Both lovely. Most people will probably disagree but I love the alliteration of Cora Conroy.

Both are lovely, but with your surname I would go with Thea.

Both beautiful names! Personally prefer Thea with your surname as feel like Cora Conroy sounds a little bit tongue twistery!

I think Thea is better with your surname.

I saw your surname and those two choices and immediately thought 'Nina Conroy'. Don't know if you've considered Nina - same vibe I think and beautiful.

I like both but actually think Cora works better with surname - I love the alliteration.

Cora, definitely.

Thea is, to me, very weak and wet. Cora has a strength about it.

I thought this too !
Nina was a favourite name of mine for years & years (I dont have a daughter) but in early days of pregnancy when I suggested it DHs immediate reaction was "No"

I have never met a Nina.

Of your two names I prefer Cora - probably influenced by the small new neighbour of my DF - she made him a card - bless her

Cora. Always dubious about the th in a name, as someone lazy will end up calling her Fea.

Both are lovely, it depends how you feel about the alliteration. To me Cora Conroy sounds more like an actress / newsreader but that isn’t necessarily bad, it sounds cool. But Thea might be a safer bet.

Both are good though.
