"My name is Cory. All my life people misspell it by adding an e. I was given this name in 1962 and I've never met anyone older then myself with the name. I have always liked my name and will often claim I was the first Cory." Jul. 23, 2015:

"This is my sons name he was born in 2009 and we loved the name and the unique way of spelling it but we have spelt it kori. Many people spell it wrong we have to spell it out to everyone but we have to do that with all his name anyway as its kori antony.." Jun. 14, 2014:
"My name is Cory and I've had a few people (not many but enough to tell a pattern) who insist on spelling it "Corey" diverting my name to something else completely like Chris, lol. Most issues have come from bosses at work. My Italian boss renames me "cors" pronounced like "cords" (i let him have it because he really had troubles pronouncing it in the first place, go figure) another boss, my current boss refuses to spell it without an e. I've corrected her twice. Oh we'll :/" Feb. 21, 2013:

"My younger brother is named Cory Patrick, and I've always thought it's a pretty neat name. I have to agree though that nearly everyone spells it 'Corey' but because the 'Corey' seems to be more popular, that just makes the name Cory much more unique." Aug. 1, 2008:
"Cory is a cool name. Its not really popular and sounds great." Jan. 2, 2007:

"I was given Cory the name in 89 so I fell victim to a popular 80s name and to be honest with you I rarely if have I ever met another Cory/Corey mere hand full of times. We have an eclectic name I stream on twitch and proud of it everyday twitch.tv/thereal_mccoy" Jun. 12, 2016:
"My last name is Cory and everyone also tries to put an "e" in it also." Oct. 27, 2010:
"I am guy named Cory and still "suffer" from others spelling it "Corey" or "Cori". I have even been addressed as Ms. since it can also be used as a girls name. If they actually knew me, they would have used the appropriate title. Or maybe not. Hmmm.
Even with the misspellings and confusion, it is a good name and I am happy with it. Ultimately, you make your own name. The comprising letters don't make it for you." Feb. 21, 2008:
"My husband is Cory. Everyone spells it COREY. Many people think it is a girl's name and he has gotten mail to Miss Cory. We both know a lot of Corys because we were born in the 1980, it is a pretty even mix of boys and girls with this name, just different spellings." Oct. 17, 2006:
"my name is cory and i think my name is so hot!!! i lve it" Apr. 20, 2006:
