Corey is a gender-neutral name for baby boys and girls alike. This playful, youthful name has Irish roots and comes from the Gaelic word "coire," meaning "in or from the hollow." In the late 1960s, Corey got a lot of recognition thanks to the groundbreaking TV show Julia, which featured a young African-American boy named Corey. This unisex name rose in popularity in the 1980s thanks to teen sensations and movie stars Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. What's great about this name is that, despite being around for decades, it's less common these days, so it makes for a fresh and unique choice!
