First name will be Nora, and our last name starts with "P" and is 2 syllables. Name meaning is important to us, and we want to know if there are any negative connotations we're missing. Feedback is super welcomed. Thanks!

  • Nora Eileen doesn’t sound bad IMO and the meaning is most important

    Nora Eileen.  The flow is fine and the meaning is more special.
  • Vote Nora Eileen.  Also, would you consider Nora Mamie and call her Nora Mae?  I think Nora Mamie would work fine and also is a special meaning for you.
  • Personally like Nora Mae and love the spelling of Mae. Why not have two middle names for your daughter? Nora Mae Eileen. I have two middle names to honor passed family members and I love it.
