Nora is a retro name that enjoyed a heyday in the 1880s and early 1900s and is making a comeback in a big way. In a spate of trendy names like Nova, Nola and Noa, Nora is both popular and witty. During the Middle Ages, Nora was known as Honora. Nora is just a letter or two away from Flora, Dora and Cora. Norah is an alternate spelling (think five-time Grammy winner Norah Jones). Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy named his daughter Nora Kara in 2013.
