Roxy and Coco?

are these names to hippy or nickname-y? too off-beat or known but not strange?
especially when paired together as twins or just siblings?

any other thoughts or suggestions welcomed,
t.i.a, x

I would say uncommon but known and not strange! They do have a bit of a nickname vibe, especially together, but I think they work! I find both to be names that remain wearable at any age.

If you were worried about the names being too nickname-y on their own, you could use [name_f]Cirocco[/name_f] to get to [name_f]Coco[/name_f] and [name_f]Roxane[/name_f]/[name_f]Roxana[/name_f] to get to [name_f]Roxy[/name_f], but I don’t think it’s necessary. I think they’re both strong enough to stand on their own.

I don’t find either of these names strange or hippie. I think they’re spunky, unusual but intuitive/well-known, and adorable. However, I do find them a bit too nickname-like, particularly [name_f]Coco[/name_f]. I don’t think I could see that on a grown woman in most industries.

I like them a lot and don’t think they are hippie at all. I think if it were me, I’d have full names for both and use [name_f]Roxy[/name_f] and [name_f]Coco[/name_f] as nicknames. Maybe [name_f]Roxann[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f]?

I don’t think they’re hippy- I consider them both to be spunky names that could be either a nickname or a full name. They definitely aren’t strange. I would say it’s up to you whether you want to use them as full names or make them nicknames- [name_f]Coco[/name_f] has loads of full name options ([name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]/[name_f]Carolina[/name_f], and [name_f]Nicole[/name_f] could be options in addition to previous suggestions) and [name_f]Roxy[/name_f] has a smaller number (I can only think of [name_f]Roxanne[/name_f] or [name_f]Roxana[/name_f], or more unusual and less obvious choices like [name_m]Rocket[/name_m] or maybe [name_f]Rochelle[/name_f]?).

Overall, I would say [name_f]Roxy[/name_f] and [name_f]Coco[/name_f] make great names for sisters, and that they could be both nicknames or full names.

[name_f]Coco[/name_f] is a bit too nicknamey for my personal taste, but that may be because I knew someone that went by that name until her mid-twenties. She refused to be called by her full name, [name_f]Nicole[/name_f], then suddenly she was [name_f]Nicole[/name_f]. She got married and started having children.

thanks for all your feedback on the two! i’m so glad that they can be stand alone names!

i have actually been searching for a “fuller” name for [name_f]Coco[/name_f] and i love [name_u]Colby[/name_u] and [name_u]Corey[/name_u]/[name_u]Cory[/name_u]/[name_f]Cori[/name_f], [name_f]Roxy[/name_f] is proving to be a lot more difficult for a “fuller” name

I have a daughter named [name_f]Coco[/name_f] (it was my husband’s idea after he had watched a movie about [name_f]Coco[/name_f] [name_f]Chanel[/name_f]). Now that I got used to it, I’m fine with it. If you want a fuller name, [name_f]Nicolette[/name_f] is the name that it comes from, but any name beginning with Co- will be fine, e.g.:

[name_f]Constance[/name_f]
[name_f]Cornelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Colette[/name_f]
[name_u]Colby[/name_u] (which you like)
[name_f]Colina[/name_f]
Collleen
[name_u]Columba[/name_u]
[name_f]Columbine[/name_f]
[name_f]Concordia[/name_f]
Conifer
[name_f]Cora[/name_f]
[name_f]Coral[/name_f]
[name_f]Conchita[/name_f]
Cologne
[name_f]Coralie[/name_f]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]
[name_u]Corey[/name_u]
Coria
[name_f]Corinna[/name_f]
[name_u]Courtney[/name_u]

[name_m]How[/name_m] funny, I have a sibset of [name_f]Roxie[/name_f] & [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] together!

I would not call [name_f]Roxy[/name_f] and [name_f]Coco[/name_f] hipster, but they are very nickname-y. Definitely not too offbeat.

I’d only do these as nns personally-- [name_f]Roxanne[/name_f] and [name_f]Colette[/name_f] would be the formal names. They are quite the sassy pair!

I would actually consider using these for sisters myself! So my style. Cute but more in a sassy than a little girl way.

That said, I would use them as nicknames. Not because I think they’re unusable this day in age, but because I love some longer forms. However, of the two, I think [name_f]Roxy[/name_f] is the easier one to carry as a full name. Whether or not a person will be comfortable carrying [name_f]Coco[/name_f] is gonna come down to their personality.
