This is my name, Cornelia Elena. I've always liked my name and felt it was unique, as I hadn't met another girl named this when growing up. I don't know why everyone is complaining about the word "Corn" being in it, even in English speaking countries, it's not pronounced like "Corn-eel-yah", I pronounce it, "Core-NEEL-yaw". No one calls me Corny either. Usually for nicknames, I am called Cori, Nele, or Nelly.

Friends of mine keep telling they’d name their daughter Juni Cornelia. I assume – and hope – they’re kidding, although I like puns.

Well... I'm not even Cornelia, I'm Kornelija and it sounds funny.

It's pretty and I like it... sounds kind of regal, flows nicely... yet, I have to prefer Cordelia, simply because I'm not sure how I feel about having "corn" in a name. >.< I think I'd rather not, given the option. (Makes me think of the masculine form, Cornelius, and how Thumbelina goes, "Cooorrrrrrnelius! Well, that's a funny name!")
But "Core" or "Neelie" would work well for nicknames.

Cornelia li Brittania is the name of a character from the anime Code Geass. I personally think this name sounds regal and imposing, old-fashioned but not musty or boring.

Italian pronunciation:

Kohr-NEYH-Lyah

"C" is hard, "K." "O" is as usual, "Oh." Roll your "R." "E" equals quite near to the English greeting of "Hey" (exclude the "H"). The "I" is stressed to "EE." "A" as in "Father." Although the last bit ("Lia"/"Lee-Ah") becomes sllightly morphed to "Lyah" when spoken. [noted -ed]

I don't really like this name. Dated, and Lia would be better.

I think Cornelia is a beautiful name; it flows off the tongue like music. The new kitten we adopted in June is named Cornelia Rose. We call her "Nell". She is named after our Cornelius cat, who just died this week. I didn't care for the name when we adopted him in 1996, but I came to love the name as I loved my cat.

This is one of the most beautiful names out there, along with Anna. I love the name Cornelia--it is truly a princess' name in the 1300-1400s! :) So beautiful.

This is quite a nice name, although when I hear it, it reminds me of someone wearing horns. It's not unpleasant, although I prefer the name Cordelia, which sounds a lot better in my opinion. Nevertheless, Cornelia is still a lovely name, and Corrie is a great nickname. :)

Much less pretty than the name "Cordelia".

Cornelia Johanna Arnolda ten Boom, better known as Corrie ten Boom, was a Dutch woman who helped and hid Jews during the Holocaust and was sent to a concentration camp for it. She is one of my heroes and though I hate the name Cornelia, I possibly would give a daughter of mine the middle name Corrie in honor of her.

It's rather dated, and sounds like 'Corny Leah'.

A bit old fashioned, if you ask me, but I do love this name. :)

It's a beautiful name. Even though there's a bunch of awful nicknames, the actual name is a personal favorite. It's sweet sounding, and looks good when spelled.

It's pretty, but it does have the ''corn'' in it. I don't like any of the possible nicknames, like Nelly or Neely, and certainly not Corny!

My mum's name is Cornelia but everyone calls her Lia. Or even Li/Lee (my dad). My mum really hates her name, and I don't personally like it either. So I guess my child will never be named after my mum.

If this is your name, make people call you Corny for short. I hate this name passionately.
