Tachibana (立花) - Translates to "wild orange"
Nora (ノラ) - Translates to either "light" or "woman of honor", depending on its origin being either from Greek or Latin.
The nickname Maka is a play off of the author's real name (Mackenzie).
In truth, the name has nothing to do with the author, rather the character the user got her name from. One of the character's verbal tics is "-nanora", which is played in the name (Tachibana Nora). Also, "-nora" is a second verbal tic used.
