norah

SHORT FORM OF:
honora, honoria, eleanor, eleonora
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  french (provençal)  /  latin 
NAME ROOT:
(ALIÉNOR) (HŏNōRĭUS)
MEANING:
Norah is a feminine personal name and represents a short form of Honora, Honoria, Eleanor, and Eleonora. The origin and meaning of Nora are debated, and several possible etymologies have been proposed. 1) The name derives from the Provençal name “Aliénor” which became "Eléanor" or "Eleonore". 2) Another suggested source may be the Germanic name “aldenor”, from “aenor”, meaning "old north". 3) The name may also be ultimately connected with the Arabic name “Nurah”, (Arabic root: n-w-r > nur‎), meaning "light, luminous, radiant, brilliant"; for several centuries, Provençal speakers lived in proximity to the Iberian Arabic-speaking “Al-Andalus”, now Andalucía and there is considerable evidence of cultural influences.
