Cory is a gender-neutral name with multiple origins. This beautiful pick derives from the Irish word coire, meaning a "troop." Although this translation is admittedly a bit strange, it's only the beginning! Cory may also be rooted in the Greek name Cora, meaning "maiden," and the goddess Persephone. Despite being the queen of the underworld, this daughter of Zeus is forever tied to spring flowers and nature's beauty. Lastly, many may think of the Arabic association to the name Khoury, meaning "priest."
