Cornelia was a widowed Matron (mom) in ancient Rome. The story goes that she was with a group of women who were displaying their jewels. When they asked Cornelia for hers, she presented her children, who were her treasure. When Cornelia's sons grew up, they became great Roman reformers, and Cornelia was held as the ideal Roman matron. My children, and what they could become, are my treasures. So, while I'm not her, you can call me Cornelia, if you want to.
