Really like Corey but it doesn't go with dp's surname does it?

Fimbo Fri 03-Jul-09 13:24:02

Nope sounds like you have forgotten to add on the surname

NotKeenOnFish Fri 03-Jul-09 13:26:13

blasted surname

Fimbo Fri 03-Jul-09 13:27:36

Could you double barrell it with yours?

Corey Lee-?

i knew a girl at uni called coralie said the same way as corey lee.

so people might assume your ds is a dd?!

Although Suzanne Shaw's little boy is called Corey, presumably the surname is Day after his father.

Corey Day - that doesn't work either.

Or it could be Corey Shaw

Or as SS has recently married JK it could be Corey King.

ROLF at Corey King.grin

Therefore the conclusion is that Corey is wrong rather than the surname.

I'm sorry but it would be really easy to mishear that as corny or Coralie.

Fimbo it's definalty his surname thats wrong - doesn't go with any names I like!

I don't want to double barrell it as my surname is 11 letters so it would be one hell of a name to write down

Fimbo Fri 03-Jul-09 13:46:30

Use your name then instead of his! wink

I think it is ok. I like the name of the author Laurie Lee. It's a similar sound.

MamaLazarou Fri 03-Jul-09 14:16:35

I think a long first name would sound better with such a short surname, like with actor Christopher Lee.

FairLadyRantALot Fri 03-Jul-09 14:24:30

if Lee is the surname, than yes, Corey Lee doesn't really work that well, sorry...
so, indeed, as Mama said use a longer first name, or use 2 first Corey-Aron Lee or some such thing...

NotKeenOnFish Fri 03-Jul-09 14:27:18

I want to use dp's name as dd has his surname and one day we will get married and I'll take his name

Mammina Fri 03-Jul-09 15:19:09

Sorry but I think you're right, it sounds like an American hyphenated first name

jellybeans Fri 03-Jul-09 16:01:55

I think it is ok.

proverbial Mon 06-Jul-09 16:22:00

I just don't like Corey, with any name...

TEJQ Mon 06-Jul-09 16:40:21

Nope, I know of two Corey-Lee's BUT that both of their first names.

stripeypineapple Mon 06-Jul-09 16:51:26

Perhaps it's regional but in London Corey means you've got a big dick.

Quite a name to live up to. smile

TiggyR Mon 06-Jul-09 17:00:27

With a surname like Lee I would avoid any very modern or Americanised name - it could end up sounding a bit trailer trashy. Sorry!

Bonneville Mon 06-Jul-09 17:16:49

I dont like Corey. Is it actually a proper name?

sonniboo Wed 08-Jul-09 12:18:42

No, Corey Lee souns like Coralie grin.

Agree with TiggyR - I'd probably choose a traditional, classic name to be on the safe side. I'd also choose a 'strong' sounding first name.

MadameCastafiore Wed 08-Jul-09 12:19:57

I think the problem you have is the name Corey is revolting!

JemL Wed 08-Jul-09 13:29:39

stripey pineapple, it's not just regional - Cory is the Romany word for penis grin

TiggyR Wed 08-Jul-09 19:14:25

sonniboo and I are obviously on the same wavelength because I was thinking you need a 'strong' name and preferably at least three syllables with any one syllable name. As you picked Corey I suspect you won't like these, but I'd go for something like:

Julian (I'm starting to really like that for some reason - is it back in fashion?)
