My friend is called this and she says it was the name of a Celtic goddess of the underworld which I think is pretty awesome.

I have really started to like this name. It is very pretty and elegant.

It's a French stand-alone name, not a pet form of Coral. It has the same meaning as Coral, though. [noted -ed]

Coralie could also mean "maiden" from English "Cora".

A famous bearer is French singer Coralie Clément.

This is a beautiful and sophisticated name. It sounds like a name for a gorgeous young woman with long, slightly wavy, naturally red hair, pale skin, red and full lips, green eyes, and an hourglass figure. Quite dreamy.

To me it sounds like corollary which is math term.

I think that Coral (like the word) is a bit too much for a person to be named. Coralie, however, does not seem so to me. I would definitely choose Coralie over Coral. Also, it makes me think of "cor", which means heart (which I think is a wonderful meaning of a name). Why is it that so many French girls' names sound more elegant than their English counterparts?

It's cool and very pretty, but I have difficulty thinking of this as a real, full-fledged name on a person. It doesn't connect right even though I want it to.

Just like 'Cora', Coralie sounds like a cheap and tacky name. I cannot imagine a fiery, intelligent woman being called Coralie. 'Coralie' is better suited for a washed-up country singer.

Sort of frilly in a way not in my taste.

This name is alright; I think it's better than Coral, and it conjures up very strong affiliations with France. :)

This name is also used in The Netherlands (I used to have a classmate with this name when I was in secondary school many years ago).

The Dutch pronunciation for Coralie can be ko-rah-LEE and KO-rah-lee, depending on where in the country you are.

When I'm bored, I write stories, and one day I came across the name Coralie and liked it. It's a blend of Coral and Rosalie. It's a pretty, elegant name, and I have really grown fond of it.

In Greece there is a name Koralia (Κοραλία in the Greek alphabet, also transliterated as Coralia). For example a famous bearer is the actress Koralia Karanti. I cannot vouch for the veracity of this, but from a Google search there seems to be an obscure saint in the Orthodox church named Koralia. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the English word "coral" ultimately derives from the Ancient Greek "korallion", which is probably the etymology for Koralia as well. Coralie is likely related to Koralia. [noted -ed]

The name Coralie was given to 65 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

I knew a Coralie growing up and I have never forgotten because it is a name you remember. I think, however, it may be cuter as Cora Lee. Or maybe Coral Lee.
-- fugfacedmermaid  12/27/2014
This is quite pretty, though I prefer just "Cora." It's also uncommon, mature and intelligent sounding, and could work well for any type of female. Definitely a good name.

I am from Canada and my name is Coralie- I love my name and have lost count of the times I am complimented on it. I have no idea where my parents came up with it as the rest of my 12 siblings have very common names. Probably every 3rd time I introduce myself someone says what a beautiful name!

I personally really like this name. One of my best friends is named this. The only difference is she spells it Coralee.
