A variation of Cora and Corey, this name can always be a reminder of how tiny baby once was. A girl's name of Greek and Irish origins, Cori has a variety of meanings. Deriving from the surname Corey, this short and sweet moniker is linked to two Irish words. Coming from coire, Cori signifies “cauldron” or “from the hollow,” but from cuire, it means “throng,” “troop,” or “company.” The Greek connection stems from Cora, meaning “maiden.” It could also be a variant of the name Kore, which was a name used to refer to the Greek goddess Persephone to signify her status as the goddess of spring growth and vegetation. Persephone might be most famously known as the goddess of the underworld, but as Kore, she was worshipped for overseeing new growth and the life and death of crops. Baby Cori can find inspiration in Kore's love of the natural world around them and treat the earth with respect.
