Such a cute name!
Apparently also used in Bulgarian, spelled Лора:
I think this is the more practical spelling, it dosen't have as many letters as Laura and you wouldn't spell Dora and Nora as Daura or Naura. I do prefer Laura though.
Allegedly also used in Hungary: -- mention ist as a variant
Also Slovene:

I have heard that it is the common name for a flower in Swedish, but I haven't confirmed this.
My mom's name is Lora, some people call her Lori. I like it, it is very classic & simple at the same time.
This name is ok, unless you add an 'a' in front of the 'l' making Alora which is simply stunning!
I have only head this name a few times, but every time I heard it it was always pronounced LOW-rah.

My mom's name is Lora, and I LOVE IT! It is a better spelling than Laura, in my opinion!
I love this name and I like the way it's spelled. But I having trouble finding a middle name (other than Lee) to go with this name.
I believe there may be some Scottish root to this name. There is a Falls of Lora and a Beinn Lora, outside the village of Connel near Oban on the west coast of Scotland. I've found some sources which say that the falls were so called by Ossian the blind poet who mentions in his work a Dun-Lora, Lora's Heath and Battle of Lora among others. So far however, I haven't found a meaning.
