Its source is a Latin expression meaning "Dark-complected."
The name Mora ranked 3940th in popularity for females of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.
Though this name appears on the 1990 U.S. Census lists, it is used by only a small percentage of the general population.
This name may be derived from a Celtic expression meaning ''great,'' or it may represent the convergence of two similar names, one of Latin and the other of Celtic derivation. In modern times, it is most commonly seen as yet another variation of Mary.
