Meaning & History

In the year 1935, a contest for naming an orphaned baby girl was held in the radio show 'Betty and Bob' with a price money of $10,000.

Mrs. E. M. Nelson of Minnesota suggested the grand prize-winning name Norita, a name she had created from an Old English word for “foster child,” norie (also spelled nory, nurry, etc.). The word ultimately comes from Old French nourrir, meaning “nourish.”
