With its vintage feel, Cornelia is perfect for any parents who think their little girl will be an old soul. This Latin name means "horn," with one of its ancient bearers being Cornelia Scipionis Africana, the daughter of Roman military hero Scipio Africanus. She was seen as the ideal Roman woman, making her name a popular one for babies at the time. One of the name's most famous modern associations might be with Taylor Swift's song Cornelia Street but you'll find many other Cornelia's that made a name for themselves throughout history. It was the name of Julius Caesar's first wife, a Christian saint, and the name of Angelica and Eliza Schuyler's paternal grandmother, to name a few.
