    I love both names, but slightly prefer Cordelia. The meaning, "daughter of the sea", has a great deal of personal importance. One of my favorite series, the Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMasters Bujold, has a Cordelia as its heroine, and she's exactly the kind of badass I want as my daughter's namesake.

    Combinations from my own list:

    Cordelia Hesper Jane
    Cordelia Ruby Kate
    Cordelia Sailor Belle
    Cordelia Juniper Faye
    Cordelia Winter Jean

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Mariner | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve

    Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

    Oh, I forgot to say -- I know two little girls named Cordelia (both after the Vorkosigan Saga) and one teenager named Ophelia. They wear their names beautifully.

    Both pretty names, but I wouldn't use Ophelia because middle school boys would torture her with "Ophelia Butts" jokes. Take it from me, a teacher. I've heard this so many times when a substitute teacher takes the role.
