    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
    Simon, Eloise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Marina, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Ruby Louise, Archer, Violet, Gabriel, Persephone, Dov, Louisa

    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.
