"My names Coral and I can never imagine having a different name. It's absolutely beautiful and I find it so unique. I've only ever met 1 Coral so far and we were both so shocked. Everyone always compliments me on my name. I get a lot of Carol or Crystal. (one time I even got Carousel??) but I don't mind. I find the Coral Reef jokes quite funny as well." May. 8, 2020:
"My name is Coral and I love my name. It is super unique and I could never imagine myself with another name. My name gets mistaken for Carol sometimes but that?s okay. Whenever I meet new people they sometimes say ?what a beautiful name? or ?I love your name? and it makes me feel special." Mar. 25, 2020:
"It took me 40 years to learn to love my name. It is unique and beautiful. I deal with the frustration that I'm sure most other Corals deal with...the misspelling, mispronunciation, and the common malapropism "Crystal" and "Opal"." Dec. 3, 2018:

Carol Ann I get compliments day to day thank you everybody for letting me know I'm not the only coral" Jan. 13, 2016:

"Coral is my name! I absolutely love it, i wanted to change it to a different name but then i realized how unique i am for having this name. I love it when people scream down the hall and say "sup Reef" they make jokes about my name but doesn't affect me. :) i am nicknamed Cora. (Which my family and friends call me) but most prefer to say Coral. I get a lot of compliments and never get dirty jokes. Btw to all you people who say it's not a name, then how did everyone else come up with Samantha and Debbie and all those names. :)" Nov. 23, 2014:

"Coral is my middle name and I love it! It was actually supposed to be 'Carol', after my godmother, but when the nurse wrote it down she accidentally switched the "o" and the "a", so I ended up with Coral, which I love so much more! It's unique and goes beautifully with my last name "Rose". I plan on passing it down :)" Jul. 18, 2009:

"My name is Coral Rose and I have disliked my name since I was a child. I hated all the 'coral reef' jokes and even now at the age of 72 would consider changing it. Whatever possessed my mother to call me Coral I will never know. I do not like the name Coral, and never will." May. 12, 2019:
"Named my daughter Coral in 2008 we live in FL and we actually named her Coral because that's what we thought of painting her room before she was born but then it clicked as a name instead. I love it because nobody she knows has the same name and she probably will never meet a Coral in her lifetime! Unique for sure." Nov. 24, 2018:
"I love my name it makes me me. And I have some of the best coral reef jokes EVER! My motheer told me that she named me coral because of a princess she new when she was younger. Apparently her family was ran out of its country by a bigger more popular place. She said that this was one of the most beautiful, and nicest and wises person she new. I love that this was the case. All though she was cursed with cancer she lived a wonderful life and was proud to be who she was.❤️" Nov. 6, 2018:

"My name is Coral. I never liked it but it's grown on me. I'd like it more if I lived in Maui, then I'd fit right in." Nov. 12, 2016:
"My daughter is named Coral she was born in 2008 and she loves her name because she has not yet met another Coral and probably will never in her lifetime! I truly believe the most beautiful people are named Coral inside and out." Mar. 28, 2015:
"My name is Coral and I have spent my life correcting people that it is not Carol. I have had people tell me that I misspelled my name when I signed something. I grew up when everyone was Debbie or Cathy and unusual names were looked down on. I have only met one other woman with my name and that was 20 years ago. Now that unusual names are more accepted, I get a lot of compliments on my name and don't hate it so much." Feb. 2, 2013:
"My name is Coral and I couldn't be happier. It is so unique, and it's nice to be the only Coral in my city. Everyone knows me! Everyone compliments me. My job requires me to call people all day, and I get at least 10 compliments a day on the name. It is a beautiful name :)" Feb. 28, 2009:
"I quite like this name. It reminds me of a sunny South Sea location. There's also a French fancy form, Coralie (pronounced Coral-ee) that I think sometimes gets mangled outside France into Cora-Lee. I don't like Cora at all." Dec. 22, 2007:
"this is my sisters name, i love it as its so pretty and unique! its hard to find gifts and named notebooks etc!" Jan. 24, 2006:
