Hi, another Leora here! It's originally Hebrew.
Lee = me/mine
Orr = light
Ah = a name of God (alternately, if you don't like having God in your name, 'ah' can just be a feminine ending).
So, its direct Hebrew meaning is 'God is my Light'. If you want a secular definition, Leora can also be translated as 'a light unto me' or 'my light'.
