Norissa is a feminine name that is a fun spin on the Irish name Nora, which is, in turn, a short version of the Latin monikers Honoria and Eleanor. Coming from the Latin Honoria, it translates to “women of honor” and can be a great choice to remind baby that they’re destined for future glory. Eleanor, on the other hand, can translate to “the other Aenor” and is also considered by some to be a variant of of the Latin Helen, meaning “torch” or “the bright one.” Whether you want to encourage baby to take the other, less-traveled path in life or strengthen their dazzling light, Norissa can make for a gorgeous choice.
