For literary buffs, the name Lenore might have a dark, morbid association thanks to the Edgar Allan Poe poem of the same name. But this beautiful girl’s name, a variation of Eleanor, actually means “light.” Lenore has an elegant, vintage feel that plenty of parents aspire for— all the more because of the adorable nicknames, such as Leni, Nore (NO-RE) or Ore (OR-E).
- french: Light
- greek: Light; like a lion
