What do you think of Connie (Constance) we really like it but are unsure as our surname begins with a c?

I quite like alliteration in a name. Makes it memorable. Think Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot....

I wanted to call ds William as we liked it and it was a big name in my family. I was worried that it wouldn't work with our W surname then remembered William Wordsworth, William Wilberforce etc. I think it's fine! Although for now he is known as Billy anyhow expect he'll be a cool Will when he gets to choose!

i don't like the combination, I'm afraid. It's a bit of a tongue twister.

[Shock] - that connotation never would have occurred to me.

How about Cara?

I think it's the fact that the 2 main vowel sounds are short that make it sound strange (to my ears). I think something like Katy Cliff or Keira Cliff would sound fine.

I keep thinking Rocky Cliff - but that's obviously a boy's name

What's Connie got to do with oral sex?

I think it's a sweet name and I think it sounds good when the christian and surnames begin with the same letter. Lois Lane, Greta Garbo, Diana Dors etc...

other C names that may work Corinne, Camilla or Caroline

I really like Constance/Connie, but if your surname is Cliff (or something similar) then I think it is a bit of a tongue twister. I think that you need to find something slightly softer. Catherine/Cathy would work, which isn't much different, I think it may be the "Ko" sound which does it.
