Which do you like better? (Aurelia v. Cordelia)

FYI, I am not preggo, just name-obsessed. :slight_smile:

My boyfriend and I are stuck between these two names, [name]Aurelia[/name] and [name]Cordelia[/name]. Of course they are too close in sound to be sisters so we would have to choose one or the other… which do you prefer?

[name]Aurelia[/name] [name]Mary[/name] (Aw-REAL-ee-uh) nn [name]Aura[/name] or [name]Lia[/name]
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Lynette[/name] (Core-[name]DEAL[/name]-ee-uh [name]Lin[/name]-ETTE) nn [name]Delia[/name]

Which one goes better with brother [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Franklin[/name] ‘[name]Ollie[/name]’ and sister [name]Clara[/name] [name]Eugenia[/name] ‘[name]Clare[/name]’? Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

I absolutely [name]LOVE[/name] both names!! They’re both on my top 10 list, and so pretty! I would never be able to decide between the two, but taking into account sibling names (I adore [name]Oliver[/name] and [name]Clara[/name], too) and middles, I might have to pick [name]Aurelia[/name] [name]Mary[/name]. I don’t really think [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Lynette[/name] flows all that well, and I’m not sure about the two C names. Of course, if you call her [name]Delia[/name] all the time, it wouldn’t matter too much, and [name]Oliver[/name], [name]Clara[/name], and [name]Delia[/name] make a lovely sibset. Hm… now I’m kind of leaning towards [name]Cordelia[/name]! Sorry, this was probably no help at all… You can’t go wrong with either of those!

Honestly I dont really like neather…but I’ll go for [name]Aurelia[/name] because sounds for femenine to me, That just my opinion…[name]Aurelia[/name] flows well with [name]Marie[/name] so it has my vote!

Good [name]Luck[/name]!

For me, [name]Aurelia[/name] is almost a toungue twister. I prefer [name]Cordelia[/name] out of the two.

What about these instead of [name]Aurelia[/name]?
[name]Auralee[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name]
[name]Aria[/name]
[name]Ariella[/name]

Technically, I prefer [name]Aurelia[/name]. I’m not really fond of how easily it can be teased into words like oral and orally, if you see what I’m saying. There’s a snowball’s chance anyone will say it correctly and beautifully. I also think of that owl who says “O Rly?” http://typo.graphr.net/images/owl-orly.jpg

I don’t know if this meme has hit the kindergarten yet, but it doesn’t seem like it’s going away any time soon. It’s quite popular.

I don’t like the name [name]Cordelia[/name] at all, but there’s nothing really wrong with it. It’s not my taste. [name]Cora[/name], [name]Delia[/name], they seem ok, harmless. I love [name]Aurelia[/name], but I think it’s sort of ruined irreversibly by puns. [name]Aurora[/name] never really did it for me (beautiful meaning and attractive in print, but awkward to say, I think, or-or-a); I like it better than [name]Cordelia[/name], but I think you are really into that -elia sound.

[name]Aurelia[/name] is my favorite name of all time.
Something about the way it sounds, the prevalence of vowels and the soft beginning make it seem both regal and spunky. The meaning is also pretty, and I can just picture an adorable little [name]Aurelia[/name].
(By the way, I love [name]Cordelia[/name] too, just don’t like the [name]Cory[/name] nickname.)

I love [name]Cordelia[/name] so much, and was so happy to see it in the title!
:slight_smile: It’s one of my favorites. I love [name]Aurelia[/name], too, but I think pronunciation may be an issue (I’ve always said aw-[name]RAY[/name]-lee-uh).

I think that [name]Aurelia[/name], [name]Clara[/name], and [name]Oliver[/name] sounds wonderful, and while I love [name]Cordelia[/name] so much, I think that [name]Cordelia[/name] and [name]Clara[/name] sound a bit matchy to me.

So, while I love [name]Cordelia[/name] more, I think that [name]Aurelia[/name] works better with [name]Clara[/name] and [name]Oliver[/name].

I [name]LOVE[/name] your names! :slight_smile:

Have a great night!

I do like the original pronunciation of [name]Aurelia[/name]…the actual French way, I guess. Not so much of a fan of the Americanized way of saying it (for most of the above-described reasons)

[name]Cordelia[/name] isn’t my style…

I love [name]Aurelia[/name], nn [name]Lia[/name].
However, I don’t really like [name]Mary[/name] as a middle name with it. I like [name]Lynette[/name] with [name]Aurelia[/name]. [name]Aurelia[/name] [name]Lynette[/name] is very pretty.

[name]Cordelia[/name] doesn’t do anything for me.

[name]Cordelia[/name], while not my type i like much more then [name]Aurelia[/name], something bout [name]Aurelia[/name] sounds off to me. I cant quite figure out what it is, it seems like something i have known before just dont remember. But i also think that the comobo [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Lynnette[/name] alot more then the [name]Aurelia[/name] one. Best of luck![edited because im dumb]

I’m a big [name]Aurelia[/name] fan, but it’s actually pronounced Aw-ray-lee-uh. I studied Latin for 4 years, and [name]Aurelius[/name] was a very common name in Ancient [name]Rome[/name], [name]Aurelia[/name] being the feminine version (girls were almost always named after their fathers, even if they were the second or third daughter!)

I like [name]Aurelia[/name] (as pp says, prn aw-ray-lee-uh) but I think the teasing potential is too high. [name]Oral[/name]/orally as someone else said, and also areola. I couldn’t do it, myself.

I love [name]Cordelia[/name] nn [name]Delia[/name] though, and while [name]Clara[/name] and [name]Cordelia[/name] are a bit matchy for sisters, [name]Clare[/name] and [name]Delia[/name] are adorable!
