Mora, which is present in a few languages around the world, is originally derived from the Latin word for “dark-skinned”—thought to be referring to women of Moorish decent. If you’re a Shakespeare fan, think of Orthello, whose title character was called the Moor of Venice. It’s an uncommon name, and would be great for a future world traveler.
