I think Thora is a very strong name, works well on a girl with a lot of confidence! And it's unsual without sounding "made up."

I think this name sounds way cool in English, even though it reminds me of 'thorax' and Thorazine. I hate it in Swedish, though!

A famous bearer of this name was English actress Thora Hird (28 May 1911 – 15 March 2003). Amazing/legendary actress! :)

Beautiful name with a slightly old-fashioned feel to it. Rather strong, as well. In any case, a totally usable and fun name.

I love the name! It was the name of the Norse god THOR, hence THORA is a feminine version thereof. And it means THUNDER (Thor was the god of thunder and war).
