She’s been following me around this week. It all started on Monday, when my sister created a new sim, named Nora. Then there was the TWO girls in the park together named Nora, and just as I sat down to draft another post on Friday, an episode of NCIS came on in the background, featuring a Nora.
So let’s talk about her, shall we? My father has a thing about Nora Batty, a character from Last of the Summer Wine. She’s a sterotypic northern lass, proudly devoted to strict housework. What she is particularly well-known for her wrinkled stockings, thus should I ever be near him in wrinkled socks, tights etc., my father would say something along the lines of: Look who it is, Nora Batty! I kid you not. My father also likes to jump in puddle shouting that he’s Peppa Pig, he really is a big kid at heart.
But back to Nora. She’s usually a nickname for Eleanor, but what else can she be short for? I went on a blitz, trawling through site after site, to come up with a list of possibilities, my favourite of which is quite probably Eleanora.
The Nor- Names:
Name containing nor:
- Honora/ Honoura
Anyone have any other ideas to add?
