  1. Cricket

Meaning and origin: nature name        Popularity: Not ranked in any country’s top 1,000

 

Michelle:       This is such a cute, underrated name. I get the standoffish attitude because Cricket is a bug but if you take that association away from it, it’s adorable.

  1. Colette

Meaning: “Necklace, victorious”      Origin: French surname        Popularity: 531st in the US (2015)

 

Michelle:          This French name is a favorite because of the Disney movie Ratatouille, where I was actually introduced to this name. Like most French names it’s chic and youthful.

Chloe

Meaning: “young green shoot”         Origin: Greek          Popularity: 17th in the US (2015)

In the beginning seasons there was a character, Cordelia Chase, she went through such a transformation that she became one of my favorites even when she left and went to the spin off Angel.

  1. Coralie

Meaning: “coral”       Origin: French from Latin       Popularity: Not ranked in any country’s top 1,000

 

Michelle:          I’m not a huge fan of Cora or Coral, simply because I have difficulty saying it with my speech impediment. But somehow Coralie sounds not half bad coming from me.

She told me it’s kinda the French version of Cleo but mainly it’s the last name of a coffee business man. It’s not a conventional or even a ‘real’ name but neither was Apple and Blue at one point.

I never knew the meaning but now that I do it just adds to the awesomeness of this name. I also didn’t realize how popular the name had become, which makes me happy. I can picture a little girl with this name and thanks to CSI: Miami, I can picture a grown woman rocking this name. Though she spells it, Calleigh, which is different.

Pronunciation: CLO-dah          Origin: Irish river name          Popularity: Not ranked any top 1,000 of any country

 

Michelle:         I found this name when I was searching for names for my top C names. I’ve never given much thought to it beforehand but now I just think it’s completely adorable. Though I do hate the shit they wrote about it on a website I saw. I don’t understand how you can be so judgmental, someone out there has this name but anyways Clodagh in my opinion could be alternative to the popular Chloe. They do share a nickname, Clo.

Michelle:      I know this isn’t a typical girl name and as you can see many of my favorites aren’t. I heard this recently used for a girl off of the show Shooter and I instantly fell. I never ever thought of using it for a little girl but now it doesn’t seem so weird. You can get the ultra-cute nickname Cassie or Cass. I realize that I’m probably the only one rooting for this to become a popular gender bending name but please at least consider it?

 

 

Claire

Michelle:         I’ve always liked the sound of this name for either gender and I’m going to warn you Clancy will be on my boy list as well. It’s a strong Irish name that could be the big gender bending name. I mean it’s really like Clare and Nancy had a baby.

Michelle:        Cliona is another name I found whilst putting this list together, though I like the original spelling Cliodhna, I though the phonetic one would do just fine. It’s very popular in Ireland still and I don’t see why this couldn’t be very hip in the US. Though I do have the tendency to say it CLEE-oh-na, which is as equally cute.

Meaning: nature name          Origin: word name          Popularity: Not ranked in the top 1,000 in any country

Michelle:      A very late addition to my list, like added right before posting, late. The big reason this isn’t higher on my list is because when I say it, it sounds off. I have difficulty saying my “r’s”, 8 years of speech class did nothing to remedy this. But anyways, it’s got the classic modern vibe that’s making coming back. Plus there’s a badass Biotic named Cora in the new Mass Effect game.

  1. Corisande

Pronunciation: Core-uh-sund        Meaning: “chorus-singer”          Origin: Greek               Popularity: Not ranked in any country’s top 1,000

 

 

Michelle:       I found this name when looking for names I’d forgotten for this list and I just thought it was strikingly beautiful. It’s got a rare medieval beauty to it that could be just as popular as the favorites Cora and Caroline. There’s the possibility of mispronunciation and confusion but there’s also a familiar and popular nickname built in, that I’ve mentioned before, Cora. So, it is completely in my eyes a contender to become very trendy.
