Cordova was originally called Hunkins, in honor of pioneer settler Benjamin Hunkins, and under the latter name was platted in 1887 when the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad was extended to that point. Due to the similarity with the name of another post office in the state, Hunkins was soon renamed Cordova, after Cordova, Spain, in order to avoid repetition. A post office called Cordova has been in operation since 1888.
