    Name Meaning

    Dutch, German, Danish, and southern English: from the Latin personal name Cornelius (originally an old Roman surname, probably derived from cornu ‘horn’), borne by a 3rd-century pope and Christian saint. In England, this name is rarely found before the 16th century, when the name was brought to England from the Low Countries by Protestants, among whom it was also a popular name in the vernacular form Cornelis. In North America, this surname may also be an altered form of the German or Dutch variant Kornelius.
