You could just add an L to DH's mom and sister's spelling and do Ellanor or Ellanore* and use Ella as well I love Ellie...we are using that nickname too but doing Elliana. We are adding an L to the traditional spelling of Eliana. I just thinks it's cuter and lends itself to the nickname Elle/Ellie/Ella better. I prefer the spelling Ellanore! I actually picked out the nickname first then searched for the full name!
First of all, I LOVE Nora, and Eleanor is absolutely lovely.
If you don't like that spelling perhaps you would like Elinor - which I consider to be historically grounded and classic (it is the version used in Austen's Sense and Sensibility). I'm not a fan of any made up spelling, as for me, they tend to take a lot of class away from a very nice name. Just my opinion, however!
