    Calliope vs Cordelia

    I love love love Cordelia, but Calliope has been growing one me, and I like that it is Ancient Greek name. However, which do YOU prefer? Calliope (Cuh-lie-oh-pee) or Cordelia? And what middle names would you pair them with?

    This one is hard. I like both names and honestly can't pick between them.

    These would be my middle picks:
    Calliope Isla
    Calliope Cora
    Calliope Indigo
    Calliope Autumn
    Calliope Nadia

    Cordelia Zoe
    Cordelia Pearl
    Cordelia Dawn

    I have synesthesia.
    Apologies for any grammar/spelling mistakes. I try my best.
    Also, I'm bad at naming boys. You'll almost never find me discussing boy names.

    Calliope, Calliope, Calliope! You do not understand how giddy I would be to meet a little girl named Calliope. I would, like, break out into song on the spot.

    My current combo for Calliope is Calliope Annabeth (it's after a book character) but I would love to see Calliope Annabel.

    Don't me wrong, I love Cordelia as well, but Calliope is just so bubbly and colorful and happy and fresh, yet brave and brilliant. Ah.

    Love them both. Calliope's more whimsical, Cordelia's more grounded.
