The name Kory is a girl's name . Kory and discussed in our forums with posts like "A brother or sister for little Jack or Olivia".

From the experts:

Kory was always the least-used version of this name, which was always used less often for girls than for boys. As Corey and Cory, the name still hangs on in the boys' Top 1000, but Kory dropped off the boys' list in 2003 and the C spellings faded for girls in the mid-90s. Ironically, the classic girls' name Cora, derived from the Greek Kore, is rising quickly in popularity, now in the Top 100 in the US and a favorite of Nameberry visitors. We foresee this name making the Top 10 in the coming decade, so Cory and Kory may find a new life as short forms for newly popular Greek baby namesCora and sisters.
