Pronounced "NOO-ree-ah". Its origins might be Basque but it's possibly influenced by the Arabian name Nuriya "bright, shiny".

My name is Nuria and I never write Núria, I write Nuria without stress. I like my name, it's original. I suppose they think it because Nuria is a Catalan name but all people called Nuria aren't Catalan! Really it doesn't matter! I'm not bothered with what they said but I laugh when they do.

There are two variants:
-from the Basque words: N-URI-A = Valley
-from the Arabic: NUR = light, shine and its strictly feminine form NURA

The more common form of the Marian title is la Mare de Déu de Núria (literally, the Mother of God of Núria). The same goes for other Catalan Marian titles (Our Lady of Montserrat is la Mare de Déu de Montserrat, Our Lady of Meritxell is la Mare de Déu de Meritxell, etc).
