Someone mentioned the name Coritye on a thread a while back as a Cornish girl's name and I thought it was sweet (assume it's pronounced cor-ih-tee?) but I can't find much info on it. Does anyone know what it means? Even if not, do you like it? It's growing on me...

Of course, it could have been a typo, which would be a pretty lame way to name one's baby....

Just makes me think of Coyote Ugly.

Hmm have never heard of it.

It's interesting that it's Cornish.
When I clicked, I just assumed it was a very modern name, maybe a mash up?

If you like the sound of it maybe you would like

Elowen is nice modern Cornish name, too. smile
Good luck!

Google throws up one person by this name - in Bournemouth. I wonder if she's the one who suggested it?

Ah thanks. Yes maybe it was someone promoting their own name!! Don't want it to sound like a mash-up name, so maybe back to the drawing board...

Westicle - I found the same, and only, Coritye (Coritye Jane). The only one in the whole of the UK. Agree it must have been them or somebody who knows them.

It's not a 'proper' name, it doesn't look Cornish certainly either.

I had a super quick search of US records too. Nothing comes up.
