About Nora

Go back to names list

Nora is most probably a pet form of the Latin name ‘Honora’, meaning ‘honour’. It is however sometimes also thought of as a variant of the Irish name Fionnuala, in which case it would mean ‘fair shoulder’. American singer/songwriter Norah Jones bears a variant spelling of this name.
