[name_f]Coco[/name_f] is a name, usually as a diminuitive for names beginning with “Co” like [name_f]Colette[/name_f] or [name_f]Cosette[/name_f]. [name_f]Cocoa[/name_f] is a powder, a beverage and a colour among other things. There are cocoa beans, cocoa butter, cocoa puffs cereal and …well, you get the picture. I would stick with [name_f]Coco[/name_f]. Neither is my style but why make life more difficult for a daughter named [name_f]Coco[/name_f] by spelling it differently?

[name_f]Coco[/name_f] is a name. [name_f]Cocoa[/name_f] = chocolate (cocoa bean)


I honestly think I would chuckle if I met someone whose name was spelled the same as the chocolate (I know I did when I saw this thread).

Exactly this.

I didn’t expect this to be so one sided! I’ve posted on other forums and they’ve said the opposite as [name_f]Coco[/name_f] doesn’t seem finished and reminds them of a clown. Thanks for all of your feedback! [name_f]Cocoa[/name_f] is listed as a name on here and I would pair it with [name_f]Marcheline[/name_f] [name_u]Winter[/name_u]. Thanks again!
