You can't go wrong either way - such a pretty name, and it's simple, sweet but strong and grows up well!

I prefer the more straightforward Nora.

Either way is fine, but I prefer Nora.

Which is kinda funny, because I prefer Sarah over Sara lol

I agree, either one is really fine, but I personally prefer Nora. Such a pretty name!

Spellings seem so arbitrary sometimes, lol, I know the quandary...

But anyway, I think it is just an individual case by case basis with names as to what looks right spelling-wise.

For Nora/Norah?

I like the minus-an-h spelling best for some reason Nora looks cleaner to me, although I do understand.

(I had a Chera or Cherah question, lol. Somehow minus an h looked right for that name too)....
