Korinne is a girl’s name of Greek origin, meaning “maiden.” It derives from Kore, which was the original name of Persephone, goddess of spring and queen of the underworld. After being abducted by Hades, Kore made a deal that she would marry him if she could spend some time each year on earth. Hades agreed, and the time Kore spent on earth became known as spring. If you’re looking for a name subtly inspired by Greek mythology, Korinne is an excellent choice.
