Zora is a splendid girl’s name with a Slavic origin and has traveled well throughout the years in several languages. Meaning “dawn,” this fitting definition highlights how your own child acts as your own shining light. In recent decades, Zora has become more and more uncommon. However, the name was once a well-known girl’s name between the 1880s and the 1940s. A variation of the biblical name, Zorah, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Zora shooting up the charts in years to come. Why not beat the curve and kickstart the Zora revolution!
