Coco Riley is the daughter of Courtney Cox and David Arquette.

Courteney Cox Arquette's daughter Coco was originally to be named Courteney after her mother and grandmother. However the Arquette family objected to this as naming a child after a living relative goes against Jewish tradition. Coco was the nickname for Courteney that was given to Cox's mother as a child and that is how they got Coco.
I think with the background behind their kid's name it makes Coco somewhat better. I'd prefer a name that means something to their family, no matter how cutesy it is, to a crappy celebrity name that means nothing.

Coco Lee was a singer.

Coco Chanel is a famous bearer.

I couldn't imagine why anyone would intentionally name their kid 'Coco'. It brings to mind a poodle.

There is a item on the online fourm/game "Gaia ONLINE" named "Coco Kitty Plushie".
tokidoki_xx  11/23/2006
Could also be spelled Cocoa.

This sounds like a name for a pet. Heck, I wouldn't even give this silly name to a goldfish. I pity anybody whose parents gave this embarrassment to them as a given name.

It's a name for a cute little dog. Or a nickname but I wouldn't use it for my baby.

I would wonder about the sanity of the parents if they called their kid Coco, celebrity parents included. This is not a suitable name for a pet, let alone a child.
Missy  2/22/2007
People shouldn't be allowed to name a child this. Can you imagine calling out to "Coco" on the playground? The kid would die of embarassment.
― Anonymous User  2/23/2007
Coco is not a bad name for a girl, but I knew a guy named Coco. Take THAT for embarassment.
A.R.  3/1/2007
In the game Crash Bandicoot Crash's (I think) sis is called Coco. This name would serve better as a nickname though.
Luangi  4/9/2007
In Spanish 'Coco' means a person who is extremely ugly. Not a beautiful name.
― Anonymous User  8/5/2007
"Coco" in Spanish does not mean an ugly person. It means "coconut."
sarahj  8/28/2007
Sarahj, COCO in Spanish means coconut. But in my country, besides coconut it has always meant someone who is ugly.

A famous bearer is the model Coco Rocha.

This reminds me of Koko the ape (even though it's spelled different).
jasmineenimsaj  2/23/2008
I have to admit I don't like food names -- e.g. Candy -- but this is cute.
tu_es_faux  3/8/2008
I have no clue as to who would intentionally name their daughter Coco or CoCoa. It seems like a poodle or beagle name. Imagine having your daughter introduce herself: "Hi. My name? CoCo. Yeah, like the hot beverage. No, my mother didn't have a hot chocolate craving when she had me." it would be embarrasing I would think. I don't recommend it, but if you like it. I pity your daughter.

Could be short for Colette.
― Anonymous User  3/16/2008
This sounds like an okay nickname for a little girl, but it's infantile on a woman. It's a tacky name, and a woman named Coco would have to try hard to convince people that she is intelligent despite not changing her name.
slight night shiver  4/22/2008
There is a friend on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends with this name.

The yellow princess in the Japanese anime Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch is named Coco.

Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon gave birth to their daughter Coco Hailey in 1994.
scholasticastewart  6/25/2008
In the Carribean Coco also means the private part of a women mostly used in a bad way but if I ever met someone named Coco I would honestly say I wouldn't be able to keep a straight face. =D
― Anonymous User  7/2/2008
For some odd reason, I like this name and use it a lot. In every story I write, there seems to be a character named Coco.
bananarama  7/31/2008
Some etymologists mean that the name is derived from one of the Bikini Islands that is named Coca.
Kazuya  8/25/2008
This name makes a great nickname for a name that starts with 'Co' but not as a real name. It's sort of hard trying not to laugh if you meet someone with this name.
DeeDee153  11/26/2008
Coco is the nickname of the protagonist of Wei Hui's famous novel Shanghai Baby.
vomiting  2/16/2009
I have a friend named Courtney, I call her Coco and she loves it! I wouldn't name a person this but a nickname that people call them I think is really cute!

Famous Bearer is Boston Redsox/Kansas City Royal baseball player Coco Crisp.

So I guess guys can use this name also.
― Anonymous User  4/10/2009
Yum, reminds me of a hot chocolate drink, or one of those celebrity's weird names. For a name; god save that poor soul that was this name. D:

Coco Puffs.
titans1011  7/20/2009
This would be nice as a nickname for Kokoro or Gabrielle. It makes me think of cocoa, which chocolate is made from. (And, unfortunately, coca, which is made into cocaine. But, then again, indigenous people in Bolivia chew coca leaves, so it can't be so bad.) I love Coco Chanel, and I think Coco is a really cute nickname.
― Anonymous User  12/31/2009
Coco sounds like a nickname, not a full name. I know a girl that goes by Coco, her name is Caroline.
― Anonymous User  3/7/2010
I don't like this as a stand-alone name, but it's fine as a nickname.
Athena Nike  4/4/2010
It would be a cute nickname but, in my opinion, is terrible as a real name.
Jesussaves7193  6/18/2010
I can't imagine anyone giving their daughter this name. Not only is the name itself really bad as a stand-alone name (not as a nickname, which even then I dislike), but this is my dog's name. It fits her- she's a pug- but on a human? Nope, sorry.
sunshinechild67  10/6/2010
Coco is a lovely nickname for full names that may be considered heavy on young girls, including but not limited to: Colette, Constance, Cordelia.

Koko is the name of the male Siamese cat in the series of books 'The cat who...' from Lilian Jackson Braun.
Kaat5  3/22/2011
I've never really liked this name.

However, I recently started liking the name Cosima... and Coco is my favorite potential nickname for that. Don't know if I'd ever actually use it, but I don't actively dislike it anymore.

Koko is the Blackfoot name meaning "Night".
Meg_Simpson  3/14/2013
The name Coco was given to 72 baby girls born in the US in 2012. The same amount of babies were given the name Cheryl. That just doesn't seem right to me.
Oohvintage  7/18/2013
I know a girl with this name. And even though every one she meets and tells her name to is a bit confused at first and ask if that is her full name, she is very proud of her name and it makes her stand out next to all the standard/boring normal names.
123blablabla  4/29/2014
I like this name even though I know I shouldn't...
fugfacedmermaid  12/27/2014
A male bearer of the name is the Jazz musician Coco Schumann who survived the Ghettos Theresienstadt and Auschwitz.
elbowin  1/19/2015
Well, like other commenters mentioned, this would be cute as a nickname but definitely not acceptable as a full name. Makes me crave hot chocolate too much lol. :)
marisamary  4/26/2015
My seven year old daughter is named Camilla, but we have called her Coco since before she was born. It suits her perfectly. We call her Camilla at times, which she always has as her grown-up name if she wants.
VAmom  7/8/2015
Coco sounds soo CUTE! ^______^ I love this name! :D
― Anonymous User  10/3/2015
My nickname is Coco (well Colleen is my real name). People started calling me that when I was a kid because I didn't like my name much and it was easier for my little cousins to say. It eventually just stuck. I like it a lot except when people say it sounds like a choppy stripper name. Now a days most of my cousins call me Coke. I don't think it works well on too many people over the age of 9.

HerculePoirot  6/16/2016
I would question the judgment of any parent who'd name their kid Coco - not Corinne, not Colette, just... Coco. It's only acceptable as a nickname. Remember your kid is going to be an adult one day, and nobody is going to take her seriously as a doctor or teacher or businesswoman named friggin' Coco.
SamanthaJojo  9/9/2016
Everyone saying they don't know what parent in their right mind would name their child Coco, my mother actually is one of those people. I was born in 1989 and grew up before the weird unique name craze hit. My first name is: Coco middle name: Chanel I was actually my mother's first girl after 3 boys, so she went and told the drs not to tell her the sex because she was hoping I'd be a girl. Low & behold when I was born she was pleasantly surprised but had nothing but boy names picked out. My uncle, who was a huge fan of the Chanel perfume suggested my name. As a kid it got lots of laughs when the teachers would call on me. Eventually people just started assuming it was a nick name. As I got older it definitely became a conversation piece. I've had so many,"that's so unique, I love your name", and, "I'm naming my daughter that when I have one". It definitely made me hard to forget & I absolutely love my name.

Very cute name, also pretty. I named my first hamster Coco.
nameaddictt  12/9/2016
My name is Coco and I'm proud. I've never ever gotten any of these insults in my life and whoever says Coco is not a real name is rude to who ever's name is Coco. Everyone should be appreciated in every shape or form, it doesn't matter.
mynameisCoco  10/15/2017
My uncle has a dog called Coco, and she is a very nice pit bull, and I met another dog called Coco. I prefer it as a nickname.
XironDarkstar  1/22/2018
Coco as a feminine name is delicate and fascinating, only thanks to Chanel obviously. I rate it 8/10.
Felie  3/28/2018
Coco sounds cute and kind of bada** on a guy, maybe as a nickname though for Cody, Cole or Coburn since it might seem a bit immature for just a first name, but I love it for a guy just as much as for a girl.
