I'm not wild about Caroline and can't think of any others.

Or what do we think of Carrie as a standalone name, is it too nicknames/babyish?

Thanks!

Catherine?

Carrie is fine as a name. A bit pointless to find a name you like then try to make it longer.

What pixie said.

Carrie does make me think of an unpopular, bullied girl getting a bucket of pigs' blood chucked over her at prom... Sorry.

Had you considered Carey (as in Carey Mulligan, similar but more modern and without the above connotations)?

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, you've also reassured that it's an acceptable name by itself (pigs blood aside!)

Carrie Ann by the Hollies....it's a lovely name in its own right.

Cariad, is one of my favourite names but DP doesn't like it so I can't have it for my little one due in Feb sad
