Re: Cora or Annabelle?

  • Annabelle is too cutesy to me. It's just NMS with the -belle ending. I don't see Cora as harsh at all.

  • I like Cora. It's not to harsh at all.

    Annabelle just does nothing for me, I find it pretty cutesy, and just too sweet, juvenile sounding.

    I've known two Annabelle's, and it's super cute when they are young and gets shortened to Anna or Belle when they get older.

    I prefer Cora. I'm sorry, but any time I hear Annabelle, I picture a cow. As in, at a farm. I picture a cow named Annabelle, eating grass or being milked.

  • That was a hard choice, but I voted Annabelle.  I like them both.  FWIW, both of my kids are hanging out with me today, and they both voted Cora.

  • I'm not a fan of Annabelle, and Cora seems to be super trendy right now. What about just Anna? Or Coral, Corinne, Cara, Clara, or Carly?
  • I really really really hate Cora.  I know it's well-liked here but I just can't see any appeal.  Annabelle is not my style but it's timeless and beautiful.
  • I love Cora, but like it better as a nickname to Coraline or Coralie. Not a fan of Annabelle at all.
