I find Annora irresistibly darling; it's also delightfully uncommon! ♥

This name is a rare beauty indeed. It is beyond gorgeous and has a wonderful meaning. I'm shocked it's not used more.

It is beautiful, and I tried to say it out loud. Immediately, the words anorexia/anorexic came to mind. It's a shame, really.

Interesting. It makes me think of "An Aura". Which oddly makes me think of the moon. Plus, it's catchier than "Honor".

I really like the name & am still considering it for our daughter. The only downfall I noticed was when I told my family about the name & my dad said it out loud, it sounded kind of like "annoying". Maybe it has something to do with the New England accent, because it doesn't sound that way to me when I say it.

I think this is much better than Honora or Honour/Honor. It is also a nice alternative to Anna or Annie.

Annora can also mean 'the light' in Arabic. It comes from the words 'An', meaning 'the', and 'nura', light.

This is easily one of my top ten favorite names. Absolutely beautiful.

What an wonderful name, and to my viewpoint, it's much better than plain Anna. The Ann in it is where the similarity is observed. An out of the ordinary, great name with delight.

Anora Mac Tir is the name of the potential queen in the video game Dragon Age: Origins. Her name is spelled with one N rather than two.

I love this beautiful and feminine name - I'm attracted to the combo Annora Clare (Clare in that spelling to preserve a medieval English vibe).

While Annora certainly sounds like it's a variant of Honora, there is the problem that Honora was not really used in England before the late 1500's when it started first as Honor/Honour, then Honora and Honoria. Whether it came to England with the Normans or not, its modern popularity was mostly as a virtue name, post-Reformation. I think Annora's medieval popularity only makes sense as a form of Alianora, i.e. Eleanor, an extremely popular name during those times, with many other early variants: Annot (not from Anna apparently), Nell, Elen (not Helen), etc.
