How do you pronounce Cordovan? Thoughts
Randomly stumbled across word name Cordovan today and my heart started palpitating!
Had never heard of this before, and upon a little searching find its the name of a burgundy colour, type of leather and taken from the place Cordova in Spain.
I'm not sure how to pronounce it as I've never heard it out loud before. Core-doe-van? Core-duh-van? Core-duh-vn?
I have been loving the idea of Cordelia for a girl but worry it might be a little too contrived and OTT. I think Cordovan would be great for a boys middle, and am always happy to find a boys name I really like as its rare. What are your thoughts on the name?

Core-doe-van is likely how I'd say it if I saw it. I think it'd be good for an interesting MN.Everly Anais | Maren Astoria | Paloma Winter | Vita Olivine | Xanthe Lyra | Cleo Viviana | Gemma Eulalie | Ione Catalina | Lux Isadora | Elettra Phoebe | Delphine Kaia | Hesper Valentina | India Eleri | Juniper Zara | Ivy Atalanta
