    Cordelia or Theodora

    Looking for opinions on Cordelia vs. Theodora.

    Cordelia has been on my list for a long time, but I have a hard time finding a nickname I like for it. Theodora has been growing on me, I love its regal yet intelligent vibe and the nickname options Thea or Teddy.

    In the future I feel as though I wouldn't have a Cordelia and a Theodora together.

    Which do you like better?

    Ooh, tough choice!!

    Theodora is clunky but in a good way -strong, feminine and lovely! Thea and Teddy are versatile nn choicea

    Cordelia is lovely, literary and such a joy to say!! I adore the meaning too and i thibk that sells it to me
    I'm sure you've heard them all before, but some nn could be Coco, Clea, Cleo, Cora, Delia, Dell, Della, Cody, Cory, Rory, Edie?

    I prefer Theodora. I love Thea! Cordelia has always sounded stuffy to me, almost like you’re saying Cornelia with a stuffed up nose

    I think both are great names, but I prefer Cordelia because she’s a bit more feminine to me.

    My pick is Cordelia. I much prefer the lighter frilly ending "delia" over "dora" and with Theodore being so popular this too has sadly lost a little charm for me.

    I definitely prefer Theodora!
    So many possible cute nicknames too.
    Cordelia just seems a bit aged and country to me!

    Let us know what you pick!

    I prefer Cordelia. Theodore is a very popular name at the moment, so Theodora just feels like a 'put an a on the end to make it a girls name' like Georgia or Daniella, which I'm not really a fan of
