Love this name. Very melodious and mysterious.

Lenore was also a poem by Edgar Allan Poe, presumably about the same person as in The Raven. What a beautiful poem. One of my favorites.

Maybe it's the connotation it's gotten with the poem, but I always think of a beautiful, tragic, serious person when I think of a Lenore. Definitely a pretty name, though.

In the animated comedy King of the Hill, Lenore is the name of Bill Dauterive's flighty ex-wife.

Lenore is also a comic character by Roman Dirge based on the story by Allan Poe, with lots of black humor and a gothic ambient.

I love this name, maybe even more than Eleanor. The problem I have is with nicknames. The only one I've heard of is Lee and I don't like that, so I suppose that I would use Eleanor nicknames instead. I think of a woman elegant in both background and nature. I would want to be thought of in that way. Some think that the name alludes to death and depression, but I think of calm when I read that poem. Lenore is a truly lovely name.

I'm positively enamored of Lenore -- I find it both sprightly and stately. ♥

In the UK, Lenore is a type of fabric softerner.

In the cartoon "King of the Hill", Bill Dotrieve's trashy ex-wife is "Lenore". This is probably why, although I absolutely love this name, and plan using it for a future daughter, I prefer the spelling "Leonore".

Lenore is dark, dramatic, and elegant, and I think much less old-fashioned than Eleanor. Still, I'm not sure how good of a first name it would make.

Lenore sounds harsh and grating to me. The very mention of the name, to be entirely truthful, gives me a touch of a headache.

Thanks a lot Emily, my name is Lenore, it's so nice to hear that mere mention of me will cause grating in your ears.

People often horribly butcher my name. French call me Leo-nor which doesn't make any sense, Germans call me Len-or-eh which phonetically makes sense. In America most people assume that my name is really Lauren.

Also, everyone who hears the name will think your parents are obsessed with Edgar Allen Poe. I was actually named for my Grandmother "Lenora". I sometimes use the Poe connection as a joking way of blaming my parents for my entry into the Goth scene.

Quite sorry, Lenore!

In the 2011 film "The Green Hornet," Cameron Diaz portrays "Lenore Case," as a supporting actress. Lenore Case is the brains behind many of the plans Britt Reid (The Green Hornet) and Kato take on-- though unknown to her at the beginning.

Directed by Michael Gondry.

Lenore seems kind of dull to me. I prefer Lenora.

From the Latin name Lenis meaning "mild, gentle, calm," or the Greek name Lux meaning "light."
