Meaning:Pleasant sounding
Placenames have symbolic meaning when it comes to naming baby. Perhaps you want to pay homage to your heritage or you want to memorialize a place that holds happy memories or significance for you. Sonora is located in Mexico and borders California. It means "pleasant-sounding" and is a Mexican name for baby girls with a lovely, soothing quality. Names like Nora and Hanorah have similar-sounding qualities, but we think there's something truly unique and lyrical about Sonora!
