I am thinking of the name Cora...wasn't on my list before but saw on another thread.....what do you think?. I need a short name or perhaps to use Cora as a middle name.....does anyone know any Cora's?!

Total yay from me based on the beautiful Cora from downtown! (Sorry!)

My 16 month old daughter is named Cora so obviously I love it smile. Its definitely rising in popularity though.

Either way, go for it , it's lovely smile

I would have said no but I know the most beautiful little girl called Cora and she has changed my mind completely so I'd say yes go for it.

Its OK. No strong feelings

Like it a lot. Unusual (without being trendy and weird) and classy

JazzAnnNonMouse Sat 12-Jul-14 11:07:02

I like it but it reminds me of evil lady from once upon a time - not everyone will get that reference though!

TwiggyHeart Sat 12-Jul-14 11:08:45

Thanks everyone, my DD's name is quite high on the popularity list (wasn't when I had her!) so wanted something a bit different without being too weird! Think it's def up there (just need to convince DH now....)

I love it, cant use it myself as it clashes horribly with my last name. Makes me think of the lead lady in last of the mohicans.

Lovely name!

Cora is a really lovely, ageless name.

ZenGardener Sat 12-Jul-14 13:57:36

I like it but it would totally depend on your last name.

Funghoul Sat 12-Jul-14 14:02:26

I have a Cora! It's a lovely old fashioned name which we favour, different without being weird or made up, and seems to really suit our dd. I love it, even if I did have to tell the hv 3 times no not Corey.

I have an aunt called Cora. It's quite a common name amongt older Irish women.

silveryscales Sat 12-Jul-14 15:41:05

Yay from me. Nice name

Gingerjv Sat 12-Jul-14 17:25:49

I do not like this name much( so i would use it only for middle name. But i see all of the commnets are positive)))
