Lenora

Leonora is one of several similar names fashionable in Europe and slowly making its way to stylishness in the US. Lilting and lovely, it’s got far more heft than today’s groovy L names like Lola and Lila. Original a shortening of Eleonora, it has the distinction of playing leading roles in three operas.
