For some reason I really abominate this name.

If this is your name, make people call you Corny for short. I hate this name passionately.
-- Taydbug112  12/15/2006
It is a beautiful name, it sounds very feminine and sweet.

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.

Czech pronunciation is "kawr-neh-lya".
-- Karcoolka  10/15/2007
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!
-- slight night shiver  4/22/2008
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.
-- Samantha-chan  6/18/2008
A bit old fashioned, if you ask me, but I do love this name. :)
-- _clippit_  7/26/2008
It's rather dated, and sounds like 'Corny Leah'.

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.
-- britto08  3/18/2009
Much less pretty than the name "Cordelia".
-- camilana646  3/31/2009
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. :)

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.
-- diamond  9/16/2010
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.
-- celt56  9/24/2010
I don't really like this name. Dated, and Lia would be better.

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]

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.
-- sunshinechild67  12/6/2012
Lovely name. I like it much better than Cordelia.
