CORDELIA.  Shakespeare's English form of Welsh Creirdyddlydd (q.v.), meaning "token of the flowing tide" or "daughter of the sea."  Also see Cordeilla.  Usage: America, Australia, Canada, England, France, Great Britain.
    Cordelia Fine, an Australian academic psychologist and writer.  Cordelia Bugeja, a British actress.  Cordelia Mendoza, an American author and antiques expert. (Wiki)

... Shakespeare loved his sweet Cordelia too well to stain her with self-murder, and, though omitting all allusion to Christianity, made her in all her ways and actions a true Christian, and never perhaps showed more consummate art than in producing so perfect an effect with a person so chary of her words...
    Cordelia is hereditary in some Irish families; but is chiefly used for love of Shakespeare's heroine of filial love. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
