I am expecting my third girl, we already have a Camila Juliet (nickname Mila) and a Coraline Jolie (nickname Cora). We are sticking to the CJ initials and I am super picky. My husband is 100% on Team Cordelia and doesn't like that Charlotte has a different "C-sound"...which is actually one of the things I like about it. Here are my pros & cons:
Charlotte Pros: Such a pretty name- especially with Joelle, I think it goes with our other daughters' names without being too similar, my picky mom likes it
Charlotte Cons: It's super popular right now, I'm not a fan of Charlie, Lottie, or any of its other nicknames and I'm a 'nickname person.'
Cordelia Pros: I love the nickname Ellie/Elia. It's my husband's #1 choice. It's not popular right now, I think it's a pretty name
Cordelia Cons: Starts with the same 3 letters as Coraline (our 2nd daughter. Not sure why this bothers me), Reactions from others have been mixed, is it too weird?
I'm really split right down the middle on this!
