Noor is a popular Arabic name which can be used for both girls and boys, equally.
Noor means "light", or "bright".
It can also mean enlightened, beautiful, attractive, noble, illumination, wise and radiant.
It is regarded as a beautiful name with wonderful meanings.
It is a name of Arabic origin (not Hebrew, not Hindi, not Urdu etc). Noor is found in the Islamic holy book, the Quran, and is therefore an Islamic name in origin.
Nora is one variation on the name Noor, however, Nora is used for girls only, whereas Noor is for both boys and girls.
Sometimes, girls who have been named Noor are nicknamed Nora because it sounds more feminine in Arabic (even though Noor is a perfectly acceptable name for females as well).
My sister's called Noor but she when she was younger everyone called her Nora.
The diamond Koh-i-Noor means "Mountain of Light", and was one of the largest diamonds ever known.
