What do you like better? We decided on one of these and I have been thinking I don't want it to be her name anymore.
And while we're at it, how do YOU pronounce Cordelia?
I say Core-deal-ee-uh

I think those pronunciations are interchangeable. I don't think it'd be noticed in conversation very much.

I have a hard time saying it, so I pronounce it like Core-jewel.

Idk. :P If I look at the name as a whole, it's Core-jewel. But if I focus on separating it, it's Core-deal-ee-ya.

I prefer Celia to Cordelia, but I prefer Cecily to Celia.
