Name apparently coined by James Fenimore Cooper for one of the characters in The Last of the Mohicans ( 1826 ). It could represent a Latinized form of Greek Korē ‘maiden’. In classical mythology this was a euphemistic name of the goddess of the underworld, Persephone, and would not have been a well-omened name to take. Nevertheless, this has not proved an obstacle to its use in the English-speaking world.
