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 and now sits comfortably in the Top 50 at Number 41, an all-time high.
One of Nora's most prominent contemporary namesakes is the late witty writer Nora Ephron.
It can also be spelled Norah, as in Norah Jones.
