We named our youngest daughter this in 2010 after my greatgrandmother, named Lenore. We call her Nora as a nickname but everyone we meet absolutely loves her full birth name. I'm sure it's a bit heavy for a 4 year old but in 60-70 years, it's going to fit her perfectly.

Perhaps it is pronounced lin-o-ra in English but this is an Italian name and its pronunciation is leo-no-ra.

This name sounds weird, makes me think of a leotard, and the 'n' makes it sound kind of nasal.

No offense but I just don't like the sound of this name. There are many much prettier names out there.

Other sites list this name as meaning "light" in the Spanish tradition or "brave as a lioness" in the German. All are interesting and still a beautiful name!
