Welcome everyone to my blog!

Nora-Cassandra! That’s my birth given name.

Where did my name come from? I’m half Finnish and half Kuwaiti, so the name my parents chose for me had to be the right name that worked in both countries.

Nora is a name comes from Noora, which means Honor and Respect in the Finnish language, and also from the name Noor that means to illuminate in Arabic. But I found that The girl’s name Nora \n(o)-ra\ is pronounced NOR-ah. It is of English origin. And it’s short for the Greek name Eleanora that means light! And it’s also used as a feminine form of Norman.

Well that was the boring part of my name. The second part is the interesting part!

Cassandra is a Greek name. Cassandra was a Trojan princess blessed with the gift of prophecy. She foretold the fall of Troy but was unheeded. The name was occasionally used from the Middle Ages until the 18th century. But the name Cassandra means SHE WHO ENTAGLES MEN! I asked my mum why they gave me the name Cassandra even though we don’t have any Greek back round. She said it was just a beautiful name!

I think there is no one else in this world that carries my special name. Nora-Cassandra!

I hope you’ll like some of what I’ll be posting about. Enjoy!
