Name Root:
(KÓRI) (cuire > Ó Comhraidhe)
This name derives from the English patronymic surname “Corey.” Ultimately the given name derives from the Old Norse personal name “Kori,” from the Old Irish “cuire,” meaning “a throng or multitude, a troop or company.” The name may be linked to another Norse name, in this case, “Kári,” from the Old Norse “Kárr,” meaning “curly (hair), obstinate, pugnacious, reluctant.” The name was particularly widespread thanks to the popularity of “Corey Baker,” a character in the television series “Julia.”
