Nelie is a sweet, feminine name of Dutch and English origin and is a short form of Cornelia. It traces back to ancient Rome, where Cornelia Scipionis Africana set a timeless example as a model Roman woman and mother to reformers Tiberius and Gaius Sempronius Gracchus. Revived in the 18th century, Cornelia gets its meaning from the Latin word cornu, meaning "horn." Whether it is an adorable nickname or a moniker in itself, Nelie is perfect for a child with thick skin.
