  • "I am called Corey and I am a guy. With a little bit of bias, I reckon I have a very beautiful name. I don't believe adding the extra "e" to Cory would make it more feminine; Corey is just as manly as any other musculine guys name. And I also believe that the true feminine spelling of Corey (or Cory) is spelt as Cori or Corrie. The "i" makes the difference." Jan. 6, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My husband and I named our son Cory. I felt that adding the "e" would have made it more feminie. So far he is the only Cory at school. So we lucked out. However, it is so hard to find things spelled Cory." Jun. 1, 2005: Report as inappropriate
