How is this sibset?

I decided to name the Hutton children Sawyer, Maisie, Cor, and Adelyn. Not sure on middle names yet, but I think Sawyer’s will be Levi, Maisie’s will be Seraphina, and Adelyn’s will be Renee.

I like them except for Cor, which is a British slang term loosely used the way people in the US use "God".

Is it still in use, do you know? I kind of associate it with mid-century takes on Victorian Cockney, like My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins. It does seem odd to me as a given name, but I could easily see it as the call-name for Corey or something like that. Sort of like Con, which I see now and then in novels and have to imagine is short for Connor or Connell.

I actually just heard Caroline use it on an episode of "The World's Most Amazing Houses" on Netflix. I think it was in regards to one of the Norwegian houses.

Excellent! I'm always a little worried that my knowledge of non-local slang terms gleaned from the media might be based on ignorant misunderstandings or malicious misdirection ;-). I would love to know if you run across an authentic  "cor blimey!"

Swingin' on the flippity flop is just brilliant. I'm going to do my level best to work it into a conversation in the next week. And I'll keep an ear open for cor blimey.
