Cord is a boy's name that truly pulls on the heartstrings. Traveling back to the rope-making Egyptians, Cord finds its feet at the beginning of many great societies. The craftsmanship of twisting and weaving together ropes and strings was first referred to as corde in Old French in the 12th century. It originates as an occupational name for a "cord maker." From here, it gained a musical quality by the late 16th century. As a bonus, cordero is the Spanish word for "lamb," making your little Cord as sweet as a lamb in its wooly blanket!
