KóRē > KORíNNA

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Korínna (Κορίννα)”, which in turn derives from “kórē ‎(κόρη)”, meaning “girl, young woman, maiden, bride, young wife”, and therefore has the same meaning as Talitha, Colleen, Zita. Korinna was an Ancient Greek poet, traditionally attributed to the 6th century BC. According to ancient sources such as Plutarch and Pausanias, she came from Tanagra in Boeotia, where she was a teacher and rival to the better-known Theban poet Pindar. Although two of her poems survive in epitome, most of her work is preserved in papyrus fragments.
