British dancer and actress Moira Shearer (Dumfermline, Scotland, January 26, 1926 - Oxford, England, January 31, 2006) bore this name. She appeared in six films - The Red Shoes (1948), The Tales of Hoffmann (1951), The Story of Three Loves (1953), The Man Who Loved Redheads (1955), and Les collants noires and Peeping Tom (both 1960). Though she remained a dancer more than an actress, in movies she is, however, best remembered for her performance as Vicky Page in The Red Shoes.

Moira McTaggert from X-men. She was a Scottish scientist and friend of Professor Xavier.

I think Moira is an awesome name! I think it's way better pronounced MOY-ra because I can't think of many names that sound much like that. It gives it originality. When people pronounced MOR-A I think it just sounds like other common names like Dora, Nora, etc.
