I'm pretty sure it's NOT derived from the Greek.

I have read that the name is Irish meaning Hollow. This is a nice name for a boy.

UK birth records bring up two variants, Coryton and Coryndon, both place names, so they're probably also sources for its English usage.

Cory is taken from the root word for heart in Latin "cor": the Medieval Latin word cor (heart; mind, soul) which was derived from the Proto-Indo-European root "kerd-". This Latin word is the one which gave the Romance languages their words for heart: French - coeur; Spanish - corazón; Portuguese - coração; Italian - cuore; Provençal - cor. So, the English meaning for Cory is heart, tender hearted, brave hearted.

This was going to be my name if I had been a boy. My name was going to be Cory Donovan, and then I ended up being a girl. My parents had one more kid together who they named Ryan Keith and then my dad had a son with my step mom who he named... Cory Donovan. That kid is connected to me for life.
This name is cool in that it's one of those names you can have fun spelling. Cory, Coree, Corey, Kori, all sorts of stuff.
