The name Carina ....

We are coming up with baby name and the name Carina ( also spelled Karina) has always stood out for me ...

To me it is girly, princess-y, and just very pretty ...

However I have been told it sounds like an "old name" ( not old as in classic- old , but old as in only women who are in their 40s and 50s would have that -- and yes I know one day my child will be a 40 year old woman lol - this is just how it was descirbed to me) ... so I kind of understand to me there are some names I feel the same way about ( like Susan, Tammy, Carol.... things like that) .... so my question is does anyone else see it that same way?

  • I work with a girl named Karina who I really do love but she drives me (and everyone else) batshit crazy so my head hurts just seeing the name lol. But I don't think it's an "old" name at all. The girl I work with is 26.I think "Corrina" is the "older" version of the name.
