- This one won out over Cordelia by a hair just because I love the nickname Nell.
- This is one classy name! It reminds me of the Golden Age of American ingenuity -- a name given to the daughters of railroad tycoons and oil barons. Cornelia could be a studious woman, or a party girl. You have the adorable nicknames of Nell, as well. It also has religious ties -- there are four Saints that are known by Cornelius.
- I love the sound of the name because is end with -lia. Is sounds sooo feminine! Cornelia Belulah would be a great combo.
Cornelia is the feminine form of Cornelius, a Roman name derived from cornus meaning "horn."
