to be named after.

copyandpaste Mon 24-Dec-12 03:42:17

I like. And somehow I don't think it sounds pretentious!
