From the ancient Greek word "Kori'Annon", which was the name of the spice, but also the name of a woman ornament.

Coriander can also be used as the full form of Cory.

Coriander has to be the world's yuckiest herb!

I would always stress the 3rd syllable: "kor-ee-AN-dur".

The herb is gross, but I love the name.

I am not exactly sure why you would name your child after a spice. That's kind of weird. Kind of reminds me of Koriand'r from Teen Titans aka Kory Anders. Hm.

This is just really werid. I suppose the next kid will be Oregano.

I've also seen it as Corianda.

Some names ending in -er sound feminine, like Amber, Piper, and Winter. This isn't one of them. It sounds masculine to me. On the other hand, it doesn't sound like a name to begin with, and it just seems weird as one.

This feels more like a masculine name to me and I usually treat it as such. Also, I'm pretty sure when I looked it up on a different name site, it was listed as masculine. No matter, I absolutely love this name, whatever gender it is.

A coriander seed used to be used to start the dipping process in making a jawbreaker candy and the leafy parts (cilantro) are used in making salsa, I figure that the meaning for the name Coriander should be "sugar and spice and everything nice."

According to Wikipedia (see, "lust" is the symbolic meaning of the Coriander flower, in the Victorian-era language of flowers. Yikes!

Coriander is an awesome name, and you could always shorten it to Cory or something. But this name sounds so masculine, and is better on a boy.

This name is full of spunk and provides two decent nicknames: the obvious Cory (or Cori) and Andi.
It sounds like a very strong feminine name, or a strong masculine name. I, however, like it on a girl.

This name is on my guilty pleasure list (for a girl). I think it's adorable and has the nickname options of either Cori or Andie. I'd never be brave enough to use it though.

Coriander is the name of the main character of I, Coriander by Sally Gardner; so ever since I read that book, I've really liked this name.

Good name for a fictional character... she would be known as Cory and then she'd be totally embarrassed when the others find out her real name!
-- xgirl  5/26/2014
I've always thought Coriander sounds very masculine. I don't think I would ever use it for a girl.
