A beautiful name, rare but not strange. I love it.

This is my name. I was named after my great grandmother, and my family has always pronounced the name "Huh-nor-ah". I've also heard it pronounced "On-nor-ah", with the "H" silent, more like the word "honor".

When you read it, it's very obvious and slightly cheesy, but said aloud it's absolutely gorgeous. On-or-uh.

Wow. It's the word 'honor' with an 'a' stuck on the end. It's entitled, and not even pretty.

This sounds almost Maori!

It's best pronounced with a silent H. It sounds much prettier that way. I first encountered this name while doing genealogy research on my Irish ancestry. It's a very old name. I found reference to the name Honora as far back as 1346.

This is amazing! I like it much better than Honor. I like Honor too, but Honora just seems more name-y to me, and the nickname Nora is stunning.

Pronounced ON-er-ah? Yech. Sounds very tacky and pseudo-fantasy like to me.

I think this is a beautiful name. It's rare but not bizarre, and it has a feeling of class and sophistication to it. I first came across it when researching on Titanic victim Honora Fleming.

This is a beautiful, rare name. It's pronounced like Ah-NOR-ah, and is a gorgeous alternative to Nora.

Honora is a family name, on my father's side. My aunt (and Godmother, now 98) holds it, as did my grandmother and now a cousin. My daughter intends to keep the tradition going.

In Avatar: The Last Airbender, Zuko was always concerned with "regaining his honor," so it became a running joke in the fandom that he named his daughter Honora (until her real name was revealed).

I think it's a pretty name.

This is my name, and one woman in each generation has borne the name for over 200 years. Our family is from Ireland, and I can categorically state that the "H" is indeed pronounced and that the emphasis is on the second syllable.
