Firstly, Greek and Latin are very different languages and a name can't just be Latin/Greek - it has to originate from one or the other.
Secondly, that is not what Nora
means. That meaning is a garbled version of two possible sources for the name - Honora
, meaning 'honour', and Eleanor
, which as a version of Helen
is sometimes given as meaning 'light'. It doesn't. It possibly means 'torch', and there are another couple of possible meanings. It is by no means certain that Eleanor
comes from Helen
, so that meaning for Nora
is even more doubtful.
When you look at the hard evidence, the resemblance between Nora
and Nor / Nur
is clearly a co-incidence.
