Nora as a feminine form of Norman?
 
Originally I wanted to name this baby Lucia Morgan, because the name Morgan is connected to her great-grandfather, who died before our son was born (he was named after the same grandfather). However, I'm starting to think I want to name her after her other great-grandfather, Norman. Obviously we can't name her middle name Norman and I don't really like the name Norma, so do you think Nora could be excused as a feminine form of Norman? Nora was actually on our list for a first name, so we both love it, but I want her name to be connected to someone in her family. Or is Nora to far removed from Norman?

If so, does anyone have any suggestions for names connected to Norman? We don't like Norma, so that's out, but I can't find any other feminine forms of the name. Any suggestions?

I think Nora works as a feminine form of Norman. And I love the name! I have it on my "list", as Norah though. Very pretty! I can't think of anything else, other than Norma.

I think Nora is perfect and I think it honors Norman just fine! My niece's name is Nora and she is also my goddaughter name and she is ADORABLE.

I think Nora is a beautiful name, and it is not too far removed from Norman.

I absolutely adore Nora, and would use it in a heartbeat if my nephew wasn't Noah! I think it works perfectly fine to honor Norman.

Yeah, I think Nora can be used to honor her great-grandfather! Most definitely.
