Baby Name Needed – Girl Name to go with Norah

A reader named Dacia needs a few name suggestions:

My husband and I have decided on Norah for a middle name (his grandmother’s name), but are having trouble coming up with a first name.

Both Norah and the baby’s surname, which starts with an F, are trochaic (stressed-unstressed)…so I made sure to throw in some names of other rhythms, for variation. Here’s what I came up with:

Adelia
Audrey
Beatrix
Bella
Camilla
Celeste
Charlotte
Daisy
Eugenie
Geneva
Grace
Harriet
Judith
Lilliana
Lucy
Miriam
Molly
Monica
Penelope
Rosella
Sadie
Stella
Sylvia
Trudy
Verona

Do you like any of the above with Norah? What other names would you suggest?

  1. All name options I think of sound better with Norah as the first name. Norah Grace Fuster. Norah Penelope Felder. Norah Anne Fillips. Norah Celeste Franklin. Norah Miriam Flitter.

    Nothing really sounds good with Norah in the middle unless the first name is Ella, giving her effectively one name (and Ella Norah as two names sounds really silly anyway).

  2. Jasmine Norah
    Stephanie Norah
    Beatrix Norah (me like!)
    Darlene Norah
    Helena Norah
    Paulette Norah

    By the way, my name is Dacia, too. I hate it…but it’s nice to see it out and about once in a while. Someday I hope to go to Romania and stay at the Hotel Dacia, drive a Dacia Logan car, and visit the Dacian museum. We were quite the cool people. :)
