Kore is a girl’s name of Greek origin. Simply meaning “maiden,” Kore was the original name of Persephone, the Greek goddess of spring and the underworld. Kore famously returned from the underworld each spring to reunite with her mother Demeter, and their reunion made the flowers bloom again. A more common variant of Kore is the Latinized Cora, which has become very popular in recent years. If you’re looking for a name inspired by Greek mythology, Kore is a very cool choice.
