I had a boyfriend whose name was Noor, but according to him, it was short for Noah. He was Muslim. Does anybody know how common this is?

I love this name! Especially since this is my middle name. Noor is easy to pronounce, has a lovely meaning, and doesn’t sound all that ugly. Plus it makes me feel a bit more unique since my first name is Sophia (Sophia is also a name I love but I understand that it has gotten too popular).

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!

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).

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.
