    Beautiful, I love it.

    I pronounce it cor-DEE-lee-ah. I don't like to hear it being pronounced cor-DEEL-yah, it's a sloppy pronunciation in my humble opinion!

    If I had a Cordelia, and she had a brother and sister, their names would be Dashiell and Jessamine.

    Elisabeth Aurelia ⋆ Iris Christabel ⋆ Ada Marianne ⋆ Harriet Cordelia
    Dorothea Helen ⋆ Charlotte Gwen ⋆ Josephine Violet ⋆ Sarah Clementine

    Asher Benedict ⋆ Joah Valentine ⋆ Samuel Archer ⋆ Nicholas Bertram
    August Lysander ⋆ John Willoughby ⋆ Gabriel Zachariah ⋆ Tobias Nathaniel


    Current guilty pleasures: Corliss + Winston

    Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

    What are your general thoughts on Cordelia? Cordelia is pretty. It sounds strong and girly at the same time. I would use Cora as a personal nickname.
    How do you pronounce Cordelia? Cor-Deel-Lee-Ah
    What would you name siblings of Cordelia? I would name Cordelia's sister Wilhelmina and her brother Lucian.

    Cordelia is pretty and i want to like it, but my first association with it was the Cordelia from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which makes it kind of meh for me because it just reminds me of being a teenager. I think if i had the Anne of Green Gables reference first I'd like it better. As it stands note, i prefer just Delia

    Anyway, i pronounce it Cor-deel-ya because that's the way it was on the show.

    Good siblings for a Cordelia would be Imogen, Helena, Beatrice, Anne, Frederick, Gilbert
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    I love Cordelia; for all the reasons listed above. An Anne of Green Gables reference could never steer you wrong!
    I pronounce it cor-DEEL-yuh.
    As far as siblings go: Persephone, Winnifred, Margot, Josephine, Annemarie.
    Your 'previous names' also go very well with Cordelia; Madeline and Louisa do anyway.

I still think that's one of the best sibsets I've ever heard.
