Cora is the name of an evil sorceress in the fantasy television show, Once Upon A Time. She's also known as the Queen of Hearts for her penchant of pulling people's hearts from their chests, including her own. This weeks episode gave us Cora's back story, but I won't go into it here because I don't want to give away any spoilers for those who haven't seen the episode yet. An up to date description of the character can be found here

Cora Goodbody was a Hobbit in the Lord of the Rings.

Cora is an acronym for "Computer, Oral Response Activated" in Battlestar Gallactica. In other words, it was the voice of the computer in vipers. It often flirted with Starbuck.

Cora is also the name of an experimental rocket designed by the French. 

Cora is a Greek name that means 'maiden'. Cora was ranked at #15 in 1880, the first year of data available in the U.S. It declined continuously until the late 1980s, when it began to climb back up the charts. In 2011 it ranked at #204.
