Norah or Nora is a very very common female Arabic name in Arab gulf countries, especially Riyadh the capital city of Saudi Arabia.

In the Arabic language it means light (ex. The sun light)

Nor is a rare male and female name which means the same (light)

The h at the end is usually indicated to feminize the names in Arabic.

I really like this spelling of Nora. It looks more complete, somehow.

Nora in Polish means a lair of a small animal, like a fox or a rabbit. The implication here is that it's dim, dark, dirty and unhygienic... not something you'd expect in a pretty girl.

I personally do not like this name because to me it's an overly trendy and common name.

Norah Silverburg from the movie Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is a somewhat famous bearer.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist was actually a book first. If I remember correctly, Norah says that her name actually was Nora but she added the 'h' after her father didn't sign Norah Jones.

With this spelling, I always thought it was a Hebrew name. It sounds almost Biblical; I like it very much.

I love this name! It's so pretty, and although it's increasing in popularity, it isn't all that popular right now. For some reason, it seems to look more complete with the 'h' on the end, but I like Nora too.

It's really quite pretty. Simple but sweet. I prefer it with the h on the end.

I adore the name Norah. I used to hate it, but my name being Norah Margaret, I've grown accustomed to it. I think anyone who dislikes this name has little or no taste.

Norah was the name of the main female character in Mary Grant Bruce's Billabong books. I didn't like this name when I first heard it but it has grown on me.

Beautiful. Very WWII sounding, and it's better with the 'h' on the end.

My name is Norah Margaret, but I really don't like the Norah part of it. I want to be able to have a nickname other than "Noah." I hate when people mistake me for a Noah, because my friends start calling me that.

In Carol Shield's book "Unless," Norah is the eldest daughter who leaves her family and lives mute in the street with the sign "Goodness" around her neck. The character is quite powerful.

Norah is my mom's name. I've always thought that it's a dignified, stately name.
