Meaning:maiden
A variation of Cora, this name can always be a reminder of how tiny baby once was. Cori, a girl's name of Greek and Old Norse origin, means "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 her and treat the earth with respect.
