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?)

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!
