  1. Hi! Is there any way you could make the rest of this article visible? I’m very interested in this name right now and would love to read the rest of the post 🙂

  2. I’d really love to read the post on Noor. It’s still not working properly, as I can only read the first line. Thanks Abby!

  3. I had never heard this name before reading this, and then today I see that a little girl named Noor will be going to my son’s preschool in the fall. Her Mom’s name is Am@ny, so it appears to be an Arabic family. Can’t wait to meet a little Noor!
