I had a great friend in college who's last name was Cordes. And because there were so many 'Dan's' they all went by their last name. I started calling him Cordie. When I was pregnant with my younger son my sister thought I should find a name that I could use Cordie as his nickname. My sister also was a big Steelers fan, and at the time Kordell Stewart was their quarterback. His name is Cordel Zackaria. Also known as Cordie (at home) or Delli (at school). It fits him as at it's highest, there were only 40 Cordel's named in a year. A rare name, but not a weird one.
