Welcome to #Namemas, a collaborative name celebration and Christmas Countdown.
On the 7th day of Namemas TulipbyAnyName gave to me the baby name Cornelia.
Cornelia is one of the characters in the 1985 film Santa Claus: The Movie.
Cornelia is a Latin feminine form of the name Cornelius meaning horn. I often mention the name Cordelia, which I adore, but its rarely used sister name Cornelia is also a lovely choice. Cornelia was a virtuous choice in ancient Rome. Today Cornelia is rarely used and was only given to 28 little girls last year. If you like the grandness and rarity of Cornelia you may also enjoy Cressida, Camellia, Cassia, or Calista – none of which are in the Top 1,000.
