Girl's name with French and Greek roots...

It's sweet; though thoroughly French to my ear - elodie, amelie, aurelie - all similar if you're struggling!

I like it. It sounds pretty but funky.

Prefer Coral myself - i love Coral actually, but i cant use it as i have a Pearl!
Coralie is ok, but prefer Coral.

I know a particulary rude arrogant french canadiene called Coralie
so not for me

also reminds me of the Waltons

Knew a coralie- didn't exactly see eye to eye with her.

Its nice. I liked Coraline, like the film.

Saw the film poster and wondered why they couldn't spell Caroline.... unless there is an 'Amelie' like proliferation of little Coralines I think any thus named child would have the same problem.

Not sure about Coralie either. maybe too close to 'chorally'..

Very pretty name.

I love it now but as a child I got called a lot of things like celery/calorie/collie etc etc.

Very unusual! I like it though, it's pretty.

sounds like a description pertaining to the seabed

"ooh you look a bit corally today!"

deepdarkwood Fri 04-Sep-09 19:53:27

Like it - different, but very spellable
