Elenora is a feminine name of French, German, and Arabic origin. Derived from the English name Eleanor and the Occitan name Alienòr, this baby name is famously linked to Eleanor of Aquitaine, the Queen of France in the 12th century. It means “the other Aenor” in French, nodding to the relationship between the Queen and her daughter Eleanor of England. If your name is Eleanor and you’d like to give baby a title with a similar sound, or you adore regal history, a name like Elenora can be the perfect fit. Another possible origin is the Germanic Aldenor, meaning “old north.” In addition to these connections, Elenora is also often associated with the Arabic name Nurah, meaning “light” or “radiance,” often compared but unrelated to the Greek name Helen, meaning “torch.”
