  3. According to a user from Washington, U.S., the name Sanora is of Mexican origin and means "Sonora Mexican name, translates as 'pleasant sounding'. , (also since my name is Sonora I have told of what the meaning interpretation. Sonora is a beautiful woman.. In the urban dictionary it states; Sonora is. the most beautiful girl you know. She's very loud and she knows it too. She doesn't care about what people think... most of the time. Everyone loves a Sonora!. This is from wikapedia. One theory states that the name was derived from Nuestra Senora, the name given to the territory when Diego de Guzman crossed the Yaqui River on the day of Nuestra Senora del Rosario ('Our Lady of the Rosary'), which falls on October 7 with the pronunciation possibly changing because none of the indigenous languages of the area have the n sound. Another theory states that Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca and his companions, who had wrecked off the Florida coast and made their way across the continent, were forced to cross the arid state from north to south, carrying an image of Nuestra Senora de las Angustias ('Our Lady of Anguish') on a cloth. They encountered the Opata, who could not pronounce Senora, instead saying Senora or Sonora. A third theory, written by Father Cristobal de Canas in 1730, states that the name comes from the word for a natural water well, sonot, which the Spaniards eventually modified to 'Sonora'. The first record of the name Sonora comes from explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, who passed through the state in 1540 and called part of the area the Valle de la Sonora. Francisco de Ibarra also traveled through the area in 1567 and referred to the Valles de Senora.[11] The literal meaning of 'sonora' in Spanish is 'sonorous' or 'loud.'".
