Corr Spelling Variations



Spelling and translation were hardly exact sciences in Medieval Scotland. Sound, rather than any set of rules, was the basis for spellings, so one name was often spelled different ways even within a single document. Spelling variations are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Corr has been spelled Corrie, Corry, Corey, Correy, Corrye, Corie, Cory, Cawrie, Cawrey and many more.
