I've seen this name more often lately. How is it traditionally pronounced? Honor-ah of oh-NORA? I live near a street called Honore (Honor-ee), so I always pronounce it Honor-ah.
Also, do you like it? I've been liking it a lot lately!
The one person I know pronounces it
I love it.
I also like Honoria
I would say Honor- ah
Very pretty name!

I think traditionally it is NOT pronounced honor-ah, but a-NOR-ah or aw-NOR-a.

My initial reaction was to say Honor-ah. It's okay IMO. I actually like Honore (Honor-ee), the street name you mention, better! :)
I have a "thing" about names that will get mispronounced a lot... my DD's name is one of them and I kind of wish I thought it about it more before choosing it (even though I think the proper way to say it is beautiful). I think Honora would be one of those constantly being mispronounced names.
I'd say Honor-ah.
The second I saw it the movie Gladiator popped into my head. Not that someone is named that, but I instantly thought of it.
iluvmytxrgr:To me, it looks like onORAH. nbsp;It's NMS.
Dislike. I think it looks weird and would be mispronounced constantly. I would never choose a name that I wasn't sure of the correct pronunciation myself.
I know it's totally legit name though!
Not a fan.
I much prefer Honor.

based on the replies, looks like you'll have to pick your favorite pronounciation and she'll have to always let people know what it is
Also, I would think hard about Honor for a girl. Middle school can be cruel. Actual overheard conversation 2 years ago: "who's your science partner?" "Honor" "You got Honor?" "I'd get on-her if I could" lovely mature 6th grade boys.
Honora is my daughter's name (nn Nora). It's pronounced uh-NOR-ah. http://www.pronouncehow.com/english/honora_pronunciation
It's not a common name, so you're more likely to have to pronounce it than you would with something more familiar like Olivia. If you're concerned with pronunciation issues, Annora and On?ra are accepted variations that are a little more obvious. http://www.behindthename.com/name/honora
