Could be from the Arabic word 'noor', meaning 'light', or a shortened form of 'Honora'. Peaked in popularity in the U.S. in 1880, when it was #55. However, it's currently #3 in Norway, so that's something!
Famous Noras: Nora Roberts, Nora Ephron, Norah Jones.
Fictional Noras: Nora (Pete's Dragon), Nora (A Doll's House), Norah Silverberg (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist), Nora Baker (Cheaper by the Dozen, 2003 film version)
My Noras: Just one, that I know of: a younger sister of a former roommate. She and I share our love for... actually, I can't think of any TV shows we don't mutually gush over. Funnest Nora ever. Also, I have a character called Nora, who is in the same grade as the MC's older brother. So far, we've seen her a couple of times, and that's it.
Any Noras in the crowd?
