I love this name, it's so pretty. =) I believe this name means "Meadow Light" if you pronouce it *LEE-nora* because Lee means Meadow and Nora/Ora means light. Don't quote me on that though. Even if it doesn't it's a beautiful name.

Lenora is such a beautiful name! I love it, it's my favorite version of "Eleanor". So enchanting and soft, just lovely!

Lenora is such an elegant name. It is soft yet commanding all at once. I think it would suit a person well all throughout life. Lena would be a good nickname if you wanted to lighten it up during childhood.

Lenora is the name of Stevie Ray Vaughan's wife. But he called her Lenny for short, and I personally think that's so cute! Plus, she bought him a $300 strat guitar for his birthday (so sweet). Stevie wanted a guitar like that, and Lenny had asked 6 people for $50. After she gave it to him, he wrote a song for her, called LENNY! And it's such a beautiful song... I can't even listen to it, it will make me cry.

Lenora was one of the invented names most common and popular in the Soviet Union from about 1917-1940. It was a smushing-together of the first letters in each word of the phrase "Lenin is our weapon." As far as these invented Soviet names go, this is one of the ones that looks and sounds pretty normal.

It may have been invented in the Soviet Union in the 1910's, but it had been around in the United States for at least 30 years before that.

Looove this name. So beautiful and elegant, but very uncommon. It does have a tendency to sound like LaNora, which makes it seem like its just a ghetto mash up of the la prefix and Nora, but its so much more than that. It's a gorgeous name with history and class, and if you pronounce it le-NO-ra rather than la-NO-ra, you should be good :)

I named my daughter Lenora, and I love it. People compliment her name a lot. I'd really wanted the nickname Nell for a girl. Others have suggested Lenn, Lenny, or Norry. My husband just calls her Nora. One of the nurses she's had said a Lenora she went to school with went by Leena. So far, she's too much of a Lenora for anything to stick though.

I was named Lenora, after my great grandmother. I personally cannot stand this name. Even my great grandmother, Lenora didn't like her name, and went by either Lee or Lena. I have always been called Lee, or LeeLee when I was younger. Some people that have known me all their life, still call me LeeLee. Eventually, I will have it legally changed to Lee. You really have to choose baby names carefully. Just because you like it, doesn't mean the child will. Trust me, I know!
