Nora is a lovely, refined name that conjures up images of Belle Epoch ladies in fur-trimmed coats skating in Central Park, the independent Ibsen heroine of A Doll's House, and the female half of the witty Nick and Nora Charles duo, adding up to a most desirable choice.
Nora--long seen as a quintessentially Irish name--is a quietly stylish favorite tiptoeing up the popularity ladder. It is now at Number 107, the highest it has ranked since 1913.
One of Nora's most prominent contemporary namesakes is the late witty writer Nora Ephron.
It is also found spelled Norah, as in Norah Jones.
