"My name is Honora, as was the name of my Swiss grandmother. Absolutely love the name! Was taught by Sisters of the Presentation of the BVM (PBVM) whose foundress was Honora (Nano) Nagle; they had not known anyone else who bore that name (That was in around 1960; am 74 now.) Mom pronounced it On-Or-Uh; lately have used HONOR-a, easier for people to spell correctly! ("Honor" then add an "a"). Have lived with a lifetime of misspellings and mispronunciations!"
