“zora.com” was first registered as a domain by founder Britta Boland in 1998. She simply followed an intuition and liked it because it was short and easy to remember in both English and German. Imagine that: at that time you could still register a domain consisting of just a four-letter word!

ora Neale Hurston

“… was an African-American folklorist and author. Her best-known work is most likely “Their Eyes Were Watching God.” (Wikipedia). We admit that we had never heard about her until we googled ‘ZORA’. She definately has the most entries there and it could very well be that she deserves them.

ie rote Zora

“Die rote Zora und ihre Bande” is a children’s book by Kurt Held first published in 1941. It is a story about a group of five orphans. They sometimes have to steal food or other little things to get by. While they might break the rules of society they deeply respect the code within their group.

ora la vampira

Our Italian friends think of this one first. Zora the vampire is the heroine of a popular erotic comic from the 70’s. While we doubt that riding a horse topless would look that good anywhere but on a still image we get that the missing frames do spark their imagination.
