I'm sorry if this topic is already made, but I am super curious what norns are your favorite!
My two top faves are the banana norns and white haired pixies! Although I do love the bloom norns a lot too!
Personality wise I love treehuggers too! I love their faces!
Good taste! The Bananas and White-Haired Pixies are both adorable.
I love the Hebe norns. They're quintessentially cute norn, I like their big ears and spots and super dramatic expressions, and I also like how they males and females are similar without being the same or slapping eyelashes/make-up/curls on the females. (Somehow I can go 'yes, sure, the Shee gave them genetically programmed hairstyles', but makeup is bit too much haha.)
I'm also partial to the '97/Golden Santa (I like the extra pop of color and frosty ears compared to the older one), and for C3/DS, the Gargoyle and Butterfly norns.
C1 - White-haired Pixie Norns. They are adorable little things.
C2 - I'm not as familiar with these breeds, especially since I never played this one, but going by what I've seen, I quite like the Emerald Norns. I am also aware that C2 has its own version of the WHP Norns, which also look quite cute.
C3/DS - I'm probably the most familiar with (some of) the breeds for these games, since I've played them the most. I think Bondi Norns are my favourites for these ones, although I also quite like Bruins and Fallows.
I based my choices on official breeds, since I'm not overly-familiar with fan-made ones.

As far as C1 goes, I always liked the Pixie norns most. I really liked the male horse norns too, but found the hair on the females a bit strange. For C2, I liked the Hebe norns the most, then perhaps the Emerald norns. For fan made ones, I enjoyed the Siberian Wulf Norns a lot. They were so fluffy. For C3 my favorite would be the Civet, and for DS I am fond of the Treehugger and Zebra norns. For fan made breeds of C3/DS, I really enjoy the Apple norns, Curiosa norns (both versions, honestly), and the Wood norns.
There really are a lot of great ones out there for third-party content, so it is hard to list just one (let alone three). I'm pretty sure I have a third-party breed for every slot available.
Gosh I need to look into C2. Hearing all other norn breeds is exciting!
My favourite would be the ChiChi. They are nice and simple and purple - and just look at those spots.
Curiosa norns (both versions) have my heart but in terms of official breeds I like Fox Norns, Forest Norns, Emerald Norns, Frog Norns, Astro Norns, Toxic Norns, Bondi Norns...
For me of the official breeds i like Bengal Norns, Chichi and Bondi. From the unofficial i like Draconians, Aquanorns, Pearl Mermaids and Dreams Norns.
I'm very fond of the Kunterbunt Norns - they were the first thing I ever downloaded online as a kid, and I remember being very excited about it.
I would probably break it down on a game-by-game basis like this:
C1: Banana, Pixie
C3/DS: Bondi, Astro, Bengal, Flora, Butterfly.
I would argue that Bondi is a strong contender for my overall favorite. I love their color scheme and how their skin reminds me of light shining through water. Them and the Astro Norns were the first mall breeds I ever wanted.

C1: Male horse norns, male purple mountain norns, female banana norns
I remember being very confused as a child because I didn't realize that opposite genders of the same breed had different faces and hair. I thought my norn tribe was overrun with weird mutations. I think I finally put two and two together when I got a purple mountain norn with lipstick.
C3/DS: Treehugger and hardman norns
As a gardener, I love the the treehugger's leafy green fur pattern and relate to their nature loving personalities. I like the hardman norn's ruffled fur and foxlike features. When they strut around all angry trying to look tough, it just makes them even more adorable.
