I like both, and I also think Callie is more of a nickname. My dd’s name, which is mentioned on this thread, is shortened to Cally by her friends.

Cora was on my girl shortlist!

I prefer Cora (and like Cara even more!)

Callie is ok but feels a bit insubstantial, like it should be short for something. Being Scottish, it names me think of Caley Thistle or Glasgow Caledonian University (often referred to locally as 'Cali').

Callie is much nicer. Cora sounds like a kitchen gadget for apples.

I like Cora, from Greek (maiden/ Persephone, daughter of Zeus and Demeter).

Definitely Cora.

I don’t much like Cora, but Callie would be better if short for Calista, Caroline, Camilla etc. Cara is better than Cora.

Cali is short for California

Went to school with a really nasty girl called Cora so Callie gets my vote

Cora=corer. Awful. Cara and Cassia are a million times nicer. Cali is OK.

Callie as nn for Caroline.
Cora is nice but a bit fashionable for me.

DramaAlpaca · 28/08/2022 03:04

Difficult. I think Callie, but would want it short for something. Caroline, probably.

I can't decide if I love or hate Cora. It's sort of growing on me, very slowly.
