When singer Norah Jones hit the big-time in 2003, she earned a Grammy for best new artist—and popularized her first name, which made the naming charts for the first time. It’s a slightly different spelling of Nora, an offshoot of Honora, which has Greek and English origins. No surprise that Nora/Norah means “honor.” Norah, which was briefly popular in the early 20th century, conveys a quiet, natural and honest spirit, much like her musical namesake.
