Zoraida is stunning. It sounds and looks lush and dramatic, has lots of oomph to it-- I can see this on a single-name famous celebrity or top model. I really like Zora and Aida as separate names, and I like that the two combined here doesn't seem like an awkward mashup name to me. A Zoraida would definitely be one of a kind in the classroom and a real life name sighting of Zoraida would be memorable for sure.
