Comments for CORA:

I think this name is very sweet and pretty.

I like this name, it is cute, but I tend to think of my boyfriend's niece when I think of it. And it can sometimes remind me of spoiled children.

I like the form Corah much better, as with Nora (Norah), except for Sarah (Sara is nicer).

I've known several people with this name, and I've noticed that they're always, um, not too bright.

My middle name is Cora, and I was named after my Great-Grandmother. I think it's lovely.

This is the name of the curly-haired little girl in Titanic.

I thought it was a good name, and for a few years there I had a good friend called Cora, but she turned out to be a total jerk, so that pretty much ruined the name for me.

Beautiful.

Korah is also a biblical name.

I really like Cora. It was very popular in the late 1800's. It's simple & sweet. I like it as a nickname for Corinne & Cordelia too.

Derived from the Greek 'kore', it was first used as a given name by James Fenimore Cooper in The Last of the Mohicans.

A very, very warm name.

This is a beautiful name, but I've gotten the impression that it's considered grandmotherly. To me, this sounds like the name of a gorgeous young woman with long, wavy, naturally red hair, pale, smooth skin, chubby red lips, green eyes, and lovely curves. Well, I feel the same way about Coralie and Coralyn, which sound even prettier than Cora alone. The name just sort of reminds me of Laura, which reminds me of Laura Schlessinger and Laura Ingraham, ugh. One way to spell the Quran in Europe is Koran, and that also comes to mind. Other than those things, I love the name.

I like this name. I think it is short and sweet. It also reminds me of the former Mariner Joey Cora, which is good I guess.

I LOVE this name! I spotted it out maybe in 1998 or 1999 from a baby names book I own. (I've got like 5 though). Anyways, my first impression was that this name is quite delightsome and I really really like it. Then, if I heard right, Jack said to Cora when they were dancing in third class that watch this Cora and then Jack danced with Rose. Then little adorable little Cora smiled THE sweetest smile and net her head to the side a bit! SOOOO cute! So after that, I only imagine a cute curly bron haried brown eyed little girl as a Cora. Next time you watch Titanic, look out for that part! So yeah, I love this name!

I also found out about this name from the Titanic! I think that adds to the reason I love it so much!

My name just happens to be Cora, and other than the difficulty of finding it on key chains and such, I really find it to be quite lovely. It's sweet and simple, and the fact that it is rather old fashioned really fits my personality. If you want a unique name for your baby, Cora is a great choice. I have never met another person with the name Cora before.
-- CurlyQ  9/6/2008
Such a sweet name, and one that grows up well with a girl. I, along with apparently a lot of people, picture the adorable little girl who Jack in Titanic dances with and calls his best girl when I think of this name. I think it works well as a middle name as well.

Cora Sandel was the pen name of the Norwegian author Sara Cecilia Margareta Gjorwell Fabricius (1880 - 1974).

Crazy Cora was the main female character in the movie Quigley Down Under.
-- YMPvt  6/12/2009
I personally love this name. It was the name of my father's feisty grandmother who died just before I was born, as well as the name of the strong and beautiful woman in The Last of the Mohicans, one of my favorite movies. I think it works beautifully as a fist or middle name, grows up well, and has sweet, strong connotations. Perfect!
-- britto08  7/30/2009
Cora is a really ugly name. It puts me in mind of a badly dressed, gum snapping Jersey girl with a really coarse accent. The name Cora just screams "tacky".
-- LakeGirl  8/10/2009
Waterfall in Scotland on the Clyde: Cora Linn. Of Celtic origin meaning Maiden, Linn meaning Waterfall. Also an alternative for the Greek Persephone or Kore.
-- Corazie  8/11/2009
I love this name! It's so old-timey, and elegant sounding, rolls off the tongue nicely, and if that's not enough think of the little girl from Titanic, I would definitely give this name to a daughter!
-- Curlytop78  9/29/2009
I like it. But it's on its way to becoming popular!

This name is also used in The Netherlands, where it can not only be a short form of the names mentioned in the description for Cora, but also a short form for Cornelia.
-- Lucille  6/9/2010
This name is beautiful. :) Very feminine.
-- GirlWithN0Name  2/6/2011
I really like this name, but I think I'd probably use it as a nickname for Cordelia. :-)
-- walesgal92  7/5/2011
The eponymous protagonist of the Nickelodeon series The Legend of Korra (sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender). Her name is pronounced the same way as Cora, but the spelling reflects the naming conventions of the show's Water Tribe, which tends to use a lot of K's and schwas.
-- Hazel Grace  9/28/2012
I have a friend who named their daughter 'Chora Belle' I think that Chora Belle sounds too 'cutesy' though. I like plain Cora so much better.
-- Anonymous User  1/2/2013
I love it. It's simple, feminine and beautiful and goes well with both little girls and older ladies.
-- Alexanna  5/7/2014
The name is only fit to a certian grouping of people for example people who admired that wholesome and strong name. Fortunately Cora has many varieties to it, so if you want a more modern version then I think Coraline and if you want a more sensual version then Corrine but finally if you want a more cutesy name to go with Ruby, then Coralie is the name for you. This name is rich with so many other varieties. Also, if you want one with more history, then try Cordelia. To me, finding a middle name for this name family is easy because no matter what, it sounds endearing. For example, my favorite name combo is Cordelia Alice which means Noble heart or maiden and it's just so classy to me. There's so much more, I hope this helps!
