Cory: baby boy name meaning and popularity


A Gaelic name meaning "from the hollow," derived from the word "coire," which meant "cauldron." But the only "hollow" thing about your little Cory will be his legs - at least, that's what it'll seem like when he puts away astonishing quantities of food in one sitting.


Cory doesn't really have any good nicknames.
