I like them both. I think for Cordelia we'd probably go with Cora as a nn. I imagine Clara might be a bit more popular at the moment but how much? Do you know children by either name? smile

I like them both! I think Cordelia wins out though.

I remember a documentary about poverty in britain ages ago with this sweet little mite called Cordy, she talked about "mi ma, brushin mi 'air" or something similar. I loved Cordelia (and especially Cordy) from that moment. Wonder what happened to her?

Clara's on my list, I love it!

I love Cordelia and have it on list for DD2. Unfortunately I think DH may veto it. No taste.

I have never met either a clara or a Cordelia - but i LOVE both of them. And I think I may nick Clara if I ever have a girl (oh how i want a girl). Clara is the name of a woman from a novel and it's now bugging me which one....? I would go for Clara if I had to choose but only because Cordelia reminds me of King Lear. But I love them both.

Like Cora, don't like Cordelia and don't like Clara. So I am no help to you! Cordelia also has a hard time in Lear doesn't she?!

Clara is a fab name

Yep, vetoed by DH sad. DD2 is going to be born with no name.

I love Cordelia, bit different
Can be Cordie or Delia as a nn

I love Clara, does remind me of Heidi... but that is lovely memory of a childhood book.

I prefer Clara. Cordelia is too long and fussy for me.
