- Comments and insights on the name Lorena: | Edit
My name is Lorena and its pronounced lor-E-na but everyone always pronounces it loraina, which is not the way its spelled. Also its pronounced exactly the same way as the small town outside of Waco, Tx and although people pronounce the town properly they never pronounce my name properly.
Elanor, Elnora, Lenora and Lorena are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.
The name was probably derived from the popular Civil War era song/poem "Lorena" about a broken engagement. Before this the usual form of the name was "Lenore", as encountered in Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven."
I once was dating a woman by this name. Her usual nickname was Lor, but she also used Rene as a nickname
