Kora is a gender-neutral name with Greek origins meaning “maiden.” This historical name can be traced back to Greek mythology and the story of Persephone or Kore as she’s sometimes known. In the traditional Greek tale, Persephone was Demeter’s daughter and was sent to be the Queen of the underworld without her mother’s consent. Demeter, the goddess of the harvest, searched tirelessly for her daughter. Eventually, Zeus allowed Persephone to return to be alongside her mother on Earth during spring and summer. When Persephone returns to Hades the world turns cold and dark with crops unable to grow, hence why we get our seasons. If you’re a lover of Greek myth, this timeless tale may just tempt you to choose Kora.
