    I agree too. My friend has a daughter named Cora and she is a little blonde haired girl. They are both pretty names.

    Agreed. I mean, I can see Ivy working on a little adorable Asian girl, but both Ivy and Cora are so vintagey-delightful (and rather classic!) that I don't think it'd be an issue for a little girl of any nationality.

    I agree, no ties with either name. I was an American Girl Doll lover when I was younger, and I remember when Ivy came out. So I guess I will always think of that doll when I think of the name Ivy. But I still don't think it has ties with any ethnicity though.

    Here's the thing: I'm an asian and I live in Asia. My friends names are Elisabeth, Caroline, Veronica, Nadya, Natalia, etc. Those are all real names. So no, I do not assiciate names with the ethnicities (except the very obvious ones). Cora and Ivy are definitely not obviously culture related, so I think they are universal names.
