Cornelia or Amelia??
As my hubby and I are coming up with our name lists, a new name came to me. Well, new to me anyway
Cornelia. But I want to know what other people think of when they hear it? What kind of girl do you picture with that name? Do you like it or dislike it? It means "horn" which is lousy, would that keep you from using it?
And we've been considering Amelia for awhile but I worry about its popularity. Between the two, which do you prefer?
Thanks so much!

I prefer Cornelia. I picture a spunky girl with a serious side. I could see using the nn Nellie among friends and family and the more formal name to rely on professionally.
With Amelia, I kind of picture Amy from Little Women (yes, I know her name was not Amelia.)
My final test.. If it were me, I would prefer to named the Less common Cornelia than the more Common Amelia.I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.
