    I think of Corinne Bailey Rae so that’s how I’d spell it!

    I picked Corinne.  Just to be clear, you want people to say “core-REEN” right?  Not “core-IN”?

    @Meowkers:  OH.

    Then I change my vote to Corin.  Otherwise, if that kid comes up on my morning attendance, I’m saying “core-EEN”!

    Well, I’m in a different country… but Corinne is the right spelling if you want core-In

    I picked “Corinne.” (According to Wikipedia, “Various spellings of the name exist, although some attest that ‘Corinne’ is the most appropriate and age-old spelling. Other spellings include: CorrineCorinCorinnCorynKorinCoriCorrinneCorinnaKorinna, and Korinne.”)

    I’m not entirely sure but I voted for “Corrinne.” That seemed the most right to me.

    I’d vote for either of the spellings with two n’s… the double consonant is supposed to be a signal that the vowel before it is short (ih) and not long (ee). Make sense? Like with the name Molly–everybody understands the ‘o’ is short; if it were one L it would look like it should be pronounced “moely.”

    Also, do you want the emphasis on the first or second syllable? When I think of that name I think of the emphasis on the second: CorINNE. If I saw the name “Corin” I would put the emphasis on the first syllable and I think most people would have the same instinct.

    Hope that helps!

    @Meowkers:  I guess it would be like Core-In.  Thats the best way I can think of spelling it.

    and to me Corin is pronounced Co-rin, as in Corin Nemec from Parker Lewis Can’t Loose / Stargate SGI Fame.
