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 both, but probably prefer Clara.

Much prefer Cordelia.

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

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

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

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

Clara is a fab name

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?!

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.

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

Clara's on my list, I love it!

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?

Hmm...see I don't know anyone in real-life of either name.

Am thinking Clara though.

I like both names actually.

Clara from he Nutcracker and Cordelia from The Happiest Millionaire (although she had the nn Cordi).

That wasn't very helpful, was it!

I'd probably choose Cordelia, if it were my choice.

Both are really lovely.

I am not keen on Cora though so I'd say go for Clara.

Clara is lovely :-)

Much prefer Clara. Cordelia is remarkably frilly.

I prefer Clara, Cordelia makes me think of orange squash!

I love Cordelia

GreatJoanUmber Wed 28-Aug-13 18:08:40

Love Cordelia, it's on my list! Sadly DH isn't keen.

I know one 5yo Clara, but no Cordelias.

I love Cordelia, and really really like Cora OP.
