What do people think of Coco for a girls name? Surname would be McKay.

McKay doesn't go with Coco. But coco is a gorgeous name.

I really like it. I think it works well through all ages.
Not sure if Coco McKay is a bit hard though?
Would you like some other suggestions?

I also thought that about the sounds Mrsk. Though Courtney Cox's daughter is Coco (Arquette) which would be similar.

There's a cool Hawaiian female surfer called Coco I like it. It sounds like it could be a nickname a little bit though.

I think it's totally dire. Please don't. Kids at school will call her coconutty.

I like it, but I don't think the majority of people can pull it off. I also think that it's the sort of name which could limit a person, depending on what they wanted to do with their life.

I second others that Coco McKay doesn't quite work.

Pop for a middle name?

No, it's a dog name. Or for people with a cocaine habit.

I think Coco McKay sounds great!

Ivygarden Sun 05-Nov-17 20:20:10

I know a very ‘posh’ lady with a daughter called Coco and it really suits her. Maybe it’s after Chanel...

RavenWings Sun 05-Nov-17 20:22:18

No, I don't think it works. Coco itself isn't a great name, but paired with a very common (ordinary!) surname like McKay it sounds a bit odd. It's like naming a child Cassiopeia Araminta Murphy.

I think as a name in general like Coco is hard to pull off.

Snoopy90 Sun 05-Nov-17 20:22:32

Thanks everyone! Interesting to hear people's honest opinions. I think will go with a soft middle name if we go with it.

Anyoneanytimeanywhere Sun 05-Nov-17 20:23:08

If I was Say what I thought, since you are asking, it Makes me think of W hen people have posh puppies/dogs who have a show name that’s what it sounds like. Could never be taken seriously.
However your baby your choice we all have different opinions and tastes.

How about Cora, with CoCo as a non?

jocobella Sun 05-Nov-17 20:30:55

My daughter is called Coco and we only get positive comments - no one has ever said it’s a dogs name so I’d ignore those responses if you like it. She’s quite old now and although she got the odd Cocobelle, Coca Cola when she was little, she is just Coco now

ChocolateCrunch Sun 05-Nov-17 20:36:35

I like it, and with your surname!

pret Sun 05-Nov-17 20:39:34

DD has a friend called Cocoa. I like it.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 05-Nov-17 20:47:11

Nicole McKay (Coco).

DrinkFeckArseGirls Sun 05-Nov-17 20:52:04

pret Cocoa??

DrinkFeckArseGirls Sun 05-Nov-17 20:52:59

I like Coco btw although it sounds a be cowgirly with your surname. Who’s to say if that’s a bad thing though! grin

BuzzKillington Sun 05-Nov-17 20:54:30

It's too silly.

C0untDucku1a Sun 05-Nov-17 20:56:13

Courtney cox’s daughter is called coco. I like te name. But not with your surname.

PinkFlamingo888 Sun 05-Nov-17 20:57:04

I really like Coco and would use it myself but would prefer to use it as a nickname but have never been sure what it could be short for! I think if there was a lengthier alternative it may flow better with your surname too.
