    Thoughts on Hosanna and Annora...

    What are your thoughts on Hosanna and Annora? From my research, Hosanna is a Greek name meaning "praise," while Annora is an English variant of the Medieval Honora, meaning "honor."

    So, do you like them? Together? Separately? With a nickname - Annie? Any similar names you like, but still somewhat "classic"?

    "Names, once they are in common use, quickly become mere sounds, their etymology being buried, like so many of the earth's marvels, beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie

    Hosanna doesn't really grab me. It seems somewhat clunky to me? It does remind me of Johanna a little (pronounced Yo-hunna), which I like.

    Annora is lovely, I hadn't heard it before. It has a lovely meaning and good nn choices - annie or nora. I like it a lot.

    I agree. I don't like the sound of Hosanna but I think Annora is very nice.

    Annora is lovely, but don't you just know
    Hosanna will only be nicknamed a "Ho".

    I actually love both, although nephele has a point about the possible nn for Hosanna (and I hadn't thought about that before). I love the sounds of both and the meanings of both and I love that both could use nn's Ann or Anna.
