Really nice name, when I have kids of my own I will keep one of them by this name. Briliant name!

Noor may be short for Eleanor/Ellinor. I've also heard it may be derived from the Greek "Eleos" - compassion, mercy. Either way I love both the short, sassy Noor and the Dutch diminutive Noortje.

In Arabic this pretty name means "the light". For example, the famous Jordanian queen was actually called Noor al-Hussein "the light of Hussein (her husband, the king).

In Dutch Noor or Noortje (a diminutive version) is most likely short for Nora or Eleonora. [noted -ed]

Spunky, gorgeous, and simple. Noor is mysterious and alluring, and would make a romantic first or middle name. It has ancient charm, but modern versatility. Very chic!
