    I'm a UK berry and would have gone for Nora. Whichever works best for you is the better option, though, either way people should get the pronunciation right.

    I prefer Nora over Norah but then again I prefer Sara over Sarah and Hanna over Hannah. The silent h at the end just seems so unnecessary.

    However, Norah is fine and I would't think it is a problem if that is what you prefer.

    I like both and think both work as a first name. Use what you like,

    My niece is Nora, so I am partial to that spelling, but I don't think there is anything wrong with Norah.

    I like both, actually! Both look complete to me but I would instinctively spell it Nora. I'm from the UK and I'm not sure who Norah James is.
