Reply to: Liora by Elinor
I've found Liora as a "more Hebrew/Jewish" form of the old French name Aliénor. It was introduced by Jews around 800 AD. It also became popular into Christian families, especially if they had Jewish roots (like Aliénor d'Aquitaine, called Eleanor of Aquitaine in England). It means in Hebrew: "God is my light".

Other forms are: Alianor, Alienora, Aliora, Elianora...
