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

Corrie Ten Boom, (the Christian Holocaust Survivor) and her family not only hid Jews in their own home, but ran an entire underground ring in Haarlem for hiding or smuggling Jews to safety.

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.

A famous "bearer" of the name is the British television soap Coronation Street, which is usually abbreviated to "Corrie".

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