'But, it’s a toy!'- A young child in Eleanor’s life, when told the front door he was hoping to open and close repeatedly, was, in fact, not a toy!

At The Bump
As a baby name writer at The Bump, Eleanor delves into the background and origin of all kinds of names to help parents pick one that fits their little one. From vintage classics like Christene to quirky choices like Catfish, every name has its own beautiful story to tell, and that is what Eleanor strives to demonstrate in her name descriptions.

Eleanor has always loved children, and her educational background reflects this. She studied at the University of Galway and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Children’s Studies, Psychology, and Sociology. Eleanor’s talent for creatively expressing written ideas shined through in her time at university. Working for The Knot Worldwide and The Bump has allowed her to further develop this talent, bringing her creative writing skills to new heights!

During her degree, Eleanor had the opportunity to undertake a work placement in a local school, fulfilling her lifelong passion for working with children with additional needs. She learned so much from this experience and loves how writing for The Bump still keeps her immersed in the world of childhood. Before starting her role at The Knot Worldwide, Eleanor worked in the tourism industry, where providing easy-to-access information to visitors to her town was her most important task. This background is useful in her current role, as she balances both information and an element of fun in each name description she writes.
