Seems like more of a girl's name.

My oldest son is named Cory, I always did like it, it's not a little boy name. My Cory is 22 years old, 6'7 in & weighs an appropriate 175/180 so he is far from little.

It's an alright name but a bit babyish for my liking.

Cory is my father's name, but if it wasn't I would probably name my child Cory (CORE-EY)

This name screams African-American.

Cory! Very strong name. I prefer it as a male name. It reminds me of a protector. Someone that would fight for his love and beliefs. It is also Irish. Strong name.

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.

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.

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

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

The name Cory started as an Irish surname. It is derived from the Greek "corys", meaning "Helmet". It also means "The Chosen one" in Germanic languages.

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