Is Cora a "black name"? Is Ivy an Asian name?
Trying to put this is the least offensive way and not really knowing how...I've always loved the name Cora but I just saw the movie Django and one of the slaves in it was named Cora. Then I google imaged it and a bunch of the girls that came up were African-American. I'm not a racist but if there's a name that's traditionally used for a different race than mine than I try to avoid it. Is Cora a black name?
On the same kind of note, is Ivy an Asian name? Ivy is the name of the Chinese American Girl doll and I saw somewhere that Ivy is used a lot more by Asian-American parents. Would you picture an Ivy as Asian?
Sorry if this is offensive to anybody, I'm trying to put it the best way I can!

Um... no? I've never put these names with a certain ethnicity before. I really like both of them

I agree with others -- no ties for me. I love both names.Mom to Alexander Patrick (11), Madelyn Esther (8), Genevieve Susan (3), and Theodore James (stillborn at 37 weeks on February 3, 2014). Expecting #5 (a girl!) in May 2015.
