What about the name Caley or Callie?
post #43 of 45
Callie is fine, but it comes across as a nickname, a diminutive. What would the real name be?

Caley just looks made-up.

Ellery is a boy's name, like Ellery Queen, the mystery writer

Cora - nice and old-school, although to me it has associations of fluttery feminine helplessness

Ivory - sorry, this looks like something from the Aryan Nation baby name list.

Collette - nice literary association

Emari - eh - not very melodious (kind of makes me think of the Emu) and it's got pronunciation issues as well

I still think Ivy is your best bet.

Callie --- real name could be Calliope or Calista

Caley not a fan, I know someone name Kaley though, not sure I like either one.

Ellery reminds me of celery.

Cora It's cute and I like it better then Nora.

Ivory Not a fan bc it reminds me of cheap soap.

Collette - I love the name Cosette which my DH thinks is ridiculously french and silly but Collete is cute too. My cousin is Nicolette and goes by Collete sometimes.

Emari Sounds very African to me. If that is what you are going for then go for it!

Ivy it's fine but I think of the movie Poison Ivy and the girl would be like a little vixon. haha
