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....

Lovely name and I like alliteration as well

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!

But doe Connie Cliff have connotations of cunnilingus?
melpomene · 17/06/2008 13:39
i don't like the combination, I'm afraid. It's a bit of a tongue twister.

like the name my ds has trouble pronouncing it and his imaginary friend is now called cont which can get a few looks in the supermarket!!

Lovely. Theres a Constance/Connie as ds2s playgroup and I always think what lovely name it is.
LuLuBai · 17/06/2008 13:44
[Shock] - that connotation never would have occurred to me.
How about Cara?
melpomene · 17/06/2008 13:46
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.
Bronze · 17/06/2008 13:47
Sorry just saw the other post. I don't think its such a great combination.
LuLuBai · 17/06/2008 13:48
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...
LuLuBai · 17/06/2008 14:00
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.
