I adore this name beyond measure. My mother's name is Sandra and if I had a baby, I would name her a version of this, Corisandra, nn Sande or Coral. :)

It does not mean chorus girl and the name is Latin in origin. I suggest you research the name and read the in-depth etymology post on British baby names by Eleanor Nickerson.

It's Greek, so therefore the 'e' is pronounced, like Zoe. So it's probably CORE-ih-SAND-ee.

I thought you pronounced the e. So Co (as in 'cop')- ri (as in 'in')- sand- ee. But I'm not entirely sure.
