Please help! We just can't decide. What do people prefer? We'd probably use Cordy day to day for Cordelia.

Both nice names but I prefer Robyn

LauraChant Wed 21-Oct-15 14:09:27

I really like Cordy/ Cordelia, Robyn not so much.

LauraChant Wed 21-Oct-15 14:10:00

Straight away two different preferences! Sorry OP!

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 21-Oct-15 14:11:13

I like bo. I'd probably go fir Robyn

I'd probably go for Robyn and Cordelia is a tad frilly. Cordy is very cute though as a nickname.

I love the name Robyn - it's gorgeous.

Robyn is awful. That particular spelling, a horrid attempt at feminising (just use Robin!)

Cordelia is better, though I prefer Delia, Dilly or Cora for nick names

Binkybix Wed 21-Oct-15 14:47:33

Interesting so far. Thanks! I really dislike Delia, Dilly and Cora as nicknames - it's one of the things that's putting me off Cordelia.

Cordy is a bit odd too, sounds like Gordy.

Binkybix Wed 21-Oct-15 14:58:17

So we've established that whatever we choose reuset isn't keen!!

celtictoast Wed 21-Oct-15 14:59:13

Cassia or Cecilia as alternatives to Cordelia?

LemonBreeland Wed 21-Oct-15 15:01:37

Cordelia. I'm not keen on unisex names, I feel they never sound right for either sex.

reuset Wed 21-Oct-15 15:03:49

Not so. grin I like Cordelia, but not Cordy. I don't mind, I suppose, Robin, but dislike your chosen spelling.

IamSantaClaus Wed 21-Oct-15 15:20:32

Robyn. Lovely name

AmysTiara Wed 21-Oct-15 15:24:06

Robyn with that spelling

KaraokeQueenOfTheNorth Wed 21-Oct-15 15:27:31

Love both names! I love Cordelia but honestly I'd probably go for the "safer" option of Robyn...

Indole Wed 21-Oct-15 15:33:25

Definitely Cordelia.

Floralnomad Wed 21-Oct-15 15:42:04

I think they are both lovely but I don't like Cordy as a nn .

Sophronia Wed 21-Oct-15 15:44:57

Definitely Cordelia. Robyn feels very masculine to me, and a bit dated to the 80s.

Notso Wed 21-Oct-15 15:51:22

Robyn by a million miles.

Cordelia is absolutely awful IMO.

JanuaryJuniper Wed 21-Oct-15 15:53:06

Without a doubt Cordelia!
