Hi, I'm new to MN. Expecting in Feb, and have picked a boys name but am currently debating between Corrina or Alice for a girl.
I like that they aren't very common where I live. Which sounds nicer? Finding it very difficult to pick a girls name!

Alice is lovely. Corrina really isn't. And predictive text wants to spell it as cortina.

I've been musing over Carina too, very different name to Alice but both good names

Alice. I prefer Corrina spelled Corinna.

I like Alice a lot. I like the spelling Carina or Corinna but pronounce them differently - Carina to me is car-EEN-a, Corinna is Car-IN-a.

Alice - beautiful name

Alice is a dull old yawn of a name.

Corinna is better but Corrine is gorgeous.

Anything other than Alice! (Sorry, that name is a pet hate and sil has just announced it has her fave for unborn child)

Marina is nicer. Alice is better.

Corinna is lovely (spelt this way).

Corina has too many spellings and too many pronounciations and sounds like it should be Catrina.

You've gotta love squoosh, she tells it as it is grin

I prefer Corinna

I love Alice, it would be my first choice for our dc2 if it's a girl but my dh prefers our other option (Emma).

Corinna - just the 1 'r' though

Alice is soooo much nicer on every way smile
