I love this name and its meaning, simply beautiful. It is probably my first favorite name. I also happened to find out that this is what my aunt told my parents to name me. Bummer! I don't care though, this is what I like to be called. ;-)

By the way, it is also Hebrew for "light." Being the feminine form of Lior, which is also "light." That really makes it deLIGHTful and enLIGHTening. :)

Lovely name! Reminds me of a lyre or flower. I like it better than Lior, though both forms are nice.

Liora is my Hebrew name that I picked for myself (my parents stuck me with Yaakov, which means Jacob). I love the meaning of the name for its poetic and positive qualities, and the name itself has a lyrical, unique sound.

Liora is actually made of two Hebrew words: "Lee" (=to me/mine) and "Or" (=light). The ending "ah" is often used in Hebrew names to make them feminine (as in "Daniela" or "Michaela"), though the form "Lior" is also used for girls (in Israel anyway). So it means not just "light" but "my light".

Sometimes spelled Leora. The name is virtually synonymous in meaning with Orli - also popular in Israel.
