Meaning:Victory; Warlike; Horn
Cornie has the distinction of coming from not one, but two ancient languages. This gender-neutral name derives from the Old Irish surnames O Cearnaigh, which means “victorious,” and O Catharnaigh, meaning “warlike.” However, it is also a diminutive of Cornelius, which is Latin in origin and means “horn.” Funnily enough, these definitions seem to go together to evoke Cornie’s spirit of battle-readiness and fearlessness.
