Corina is a feminine name of Greek origin, demonstrating a delicate and faithful nature. A variation of Korinna, Corina is a Latinised version of the Ancient Greek word korē, meaning "maiden." Originally Kore represented a statue of a draped young woman with one hand held up in offering—often thought to represent those in service to revered goddesses. But Corina can boast far more acclaim than a stoic presence and stiff smile, sharing close ties to the esteemed ancient lyric poet Corinna who wrote of Boeotian mythology. In any case, Corina is a name that holds many secrets and possibilities hidden behind alluring poise. Who knows what future your little one holds behind that youthful glint.
