Meaning:Shining light; Light-hearted
Much like Emma, Charlotte, and Grace, the name Eleanor is back in the spotlight! For a rarer alternative, consider its twin, Elinore. This trendy pick for baby girls has the same vintage charm but with an edge that will help baby stand out among their peers. Elinore is rooted in Greek and has the illuminating meaning of "shining light" or "light-hearted." As baby grows, so will their inner light and intuition. They'll undoubtedly be a dreamer and need your words of encouragement to help them reach for the stars! One notable person who shares the name is former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
