Because I like Cordelie and Corinne, I love this name for a girl. Kore is my favorite though.

This isn't a females name...
It's just a males name with a feminine\prissy spelling. Same goes with Kori\Korie. Etc

My name, Corrianne, is a combination of my two grandmothers' names, one being Corrie and the other, Anne.

Corrie is a fairly common Dutch name. This is the first I've heard where it is being attributed to English sources. It is possible that it originates with the Norse Kori, but English? I think not. The very use of the 'ie' on the end of the name is Dutch, indicating a diminutive, as with Corrie Ten Boom's name - Corrie being the diminutive of Cornelia.

Corrie is a Scottish surname, from the names of places in Arran and Dumfries. It is sometimes used as a first name in its own right.

In one book I read that the meaning of this name is from the hollow. I think it was Latin.
