"my names Cornelia, sometimes I like it but mostly it makes me feel nerdy and "corny"." Apr. 19, 2010:
"My name is Cornelia, from my Dutch father's family. We pronounce it "cor-NEEL-ee-ah". My Romanian husband insists it should be pronounced "cor-NAIL-ee-ah." It's a common name in Romania, because it's originally a Latin name - but he loses.
It was a terribly difficult name to grow up with. I had the worst nicknames imaginable. Unless you live in the Netherlands or Romania, where it is a well-respected name, I would never name a child Cornelia. No one can pronounce it and everyone makes fun of it." Jul. 12, 2008:
"I had a guinea pig once called Cornelia but my dog broke into her hutch and killed her... I was so upset... that was back in '80 or so. Long time ago but whenever I hear that name it reminds me of my poor unfortunate piggy!" Mar. 31, 2007:
