Comments and insights on the name Coralie: | Edit

Beautiful, classy name with a variety of good nicknames. Uncommon without sounding "weird." However, it rhymes with "orally," which makes me a little nervous about the potential for teasing. Then again, I don't really know if the kids on the playground would pick up on it, so I don't think that this would prevent me from using it.

Meanings and history of the name Coralie: | Edit

This French name is probably derived from Ancient Greek κοράλλιον "coral" - in Modern Greek κοράλλι (korálli) - or else its later Latin cognate corāllium. (In Modern Greek and Latin, the plural forms of these words are, respectively, κοράλλια (korállia) and corallia.)
In any case, both these words are probably ultimately of Semitic origin: cf. Classical Hebrew גּוֹרָל (goral, gōrāl) "small pebble" and Arabic جارال (garal, jārāl) "small stone". (In Modern Hebrew, גּוֹרָל (gōrāl) means "fate, destiny; fortune", from the practice of casting lots using pebbles to determine the outcome of a choice.)
