Reminds me of Lenora Crowley in "Letters to L.C" on HPFF. It is a lovely name and I'd definitely use Lennie like she did; Leo could work at a stretch as well.

and we ended up naming our daughter Lenora in October :)

I don't agree that this name sounds "aged". Nora is trendy again, and to me, Nora as a short form of Lenora would be beautiful, and I like the name in full, also.

This site needs to update it's info. I think Lenora is a beautiful name and it means "shinning light."

abliss Says:


This name is growing on me and I really like it now. I love the nn's Lena and Nora :)

I really love this name! I'm very unimpressed by the info provided here on it, which is only someone's opinion that it sounds "more aged" than another name (an opinion, by the way, I heartily disagree with). As someone else said, a name's Nameberry info should not just be one snarky comment. I know an artist with this name and I think it's quite lovely and unique, not to mention easily pronounceable. I think it would be a beautiful choice!
