Meaning & History
Diminutive of CORNEEL as well as of the related names CORNELIS and CORNELIUS (for men) and CORNELIA (for women).This name is only used informally, meaning: so far it has not been used as an official name on birth certificates. It is also rather old-fashioned and one is more likely to encounter it in Flanders (the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium) than in the Netherlands, because the diminutive suffix -ke is used more often there than in the Netherlands, where the diminutive suffix -je is generally preferred (as such, see CORNEELTJE).
