I would use Cora as a shortening. Just worried it might be too poncey.

i really like it, and i could never be described as posh!

It is posh, yes. But I do quite like it anyway smile. I once worked with a very posh 'Cordi'. She was super beautiful and cool.

Cora is a lovely name, btw - in it's own right.

it has connotations of posh - but is still lovely - don't let that put you off using it, as it is a classy Shakespearian name.

I know a Cordelia, she is a very strong beautiful women and the name really suits her. Its a nice name.

just to go against the grain - I think it is uber posh!

but I think that would also depend on what you and your family are like. A posh person saying Cordelia is off the scale posh but a less posh person might make it sound more 'normal' iyswim.

Cora is nice though.

Podrick Mon 18-Aug-08 20:39:36

It is a bit posh, but it's also gorgeous.

I think it's lovely too - also reminds me of the wonderful Anne of Green Gables!
