I love Cordelia!
It's origins are uncertain, however. Here are the three most popular theories:
The most popular belief that it is from the Greek Kore (daughter) and -alia (sea), translating to daughter of the sea.
Another common theory is that it comes from the Latin -cordis, which means 'heart', combined the feminine ending -elia.
Cordelia could also be an Anglicized version of the Celtic Cordeilla, which is a name of unknown meaning that was one of the daughters of King Lear in Shakespeare.
Whatever meaning you choose, the name has solid credentials, along with the nicknames Cora, Delia, Lia, Dell, Cori and Cia (Kia).~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor heaven "lena" ~ vivienne ailsa ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai sacha ~ ezra link ~ satoshi rowan ~
