Considering that our children tend to take on characteristics of their
namesakes, well...I don't know if I would have had the nerve.
Both Cordelias are in there, though I'd forgotten about _King Lear_ when we
first chose the name. And Elinor, of course--I did read _Sense and
Sensibility_ again recently. (The screenplay from the movie is incredible,
by the way. Emma Thompson kept a diary during the filming and the two were
published together, with photos. What a great book.)
What was interesting was the meanings--"Cordelia" of course being derived
from "heart" and "Elinor" most likely meaning "compassion." We chose those
names separately and look how that turned out.
