Would you spell it Eleanor or Elinor? Which nn would you use?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I like Eleanor a lot, but am a bit afraid to use it with all of the Ellas, Elles, and Ellies floating around. I love the way that Elinor looks, and appriciate that that was the way it was spelled in Ella Enchanted. I prefer Nora as a nn.

Eleanor. I don't know about a nickname. I'd probably just call her Eleanor!

I have the same problem ... someone, somewhere will call her Ellie and I'll have a total meltdown. :lol:

Then I also have an aunt named Ellen. She's nice enough but she would go out of her way to make sure everyone knows "the baby was named after her" (it would NOT be but she's weird like that). Then we'd have hurt feelings when the next wasn't "named after" a different aunt or uncle. :rolleyes:

I don't think I'll use it for those reasons but it's lovely. If the El- names weren't so popular I might.

Oh wow, I don't like Eleanor at all.
I like Elin but not Elinor. My favorite variant is obviously Lenore or Lenora.

i love the name Eleanor...i never thought about the spelling elinor, but i think i like that even better.

nmsaa...but I prefer the spelling Eleanor. I actually think the nn Ellie is cute...also like Ella. My fave nn that you could get away with is Nora...

I prefer Eleanor, and I LOVE Elle, Ella, and Nora--don't ask me to decide!

I like Eleanor spelled both ways - but i'd probably go with Eleanor as a spelling. Pretty name!

Not a fan of Eleanor or Elinor. I LOVE Nora, but on its own.

LileighBelle March 15th, 2007 02:12 PM

How about Ellena?? I would use Ella or Ellie as a NN!
