Corris is a village and community in the south of Snowdonia in the Welsh county of Gwynedd. It lies in the historic county of Merionethshire/Sir Feirionnydd. Although the Snowdonia National Park covers much of the area around Corris, the village is not within the park. The name is possibly derived from the English word "quarries", and the extensive slate quarries that surround the village are its most prominent historical feature. However, The Place Names of Wales (published Newport, 1912) states : "We find the forms Corys and Corus in the Cambrian Register for 1795. Some think the place takes its name from a saint called Corus. It is also said that Cunedda Wedig had a son called Coras. Others think that the river which gives the place its name, was called Corus from its making round excavations in the angles of its banks." The name Corris is also shared with a small river in Denbighshire, a tributary of the Clywedog which in turn flows into the river Clwyd. It is extremely unlikely that the name Corris is a derivation from the English word 'quarry'. Both the Meirionydd and Denbigh Corris predate the rise of the slate industry. The population of Corris community was 723 at the 2011 Census. Wikipedia
