Nora Meaning
Short form of Honora or Eleanor. Henrik Ibsen used it for a character in his play 'A Doll's House' (1879). Most likely a diminutive of Honora, ultimately derived from Latin and meaning "honor". Some sources suggest it can also be a short form of Eleanor, which means "mercy, compassion". There is also a similar name in Arabic, which means "light". Nora is the name of the main character in Ibsen"s novel A Doll"s House, as well as the name of a 2000 film about Nora Barnacle, the wife of James Joyce.
