I have really fallen in love with this name over the past few days. I've never heard the actual full name. It was always either Delia, Cora, or Della. I could really see myself using this on my own child. I really like it paired with Lark.




Cordelia Lark





What do you ladies think?

I like Cordelia, its pretty. I kinda stumble over saying Cordelia Lark though, maybe a different middle name?

I LOVE Cordelia. It is such a pretty name, and I've never known anyone with it. I'm not sure I like Cordelia Lark, but I do like Cordelia so much.

I ADORE Cordelia!!! Lark as a middle sounds a bit like a surname but nice enough :) Perhaps another bird, Cordelia Wren? :)

It's not really my style, though I think it is pretty. Lots of nn potential there.

What I think of when I hear it though, is Anne of Green Gables. Anne was obsessed with the name, and Diana eventually named her daughter that. So, indirect literary connection :)

Cordelia is a name I am considering if I ever have another daughter. It's elegant, beautiful and uncommon. Though, my nickname of choice would be Lia. I have Cordelia Grace and Cordelia Autumn on my list. Though, I did look over Addy's suggestions and I like Cordelia Addison and Cordelia Rosalie.

Cordelia Lark is very beautiful! As is Cordelia Wren <3 I love nature names though, so may be a bit of a bias towards the middle names ;)

Cordelia is really pretty! Cora / Delia / Della as nicknames would be sweet too. I agree with the previous posters... Cordelia Lark is a bit difficult to say. I think Cordelia Wren and Cordelia Grace are great alternatives though!
