    Leonore vs. Leonora

    I've recently fallen in love with both of them and can't decide which one I like better! Your opinions would be greatly appreciated. I pronounce them lee-oh-NOR/ lee-oh-NOR-ah
    Thanks in advance

    I like frillier names, so my vote goes to Leonora, but I think Leonore would be easier to pair with middle ending with -a sound.

    Actually, Leonore & Leonora can be pronounced the same way, 'lee-o-nor-ah'. The -e is not silent if using the German pronunciation. Leonor is 'lee-o-nor'. If you use the spelling Leonore you get the best of both worlds

    Personally I prefer Leonore 'lee-o-nor-ah'. It looks more sophisticated and less frilly than Leonora
