Had Mack and Cory on our list for DS2 and DP suggested this today...

I quite like it, what do people think?

StrumpersPlunkett Mon 22-Jun-15 23:07:21

Makes me think of Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor.

DramaAlpaca Mon 22-Jun-15 23:07:44

I love it.

Allstoppedup Mon 22-Jun-15 23:33:43

Had to Google strumpers blush

A previous Google had only linked the name to an Irish king and the novelist Cormac Macarthy.

I'm going to mull it over for a while I think! I still have 15 weeks to go but this is the first name DP and I have both liked on so far!grin

It reminds me of caramac and makes me hungry.

Fern123 Mon 22-Jun-15 23:39:49

I'm just lying in bed watching my lovely snuffly newborn, named Cormac, sleeping in his crib so I love the name!

Nospringflower Mon 22-Jun-15 23:41:19

Lovely name. Wish I had thought of it for one of my DS!

Allstoppedup Mon 22-Jun-15 23:43:50

Ooh! Congratulations Fern smile

I love my big, brutish, crazy (but cuddly) toddler to pieces but I am looking forward to having a snuffly little one again!grin

Allstoppedup Mon 22-Jun-15 23:44:26

As an aside mmmm, Caramacs...

JellyMould Mon 22-Jun-15 23:49:19

Love it!

MumSnotBU Mon 22-Jun-15 23:51:12

I thought the same as Strumpers...

Sophronia Mon 22-Jun-15 23:59:42

It makes me think of Korma and Tarmac

My DS is called Cormac. Suits him well!

Congrats Fern. Great name choice grin

NomiMalone Tue 23-Jun-15 00:04:58

Love it. A great solid Irish name.

Congrats on your squishy baby Fern thanks thanks I'm looking at my frankly huge 10 month old DS asleep beside me and remembering when he was tong.

Don't if you live in or visit Cornwall.

MitzyLeFrouf Tue 23-Jun-15 01:06:58

Love it. But only if it's pronounced the Irish way, core-mc rather than the Scottish core-MACK.

Homebird8 Tue 23-Jun-15 01:25:41

I had the loveliest chap on my uni course called Cormac so it has great associations for me.

PunkAssMoFo Tue 23-Jun-15 05:06:43

Lovely name.

It would be on my list of I had even vague Gaelic connections.

CakeRattleandRoll Tue 23-Jun-15 05:52:29

Really like it. Much better than Mack, although I like Corey too.

BubGal13 Tue 23-Jun-15 09:21:11

I love it. Strong, different, quirky. Knew one- gorgeous Cormac at school and then also like its associations with the novelist too.

Belazu84 Tue 23-Jun-15 14:14:59


GeorgeYeatsAutomaticWriter Tue 23-Jun-15 14:15:59

Lovely. But only if it's Cor-muck (proper pronunciation) rather than Cor-mack.

BlueKarou Tue 23-Jun-15 14:17:18

I know a 3 year old Cormac. He's lovely!

DarylDixonsDarlin Tue 23-Jun-15 14:19:15

Yes agree with UniS above, don't if you are in or near Cornwall - its the name of our road maintenance department, they're not thought of fondly in these parts grin. But I'm guessing if you're in Cornwall you probably wouldn't be asking cos you'd already know that!

I must confess, I didn't know until I read this, that it was an actual boy's name! smile
