Long story short-my mom's mn is Eleanor as was her mom's first name (my mom was adopted) and my aunt's name (distant aunt) is Nora...which I absolutely love. We were at a funeral this evening (close relative but expected) and my aunt was there, so DH got to meet her and talk to my mom (who lives out of state)

my mom said earlier today we should name the baby Eleanor and call her Ellie (DH kinda liked the name before.....)

so on the way home, I brought up the fact that I like NORA (again) and of what my mom said (after bringing it up to my aunt in front of him by the way) and he says ok. YAY!!! So....see my siggie!!! (oh and I know Grace is overused as a mn, but DH actually wanted it as a first name and I said no bc of its popularity....I gave in bc he gave in on the fn-fair trade I think).

Eleanor is classic and elegant! I like both Ellie and Nora as nn... you'll just have to wait and see if it's a little girl, and then decide which nn suits her better!

Claire is my favorite, but I understand your reasons for not wanting to use it. Eleanor would be my second choice.
