I think it's a pretty name
- Personal experiences with the name Lenore: | Edit
As a child, hardly anyone could pronounce my name correctly (even aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents) which was very aggravating, But as I have gotten older I love the uniqueness of the name.
I can't see why Lenore is so hard to pronounce. It sounds just like it's spelled!
It's my middle name and I love it. It's a family name, my mother and my grandmother are also Lenores. I really prefer it to my first name.
