Korea vs. as a girl’s name

If you can use India and Egypt, I am sure you can use Korea. We have a good relationship with S. Korea, afterall.

I personally wouldn’t take the chance the people may have a negative connotation associated with it. I’m at a loss for similar suggestions but I gave it my best shot.

Coria (emphasis on Cor)

Hmm, I wouldn’t use it because of the history, but it is a nice sounding name. What about:

Keira? It’s similar but not the name of a country. But like the first poster said, there are babies named India, Egypt, Asia, etc, so why not a Korea?

I don’t like the sound and definitely wouldn’t want that association with North Korea, personally.
