Reply to: What is the origin of "Pora" by Beth Pora
There are at least three different origins of the surname PORA:

ROMANIAN: this surname exists in BUCAREST but to me the origin is not
clear

SPANISH: it comes probably from a nickname that means "puerro"
from "poireau".
ITALIAN:Extremely rare but PORA could have come from Calabria. But now
Pora families are not more than ten in the whole of Italy.
